About this spot
Villa Servais is a magical place in Halle where history, culture and inspiring encounters come together.

The imposing villa was built in 1847 for cellist and composer François Servais. Jean-Pierre Cluysenaar designed this architectural gem in the Neo-Palladian style. After the death of the well-known musician, the villa in Halle was given various uses. From 1981 the villa stood empty and six years later the building was saved from the demolition hammer when it was classified as a 'protected heritage'.
In 2016, a new page was added to the villa's rich history when the De Poorter-Leschevin family purchased the building as a private project. After a complete restoration with the emphasis on authenticity and experience, Villa Servais will once again become the ideal meeting place. The location includes a private home, a guesthouse with eight luxurious rooms, a cozy tearoom and an authentic exhibition and culture space.
