The Zonnebrug: what to do?
De Zonnebrug Holiday House is located nearby Zeeuws-Vlaanderen and is the perfect base for a trip to the Belgian coast, Sluis or Cadzand. The holiday house offers comfort and luxury in a haven of peace and quiet, in the middle of nature. You can enjoy peace and relaxation, cycling, hiking and enjoy the nature and the vast rural area of the creek area.
De Zonnebrug is located on the Beoostereedepolderdijk which dates back to the 16th century and was built as a protection of the country against the emerging tides of the North Sea. The dikes are characterized and demarcating poplar grove. A few miles away along the canal is the church of St. -in-Eremo.
Sluis, Oostburg, Aardenburg, Boekhoute and Waterlandkerkje are nearby and are more than worth a visit. You can also make the crossing with the ferry from Breskens to Vlissingen on the Westerschelde to visit Middelburg and the Veerse Meer.
The Zonnebrug is located near Zeeland, in a region of channels and creeks. The gastronomy is typical of the region (the Sentse eel) and the peace and quiet of the creeks and the nature reserve there around.
Our house is located in the middle of the creek area, unique in Belgium and The Netherlands. Sometimes the white boundaries are the only witnesses of the borders. The dikes have for centuries protected the people and the animals against the rising waters of the sea.
During World War II were in no time 1000 of acres back under water. The Leopoldskanaal (dug around 1850) was the front line between the neutral Netherlands and the German occupiers of Belgium. The many bunkers in the countryside and the military cemeteries in the region, of which the famous Canada Museum in Adegem, are the only left witnesses. The cyclist or walker will - especially at the level of the many bridges over the channel - the memorials for local fallen of the first and second world war.
Gastronomy and culture
Tucked away in the countryside you can dine well and of high quality. For the tasty local cuisine you can enjoy at local restaurants such as Freds cafe, De Roste Muis, Carpe Diem, In den Draaiput ... The portions are generous and of high quality; the products that are used are often local.
The well-known border city of Sluis is just a stones throw away from St-Jan -in-Eremo. This pleasant and attractive shopping city is for years and years already known for its Burgundian atmosphere. The rich past, in combination with the many shops, restaurants and cafes ensure a huge attraction. The shops and restaurants are open 7 days a week. Next to the starred restaurant La Trinite is a very diverse range of snack bars and good food restaurants.

Pure C, the cozy Resto Bar of top chef Sergio Herman is in Cadzand, on a 20 kilometer of De Zonnebrug. Cadzand-bath is the most southern beach resort of The Netherlands. The wide beach exerts an irresistible attraction to young and old.

Who we are
For a long time we dreamed of 'something' to start in the holiday business. Our career development has taken a different turn, and yet ...
The emergence of the internet offers a vast view of the world. Many hours are we have been trying to find a suitable location for a second stay with the possibility to receive tourists. We looked forward to a location in Southern France. During our holidays in la Douce France we invariably passed along immo-offices to a nice location to find. It never came to concrete plans. Still there was something that prevented us to decide.
Previously by accident, we discovered two years ago a dykefarm in St-Jan -in-Eremo situated in a beautiful location. We are both very intrigued by the nature, and above all the silence, the peace and quiet and the views in the polders and along the Leopoldskanaal, ...
The next stage in the story was making plans on how we would grow and set up. At least a hundred plans were entrusted to the paper. Until we found the perfect match with an architect. A few weeks later we had an appointment to listen to her ideas. The sketches were clear, yes it was what we wanted.
Meanwhile our dream came true. During the two following years we worked on the realization of our tourist accommodation. We are convinced that our domain, which is very nice and an idyllic location, is very suitable for shorter or longer stays.
Enjoy the silence !
