Best Cottage in Belgium

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jan and Margaret for the beautiful cottage in Belgium sitting on a wonderful pond with ducks, doves and song birds. Your loving care of the gardens flowed into the cottage and made us feel so at home. The location made it so easy for us to visit all sorts of towns and villages in Flanders and then come home to a quiet safe neighbourhood. In our one week stay, Jan came over each day with maps, suggested itinerates, tips for parking and recommendations for restaurants. He even made some reservations for us. One day, Jan was our personal tour guide to Middleburg, sharing stories with us that we would never have known without him. It was so appreciated how much of a host Jan and Margaret were. Flanders, Belgium is a beautiful land and we will surely want to return one day. 5 out of 5 !!! OUTSTANDING

Paraiso escondido entre Brujas y Gante

  • 5 of 5

¡Volveremos! Mi marido, mi hija y yo pasamos tres días encantadores de atardeceres mágicos, respirando paz y descansando en un jardín idílico. Jan y Margarett fueron los anfitriones perfectos; guías atentos, pendientes de todo lo que podríamos necesitar, sugiriendo ideas, lugares e itinerarios. Compartimos risas y experiencias (y algunos vinos). El cottage es acogedor amplio, y totalmente equipado con calidad y cuidado. En resumen, no creo que exista un mejor lugar para relajarse, y sentirse acogido como en familia después de un ajetreado día de visitas.

Mom had such a great time there

  • 5 of 5

Hello Margaret and Jan,

We had a great trip home and it was nice to get back to our lives here. Not that we did not enjoy your country, but it is always good to arrive home again.

Mom had such a great time there, as did Candee and I.

Thanks again for your hospitality; you have a beautiful country and we certainly hope to get back again.

Take care and perhaps we will see you here some day!

A big hugh

Beste belgische Pralinen

  • 5 of 5

Das Leben ist wie eine Pralinenschachtel-Man weiß nie, was man bekommt. Bei der Ankunft hatten wir gemischte Gefühle. Das Gesehene entsprach nicht den Erwartungen. Aber beim ersten Kontakt mit Jan und Magarete waren unsere Zweifel zerstreut und beim Begehen des Feriendomizils waren wir positiv überrascht.Das Vorgefundene entsprach voll und ganz unseren Erwartungen. Das Domizil ist bis ins Detail liebevoll eingerichtet und das großzügig gepflegt angelegte Grundstück bietet viel Raum für Erholung und Entspannung. Bei der Ankunft gab uns Jan viele Empfehlungen zur Erkundung der Umgebung mit der Möglichkeit für Tagesausflüge mit entsprechenden Restaurants, die sehr empfehlenswert sind. Die Tage waren sehr angenehm und Abwechslungsreich. Das Feriendomizil ist uneingeschränkt weiter zu empfehlen. Die Vermieter sind sehr aufgeschlossen und hilfsbereit. Unsere Erwartungen wurden voll und ganz übertroffen.

Un endroit paisible où il fait bon vivre. Le gîte est très calme, très bien entretenu et les hôtes merveilleux.

A la fois discret et de conseils très précieux, notamment pour les endroits où stationner (visite d'Anvers mais à vous de découvrir...)et les parcours à suivre avec leurs lots de surprises.

Géographiquement très bien situé, à une demi heure de Brugges, Anvers, Gand, et la mer...

Nous retournerons très certainement dans ce havre de paix à des jours plus cléments pour profiter de l'extérieur de la maison qui est également magnifique.

Margareth et Jan nous avons juste envie de vous dire : "à plus par là..."

Paradies hinter unscheinbarer Fassade

  • 5 of 5

Die unscheinbaren Häuserfassaden der Wohnstraße nahe der holländischen Grenze lassen kaum erahnen, welches romantische Paradies sich dahinter verbirgt: ein großer Teich mit schönem Baumbewuchs und vielen -sonnigen oder schattigen - idyllischen Veranden, Stegen und Sitz- bzw. Liegeflächen. Das Ferienhaus bietet viel Platz, geschmackvolle Einrichtung, 4-Sterne-Komfort, großes Wohnzimmer und Veranda mit "Seeblick". Der Vermieter kennt sich sehr gut in der Region aus und gibt gerne Tipps zu allen Touri-Fragen: Museen, Restaurants, Stadttouren, Parkplätze und diverse "Geheimtips". Für Besuche zwischen Brügge, Gent, Antwerpen ein idealer Aufenthaltsort für Kleingruppen von 2-4 Personen, für 4-6 sicher - auf Anfrage beim Vermieter- auch möglich (im Wohnzimmer sind zwei große gemütliche Couches). Wir werden mit Sicherheit noch einmal dorthin fahren.

Breskens / Groede
Car: recommended


The village of Assenede is one of the oldest villages in Flanders and near the border with Holland.

The region is ideal for cycling, walking, relaxing and fishing and of course to discover the historical towns of Ghent , Bruges, Antwerp, Damme, Middelburg (NL) 40 km. The Dutch North-sea Coast with the resorts of Breskens, and Knokke 20 min drive by car.

The willow-lined canals, lush green pastures and extensive soft, sandy dunes of Flanders need no introduction; their beauty has been captured for centuries by some of the world's greatest artists. The Meetjesland, however is known only to a discerning few, yet it has much to offer anyone seeking peace and quiet. It's one of those rare corners of Western Europe where time has virtually stood still and man has barely changed the face of nature.

Today it's a land of creeks and polders, tall fields, « sleeping » dikes and old smugglers routes in the north and woodlands in the south which contain beautiful castles and castle farms.

Other Activities: Kano - kayak
