“Perfect cottage, perfect location. :)”
Reviewed 23 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

homely , spotless clean ,charming host. It is the perfect location for sightseeing and everybody made you feel very welcome . The cottage is a perfect retreat after visting the many historial sights of Flanders and surrounding areas , very easy to vist;
We will be returning again this year to see more delights of Belguim and of cause the wonderful charmimg Marie who makes you feel so very welcome . Maria knows all the places of interest and nothing is a problem . She even got into her car to find us when we got lost on the first day! little suggestion need more information on directions how to reach the cottage as most people have sat navs but still had fun driving round Belguim trying to locate the cottage.

“Warm welcome and everything you need is there”
Reviewed 2 February 2015 for a stay in October 2014

Hi This is a great place. Marie is really helpful and let's you know of events happening in the area. We felt very welcome. The cottage has everything you need and there are bikes in the garage to borrow. We enjoyed our few days .

“Perfect location for a family visiting WW1 and WW2 sites near the Belgium/France border”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The house is a refurbished farm property set in a beautiful rural setting with easy access by car to food shopping and a number of WW1/WW2 sites. The food shops are also an easy bike ride. 4 bikes are provided. The house structure maybe old but the furniture and facilities are all very modern and in good working order. In our party of 5 we all rated the shower the best from a number of houses we have rented. The owner/manager Marie Therese (speaks various languages) was very helpful and even offered to loan us her bike as we were a party of 5 and the rental house includes 4 bikes. She recommended the local Patisserie, "Page", and it didn't disappoint. The local supermarket is also nearby. Local farm produce is available and there is even a strawberry punnet vending machine adjacent to the road! GPS longitude/latitude coordinates took us to the front door.

“A welcome country break with wonderful hospility”

We were delayed by nearly 12 hours due to flights being cancelled, but that didn't put off our wonderful host, Marie, brightly greeting us at the door of the cottage at midnight in then to pouring rain! We had emailed earlier to let her know we would be late so she had bought us bread, bacon, eggs and cheese for the morning as shops would be closed on a Sunday so that was a huge help and we just paid at the end with the power (which was minimal incidentally).
The cottage is delightful with great facilities, and a gorgeous outlook from the back. It's in very easy driving distance to the western front and Marie has lots of information for you to access to make the best use of the area's history. Marie herself is to be involved in the light ceremony later in October this year.
Wifi worked well, washer and drier were a great use to us due to the miserable weather! Would recommend to anyone, although if you can't manage narrow stairs maybe look elsewhere, but perfect for us and will definitely try to revisit in the future.
Thank you so much Marie
