Overview

About the property

A charming annexed cottage to the main house dating back to the early 20th century. Beautiful countryside situation with panoramic views over the surrounding fields and woods. The well equipped and roomy (90 m²) cottage was completely renovated in 2011, with a very cosy and homely feel. It has central heating, quality furnishings, fabrics and original artwork. Off road parking area. Nice garden with heated outdoor swimming pool (open 5 months/year). In the immediate vicinity, you are sure to find something of interest be it cultural, historical, gastronomic or sports-related: 3 golf links (Bercuit, Bawette and LLN), amusement park Walibi, horseback riding, cycling, walking, restaurants, theater, cinema, cultural activities. Within a short drive of the university of Louvain-la-Neuve and the business areas of Wavre with their multinational companies, the cottage is ideally convenient for a longer stay, e.g. for expats having an assignment for several weeks or months. Brussels is only 30 kilometers away. A stay can be combined with French language and culture classes, given by the proprietress who is a French teacher.

Wonderful, relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was wonderful, and the owners incredibly helpful and kind throughout our stay. It was a tremendously relaxing week, and I'd readily recommend it to anybody. Our two kids loved the pool, as did we. If we can, we'll be back.

Perfect vakantiehuis

  • 5 of 5

De plek van het huis was bijzonder mooi met een geweldig uitzicht en mooie bloeiende tuin . De eigenaren zijn uitermate vriendelijk en behulpzaam als dat nodig was verder bleven zij heel prettig op de achtergrond . Van binnen is het huis van alle gemakken voorzien met prima bedden en een uitstekende douche . De meegebrachte fietsen konden veilig opgeborgen in een schuurtje . Al met al een aanrader voor fijne fietstochten en het bezoeken van Mechelen , Leuven en Brussel . Op zo’n 2 km. afstand zijn er 2 supermarkten en meerdere horeca om uit eten te gaan waaronder een uitstekende Italiaans restaurant . Wij hebben er een top vakantie week gehad

Traumhaftes Ferienhaus bei herzlichen Gastgebern

  • 5 of 5

geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Ferienhaus mit allen Annehmlichkeiten, großer Garten mit großem Pool. Ruhige Lage, ideal zum Erholen und für Ausflüge in die Umgebung. Brüssel ist mit dem Auto in 20 Minuten erreichbar (Park & Ride am Stadtrand empfehlenswert).

Wir haben unseren Urlaub hier sehr genossen!

Prachtig vakantiehuis met erg aardige eigenaren

  • 4 of 5

Het vakantiehuis in Bonlez is ons uitstekend bevallen. Het huis is mooi en volledig ingericht, van alle gemakken voorzien. Inclusief het zwembad! Zowel bij ontvangst, tijdens het verblijf als bij het vertrek waren Francoise en Paul zeer attent, gastvrij (zelfgebakken wafels!) en behulpzaam. Van enkele van hun tips (blauwe hyacinten in het Hallerbos en de Fondation Folon) hebben wij dankbaar gebruik gemaakt. De ligging van het huis is prachtig, met weidse uitzichten over velden, bos en het kerkje van Bonlez beneden in het dal. Daarnaast is de snelweg Brussel-Namen in enkele minuten rijden te bereiken en ligt Brussel binnen handbereik. En wandelmogelijkheden genoeg in de omgeving. Het enige (kleine) minpunt is het autoverkeer wat vooral 's ochtends vrij hard langs het huisje rijdt, met het daarbij behorende geluid. De eigenaren overleggen al met de gemeente om hierin verbetering aan te brengen.

Wij kijken terug op een erg prettig en mooi verblijf, wat we helaas al na 4 dagen moesten beëindigen. Graag waren we nog langer gebleven!
