In a quiet street, just outside of Middelburgs abbey, in the heart of the city centre and within eight kilometers of the coast, lies The Latin School.
This large monument from 1365, build on the highest point of Walcheren, is being used as a residence since 2015. The owners are a book restorer and an artist. They live and work in the building and cherish the authentic character of its historic spaces.
‘Festina lente’ the Latin saying; make haste slowly!

The space
From the spacious central hall, the chaired entrance to the building, the large kitchen can be found (25 m2). It is fully equipped and has a four pitted stove and oven, a microwave, fridge, watercooker, coffeemaker and toaster. Dishes need to be done the old-fashioned way; by hand. The large table and the windowsill seats can accommodate a group of people comfortably.

The ground floor is also where the bathroom with shower (7 m²), which is entered through the kitchen downstairs, and a toilet can be found. In the bathroom there is a sink, a washer and dryer and ironing board with iron.

Stairs to the first floor will take you to the 'binnenkamer' (inside room) 30 m2; a sleep- and living room. Equipped with a double bed, a single bed which functions as a sitting area also, a table and chairs and a sink. There is a cot, babybed and a high chair available if you wish for the little ones.

In the summers the monumental home with its thick walls is lovely and cool. There is central heating in all living spaces for colder times. On the peaceful sidewalk there is a. table and chairs to enjoy a morning coffee in the sunshine. Next to this, the entrance to a bike stalling or space for storing surfboards and such.

Note on the shared spaces;
There is a lady working upstairs in an office and a few yogaclasses a week are helt downstairs(you are welcome to join!), so during the week these people may use the WC downstairs and occasionally also the kitchen to make a cup of tea or coffee.

Hallo, ik ben Marijn de Valk en samen met mijn vriend Jan Goedemé kocht ik dit pand in 2014. Ik heb twee zonen, waarvan onze jongste nog thuis woont. Sinds 1990 werk ik als zelfstandig boekrestaurator en inmiddels doe ik dit werk samen met Jan. We werken voor bibliotheken, musea en archieven in Nederland en Vlaanderen aan manuscripten, boeken, kaarten en prenten. Zo restaureerde ik onlangs een boek dat van Jacob Roggeveen is geweest, de ontdekker van het Paaseiland. Dezelfde Roggeveen die hier rond 1670 om de hoek woonde en in de ruimte op de eerste verdieping waar ik nu werk Latijnse les kreeg, maar ook schoonschrijven, uit hetzelfde boek dat ik onderhanden had! Daarnaast verbouwt Jan het huis op een zeer contentieuze manier. Ik ben trots op hem en op het resultaat. We genieten elke dag van de mooie, oude ruimtes, de fijne buurt en de natuur, de zee en het strand op Walcheren. We hopen van harte dat onze gasten dit ook zullen waarderen!
