History of Hotel-Garni ‘Villa Arrisja’ For hundreds of years the family ‘Geltink’ have lived in the Meijerinkstraat in Eefde. Once they owned several houses in this street, which had to be sold for the division of property. At this moment only the location Meijerinkstraat 1 is in ownership of ‘a Geltink’, Arrisja. The first house on the location of Villa Arrisja was made of wooden poles, then a stone building was built. Here Gerrit Meijer, the husband of Jaantje Geltink, had a construction company, a grocery store and a pub. ‘Aunt Jaantje’ ran the grocery store and the pub. After the death of ‘Aunt Jaantje’ and later uncle Gerrit, Jan and Rie Geltink ran the pub. In order not to break with tradition and keep the location Meijerinkstraat 1 in ownership of 'a Geltink', Anneke (Arrisja) Geltink and Jan Breedveld decided to have a brand new building built; Hotel-Garni ‘Villa Arrisja’. The nostalgia has certainly not disappeared in the new building. In our office / reception area the family history is still clearly visible. Throughout the years there has been a lot of activity at the Meijerinkstraat 1 in Eefde by a Geltink (and spouses).
