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.

Fell in love with the surround hifi system, fantastic sound. The approach in to the apartment is a little shabby but Nicky told us it was being renovated, and there is a building site next door which had a pump running all night. Your car is parked in a garage under the building with a coded door, so very safe. Overall once the building works have finished it will be an ideal place to stay again. Many Thanks to Nicky for the use of a beautifull apartment.

Piet was very friendly, met us at the apartment, and then left us to it after explaining everything.
