Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Gent, Belgium your home away from home

It is hard to imagine that the small medieval town of Gent (also spelt Ghent) was once Europe's largest city after Paris. It is now overshadowed by Brussels but has retained its wonderful architecture which lines the banks of the Scheldt and Leie Rivers. It remains the capital of Belgium's Oost-Vlaandered region. The university students ensure that Gent remains a lively city with plenty of attractions, restaurants and nightlife. As you explore the area around your Gent holiday rental, you will hear Dutch, Flemish, French and German spoken, although most people also understand English too.

We were most impressed with the house and the owners who went out of their way to make us feel at home and tell us about the local area. Everything is clean and the house is very well equipped. Leaflets and maps of tourist attractions across Belgium have been thoughtfully collected for guests to use. As we were travelling with a baby, Marc went out of his way to put toys in the house for her to play with. The garden is beautiful and we spent many evenings sitting on the patio. The location is excellent. The local area provides restaurants, supermarkets etc. and the centre of Ghent is a pleasant walk away. Bruges, Brussels, Antwerp and Ostend are all within an hour in the car. All of which we recommend. Alternatively the train station in Ghent is within walking distance of the property if you want to leave the car. We would definitely stay again if visiting Belgium.

The house/apartment was 5 to 10 minutes walk to the centre and is on the tram route through the centre to Sint-Pieters station. It's on the first floor and is self-contained and very spacious. It occupies 2 floors with lounge, kitchen and outside terrace downstairs and 3 double bedrooms upstairs. It was clean and well equipped with towels, bathrobes, bed linen, pillows and blankets. The Wi-Fi worked well. The owner (Bernard) welcomed us and showed us round the flat and gave us some tourist info. Nearby there is a small supermarket and an excellent bar playing jazz and good beer! If you're thinking about a trip to Ghent this is the perfect place to stay.

The parking space and wifi were a big plus. Stunning views from the terraces which were all round the apartment. It was just a 10 minute walk into the centre of Ghent which is a great city with friendly people, good food and of course lots of Belgian beers. Owners were very welcoming and helpful. Would recommend this fantastic apartment to anyone. (maybe not great for families with very young children as there are lots of beautiful ornaments which could get broken.)
