While passing through, we ended up at Sala's place on a rainy evening. Yuba, his playful dog, who curiously comes to meet you, but then leaves you alone. Unless you want to play. Looking up you see an ingenious climbing course, built by the host himself.
With our small tent we found a somewhat higher and dry place to sleep in the forest. It was free to use Sala's kitchen and sanitary facilities.
The chickens happily roamed the grounds between special sculptures (made by Sala).

How was the contact with the host?
If you want to meet someone who is unique and wise, Sala is the right place for you. He gives you a warm welcome, is generous in sharing his space where needed and very friendly to deal with. And stories? He can write a wonderful book about it.

Tips for new guests?
make sure you can stay a little longer!

Nice place where freedom and happiness are central. Nice place for people without a fear of heights, because host Sala sometimes dares to let you go off the ground.

How was the contact with the host?
Very sympathetic and approachable guy with heart in the right place. Makes time for his guests and their children.

Very welcoming and friendly people! Nice garden en space to chill. It was a bit rainy so we didnt spend a lot of time outside, but I think if the weather was a bit better its really a little paradise! Would happily come back again.

How was the contact with the host?
Perfect!

Thinking back brings a smile to my face. On the one hand it was nothing, sanitary as in a normal house clean, on the other the space, the atmosphere and the freedom of the animals. Children in particular can enjoy themselves 100% with climbing and clambering equipment, bathe their feet in the pond and cuddle with the chickens.

How was the contact with the host?
Very warm, but also with his friends who lend a hand. They give you the feeling of being welcome and it doesn't matter if you are young or old (in our case).

Tips for new guests?
If you are looking for something with luxury and bells and whistles, then this is nothing, but if you want to enjoy a very green environment and you do not have high expectations, this is very special.

Nice experience!
We shared the campfire with lovely open people.
Would definitely recommend for climbers. Ideal base for the many sights in and around Genk.

How was the contact with the host?
Perfect host, cares about his audience. We will definitely come back! Smooth and clear communication.

Tips for new guests?
Be sure of the dogs, all very good and listen well to Sala. But not for the faint of heart.

Fantastic place! We camped in the woods, sat around the campfire every evening and climbed the climbing course several times. Sala is a generous and kind host. I felt very much at home with Sala. We'll be back for sure!

How was the contact with the host?
Super! Sala is friendly and happy to give tips on things to do in the area. We very much enjoyed the conversations with Sala during the day and in the evenings around the campfire.

Tips for new guests?
Come camp and climb here and get to know Sala!

You shouldn't be here for the great luxury, but we weren't looking for that either. There is a nice casual, free and restful atmosphere where both animals and humans can relax.
Children can be a child here and romp in the woods.

How was the contact with the host?
The host is always friendly and always ready so that everyone can enjoy their holiday.

Tips for new guests?
Luxury is living in freedom.

For us it was just a switch on arrival. Share sanitary facilities with the owner, among other things. But it soon became a super cool experience. Especially the climbing course, with good guidance was great. A cozy campfire every evening. Scattered cuddly chickens, sweet dogs and cats. And at that time we had a very nice large group of other guests.

How was the contact with the host?
Sala is very welcoming and sociable. Takes the time for you to tell things or have a nice conversation.

Tips for new guests?
Nice that our dog could come with us. You can walk straight into the woods from the site.

Step into the world of Sala and let yourself be carried away. It's crazy!

On arrival we are warmly welcomed with the questions: “what is your goal? What's your plan? What do you want to come here to do?” I let his questions come in for a moment, because my head is still processing all the first impressions of the terrain. We soon find our way and enjoy the children clambering through the climbing forest. The friendly passers-by from the neighborhood who give free rein to their creativity in the studio. Or just come for a drink and a chat.

There is a lot to do and experience for young and old at Sala's Place. There is a super cool climbing forest. You can walk with Sala through the swamp and the forest. And camp freely in the woods with your tent. For vans there are 2 to 3 spots on the site on the edge of the forest. There is also an abandoned slaughterhouse nearby for the real urban explorer.
In addition, there are many and very social animals on the site, such as dogs, a cat, a lot of chickens and roosters, especially the cuddly chicken Herman. Success guaranteed for a great micro adventure!

In the evening you can sit down by the campfire and enjoy the beautiful stories Sala has to tell. And believe me, there are more than enough.

Sala, many thanks for the great time. We will definitely come back!

How was the contact with the host?
Super. Sala is a very cool, adventurous host, for young and old.

Tips for new guests?
Turn off your head and let yourself be carried away in the beautiful world of Sala.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in Genk. Partly thanks to the warm welcome of Sala and Inge. It is pleasant to stay, high in the trees, but also cozy in the evening by the campfire. Our dog was close friends with the dogs of the house and our son was close friends with chicken Herman. Worth repeating!!
