About Johanna van de Grift

After a hectic life and have lived in a noisy environment, we have chosen to live in the Ardennes. We are settled here and enjoy every day of the beautiful surroundings. That is why we are totally behind to rent our villa to other people to give it the same.

Johanna van de Grift purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Johanna van de Grift chose Luxembourg Province

We lived first near Amsterdam

at that time we had a holiday house in the Ardennes and wen

we stopped with working to go live forever in the Ardennes.

What makes this bungalow unique

We have chosen a village that is not too big but

yet all facilities owned. That's why we chose Bomal it's a

romantic castle village and offers everything you need. There is a large Spar,, a pharmacy, doctor, dentist, hairdresser, bank, bookstore, bakery, indoor tennis court, playground and an opportunity to rent canoes and cozy round square where you can have a drink. Bomal is not only known for its beautiful scenery and hiking opportunities there's also Sunday market is well known.

Absolutely flawless in all respects

  • 5 of 5

I want to start off by saying that Johanna and Jean were amazing! They met us when we arrived and showed us around the place, explained how to work things that we were unfamiliar with, and made us feel at home. This is so important when the appliances have unfamiliar words and symbols on them. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pans, utensils, spices and coffee. The picture that they made of us was a nice touch and the complimentary bottle of wine and beer samples were appreciated. My wife was an art teacher so she appreciated what Johanna had done with design inside and outside.

This was the nicest home that we have rented in five years. Everything needed for a great stay was available. The house was very clean and everything worked to perfection. I am a compulsive fixer, so in that regard I was stymied. We tried to leave the house as good as we found it, but that was a pretty high standard to achieve. We loved the heated and enclosed pool. It was very welcome after a day of sightseeing.

Bomal sur Ourthe is a nice quiet town from which to explore. The center of town is within walking distance. It also has a very large and fun outdoor market on Sundays. As an American, the trip to the Ardennes American Cemetery and Memorial near Liege was very moving. There were so many things to see within a two hour drive that we wished we had more than two weeks there. We are all Andre Rieu fans, so a trip to Maastricht was mandatory to see the square where he gives his hometown concerts. The shopping there was also great. We did not find anything but good restaurants when we ate out, so Hooray for Belgium and its very friendly people. We appreciate you.

To summarize:

Great hosts!

Amazing house!

Wonderful location!

Friendly people!

Fantastic vacation!

The house and garden were perfect. It surpassed

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property with such friendly neighbours.

We arrived on Saturday afternoon and received a very warm welcome from Johanna.

The Kids loved being in the pool ~ they found swimming in the rain 'weird but fun'. They were never short of things to do for 2 weeks especially when we went for walks round Bomal and loved seeing the ducks most mornings whilst out a walk.

If you go into town the little pub on the corner is nice if you want to chill and you can sit inside or out but you're always met with a smile.

We went to Spa, Bastogne and Ypres as the house is within a reasonable distance to these attractions.

The house has everything you could ask for and much more.

We would definately recommend this property to anyone wanting to holiday in this area.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this is wonderful property for 2 weeks and can't fault it. The house was immaculate and had everything we needed plus some! Our boys of 8 and 10 didn't want to leave the house. The village is an easy stroll, with a lovely park, play area, cafes, Spar, shops etc. It was an easy drive from the port and one we hope to do again soon.

Absolutely fantastic vacation location

  • 5 of 5

Without doubt the best accommodation we have ever found for a family holiday. We were met by the really lovely owners and made to feel incredibly welcome. The property was immaculately clean with everything included for a relaxing and stress free holiday from toys and DVD's for the kids through to a super fast internet connection. The village of Bomal is lovely with all the amenities you need within easy walking distance. Durbuy just down the road is a gem and many beautiful places such as Luxembourg, Maastricht and Brussels are within easy driving distance. I would thoroughly recommend this lovely house to anyone, we definitely intend to visit again.

Magnificent house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this stunning house, which is perfectly located for exploring the Ardennes. The property has all the mod cons (wifi, large screen TV, washing machine, dishwasher, etc), plus a few bonus items like the sauna, solarium and, of course, wonderful heated swimming pool. Situated on a quiet side street in Bomal-sur-Ourthe, the house offered easy access to all the places we wanted to visit in the region, which included Durbuy, Bastogne, Walibi Belgium (an hour away by car) and Monde Sauvage Safari Park. We only wish we could have stayed longer!
