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

There is no other way to discover Belgium than taking a self catering lodging, whether it is an inner city apartment in Brussels, Brugge (Bruges) or Antwerp or a rural villa, purely due to the number of world class restaurants in Belgium, which seem to surpass every meal with the next delicacy.

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.

Belgium holiday accommodation is perfect for connoisseurs too. Although Belgium plays down their excellent culinary traditions, their global reputation for beer, waffles, chocolate and mussels speaks volumes for the country.

Places to holiday in Belgium Belgium is split into three districts, Wallonia, Flanders and Brussels.

Flanders and Brussels are cultural hotspots with massive amounts to see and explore. Flanders, which straddles parts of Belgium, France and Holland, has the world’s highest standard of living together with Norway. Antwerp, Ghent and Bruges are all lie in the Flanders region, and here are Belgium’s only beaches, covering a 42 mile stretch between De Panne and Knokke. Here, wide expanses of sand create popular getaways for Belgium holiday makers throughout the summer.

Wallonia is the southern part of Belgium, where blissfully peaceful rural villages, colourful festivals and stunning castles adorn the countryside. There are hundreds of miles of hiking and cycling trails, shear cliffs for climbing and many rivers and streams for fishing. Also on offer are hot air ballooning, golf and kayaking.

Weather in Belgium

Belgium has a very mild climate, although snowfall is common. In summer, temperatures average around 22°C, ideal for cycling and travel, whilst in winter, the beer festivals, spas and cultural cities mean that you quickly forget about the temperatures, which average around 4°C in the coldest months.

Belgium has many international airports receiving cheap flights direct from the UK. Antwerp (ANR), Brussels (BRU), Liege (LGG) and Ghent (GNE) all receive cheap flights to Belgium, so the best option for you depends on the location of your holiday rental in Belgium.

The property had been refurbished to a very high standard, which made our stay all the more enjoyable in Belgium. We would highly recommend this property. Owners lived on site so were always available to help and answer any questions. Visited Ypres and Bruges while we were there. Would love to go back there in the future.

It was very well equipped - all the kitchen consumables really appreciated and the lovely child's bedding in the cot. Our friends were in another apartment in the same building which meant lots of trips up and down the stairs which are beautiful but very steep and it would help if there was a bannister on the wall side. There was a problem with the boiler but the landlords sent someone very promptly to sort it and the apartment was then very well heated. The location is excellent and we could walk everywhere. It was not a problem to leave by 10.30 on the Sunday as there are plenty of luggage lockers at the station, leaving us free to do more exploring. We had a great weekend. Thank you.
