The house was well-equipped, and sparkling clean. We were there with four people, but it could be also comfortable for more. The location was in a very quiet area. It was the perfect house for us.

We spent 2 weeks in this Idyllic house which provided all the comforts we could look for. It was great for our 14 year old son and 11 year old daughter. We enjoyed the open garden and the beautiful Belgium country side. My daughter enjoyed looking after the cats, rabbits and chickens, and especially collecting the fresh eggs in the morning. From the house we could easily travel by bicycle, car or train to many interesting places within 1 hour. the cities of Ghent and Brugges are definitely worth visiting On our arrival at the house we were warmly met by Elena who had researched cycling routes and places of interest for us to visit. the house is spacious and well equipped. It was a place we could all easily relax in. In Scheldewindeke there is good shops and a train station with regular service to Ghent. Thanks Elena for all your help

A beautiful and comfortable home in a quiet rural location. Plenty of space for up to 6 people although we were a family of 3 adults and 2 children. Owners are quick to communicate and are very helpful. Train station for train to the city of Ghent is 5 mins drive where you can park for free. Train then takes 20 mins and can then connect to other belgian cities. Supermarket and other shops nearby, but would say that a car is useful for staying here. The kids were pleased to have 2 cats and rabbits to look after. Thank you Elena and Andy for letting us stay at your home.

Great house. We stayed there with 3 kids and we had more than enough space. The garden is superb, many opportunities to play with the kids. Feeding the animals rewards you with fresh eggs, to the great pleasure of the family.
