Excellent Stay in the Tour

  • 5 of 5

Wow what can you say negative about this lovely house. If you are looking for character/charm and idyllic gardens then this is it. Ideal for walking into the centre, supermarket 5 mins away & canal walk at the end of the street. Spiral staircase to bedroom & tower. A friendly welcome and cannot wait to return.

Great place to stay in a beautiful city!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 'At Home' for five glorious days in September 2014. We were two couples and each had their own floor and bathroom ( total privacy). The rooms overlook a perfectly manicured courtyard garden complete with a table and several chairs. The beds were firm and we slept very well. The bedrooms and bathrooms had plenty of space to keep suitcases etc., spread out. There is also a half bath on the ground floor. The water is very hot!

Louse was very quick to respond prior to our arrival and quick to help with any question we had while we were there. She and her husband live on the property so they are very easy to get a hold of but we didn't see them unless we sought them out. They were very kind and allowed us to borrow the bikes whenever we wished. There were many to choose from. The bikes are basic and could use a brush up (tires) but very easy to just grab and go. We were thrilled to have them! There is also a bike rental a few blocks away. Louise readily offered tools to adjust seats. She also left very easy to follow directions on how the keyless locks work, the cooktop, etc. it was wonderful to have off street parking for our rental car.

The location was perfect, within the old city walls. We were able to walk or bike everywhere. The grocery (complete with wine) and bakery were very close and the kitchen had everything we needed to toss together simple meals.

The house was very clean and well appointed. Very comfortable and full of light. I can recommend 'At Home' to couples and families. While in Brugge don't forget to eat lots of chocolate and Belgian waffles, they are the best!

Lovely, comfortable house for exploring Bruges

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed in At Home at the beginning of July 2014 and loved every minute of it. The house was perfect for my husband, our three kids and me to relax and literally feel at home. It is very well equipped (especially the kitchen), nicely decorated, and had everything we needed. The bedrooms upstairs are lovely, and so comfortable after a long day of walking and exploring.

The location of the house is great, a beautiful 10 minutes walk to the center Markt, there is a grocery store very near, and a wonderful bakery, De Soete, just a short walk away. We walked everywhere in Bruges from the house with no problem, and of course Bruges itself is stunningly beautiful with lots to see.

We had a car and were so thankful for the parking space provided. The house has a front door on the street and a back door to a lovely little garden which winds along to the beautifully manicured larger garden. The swing on the huge tree in the center was my son's favourite thing to do! Francis and Louise are such nice people, it was a pleasure every time we saw them. They are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable.

Although we spent quite a bit of time in Bruges, we also did some day trips from Bruges to Ghent, and to Ypres for a Flanders Fields tour. Both were fantastic.

We would recommend this house to anyone 100% and do intend to go back one day and stay.

"At Home" was like being at home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week staying 'At Home' in Brugge. The accommodation was perfect for our family with everything close to hand. The weather was good during our week's stay in February. We will be recommending this to our friends. We hope to return at some stage in the future to see if the egg cup collection has grown even more!

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

"At Home" was a charming place to stay with a wonderful location. It was an easy walk from the house to all of the attractions in Brugge. The grocery store up the street was perfect for picking up breakfast items and we cooked at the house two nights as well. We were 2 families with 4 kids total (2 infants). Francis and Louise were so accommodating, they brought over toys to for the kids to play with, had a small crib and a bed rail for the bunk beds. They were also were able to answer any questions and concerns about the house, and we appreciated their knowledge of Brugge. Our only suggestion would be that the chairs in the dining room and the couch in the living room need to be updated as they are not very comfortable. Thank you for a delightful stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks Tracy for you kind review. Thanks also for your suggestions. The chairs in the dining room are ancient: some are restored and some need restoration. It's true. The couch came directly from the upholsterer and you were the first user...maybe too new!!! We buy the other armchair now in January 2013. Kind regard Louise and Francis

Excellent in every way!

  • 5 of 5

I would give this property TEN stars if I could. The house is delightful, in a quiet street 10 minutes walk to the center of Bruges. This neighborhood is praised in Rick Steves' book for charm, convenience, discoveries and serenity. The Carrefours grocery a block away had everything, including fresh bread and croissants delivered at least twice a day. Several nearby restaurants (5 min walk) were a joy. The house is exceptionally well equipped for a rental, with top-grade appliances and a large sunny kitchen. The garden is brilliant. Best of all were the hosts, who were gracious, generous, knowledgeable, and helpful in every way. They have been renting for 16 years and their experience shows. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
