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.

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.

nothing to complai

  • 5 of 5

We are Belgians living abroad and we used the house for our summer break. We stayed in the house for 10 days with our 4 kids. Location was perfect for us (very central) and it was easy to move around the country to catch up with family and friends. House was clean on arrival, and we appreciated the fact that the kitchen had some basic cleaning products, spice, etc.. to start with. Garden is lovely.

Communication with landlord was easy before and after our stay, good briefing notes inside the house and we didn't need any assistance during our stay. Deposit was refund quickly and without issues. We would certainly use the house again.
