The 4 individually decorated suites each with private bathroom and shower will make your stay comfortable and relaxing. For those bright sunny days the garden and terrace beckons. When you arrive you will soon feel as if you’re staying with friends.

Though you may prefer not to mingle, our lounge and dining room are an extension of your room with comfy sofa’s, reading material, soft music and a crackling fire in winter.

Only the best, freshest ingredients are used to prepare your breakfast, which you are welcome to enjoy in the dining room decorated with traditional Portuguese wine barrel furniture or outside in the terrace. Your hostess and Chef Fatima will prepare delicious traditional Portuguese, Spanish and other dishes upon request. The only problem with our Bed & Breakfast is having to leave!

the antique market in Tongeren

We have been asked many times why the name “AntiQua & Qook”? Well, simple. The farm is over 100 years old and it is situated in Tongeren, the oldest city of Belgium 4km away from the famous Antique market in the Tongeren centre. As we will be hosting cooking workshops we decided to add in the Qook part with a Q and not a C because we “are” different. In the future we will also have a wellness area so hence “AQua” in AntiQua.

About the owners

AntiQua & Qook Bed and Breakfast is the realization of a dream come true for the owners Fatima and Paula, who during their travels fell in in love with an old farm in Tongeren and lovingly restored the property into a Bed & Breakfast.

Paula has pursued her career in the corporate world while Fatima pursued her ultimate dream of becoming a chef.
