There are a fair number of unique attractions available from accommodation in Belgium.

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.
