About us


We are Kathleen and Stefaan, the inspirers of ZaligAanZee and ZaligInAntwerpen. Together with our 3 lovely daughters we live in the North of Antwerp, Belgium.

After 20 years of working at different companies in various sectors, we opted for a new adventure. Zalig!

We found the word “Zalig”, meaning blissful, the best word to describe that overwhelming holiday feeling. Because that is exactly what we want to offer each and one of our guests at ZaligAanZee en ZaligInAntwerpen.
