Raesborre Domain

Raesborre Domain

  • Sint Jansbergsesteenweg 415, 3001 Heverlee, Belgium

Raesborre Domain is a place where you immediately feel at home. The beautiful park garden that covers 1 hectare of land has a pond, a Mansion and a Cottage. There are also many cosy terraces and outdoor sitting areas. The mix of old architecture, nature and comfort makes this domain very attractive for all types of events and ideal for photo shoots.

 

Mansion is built at the beginning of the 20th century and has everything you could wish for in a private setting – beautiful interiors, library & billiard room, jacuzzi in the wellness space and a sumptuous multimedia room with projector and big screen. An enfilade of beautiful rooms on the ground floor is linked providing a larger space, but these rooms can also be used separately for meetings, trainings or business-related purposes.

 

Logging: there is sleeping accommodation at the upper floors of the Mansion and in the Cottage for 15 to 20 people in total. All bedrooms are beautifully decorated and offer a view to the park garden.

 

Park Garden: offers many opportunities for outdoor activities and installation of tents on the large open lawns for your dream outdoor events, such as wedding ceremonies or garden parties.

 

Catering: you are free to supply own drinks and choose a caterer, but we don’t allow full preparation of food on-site. The property has 2 kitchens: a family kitchen in the main Mansion that can be used for serving needs during a cocktail or dinner party; an open plan kitchen in the Cottage that can be used by the caterer to prep the food, store equipment, arrange/clean up dishes.

 

Additional services: upon your demand our trusted partners can provide full service event planning, decoration and supply of the additional equipment you may need. Rental price for the venue does not include any material (tents, extra furniture, dishes & glasses, sound equipment) because each event has very different requirements. Supply of anything you may need can be arranged with the partners we use regularly.

 

Dance Floor: is available in the garden pergola or should be purpose build in the party tent. No dancing is allowed inside the Mansion.

 

Parking: on-site parking for up to 12 cars and free parking with unlimited capacity within walking distance

Flexible offers for a day or long weekend rentals for the full domain or its parts are available as from 1500-2000 euro.

Perfect place for a corporate event

We organized a corporate event at Raesborre. It is a great venue: clean, gorgeous, elegant and very workable for a “business” kind of events.
I want to say special thanks to Ira for her help. I am beyond happy with her
guidance, suggestions, responsiveness and positive attitude. I definitely recommend this place!

A jewel by the lake!

I have visited this venue for a corporate event (seminar with after-work drinks) and it is by far the nicest place I have ever been for work! I am planning to organize my wedding here as well. It's huge, but looks very private and calm! Location looks absolutely lovely and is in close proximity from Leuven and Brussels. While I think it is at its best on sunny days, due to the tent in the garden we had fantastic time with my colleagues even when the rain started! The hosts are also very helpful and client-focused: they catered to all our needs! Note: the hosts speak Dutch but also English, so very easy to agree on the details. In summary, highly recommend the place!

Raesborre Domain

Raesborre Domain is a beautiful location for all parties and events. We have know this gorgeous place since 2000 when we did our first party there for our 40 th birthday. It was before the restoration of the house but it was already a big hit then. Since the renovations the house has become more beautiful and better fitted through the years to accomodate plenty of people for entertainment and accomodation. The proximity of the highway and the big parking are a big advantage for accessability and in the house you don't notice it and on the terrace and the gardens neither when people around during parties and events. Raesborre Domain is a real recommendation for events in our region. We are looking forward to future events and parties at this beautiful place.

Raesborre; a dream home

I lived here for 2 years and held several exhibitions. The house and the domain is a dream, perfectly located and organized. Everyone feels welcome here. Both my daughter and myself have warm and loving memories of the place.
Recommended!

5 stars!

We've attended many family gatherings and celebrations here over the years. It's such a unique place that's bursting with character, inside and outside. The house is stunning and spacious with many rooms to host friends and family. The gardens, deck, and pond are great for taking photos and lounging on a beautiful day. I highly recommend Domein Raesborre for your event or private get away!

Raesborre Domain

Domain Raesborre is a gorgeous little oasis just outside Leuven, perfect for small and large gatherings and special events. The beautiful English inspired garden with many little corners and spaces to discover and enjoy is a delight. The historic house is a balanced mix of old and new with all modern conveniences, tastefully restored and decorated. The hosts are great to work with, professional and flexible, It is conveniently located at the intersection of two major highways. I live in the USA and had the good fortune to attend several events in Raesborre while visiting friends and family in Belgium. I will cherish the happy memories forever.

Charming locations for family events

Celebrated a recent family event over a weekend and it was a complete delight. While ground floor interiors in main building are charming with a special entourage, upper floors and the cottage house are modern and comfortable. Plenty of spaces to hold different events: outside a nice terrace and a tent by the pond, a lovely English garden and old abbey ruins - very green and superbly photogenic. Inside, the living rooms holds classy atmosphere, movie-room is a delight, the billiard room was a surprise and the little sunny cocktail rooms are a great back-up in case of rains. Loved it!

