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.

Look for the icon of the city – a giant hand which relates to a local legend about a boy cutting off the hand of the giant. Antwerp is noted for its architecture including the 16th century Guildhouses, the ornate Cathedral and the grand City Hall.

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.)

He is very helpful even well before arrival with providing directions and tips for getting to and staying in Gent. "Customer service" is five star. The apartment itself is beyond excellent. It is very modern, well maintained, and even better than the description. The two stories and small patio makes it feel even roomier than it is, and the location is ideal. Set back from the street makes it quieter and even though there is a tram stop 100 meters away, we didn't find it necessary because less than a 10 minute leisurely walk put us in the market center. If you are driving into Gent it is also a very easy property to get to. The price and quality are unbeatable and I recommend this to anyone who is interested in staying in Gent. We stayed 10 days and I would stay 10 more if I have the chance.
