Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Belgium your home away from home

Holidays to Belgium and indeed the country as a whole has received an unfair wrap from the tourism industry. Constantly denoted as boring, Belgium actually has an incredible amount to offer if you are willing to see past the stereotypes. A country of astonishing beauty, especially in the regal architecture surrounding quaint, cobbled squares, Belgium has an infectious atmosphere of energetic relaxation, where life is enjoyed to the full.

Things to do on holiday in Belgium

Travel to Belgium also allows you to bask in culture, from the fine art museums and masterpieces of Brussels to the castles and flamboyant architecture in Namur or the numerous festivals across the country and throughout the year. There are a fair number of unique attractions available from accommodation in Belgium. The torture chamber of Ghent Castle makes eerily absorbing viewing, and the spectacular caves of Han will defiantly leave an impression. In all, Belgium boasts 13 UNESCO World Heritage sites, which form a ready made cycling holiday route.

If you are looking for a sporting holiday when renting holiday rental accommodation in Belgium, you will not be disappointed. Aside from the world famous cycling credentials, Belgium has excellent facilities for horse riding, golf, tennis and fresh water fishing, with hundreds of miles of picturesque rivers, lakes and streams where trout, perch, pike chub and grayling thrive.

Belgium is the original spa location too. The Thermes de Spa have been an official spa resort since 1868, and holiday accommodation in the area is the perfect place to retreat to after a full days pampering.

                                                                                                      I would highly recommend this apartment for a relaxing holiday at the Belgian coast. The owner was attentive before and during our stay and was easily contactable. Koksijde is a lovely seaside town and there is plenty to see and do in the town itself. The beach is stunning and as it is a short walk from the apartment we spent a lot of time there. We hired bicycles and go karts and played crazy golf. Koksijde is also a great base for exploring further afield and we enjoyed visiting Bruges, Ypres and the nearby town of Veurne. The apartment itself is truly beautiful with great attention to design details. It is bright and airy with a lovely balcony area for outdoor eating. The kitchen is equipped with everything you might need and more besides! The apartment was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. We all slept very well after long days exploring the lovely area. Many thanks and kind Regards to the lovely owner :) We will recommend to our friends and family
