Even better than expected

  • 5 of 5

We, a family of two adults and one little girl, spent one week in Les Cinq Saules.

The house and the garden were exactly as described: beautiful, calm, spacious and with lots of flair. All the facilities we needed were there and in good condition. The location is suited very well for relaxing but also for trips to Brussels, Leuwen, Anntwerpen...

We had a wonderful time in this house and strongly recomend it to anyone who wants to spent the holidays near Brussels.

We loved the place

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the house with my husband and twin boys, one of the reasons we chose to stay this place that she has a big garden with swings that my twins enjoyed very much. The house was so clean, all beds were with clean sheets and covers. I was able to cook as I found in the kitchen everything I need, everything was functional. Twins could watch cartoons on TV, play in the garden. In front of the house there is a garden table with chairs so we had our lunches and dinners out :). The location of the house is great. We visited Ostend and Blankenberge, Gent and other cities. Very easy to find your way around.

Another good thing is that local supermarket was not far, so it would take us literally about 5-7 minutes to reach if we need groceries.

There are lots of trees surround the house, when it rained we put chairs under the garage cover and stayed there having coffee. The weather was fabulous in September! I would love us to visit the place again.

Preciosa casa

  • 5 of 5

Hemos pasado nueve días en Les Cinque Saules. La casa es bonita y comoda. No le falta de nada.

Nuestra intención era usarla como base para recorrer Belgica. Está bien situada en el centro del país. Un lugar ideal y tranquilo pero con facilidad para hacer compras.

Unas vacaciones muy agradables.

Belle demeure mais installations à revoir (électriques, eau...).

  • 3 of 5

Belle demeure mais des bémols sur certains points :

- nous sommes venus avec des enfants (la plus jeune 4ans) et nous avons été déçu par : le jardin car en pente et avec l'étang assez risqué, la balançoire installée à côté d'un arbre donc impossible de l'utiliser et complètement sale. Nous avons eu une fuite d'eau, une panne électrique et impossible de rétablir l'électricité (plus d'Internet, plus de télé...) certe des vacances, mais quand on a une ado, trop important. Et de plus, attention à l'escalier, très glissant, la plus jeune en a fait les frais. Les 3 chambres n'ont pas de porte, difficile quand on a des enfants de différents âges et de famille recomposée. Sinon, déco très sympa, avec beaucoup de goût et lieu magique avec la forêt juste à côté. Demeure pas loin de Bruxelles et des grands axes. Petite ville avec plein de commerçant, très appréciable.

Owner's Response: Ceci est notre première appréciation négative. J'utilise mon droit de répondre. La balancoire est tout à fait utilisable, l'arbre se trouve à quatre mètres donc je vois mal comment il peut gêner (voir photos). Il y a une pente dans le jardin (voir photos) - la maison se trouve dans une région onduleuse... Je n'ai jamais eu des commentaires sur la géographie de la zone. L'escalier et aussi glissant que tous les escaliers en bois (et ma fille de 10 ans ne s'est jamais glissée). Panne électrique? Oui, si on décroche de force un des cables de l'installation tv... Autres dommages constatés (pour lesquels je n'ai pas fait de déduction sur la caution!!): porte de la machine à laver décrochée / chaise du jardin brisée / prolonges des lampes decrochées / tri des déchêts: pas fait / poutre de démarcation entre l'entrée et la pelouse: brisée. En toutes ces années de location, c'est la première fois que j'ai louée ma maison à des hôtes avec une mentalité aussi négative et destructeuse... Dommage!

Séjour plaisant

  • 5 of 5

Cadre très agréable, calme, spacieux, tranquille... 2 belles semaines passées dans la région, la maison est centrale pour visiter la Belgique, la Hollande, l'Allemagne et le nord de la France. Très bonne communication avec la propriétaire, toujours disponible.

Juste un petit regret. Le chemin particulièrement étroit pour y arriver et impossible de laisser les enfants y faire du vélo ou de la trottinette, voire d'y aller seuls à pied.
