Make a holiday rental accommodation or apartment in Flanders and Brussels, Belgium your home away from home

The regions of Flanders and Brussels are hugely cultural areas set in the unspoilt countryside, where good living and fun are essential parts of the Belgian way of life. Belgium is a small country, yet manages to cram in a huge amount of culture, historical buildings and beautiful countryside, which begs to be explored by foot, bicycle or horseback, and much of the country can be explored from a Brussels apartment or holiday rental in Flanders. Whether you are taking a short weekend break to Brussels or a long family holiday, there is plenty to entertain and invigorate, and some of the best cuisine to enjoy from a self catering holiday rental.

A great hoilda for any family with lots of childre

5 of 5
We stayed in the house with our grandchildren. They were never bored in the house and garden. Even if it rains there is enough space to play while the adults can be separate but near enough. Cycling is safe in Belgium even for six year olds. We cycle to the beach and into Veurne for ice-cream. The theme park and swimming pools at Plopsaland were also very near and popular. London is only 3 hours away, so no time for kids to be unhappy travelling. We travelled from Germany to De Panne by train. Easy!
