Excellent property in very quiet location with very friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully presented large cottage on a quiet country road. Great for a couple but can take a large family or friends. It is centrally located in Belgium with easy drives to numerous sites of interest. The sat-Nav was essential but made it easy to find and navigate the small roads. The owners, Nicolas and Carine, were wonderful hosts, providing lots of local knowledge and lovely treats to make the stay memorable. If you want a luxurious, quiet and restful break, this is the place! Keith and Glenda from Australia.

An inviting and clean home with many thoughtful amenities and excellent hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this beautiful and modern home after many days of traveling in the cities. We found the country setting and gracious hosts to be exactly what we needed to end our European travels. Nicolas and Carine are very warm and welcoming which shows in the the thoughtfulness of detail taken in arranging their guest home. We especially were thankful for the extra space to relax, games, tourist information, and personal insight. The town of Ellezelles was also wonderful with very friendly people and excellent beer and sausages! Our only complaint is that we did not have more time!

Super séjour! A refaire !!

  • 5 of 5

Le gîte était nickel de chez nickel et il y avait de nombreuses attentions pour nous recevoir (demaquillant avec disque pour les filles, échantillon de parfum, petit mot à l'arrivée...) Ce sont des détails mais c'est tout ce qui fait la différence! Nous avons vraiment bien été reçu. Couple super gentil et agréable. Très flexible ! Rien à redire !

Le gîte est grand et nous avons eu de l'espace !

Les environs sont chouettes pour faire une ballade ou aller manger dans une bonne brasserie.

10/10 !

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Le gite est très agréable, idéalement rénové et très bien équipé. Les propriétaires sont très discrets mais présents à l'arrivée avec une multitude de visites à proposer. Un moment de quiétude dans la campagne wallonne, entouré de champ, de vaches et de chevaux.
