Quiet, perfect, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a dream place to stay. So quiet, very comfortable, and private. We wanted to be close to our daughter, who lives in Rixensart, and this is within walking distance to her home. But, there is plenty of parking space if you have a car.

Claire was wonderful at helping us figure out the internet, as was her son. We didn't have the breakfast in our option, but we understand it is amazing. Next time we will add that. That said, there is a well equiped kitchen with two types of coffee makers, a hot water pot, stove and fridge.

We can't wait to return next October.

Kleine maar gezellige nette cottage in een prachtige omgeving!

  • 4 of 5

De cottage staat op een mooi plek omgeven door een mooie tuin met prachtige bomen. Heerlijk rustige omgeving met veel privacy. Wij werden vriendelijk ontvangen waarna we naar de cottage gingen voor de nodige uitleg. Wij hebben heerlijk genoten van de omgeving en de prachtige steden zoals Leuven met de cottage als thuishaven!

superbe propriété.

  • 5 of 5

Un endroit assez extraordinaire. Un grand parc qui entoure une grande et magnifique maison. Une pelouse parfaitement entretenue. La piscine à proximité de notre appartement situé dans une petite dépendance. L'appartement est fonctionnel, une jolie cuisine bien aménagée et une chambre à l'étage très éclairée et joliment décorée. Beaucoup de classe pour l'ensemble de cette propriété, un emplacement idéal pour visiter Bruxelles et les villes de Louvain, Anvers, Namur et Liège. La proximité de la gare de Profondstart située à moins de 10 minutes est un plus et permet de se rendre à Bruxelles en 40 minutes. L'accueil réservé par Claire est très professionnel et sa présence est discrète.

Nous avons passé 4 jours dans ce lieu que nous ne sommes pas prêts d'oublier.

Brilliant

  • 5 of 5

We spent nine days in La Gallinette, a well appointed gite, run by wonderful hosts Damien and Claire Delacroix in a quiet setting of a larger estate off the beaten track. We really appreciated the efforts by our hosts, their family and the Belgians in general to try to communicate and help out despite our language limits. Damien's knowledge of beer and wine was much appreciated. And we thought the family dog was lovely. For Claire nothing is too much trouble and she was always ready to help. Their generosity was also much appreciated.

You are in the middle of history: the bridges at Limal and Wavre, we learned, were defended by the Prussians against the French in the battle of Waterloo in 1815. Historic towns like Brussels, Louvain and Namur are within easy reach by car and well worth exploring.
