About Gillishof

Gillishof Holiday | Slow life


For Jacqueline and Bertus, Gillishof is mainly about hospitality and slow life. Whether you’re staying at Gillishof on vacation or for work, slow life means more attention and less rush. Gillishof stands for less need and more instead of just doing and continuing. Gillishof is a safe home base where you will meet yourself again instead of passing by. The beautiful nature, our lands, the history and of course the incessant hospitality, ensure that you can clear your head and get room for new, different things. Everything exudes authenticity and there is a typical let-it-blow atmosphere, even when the cows moo or children play in the orchard. It is therefore no coincidence that guests also like to use Gillishof for retreat. We write books, come up with groundbreaking ideas, make life decisions or let go of everything. Gillishof Holiday | Slow life: experience it for yourself!

History is tangible and lives on

Gillishof has been owned by the same family for over 400 years. Over the centuries, the family has opened its doors to all sorts of travelers and passers-by and … still! You will be warmly welcomed and there is always time for a chat, a joke, a moment to vent or just to get some tips about the area. The history of our medieval farm is tangible. You can see it in the view, the location of the farm, the courtyard and in the details of some suites or holiday homes.

Gillishof’s cows

Jan Senden was one of the first farmers in the Netherlands to bring his first Limousin cattle from France to the Netherlands at the beginning of the 1970s. A pioneer, as it turned out. He was already convinced at the time that paying attention to animals would yield better meat than factory farming. For years, the primeval cows grazed on the meadows of Gillishof. A new generation has taken up this again. Under the name haKOEna, Limousin and Blonde d’Aquitaine cattle are once again grazing on our land. And here too slow life is what you are getting. The animals enjoy their stress-free existence and you can taste it! HaKOEna’s products are incredibly tender, have an unprecedented superior taste and are therefore extremely popular. You buy the products directly from the farmer, packaged in well-arranged portions and packages with a description of what is in them and how to prepare the meat optimally.
