I was looking for a place for myself and friends to visit the battlefield sites around West Flanders and Northern France during the centenary of Armistice.
The apartment was perfect and had everything that we needed for our stay.
Great value and I would highly recommend both the apartment and the couple who own it who are really helpful and considerate.
This is the first time we have used HomeAway and of course that meant we were a little apprehensive about what we had booked. How wrong we were -this property is amazing. We booked this around a year ago and paying via PayPal was super easy plus the messaging facility with the owner was very convenient. The owner replied every time very quickly and wrote superb English.
On arrival at the property, after travelling over on the Eurotunnel, we were 30mins early but that was no issue. The owners husband was there (sorry forgot your name) who was very welcoming and again his English was outstanding. He showed us around the property and in case we didn’t recall all the information there was a folder with all the bits and bobs plus extra info. He also gave us a few maps of the area which were helpful even with a SatNav.
The property itself was extremely tidy and clean. We have nothing bad to say about it. The beds were big and comfy but nothing of note - each double bed had 2 single duvets something which is very strange to us English but not a problem. In the bedrooms the windows were all remote controlled, which is very fancy, plus they close if rain is detected.
As we visited in October the weather wasn’t at its best so we did have to turn on the heating which worked a treat. Another bonus for us was the farm animals in the grounds. There were two tiny ponies and a flock of sheep, all of which were quiet and were a pleasure to watch. The owners are happy for the animals to be fed but we didn’t partake in this.
All in all this was brilliant, just what we were looking for. We will definitely be looking to book again. One last thing though, there are three properties here in one farm house. We had the two bedroom one which is on the far right.
