De Brabantse Kluis is a restaurant, hotel, farm and regional shop in one, with the option to rent rooms as well. Most strikingly, this authentic restaurant is located in a monastery farm. From the terrace you can look out over the animals and, who knows? Maybe a calf will come by to say hello. You can also take a look inside the stables. Alternatively, take a walk through the Zustertuin garden of the adjacent, and still operational, Mission Convent of the Precious Blood. Light a candle in the Mariagrot cave before settling down for a hearty lunch or delicious dinner. The generous Brabant portions, warm hospitality and honest prices attract countless walkers, cyclists and dog lovers. As one guest put it: ‘Warm “Brabant” service, despite the restaurant being crowded. We all had an enjoyable time.’

The green outdoors
De Brabantse Kluis offers a wide range of activities on the edge of Aarle-Rixtel. Located on the periphery of a beautiful cultural landscape, you can see dairy cattle grazing in the meadows. Want to explore? Immediately in front of the inn is a node on the cycling and hiking network, although the inn itself has also plotted out some fabulous routes as well. The ‘Pak de Biezen’ route leads through the eponymous nature reserve, traversing forest paths, bridges over marshland and taking in cultural and historical beauty. The Piglet Trail, with its light education element, is ideal for children aged 3 to 10 years old. 
Aarle-Rixtel is located in a beautiful region for cycling, in which the inn itself has plotted out six routes (ranging from 20 to almost 60 kilometres). Plus, as a member of ‘Cyclists Welcome!’, the inn also has four of its own charging points.
