Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a marvelous week in Brugge. Your home was so nicely located,very cozy, and with a well stocked kitchen,all of which made the trip indeed memorable. Your agent Mr Grande was very helpful. Your house book was full of all the information needed, and contributed to a very expansive sightseeing experience.

You can be assured of our return visit one day and that we will recommend your home to friends contemplating a trip to Brugge.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed for a long weekend. The house was just the ticket - absolutely everything we needed and more. No cake forks but perhaps they're just English! Francis was charming and helpful. Bruges is just gorgeous - everything we did and saw was delightful. Hint: hot chocolate by the big food market comes with a free advocaat shot between 10.00 and 12.00 on market day.

Wonderful unique period home.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five loved this charming home. We enjoyed the spacious layout and convenient location to explore the wonders of Bruges. Centered in the old city, sights, shops, restaurants and bars are all within walking distance. Enjoy the twists and turns of the old quarter - a real adventure! Francis and Marie-Christine are very welcoming, professional and helpful. The home itself is very clean and well outfitted. Our three teenagers were in awe of the character and history of the house. We were all very comfortable and after long days of sight seeing, were happy to come back to a place that felt like home.

The best rental we have ever stayed in

  • 5 of 5

You must stay at this home! Of all the rentals we have stayed in over our many trips abroad, this was the best. The house is very spacious and has everything you could possibly need in it or nearby. We were easily able to pretend we lived there. The location is great, as it is far enough away from the tourist area to be quiet and tranquil, but close enough (10 minute walk) to see the sights when you want to. The hosts were great and provided a lot of useful information about Bruges. I would happily stay in this rental again!!

Wonderful house in Bruges

  • 5 of 5

De Hoedenmaker certainly lives up to a "charming 17th Century Flemish home". It has all the conveniences of home...including a washer and dryer which we found very helpful. The house is just a short and enjoyable 8 minute walk to the central Square. And, only a 20 second walk from Tom's restaurant. Do make reservations for evening meals as it is a very popular place. If staying in though, the kitchen has everything anyone would need to prepare a delicious meal. If we return to Bruges we'll be sure to stay once again in this wonderful home. Francis, the owner, is as charming as De Hoedenmaker is itself. He is proud of the house and very helpful if there's anything that requires his attention. You won't be disappointed if you're fortunate enough to stay in this extremely well maintained and spotless property.

A Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 6 including a child (6-years old) at this home and had a wonderful time! The listing of the home was completely accurate and we found things just as expected. The home was exceptionally clean and well maintained, and was obviously decorated with care. Marie-Christine greeted us and was amazingly helpful in getting us oriented to the property, and making suggestions about activities that might interest us in Bruges. It was an easy (and charming!) walk to the center of town. We'd absolutely recommend this home to people heading to Bruges.

Best of Brugge

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at this beautiful and comfortable house. It was very well maintained and so tastefully decorated, just perfect. Marie-Christine met us on arrival and showed us through this delightful house, and gave us much useful information about Brugge. The location was excellent, within easy walking distance to all the attractions and shops for supplies. We enjoyed the waffles, beer and restaurants, including Tom's Diner across the road, and of course the chocolates. A nice touch was the little bowl of chocolates in the lounge room. We had a great time and if we were to return to Brugge we would love to stay here again.
