Francis & Louise Hardy purchased this house in 2012
This is a spacious, nicely furnished and well equipped house that is ideally suited for two couples or a family. Parking is available. The house is located in a residential area of the old city that is a 10 minute walk from Grote Markt. There are restaurants, pubs and a grocery store within minutes of the house. Communication with the owners could have been better. There was a problem with the washer/dryer unit the second last day of our stay which created a minor inconvenience. The owners were out of town at the time and did not respond to emails or telephone calls until after we had left. Nevertheless, I would recommend this house to those who are looking for a large and comfortable place to stay while visiting Bruges.
The property was full of character, very smart with comfortable beds and plenty of space, amazing value for money. Louise gave us a lovely welcome and was on hand if we needed anything. The kitchen was well equipped and we really felt 'at home'! Although it was only a short walk into the centre it was very quiet, a lovely place to come back to after a hard day on the cobbles! We were there with our two teenagers for a week and we still didn't manage to see everything.
We enjoyed our 1 week stay at this lovely home in a perfect location! It was great to simply leave our car & walk into the center of Brugge. Having all the amenities like Washing Machine/clothes dryer, full kitchen, TV & internet. We hope to return some day! Thank you for Louise & Francis for your kind & helpful assistance!
Wow what can you say negative about this lovely house. If you are looking for character/charm and idyllic gardens then this is it. Ideal for walking into the centre, supermarket 5 mins away & canal walk at the end of the street. Spiral staircase to bedroom & tower. A friendly welcome and cannot wait to return.
We stayed 'At Home' for five glorious days in September 2014. We were two couples and each had their own floor and bathroom ( total privacy). The rooms overlook a perfectly manicured courtyard garden complete with a table and several chairs. The beds were firm and we slept very well. The bedrooms and bathrooms had plenty of space to keep suitcases etc., spread out. There is also a half bath on the ground floor. The water is very hot!
Louse was very quick to respond prior to our arrival and quick to help with any question we had while we were there. She and her husband live on the property so they are very easy to get a hold of but we didn't see them unless we sought them out. They were very kind and allowed us to borrow the bikes whenever we wished. There were many to choose from. The bikes are basic and could use a brush up (tires) but very easy to just grab and go. We were thrilled to have them! There is also a bike rental a few blocks away. Louise readily offered tools to adjust seats. She also left very easy to follow directions on how the keyless locks work, the cooktop, etc. it was wonderful to have off street parking for our rental car.
The location was perfect, within the old city walls. We were able to walk or bike everywhere. The grocery (complete with wine) and bakery were very close and the kitchen had everything we needed to toss together simple meals.
The house was very clean and well appointed. Very comfortable and full of light. I can recommend 'At Home' to couples and families. While in Brugge don't forget to eat lots of chocolate and Belgian waffles, they are the best!
Our family of 5 stayed in At Home at the beginning of July 2014 and loved every minute of it. The house was perfect for my husband, our three kids and me to relax and literally feel at home. It is very well equipped (especially the kitchen), nicely decorated, and had everything we needed. The bedrooms upstairs are lovely, and so comfortable after a long day of walking and exploring.
The location of the house is great, a beautiful 10 minutes walk to the center Markt, there is a grocery store very near, and a wonderful bakery, De Soete, just a short walk away. We walked everywhere in Bruges from the house with no problem, and of course Bruges itself is stunningly beautiful with lots to see.
We had a car and were so thankful for the parking space provided. The house has a front door on the street and a back door to a lovely little garden which winds along to the beautifully manicured larger garden. The swing on the huge tree in the center was my son's favourite thing to do! Francis and Louise are such nice people, it was a pleasure every time we saw them. They are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable.
Although we spent quite a bit of time in Bruges, we also did some day trips from Bruges to Ghent, and to Ypres for a Flanders Fields tour. Both were fantastic.
We would recommend this house to anyone 100% and do intend to go back one day and stay.
