                                                          We came here for my sister's hen weekend and this place was everything she had asked for! When booking I was a little concerned about the distance from Bruges center but it turns out there was nothing to worry about as it was just a short walk to the train station. We had the best weekend and the villa was perfect! Would definatly book again.

                                                          We stayed in the house with our three grown up daughters. It was a wonderful vacation. The house was lovely and very clean. The owner was very friendly. We loved the outdoor dining table. We went on tours to Gent, Bruges and Bruxelles. We also went to the sea and the museum in Ypres. All in all we had a lovely time in Belgium.
