As a group of amateur historians each year we visit an area of the Western Front from WW1. This year we were looking at actions linked to the start of WW1 and the end of the same conflict which drew us the region around Mons. T'Nophof proved to be the perfect location allowing us to visit the sites of the main actions and also return to an amazing property which fitted our needs perfectly. The multiple spaces t'Nophof provides as a consequence of the oweners' very sympathetic conversion of old farm buildings into a multi-purpose holiday let allowed us to sit quietly, dine in spectacular surroundings and yet feel we each had our own individual space.
Greta was the perfect hostess, meeting us on arrival and providing an extensive tour to explain all the opportunities and then coming back to see us off at the end of our stay.
Kluisbergen is also the perfect location for those interested in cycling as it is located amidst the main climbs of the Belgian Spring Classic rides and would be perfect for any group looking to immerse themselves into Belgian cycling, even for a few days.
The location t' Nophof, is close to Oudenarde and Ronse, but you need a car to go to the supermarket. For cyclist it is the perfect place to stay for riding and watching Ronde Van Vlaanderen. Oude Kwaremont, Paterberg and Koppenberg, is all only a few kilometers away from the house. We were seven adults and five kids, staying together, and riding the bike every day for 5 days. We ride the "We Ride Flanders" on Saturday and watch the RVV on Sunday at Oude Kwaremont. The house had all the equipment you need for making breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bedrooms were all large and the beds were good. It was all over a very clean and neat place. The garden/outside were very nice and had god space for playing football and so on. In the "garage», they were a big space for keeping the bikes.
Thanks to Greta, the "housekeeper", that live next door. She is the perfect host.
We will come back!
nice house, roomy
We booked in autumn. Cozy rooms with made up beds on arrival.
Good contact with the owners, fast feedback.
You find everything you need for a nice vacation.
Perhaps 1 unconvenience: the kitchen is too smaal for such a big group.
The location is perfect, in a hilly area to go mountain biking. And after a good ride, you can relax in the authentic living. The owner even guided us with his bike through the beautiful region, super!
