Perfect in every way
This house has everything you could possibly need for a lovely holiday . The kitchen is fully equipped . The living area is extremely comfortable . The owners are charming and extremely helpful . Many thanks for having us stay .
Great Accommodation. Highly Recommended
Beautiful accommodation that was spotlessly clean and fully equipped, especially an X-Box for the kids. Beautiful area. Very helpful owners with great local knowledge. It is in the countryside so you will need a car. For a stay in the countryside we would highly recommend it.
Perfect for a Quiet Retreat in Rural Belgium
The house was everything we hoped it would be - spacious, light and airy, with the possibility to fold back the four double glazed doors, extending the lounge into the patio - making it a wonderful space to eat in the evening and look back into the house with its multitude of mood lighting options.
The garden too was a delight - an oasis of calm and quiet where we could rest and enjoy the sound of birdsong and the rustle of a warm breeze passing through the trees.
In July, it's not the sakura (cherry tree) that is the great joy, but a relative of the linden (lime) tree that gives off a heavenly scent. In this rural setting, you feel like you are living in the middle of an arboretum.
The house itself is modern and streamlined, finished all in white for a simple look, and the wifi covers all areas. Other features include international satellite tv (mostly news channels), and an iPad driven sound system.
The main bedroom is compact but adequate, and our hosts Olivier and Laurence reconfigured the second bedroom as a single with a desk and chair. My wife used the room for yoga practice, and I did some personal writing.
Pretty much in the middle of the Wallon region, the house is a great base to explore Brussels and the surrounding countryside. During our stay, we watched a re-enactment marking the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. And another interesting excursion was an afternoon we spent at the Musee Herge, (in Louvain la Neuve) celebrating the adventures of Tintin.
We will miss the house and gardens when we return to England. This has been one of our most enjoyable summer stays.
Great place in a quiet environment
This appartment is very luxeruous, comfortable and therefore a great place if you want to stay in a quiet environment. The kids enjoyed the x-box!
it is centrally located if you want to visit Brussels, Leuven, Waterloo or Walibi. You need a car to go there.
Entspannt in Belgien!
Die Unterkunft war sehr schön und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Umgebung lud zu Entdeckungen ein und man begnete stets freundlichen Nachbarn. Beinahe täglich machten wir Spaziergänge oder kleine Wanderungen, genossen die Ruhe und süße Luft des Dorfs.
Die Lage der Unterkunft ist perfekt. Es ist ein optimaler Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge. Brüssel und Löwen ca 30min., Brügge etwas über 1Std. entfernt.
Wir waren 14 Tage vor Ort und haben Tagesunternehmungen und Entspannungszeiten ganz spontan entschieden und so einen idealen Urlaub erlebt, ohne auch nur einen Tag als zu langweilig oder zu unruhig empfunden zu haben.
Sehr nette Gastgeber, die mit wertvollen Tipps für Freizeitgestaltung, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten etc aushelfen können.
Wir kommen gerne wieder.
Thanks for your stay and hope to welcome you again one day.
You are a wonderfull guest.
