Select an exceptional venue for the most beautiful occasions

Renting a luxury property lends itself to all occasions, whether it is a private reception or a professional event. The choice of an exceptional setting is a definite asset to make a lasting impression. The objective is to offer guests a unique experience for a day, a weekend or more.

Celebrate a party, a wedding or share an intimate evening with your loved ones in a privileged place in the heart of nature… Bring together your employees or your work team for team building, a business meeting, a press conference or a seminar in a prestigious property… Some large-scale events require extraordinary spaces fitted out with a sense of design.

The environment must be commensurate with the reception:

  • an atypical property (barge, rooftop) to create a surprise;
  • a heritage with exceptional architectural qualities (castle, manor house) in order to arouse wonder;
  • a luxurious property to impress your guests;
  • a place of power, of legend or iconic during a singular event.

Adapted to the requirements of luxury and prestige events, these spaces offer a unique and unusual dimension. They stand out for their cachet, their architectural and sometimes historical wealth. And that’s not all, since the actors of these sumptuous venues coordinate several complementary high-end services: catering, accommodation, equipment rental…

Prestigious Belgian domains for green events

Looking for an exceptional and peaceful place in Belgium? Here is a selection of natural settings to organise a professional event or a private party.

The Green Cottage estate welcomes guests in the countryside in a rustic and warm atmosphere in the Flemish Region.

The same goes for the Chalet Robinson, an atypical property created from ecological materials and located on a small green island in the middle of the Bois de la Cambre in Brussels.

In the Walloon Region, other sumptuous properties offer an event space in the middle of nature. This is the case of the Cense d’Abaumont and the Ruisbroek castle. The Cense d’Abaumont has three rooms, each more exceptional than the last:

  • the orangery, a festive reception room with a large stone fireplace;
  • the hayloft, an attic with an undeniable cachet with its old beams;
  • the garden, a privileged space on the edge of a pond.

Ruisbroek Castle, located at the gates of Brussels, with its baroque architecture, welcomes all types of events in its orangery, its smoking room or its Italian-style landscaped garden.

For a more intimate reception, the OneHouseStand rental service offers several mansions such as the beautiful and luxurious mansion with a classic design. Some properties are offered in partnership with the leading real estate agency Engel & Völkers.
