Ingrid gave us all a very warm welcome. The house is next door to a beautiful woods which was very handy for walking the dogs. Brasserie next door serves great food and drink (also allows children and pets inside) . Auld Antwerp 10 mins walking distance was great. Fab food. Xmas market in brasschaat was very good. Monday’s market was quite good as well. Supermarkets nearby are Albert Heinz (great) only take maestro or cash, del haize was good , handy carrefore express in donkekessbugh. Crossroads outside couldbe noisy. Staircase could be an issue for young children or older guests. Extremely steep stairs.
