Coworking in the Dutch countryside to get things done

Rural coworking in the Netherlands

Villaforum brings together a small group independent entrepreneurs in a spacious villa in the serene countryside of central Limburg. This coworking villa is only a two hours drive from Amsterdam. In a creative environment for 5 days and 4 nights you get to work on your own project, away from the distractions of home and office, in order to get new insights and inspiration. During this coworking break you get the chance to receive valuable feedback from other likeminded, share ideas and present your new project. To heighten the senses complementary meditation and yoga lessons are available upon request.

VillaForum offered me a place to reflect, write and relax. The villa is in a rural environment where I still get work done.

Ik wist niet dat ik in z’n korte tijd zoveel werk kon verzetten, en toch het gevoel zou hebben dat ik op vakantie ben geweest!

What I appreciated the most about VillaForum was Sjoerd himself, how much care he took of the participants. Also the feedback session gave me new insights.

Inspiring coworking space

The villa is fitted with all modern comforts, fast wifi, relaxing workspace, fireplace, six bathrooms, spacious kitchen and private sittings. Delicious meals are cooked everyday. If you like to eat vegetarian food, that’s not a problem at all, we take this into account. It’s just like a short holiday but now you are here to work. We think balance is important, that’s why we organise complementary meditation and yoga.

You can work in the rustic kitchen where most of the others work. However, if you need some privacy or want to work one-on-one with someone else, there are plenty of places in and around the house where it is possible to retreat. To clear your mind you can challenge each other for a game of table tennis or have a run in the fields. Are you stuck or need some new input? Pitch your ideas and receive feedback from the others. There are a lot of options, but most importantly: you can do what feels best.

Multiple coworking spaces

VillaForum takes place in the small village of Merum. Just a 500 meters walk from the house you find the rural area ‘Isabellegreend’. This is a peninsula in the ‘Maasplassen’, and is a great place for walking and running. The house itself has a huge kitchen where you can work at a big table. We also have some quiet spaces to sit by yourself or with someone else. The living room still has the characteristics of the old horse stable it once was: the stable doors are now a window. Here you can relax at the fireplace. You can join the 11th till the 15th of July.
