Lovely historic house in great town

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house! The description was accurate to the last word and the owner and her agent a joy to deal with. Everything went just as planned. The house is perfect for holidaying families, with comfortable good facilities. Location is great - central enough to walk everywhere but out of the bustle of the touristy town centre. The owner has put together a great 'guidebook' to Bruges and we tried several of the recommended restaurants, which were all of a good standard.

We had a great time!

Thank you to all our wonderful renters.

Lovely house, lovely hosts, great location

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded all our expectations. The house itself is beautifully done, all the amenities are provided, and Pascal went above and beyond to help us enjoy our stay. Take his recommendations! If we're lucky enough to come to Bruges again, we would love to stay here.

Lovely house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was in great condition and very clean and a really convenient location for exploring Bruges on foot. We've stayed in many rental properties but have never met owners as friendly and helpful as Pascal & Greet. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Great place to stay in Bruges

  • 5 of 5

Great cozy house. Really good location on quiet street, about a 10-15 minute walk to the Market And Burg Squares. Awesome restaurant 5 houses down (Toms Diner, make a reservation). House is very comfortable and has a lot of character,, including a traditional narrow staircase. Hosts are very friendly and helpful. My daughter left her purse at a local restaurant on our last night and they tracked it down and shipped it back to us. Will definitely try to stay here the next time we come back to Bruges

Staying at the De Hoedenmaker's was a wonderful experience . The home is old Flemish style but with everything we needed to be comfortable . The proximity is very walkable to the old town center and is in a very safe neighborhood . The owners were easy to get a hold of and extremely accomodating . Great stay Colleen
