Best Cottage in Belgium

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jan and Margaret for the beautiful cottage in Belgium sitting on a wonderful pond with ducks, doves and song birds. Your loving care of the gardens flowed into the cottage and made us feel so at home. The location made it so easy for us to visit all sorts of towns and villages in Flanders and then come home to a quiet safe neighbourhood. In our one week stay, Jan came over each day with maps, suggested itinerates, tips for parking and recommendations for restaurants. He even made some reservations for us. One day, Jan was our personal tour guide to Middleburg, sharing stories with us that we would never have known without him. It was so appreciated how much of a host Jan and Margaret were. Flanders, Belgium is a beautiful land and we will surely want to return one day. 5 out of 5 !!! OUTSTANDING

Paraiso escondido entre Brujas y Gante

  • 5 of 5

¡Volveremos! Mi marido, mi hija y yo pasamos tres días encantadores de atardeceres mágicos, respirando paz y descansando en un jardín idílico. Jan y Margarett fueron los anfitriones perfectos; guías atentos, pendientes de todo lo que podríamos necesitar, sugiriendo ideas, lugares e itinerarios. Compartimos risas y experiencias (y algunos vinos). El cottage es acogedor amplio, y totalmente equipado con calidad y cuidado. En resumen, no creo que exista un mejor lugar para relajarse, y sentirse acogido como en familia después de un ajetreado día de visitas.

Mom had such a great time there

  • 5 of 5

Hello Margaret and Jan,

We had a great trip home and it was nice to get back to our lives here. Not that we did not enjoy your country, but it is always good to arrive home again.

Mom had such a great time there, as did Candee and I.

Thanks again for your hospitality; you have a beautiful country and we certainly hope to get back again.

Take care and perhaps we will see you here some day!

A big hugh

Paradies hinter unscheinbarer Fassade

  • 5 of 5

Die unscheinbaren Häuserfassaden der Wohnstraße nahe der holländischen Grenze lassen kaum erahnen, welches romantische Paradies sich dahinter verbirgt: ein großer Teich mit schönem Baumbewuchs und vielen -sonnigen oder schattigen - idyllischen Veranden, Stegen und Sitz- bzw. Liegeflächen. Das Ferienhaus bietet viel Platz, geschmackvolle Einrichtung, 4-Sterne-Komfort, großes Wohnzimmer und Veranda mit "Seeblick". Der Vermieter kennt sich sehr gut in der Region aus und gibt gerne Tipps zu allen Touri-Fragen: Museen, Restaurants, Stadttouren, Parkplätze und diverse "Geheimtips". Für Besuche zwischen Brügge, Gent, Antwerpen ein idealer Aufenthaltsort für Kleingruppen von 2-4 Personen, für 4-6 sicher - auf Anfrage beim Vermieter- auch möglich (im Wohnzimmer sind zwei große gemütliche Couches). Wir werden mit Sicherheit noch einmal dorthin fahren.

Endroit paradisiaque

  • 5 of 5

Quelle surprise nous avons eu en arrivant dans cette superbe maison....tout y était , propreté et accueillante avec des jardins à faire rêver et surtout situé à proximité de Bruges,Gand,Anvers et de Middelburg aux Pays Bas.

Nous avons adoré les propriétaires Jan et Margaret....des hôtes formidables et toujours disponibles pour rendre notre séjour agréable.

Nous en profitons pour vous remercier grandement Margaret et Jan pour votre dévouement et votre gentillesse lors de notre séjour dans votre beau petit coin de paradis.

Ce fut un séjour inoubliable qui restera à jamais marqué dans nos cœurs.

Super Urlaub in Flandern

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schönes Haus mit tollem Garten und Teich, in allen Bereichen

außen genügend Sitz-und Liegegelegenheiten. Die Gastgeber top, immer mit neuen Anregungen zu Ausflügen und Sehenswürdigkeiten.

Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt, es ist alles vorhanden, was gebraucht wird.

Jan und Margarete empfehlen Restaurants, die man unbedingt auf-

suchen sollte. Wir haben uns sehr gut betreut gefühlt. Dieses Haus hält, was es verspricht. Wenn man uns fragt, wo man in Belgien gut

wohnen kann, wir könnten ruhigen Gewissens das " Haus am Teich "


Danke - Jan und Margarete - für die schöne Woche bei euch in

Breskens / Groede
Car: recommended


The village of Assenede is one of the oldest villages in Flanders and near the border with Holland.

The region is ideal for cycling, walking, relaxing and fishing and of course to discover the historical towns of Ghent , Bruges, Antwerp, Damme, Middelburg (NL) 40 km. The Dutch North-sea Coast with the resorts of Breskens, and Knokke 20 min drive by car.

The willow-lined canals, lush green pastures and extensive soft, sandy dunes of Flanders need no introduction; their beauty has been captured for centuries by some of the world's greatest artists. The Meetjesland, however is known only to a discerning few, yet it has much to offer anyone seeking peace and quiet. It's one of those rare corners of Western Europe where time has virtually stood still and man has barely changed the face of nature.

Today it's a land of creeks and polders, tall fields, « sleeping » dikes and old smugglers routes in the north and woodlands in the south which contain beautiful castles and castle farms.

Other Activities: Kano - kayak
