About Jos and Ingrid
The owners Jos and Ingrid returned from Congo in 1990. Shortly afterwards, they started restoring the parental home and furnishing the guest rooms.
Jos studied Germanic language and literature and can vividly recount the rich history of the region and the County of Loon.
Ingrid studied agriculture and wrote her thesis on organic farming. She is fascinated by nature and is environmentally aware. At the Loonderhof, she therefore opts entirely for organic food. It is not only better for your health, but also for the planet. In addition, the farmers receive a fairer remuneration. In the kitchen garden, she grows organic vegetables, fruit and herbs, etc. Which she turns into meals, jams and herbal infusions.. To deepen her knowledge of herbs even further, she recently graduated as a herbalist.
About Het Loonderhof
Borgloon in turn means “castle on a forested hill” and was 1000 years ago the main town of the Earldom of Loon. Meanwhile, the castle of the Counts of Loon has been demolished, but from the hill at 118 metres above sea level, you have a phenomenal view over the Haspengouw.
The Loonderhof in Borgloon is therefore a beautiful piece of history and has been restored with respect for tradition and authentic elements. So you can enjoy a pleasant atmosphere and nostalgic charm.
We strive to run our B&B in a sustainable way. We serve seasonal products from our own region, organic and fair trade, if possible. Or from small-scale producers who respect the environment.
We resolutely aim for less food and household waste. That is why we don’t serve individual portions, but you serve yourself. In the fridge, you will only find glass bottles.
Solar panels provide green electricity and a solar water heater provides hot water. Washing is done with rainwater and environmentally friendly washing products. You sleep in pure cotton.
You can even leave your car at the homestead and take the bus to Tongeren or Sint-Truiden.
