A Hidden Gem! 💎

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with 1 child, 1 teen & our 2 much beloved Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dogs. On arrival to our destination we were greeted what we can only describe as an absolute hidden gem! A country house surrounded by countryside. It is beautiful. We instantly fell in love & wanted to move in lol. We were surprised that a property as luxurious as Carpe Diem allowed our 2 pets it was wonderful as we love to travel with them as much as we can. The property was very clean & cosy & very well maintained. Joke & Dimitri are very hospitable & nothing asked was too much trouble. We very much enjoyed the use of the bikes that are included for use with the property. We biked to Brugge & back on most days of our stay. Even though the property is located in the countryside. There’s a supermarket, chip shop, cafe’s & restaurants, train station all within walking distance or short distance by bike ride. The garden to the property is huge & there were fruit trees & even a grape vine. There’s also a children’s play area. There’s a good sized pond with various koi carp & the kids enjoyed feeding them. We enjoyed our stay so much that we instantly re-booked up with the owner whilst still on our holiday & we can’t wait to return in May this year. Thanks again Joke & Dimitri! We all very much look forward to seeing you soon 😃 From all the Frost Family including our 2 dogs, Dinky🐶🐾 & Toy 🐶🐾 💕

Relaxing time had by all

  • 4 of 5

Carpe Diem is well suited to both those who wish to relax in its grounds and take in the quietness of the countryside, or make use of the well maintained bikes and cycle along the safe routes at hand. We did both. There is a good choice of paths for cycling along, stopping to pick blackberries en route, watch out for wildlife, or by the side of the canal to pond dip - the bucket was actually provided, together with an identification chart! It is possible to cycle along to Brugge, but we weren't that energetic! However, we did drive there, and to Gent and to the Zoute area of Knokke-Heist- where we found many free to enter art galleries in the latter. Access to the motorway is easy from the house and in the first two towns we parked in Interparking car parks, with reasonable day rates, walking or taking the tram in. Back at the house, we used the trampoline and made use of the boules. There is plenty of outside space at the property. The garden furniture is plentiful and comfortable. You can also eat at the outside table and watch the carp (and frogs) in the pond. Inside the property, Carpe Diem has a lovely, modern decor and is very well equipped as your home from home stay. The view from the larger, suspended bedroom is marvellous. The owner was very welcoming on our arrival, providing necessary information for our stay, and available at the end of the phone should we have needed her. For the three of us, it was an ideal size in a very peaceful location and we had a very enjoyable stay.

Fabulous holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous modern holiday cottage in a beautiful, peaceful location. It is very private and there is a large enclosed garden. The cottage has been lovingly furnished and is very clean, well equipped and cosy. Good cooking facilities - big cooker, dishwasher and lots of crockery and glasses. We were four hours late arriving due to closure of a motorway but the owner was very accomodating and extremely helpful. We were made very welcome.We only wish we could have stayed longer. There are bikes to use and lots of quiet roads and paths to explore. Bruges and Damme are within easy reach, as is the Belgian coast. An ideal place for couples. We had our dog with us and it was a perfect place for him - lots of space and walks. Excellant all round.

Lovely few days

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights.

Joke was very welcoming.The house was very clean and was very well equipped.

We visited Bruges 15mins drive away.Ghent and Ieper 30mins drive all well worth a visit.

The Chocolate House tearoom is a must to try the best hot chocolate in Brugge and the mini cake selection was so delicious.

We also did a tour of the WW1 area which was very informative and thought provoking..

Would certainly recommend this property .
