Feeling at home

Michel and Hanneke Deneef, a brief introduction

Like any other house, at Deneef’s house no day is the same having three daughters and a son. One day we relax on the couch, the other it’s an open house with friends; the more the merrier. We love it!

What makes us happy? To give guests, friends and family the feeling they are more than welcome. One day we organize a fancy dinner, whereas the other we host a winter barbecue in the snow. Even spontaneous drinks or dinners are what make our hearts jump.

‘We had always dreamt of our own bed and breakfast’. Questions like ‘where and how?’ arose. In 2012, by accident, we stumbled upon this old vicarage and fell in love with it in an instant. Soon ‘for sale’ changed into ‘sold’. Our dream was about to come true!

Our goal is to bring about the conviviality and kindness to our guests as we experience in our family. Our aim is to realize the most beautiful, loving and hospitable venue of Tilburg. We will be very pleased when we reach that.

When our children were kids, we had a vintage bell right next to our door. As soon as it rang, it meant ‘dinner is ready, so please come home’. These days, this same vintage bell can be found at Villa Pastorie. We love to ring it for you: ‘are you coming home’?

On behalf of our team at Villa Pastorie,
