In the middle of the countryside, in one of the oldest hamlets of the municipality of Oirschot, you'll find the nostalgic Buitengoed De Bollen. Taste the atmosphere of the countryside and enjoy the peace that nature has to offer us in this beautiful place with a wide view. In July 2019 the founders - Gemma van Kronenburg and Leo Rooijackers - handed over the baton to Mart Habraken and Linda Rommens and their children Vieve and Huub.
Buitengoed De Bollen is situated opposite the Sint Antoniuskapel in the beautiful centuries-old hamlet of Straten in the outskirts of the municipality of Oirschot. The core of Straten consists of a century-old small square on which the present St. Antonius chapel was built in 1853. It has the typical form of an agricultural village of old times, namely the farms formed around a triangular square covered with grass (which was called 'plaatse'). Behind the farms, the lower-lying land was used for arable farming. The shape of this field village, as well as the buildings, has remained fairly intact and is therefore of great historical value. That is why the core of the hamlet Straten has been designated a protected village sight by the government in 1992.
