“Lovely house in a great location”

There were just three of us staying in Abacus House so we had loads of room. Our teenage daughter took over the top floor which worked really well but this house would easily accommodate seven people with room to spare. We loved the light airy feel and the whole house was very comfortable with good quality beds and linen. The location is fantastic for exploring Ypres and further afield. Although there is not designated parking we had no trouble finding a space although sometimes not right outside the door.

With just over an hours drive from Calais this would be ideal for a short break.Ypres is lovely with plenty of shops and restaurants close by. There is a great fish shop and butchers just around the corner and a Carrefour 5 minutes walk away.
Johan was very helpful and the booking process and arrival/departure was very straight forward. We would not hesitate to recommend this house and hope to return again in the future.

“Great place to be in 2014 not so in 1914”

This has got to be one of the best locations in Ypres. 300m to Menin gate and Cloth Hall. Dozens of restaurants and plenty of good quality shops if that's what you want. Abacus house is well equipped and very comfortable. Just what we ended for our 4 day trip. The house is large and well capable of accommodating 8 adults.
Johan couldn't have been more helpful. We needed to change our arrangements because of a bereavement at the last minute.

Excellent accommodation, very well equipped and beautifully decorated it was more like a home than a holiday letting. Anyone wanting to stay in Ypres would not be disappointed renting this house as it is also positioned excellently, near to the square and the Menin Gate. Johan was lovely and it seemed as though nothing was too much trouble.

“Lovely experience”
Reviewed 13 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The house was really lovely, clean, bright and spacious and contained everything we needed. Johan the owner met us on arrival and showed us round the house and answered any questions we had. The house is brilliantly positioned with everything in walking distance. The beds are the best I have ever experienced in a rental property, it was a delight to get into them.

“Count yourselves lucky to choose Abacus House”
Reviewed 9 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Everything you read about Abacus House is true! This definitely deserves a 5-star rating. It's spotlessly clean, spacious, comfortable, warm and tastefully furnished. The location is perfect for visits to the In Flanders Field Museum and the Menin Gate and there's plenty of useful guidebooks and leaflets to help you plan your outings. We didn't do any cooking, preferring to take advantage of the many restaurants you can find within a 5 minute walk. However, the kitchen was well stocked with everything needed, had we decided to cook for ourselves. Having a piano was an enjoyable bonus and it was great having wifi. Best of all was the 'beer fairy' who left us a generous offering in the fridge. All in all, the accommodation was brilliant and Ypres/ Ieper an interesting place. I would highly recommend a visit to both and our hosts left nothing to be desired - thanks for everything.
