  • Comfortable!

    "In the heat of July, it is fantastic to return to our apartment after an entire day of walking and sight-seeing, turn on the air conditioning, and relax! While the shower is tiny, it is so fantastic! We have met many other Americans during our treks about Florence and those who are staying in hotels seem so sad after we tell them of our situation! The little super market around the corner is good for basics (paper towels, milk, etc), while the Mercato Centrale, just a few blocks away, provides essential healthy foods (lean salami, melon, strawberries, olives, cheese) if you get there early in the morning (it all closes down by 13:30 each day). The mattress is WONDERFULLY comfortable and the kitchen just right for 2! We appreciate that Nelia took time to share with us about local highlights for food and personal needs. We felt safe! The only drawback for one with a strong sense of smell are the occasional whiffs of sewage upon entering corridor from the street to the apartment, but not too bad! There are worse, stronger smells while shopping in other areas of the city! Our only wish is for washcloths...so don't forget to bring along a personal cloth. There are 2 towels and 2 hand towels for guests. While being in the city is exciting for most, we found the peacefulness of a smaller village more comfortable, making day treks into the city. We are so happy, however, that we were lucky enough to get this apartment for the excellent cost! Nelia was so kind and thorough. Getting to watch a bit of the BBC on TV caught us up on some world news, but we were most content to ignore the television. Bring earplugs for sleeping at night, as there are loud noises outside the windows in the street below, but that may also be part of the joy of being in the city! Thank you so much to Nelia!"

Belgium Travel Tips

Traveling to Belgium Vacation Rentals

Belgium is located in the heart of Central Europe. Tucked away between France, the Netherlands and Germany, it has a relatively short coastline that runs along the English Channel. Ferries provide access from the United Kingdom port of Dover to Ostend in Belgium. This is one of the more traditional and still very popular ways of traveling to Belgium from Britain. For those flying into Belgium, the main airport can be found just outside of the capital city of Brussels. Because of its central location, the airport hosts a vast number of commercial flights on a daily basis. Almost all major European and North American airlines have flights that land in Brussels. If you are planning on touring some of the countryside, it is possible to hire a car. You should, however, be confident in your ability to navigate busy city streets and highways. A very popular way to travel to and around Belgium is by train. While it has become more expensive in recent decades, it is still the most convenient way to get around. There are regular rail links to almost every town, city and village in the country. There are also regular high-speed intercity trains that link Brussels with other major European cities such as Paris, Amsterdam, Cologne and Dusseldorf.

Belgium Travel Attractions

Belgium is a country that is centuries old. It has seen many wars, cultural and artistic influences over the years. While it has its own national identity, Belgium is a melting pot of cultures. There is a strong, French influence in the south, and different Flemish dialects are spoken in various parts of the country. Belgium is known for its beautiful architecture and rich cultural heritage. During your visit, you can immerse yourself in visiting museums, art galleries and theater performances. The many museums don’t focus on history alone. There are museums dedicated to children’s interests, art and music, toys, trains and transport, as well as cultural traditions. If you travel into the countryside, you can stop in at quaint villages that still keep to a more traditional way of life. Enjoy a home-cooked meal at a street café while you sip on your coffee and enjoy reading the local newspaper. Many of the homes have picturesque gardens and some towns have canal systems that were once used to foster trading partnerships with neighboring areas. There are many beautiful old churches and cathedrals in a variety of architectural styles. Belgium is a delightful destination for those that enjoy traveling in Europe.

Find a Stylish Accommodation in Belgium

Many of the apartments in Belgium are modern and functional. The city apartments tend to be quite compact but they offer an affordable alternative to hotel accommodations. Rental homes in smaller towns and cities are often old stone homes that have been lovingly restored and refurbished. The homes and apartments tend to cater to smaller families and are ideal for couples or a handful of friends traveling together. Many are conveniently located near bus or train stations so you can easily get around and do some sightseeing. Kitchens generally have a host of modern appliances so preparing meals is quick and easy.

Seasons to Travel to Bruges Vacation Rentals in Belgium

The summer season is the most popular time to travel to Belgium. The season starts from May and runs through to the end of September. June and July are generally the warmest months with the longest days and therefore attract the most number of tourists. If you want to enjoy the cultural sites like the traditional town of Bruges, it is best done in the summer months where you can explore the many attractions on foot.
