The house is excellent, in an amazing and quiet location,Amazing for children, full of games.

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at the house is convenient, there is parking, good and immediate communication with the owners of the house, we received a detailed explanation of the house and its contents, the courtyard with all its components.

The house consists of two floors, on the ground floor there is a living room, a dining area, a kitchen fully equipped with electrical appliances, and a toilet and shower.

On the second floor are the bedrooms (2).

The yard is very rich and large.

There are football gates, a trampoline, a wooden house with swings, 2 crates with many games for children, a private garden with a dining table and chairs, and 2 sun loungers.

And of course the pool, the crowning glory for children.

There is a large supermarket, a fast food restaurant, about 5 minutes away.

In the immediate surroundings of the house there are hiking trails in nature and cycling.

Jean-Charles Martin & Caroline and kids are very Nice and welcoming.

We enjoyed ourselves very much, warmly recommend and will probably return.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect place to stay to tour the country of Belgium. The owners live on-site and are warm and hospitable. They rented to us at a moment's notice and were accommodating in every possible way. They made great restaurant recommendations to us and had lots of incredibly helpful tourist brochures to help us decide how to plan our time. It was also very affordable! There were four of us: me, my husband, and a two kids, ages 9 and 13. We definitely hope to come back sometime soon! Thank you so much!

First class accom in tranquil & beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious, well-equipped gite, with friendly hosts. It was faultlessly clean on our arrival, and the gardens were tended on a daily basis. Here we were woken by birdsong in the morning, and felt immersed in nature. This is an excellent area for sightseeing. The caves at Han are spectacular, while the smaller "Grottes de Neptune" have a not-to-be-missed underground boat ride. The gardens at Lac de Bambois are wonderful, and the escargotiere at Warnant was fascinating. We (including out cat) particularly enjoyed late evening strolls along the abandoned railway line beside the property. We would heartily recommend this property and its hosts, and are already thinking of a return visit.

a great get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the 'cottage' in Furnaux. The house was beautiful,the area was fantastic. There are no stores in the town of Furnaux, but they are nearby (7 minutes drive). There's lots to see & do in the area and the owners are realy friendly en helpfull. You have to have a car to get to all the activities, but they're all within about half an hour drive. It was great that our dogs could come with us to a house of this kalliber. The area was great for walking. It was great to have the peace an calm of the town of Furaux in combination with all the possible activities so nearby.

Base de départ idéale

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine actif dans votre gîte agréable. Bien situé pour faire un tas d'excursions : l'abbaye de Maredsous, le lac de Bambois, Namur, Dinant. Pour les fan du vélo : le ravel pour les randonneurs et les vtt on recommande le massif forestier du Tournibus.
