the Rectory

In the rural village of Merkem, located between Ypres and Diksmuide, we welcome you in our home, a former rectory.

Rebuilt after the Great War and located next to the castle and the church, this rectory was many years the home of the local priest. It had a central role in the religious village life.

In 2006, after 84 years, the old rectory was renovated with much love and patience. It became the new home of Els and Wim.

If you want to get away from everyday life, if you’re looking for some peace and quiet or even if you want to be more active, you’re always welcome in Pastorie van Merkem.
