exceeded all our expectations
We arrived to a warm welcome from Florence and Pierre, we were given a tour of the property and found the whole home to be very clean and tidy both the inside and the garden area just as the photos showed,
They had lots of information as to what to do and were to go if you required it,
We were very pleased with the property and was a pleasure to stay in your lovely home
We would not hesitate in renting this property in the future and would recommend it to anyone visiting the area, once again thank you Florence and Pierre.

Classy comfortable holiday home in lovely countryside.
A warm welcome from the owners was a nice way to start our holiday and nothing was too much trouble.The gite was comfortable, clean and well equipped. The games room was good fun too.
Thank you for your comment and for taking care of the house. Everything was perfect after your departure. We would be happy to welcome you again in the future.
This is a beautiful and very well kept home! We loved the chickens and the side yard and the eggs! Anything that the host can do to make your stay comfortable and organized has already been done. Very impressive. She has a very fine tuned System down which is really nice! She’s clearly a master Gardner and the garden is exquisite. It’s a nice country home that is away from it all. The home was EXTREMELY clean.
The only reason I can’t give us a five star is because the beds are extremely uncomfortable. Master bed is very hard and you can literally feel springs in the mattress. I ended up sleeping in one of the twin beds after the first night which was just fine.
Note for anyone with babies or toddlers:
GORGEOUS AND WELL KEPT home with plenty of amenties for babies and kids.
There are a lot of things that are a little bit scary if you have toddlers or babies. Large gaps in between the stairs and a lot of falling risks (large gaps between slats on the railings and a concrete landing) and super steep stairs (think ladder stair combo) in the home. The yard is not fenced (to no fault of the owner or home) but I couldn’t let my little go outside alone. Again, amazing owner and Home, just a heads up for those with little.
Thank you for your comment, Jennifer. We are trying to do the best for our guests and really feel concerned, but I'm really surprised that you didn't tell us anything during your stay because we could have solved the problem by changing it. You are the first one in 16 years saying the bed is uncomfortable. I presume it was the yellow bedroom bed. It is a medium firm latex mattress and nobody complained about it. We regularly change our mattresses since we began to rent this house. We put 3 new mattresses last year (blue and melon bedrooms) and we are going to check all of them because a problem can appear at any time. Some people prefer hard mattresses and some others soft ones. It is not really easy to find a mattress suitable for everyone... And there are people coming to our place since 10 years : if the beds were uncomfortable, I don't think they would come again or they would have told us !
And regarding the stairs, the gaps between slats have a standard size in Europe, and when you mention "super steep stairs", it only relates the stairs going to the second floor, not the other ones ! And I would rather say "steep" better than "super steep" ... And I would like to mention that once again you are the first one telling us this, and we have rent this house for 16 years.
I don't understand what you mean by "concrete landing". What else could we have ? Wooden floor ? We have wooden floor everywhere except on the ground floor where it is natural stone, and not concrete.
Last thing : you say "the yard is not fenced" BUT the garden in front of the house can be enclosed. You just had to close the front gate and you could have let your little 2 years old go outside alone and even have an eye on him ! Regarding the other part of the garden which is very large, it is true that it is not yet fully fenced, but anyway I think that you couldn't let your 2 years old alone in that part of the garden as a so large place is not suitable for a young 2 years old child alone : nobody can imagine what children can do !
We wish you the best to you and all your family. Best regards
Florence et Pierre
Clean, cozy and warm!
We were very pleased with our stay at Gite Alize. The owners were very accommodating - they answered questions via email very quickly and their English was adequate (which we were very thankful for!). The house was one of the cleanest HomeAway's we've every stayed in. The highlight for our children were the chickens and the farm fresh eggs. The Belgian beer, homemade jam and apple juice and yummy chocolates were a nice welcome. The kitchen is well stocked and they have most everything you need to make a delicious meal. The surrounding area of Ramelot is beautiful. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family. We hope we can welcome you another time in the future !

Comfortable, quiet, lovely!
We really enjoyed our short break here. The cottage had everything we needed and more, and the owners are really lovely.
The location made a perfect base for exploring the area, knowing that we'd be back for a comfortable and relaxing evening each day.
There was easily enough space for us, and we'd really like to go back to make more use of the garden next time.
Overall very highly recommended.
We stayed at this lovely gite for a week with 2 adults and 5 children ( 2,7,10, 13,13). It was the right size for us and not once did it feel crowded or cramped. The front garden was the area the children used most as it was ideal to play badminton and it also had the strongest wi-fi signal! The house has everything you need and more, the kitchen is well stocked with utensils, pans, glasses etc.. There are lots of leaflets and information books for the surrounding areas and attractions.
The owners were very helpful on several occasions. On our first day our youngest daughter was ill and needed a doctor. The owners rang around the doctors and got us an appointment on a sunday. Very impressed!! The owners are close by if you need them but we never felt like they were watching us. The village itself does not have a lot but the surrounding areas have everything you need. We stayed a week and were busy everyday visiting theme parks, castles, parks and going on river tours. We did not realise how pretty this part of belgium was (Namur, Dinant, Huy and Durbuy are all lovely towns). There were quite a few things we wanted to do but ran out of time. The house is a great base to explore this part of belgium.
The only negative thing was the wifi signal was not great inside of the house. This was fine with the adults but not so great with the internet dependent children!! But its a holiday, who needs wifi when you have the great outdoors!!!