Great location, amazing hosts

Highly recommend: its a mansion with amazing garden and stunning interior managed by great hosts-a combination difficult to find!
We have spent 2 days there and enjoyed both the garden with several stunning spots including a fountain and an outdoor tent with great view as well as charming interiors with all the facilities for a very comfortable stay and exquisite designs and paintings collection.
The hosts are very welcoming and professional I. Event planning. So many details were thought through to make out stay comfortable and memorable.
Highly recommend it.

A great venue for any event!

This venue is fantastic! We have shared some truly memorable family gatherings at this place. The large, green outdoor space is a wonderful area to entertain guests. The indoor facilities such as large bathrooms, spacious kitchen and living area as well as homely bedrooms makes this place a delight for overnight stays. The owners guarantee a seamless and relaxed experience throughout! I would definitely recommend the domain for any event!

The best venue for any occasion!

We have had some family reunions and celebrations organized in the domain over a couple of years and it has always been a pleasure to return! Saying more, we kept looking forward to the following occasion with excitement and it was always a grand success with the best feelings and emotions.
The domain itself is made to impress and won't leave anyone indifferent. It is beautiful inside and out, decorated with taste and charm, well maintained, spacious yet cozy. The owners are a pleasure to make business with, so organized, pleasant, easy to communicate with and always eager to help. We have also had a chance to spend a couple of nights there and I can't tell enough how much we liked the facility from this perspective too. Huge, comfortable beds, spacious bathrooms, large windows with beautiful view that is combined together with the hot tub, billiard, cinema and simply cozy family chats by the fireplace - all in all creates best, warmest memories forever. Hope many more to come as we will be visiting Belgium from far now.

Place of my dream

I was pleased to be invited to the family celebration in Domein Raesboree. From the very beginning, I was impressed by the calm atmosphere of an ancient house and beautiful garden. For me, time became slowly there. It was a moment to enjoy all beauties around and time to relax. I feel like I found myself in a place from my childhood dreams. If you want to find a special place for an important celebration with a family atmosphere, I recommend visiting Domain Raesboree

Wedding JB&RC at Raesborre domain ! Excellent !!

We had some unforgettable time at Raesborre Domain. It was the ideal place to gather our families for our wedding.
we could feel us like at home. Exquisite decoration and set up. Warm style, very practical, spacious, and just beautiful.
All the family members coming from far away could sleep on site, in excellent conditions of comfort. Everybody were so happy.
Svetlana deserves a five-stars award: she is an excellent host, she put a lot of efforts making sure everything is set up according to our wishes and needs.
She has attention to details and stays at the same time quite uncomplicated. Very easy and efficient communication for the preparation.
To sum up, we can just warmly recommend that fantastic place. Thank you so much!!!

Wedding party Raesborre domain

On December 14, 2019 we held our wedding party in the Raesborre domain. The preparation went very smoothly with Svetlana. She is a good hostess, very helpful and flexible. We were invited several times to discuss practical matters and if we had any questions we could always reach her. A total of 100 guests were invited and there was plenty of room for this in this beautiful house! We have not been able to use the beautiful garden, but in the summer it must be beautiful with all the flowers! The nice thing about this house is that there are several rooms; large room for the people who wanted to stand up, another nicely decorated room with cozy seats, then you have the billiard table for the young guests, kids room, etc. Our guests were also very enthusiastic about the domain! More original than a wedding in a banquet hall, right? ;-) Our wedding party was a success! Even after the party we got some extra time to tidy everything up quietly. I recommend this location to everyone! Svetlana and her husband Wim are great !!
Thanks again for everything !! Stefanie & Ignacio

Business dinners in February 2019

In February 2019, we provided 3 business dinners in the Raesborre Domain.
Our client was impressed by this historic top location, where the humanist Erasmus still resided.
Surrounded by a beautiful garden with various water sources, the villa has three lounges
where a walking-seating dinner, reception, communion, wedding party ... can be organized.
Thanks to the friendly help of the owners 'everything is possible', every event was a success.
With great pleasure we return to this location in Heverlee.
Best regards

Birthday party

Wonderful birthday
Being a guest with our group at Raesborre Domein was always a pleasure or a bit like coming home. Fantastic location, beautiful surroundings, beautiful view, good food, beautiful rooms, ... Thanks for the good care. Beautifully decorated, equipped with all modern infrastructure. Ideally located in terms of parking and not far from the center of Leuven. Was the first time but not the last. Highly recommended for receptions, garden parties or corporate events in a medium-sized group.

Gorgeous villa in the heart of Belgium

We’ve had a few events happening at Raesborre Domain and every time the guests were impressed by the beauty of the location. It is a beautiful house with an amazing garden, the pond and the terrace. It has its very own character and charm. Only the best memories are associated with this house and I hope we will celebrate many more occasions there

Breathtaking domain and immaculate organization for Baby Shower

I held the baby shower for my daughter in the Raesborre domain in May 2017. The party for 80 people was held in the garden (we were very lucky with the weather) and the owners provided very nice decoration: flowers, plants, beautiful garden furniture . We organized catering ourselves, had a bouncy castle installed and hung extra decoration (beautiful pompoms and balloons). The party was a great success and the last guests stayed until the evening to enjoy the warm spring evening. The owners of the domain were very helpful and flexible - everything went smoothly!
