Casa Luna takes its name from the crescent moon depicated in relief on the very top of the front facade.
The historic 17th-century canal house was built in 1616, and was owned by one family until 1757 when it was sold and occupied by the bookseller and map-maker Visser.
The oldest house on its block on the Leliegracht, Casa Luna was renovated in the Louis XV rococo style and functioned as a bakery and confectionery shop for 75 years during the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Current owner Maud Verbruggen continues the tradition of Casa Luna as a place where people live and work by producing her own work on-premises while offering other gifted artists the opportunity to showcase and sell their work. She also maintains guest rooms that have been carefully restored and furnished with designer furniture.
