2015 - Bike trip Maldegem Kleit you can see the nice old farm.

From the 16th to the middle of the 18th century the domain was transformed into a leasehold, but with little success given the mediocre quality of the cultivated land. In 1756 the farm, as it existed until recently, was erected and the extraction of wood and peat was started successfully. The French Revolution marked the end of this activity.
In the 20th century the farm - as a farm - was operated by the Bottelier-Dhaenens family and when the only two remaining sons died in a traffic accident on the N44 in 1999, this was the end of the exploitation.
The restored central building was erected in 1756 approximately at the place where the former chapel with its turret stood. It was already out of use at the time and served as a shed and later as a home. In 2007 it got its current view.

I hope that you enjoy it
