Het Lijsternest was the home of Flemish writer Stijn Streuvels, pseudonym of Frank Lateur. It was built in cottage style in 1905. Streuvels lived there until his death in 1969, and it was also where he wrote some of his masterpieces such as De Vlaschaard (The Flaxfield) and De Teleurgang van de Waterhoek (The Decline of Waterhoek). The province of West Flanders purchased the property in 1977 after the death of Streuvels’s wife and turned it into a museum.
An interactive digital application helps you discover how Streuvels lived and worked and lets you get acquainted with his body of work.
Het Lijsternest now serves a double purpose: from April to September it is open to the public, while from October to March it serves as a writers’ residence.
