  • Excellent home with accessible, central location

    "I have been renting through VRBO for five years, averaging six stays per year. Of all my experiences, this home in reality was the closest to its description. It's exactly as it appears in the pictures and has a lot of high end touches you rarely see in Ireland. It has radiant, in-floor heating and most of the rooms have individual controls. The main setting which controls the kitchen, dining & living room is housed in a locked box on the outside of the home - so this needs to be changed by the caretaker, Mary. All of the other rooms have their own controls, so you choose your comfort. The kitchen appliances are all high end and have the manuals in a binder to assist you. I would like to note the home is accessible - it has a ramp at the entrance, two bedrooms, two baths (with roll-in showers), the kitchen & dining room all on the same floor. The rooms are gigantic and the hallways & doorways are wide. The living room (TV & fireplace), sun room and the master suite are located up three stone stairs, however. The house is also suited for families with young children - it has several board games, a toy house, blocks, etc. The stove has child lock measures for safety too. The house is also suited for groups or families with teens as the master bedroom is on the complete opposite side of the house as the two other bedrooms. And every bedroom has it's own en suite bath, so privacy is amazing. The only FYI's that should be noted are: 1) You are in Ireland on a wooded lot, so expect to see a few spiders/bugs (especially in the fall or winter as Ireland is notorious for its spiders during these seasons). 2) The microwave's timer does not work - you set it for a specific time, but it doesn't count down, it just keeps running. So don't set it and then walk away expecting the *ding.* 3) The shower temperatures are a little touchy. If you find the water isn't hot enough, I recommend shutting it off, turning the temperature knob to a hotter setting & then turn it back on. For some reason it wouldn't get hotter once it was on. 4) It is a self-catering house, and when I was there it didn't have some things you would think may be there - like black pepper & sugar. Just be prepared to look around the kitchen before you head to the store. 5) The fireplace doesn't emit a lot of heat, I think the chimney is a little too large and the heat escapes up it. So don't invest in a lot of firewood or peat logs unless you just want the ambiance. Overall: Amazing"

  • A truly magical place

    "We have recently returned from a fabulous vacation at La Buro and can't wait to return. It was definitely one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had. The home is very well maintained and beautifully appointed. Everything you need to enjoy the Tuscan way of life is offered here and the owner, Elizabeth, went out of her way to ensure we would experience a wonderful vacation. The home has a pleasing, calm atmosphere and is positioned perfectly to explore the surrounding area. Our family of seven truly enjoyed the property and we spent many hours exploring the grounds, going on walks, and swimming in the pool. It was the ideal spot for us to stay in terms of being right in the middle of all the medieval towns we were looking forward to exploring. But the house and property itself held so many wonders that it was often difficult for us to pry ourselves away. The children especially never wanted to leave La Buro and we enjoyed many days just hanging around the property and enjoying the outdoors. We cooked many dinners in the well designed, well appointed kitchen and loved eating them in the outdoors dining area with gorgeous views in the evening. It is such a special place and we all adored it. Elizabeth arranged a fantastic Tuscan cooking class for us at a local farm as well as a dinner in the monastery near by. We also enjoyed a farm tour and cheese making experience (goat and sheep) with lunch overlooking the Val d'Orcia and took a short trip to La Foce which I highly recommend. I feel very fortunate to have spent time at this wonderful villa, it is a vacation we will all remember for a long time to come. Sarah (Ottawa, Canada)"

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.
