Relaxing in style
The home was lovely and very stylish. The shower is amazing! Bedding was comfortable though the stairs are slightly intimidating at first to go up to the bedrooms. As many have stated there isn’t privacy that many are accustomed to since you have to walk through one bedroom to get to the loft area. If you’re with family or friends like family there’s no issue.
The furnishings are very well done and we were impressed with the quality of everything. Even had bikes for us to use in the shed. Made for a fun journey to and around Brugge.
Joke is super easy to communicate with and very welcoming. She saw how tired we were from a long flight and drive so she gave us a little extra treat of a couple of Belgium beers and sparkling wine.
Looking out to see the cows and being able to feed the fish in the pond was a bonus.
We’d love to come back and enjoy this home again!
Un petit bijou!
Nous avons adoré notre séjour à Carpe Diem, ce petit bijou à la campagne! La maisonnette est aménagée avec goût et soin. Près de l’historique ville de Brugges, on peut facilement visiter plusieurs sites et monuments dans les alentours. Joke est accueillante et disponible en tout temps. Le calme règne à Carpe Diem. Bravo!
Great location for day trips
This property was the perfect location for our first trip to Belgium, and well situated for day trips to visit the many historic towns.
Communication with Joke was always great, and she was quick to answer our questions. If you enjoy being out in the beautiful countryside on your own, this is a great choice for you. You see beautiful green pastures as far as you look. It would have been a bit difficult to find on our own. Thankfully Joke led us there. Although it is out in the country, you are close enough to town for groceries, as well as convenient to the major highways when you want to explore further.
The house was well maintained, and quality materials and furnishings had been used. We found the kitchen great for preparing breakfasts, and had it been warmer we would have enjoyed the outdoor dining area. The many bikes in the shed was a nice bonus, and we were able to take a short ride on one of the country roads adjacent to the house.
We booked a two bedroom because of a snoring issue. The sleeping area is really a loft open to the downstairs, and is more of one room separated by louvered doors so that did not help with any noise. For just the two of us it was ok, but feel a second couple would be too tight, and the lack of bedroom privacy would have been an issue. Additionally, you had to walk through one of the 'bedrooms' to go downstairs to the bathroom. The stairs were more of a ladder, and may present a problem for folks with mobility issues. The water pressure in the shower was supurb! The furniture was very comfy. Don't plan on sleeping in as there are no curtains, and the sun will certainly let you know it is time to get up!
Although we enjoyed the house we found it a bit small. There is no place to put your stuff - no closets, cupboards, dressers etc. We ended up having to live out of one suitcase on the kitchen table, and the other in the living room. If these things are not a problem for you I would suggest you book this property.
Lovely quite geat away.
Spent 4 nights at Carpe Diem.
We drove over from the UK and head straight to meet the owner. We were taken around the property making sure everything was ok.
We basically loved it here. We brought our small dog who loved the garden.
The home is very very nice and has everything you need.
The surrounding area is very quiet, a few cows and that’s it.
We would come back.
Bruges is only 10km up the road
Superb relaxing holiday
A lovely modern house all by yourself but in walking distance of the village, which has a lovely supermarket. Brugges is so close by car. We also had a day in Ostend. The house has every thing you need.
A perfect country get away
Our family of 4 loved our stay at Carpe Diem. Hosts were very accommodating and provided a roll-away bed for our son. Kids loved the trampoline and feeding the koi. We enjoyed quiet bike rides. A perfect setting for dinners al fresco. Would recommend without hesitation.
We are rural and quiet, within walking distance there is a possibility of water sports ... you can make a nice bike route to the beautiful Bruges and the beautiful Damme ... not so far from Sluis to delicious stroll and eat well and shoppen..Verschillende museums and cinemas can be found in Bruges ... accessible by train, car or bike ...
