WELCOME AT HOF VAN LIER

Welcome in Zandbergen, where on broad wings the buzzard skims the tree tops
and green meadows gently cradle the meandering waters.

Under the wings of water castle de Lalaing in rural Santberghe, M.J. de Lalaing,
Governor of Lier and Lord of Santberghe, built his Hof van Lier in 1752.
Hof van Lier has not withstood the centuries without a few scars, but is now ready for a new era.

We have transformed it into a haven. For you, dreamer, explorer, bon vivant.
Come and experience the Flemish Ardennes from within.
