“Chloé and Richard are amazing hosts, they're super helpful and know a lot about the area. A few days before our arrival, we were sent a detailed email with directions of how to get to the place depending on where we were travelling from, along with a link directing us exactly there via Google maps. This was really useful, and we had absolutely no issues in getting there with this information. The route to the place from the train station was really straight forward, and we had no trouble remembering the way during our outings whereby we would take the train to get out of the area. We arrived a little early, and Chloé was still sorting out the bedroom, but this was absolutely no issue and we waited outside. Chloé then showed us around, pointing out various things and showing us where to find instructions on things such as the microwave and coffee press (the couple have compiled really useful notes and documents which are positioned around the rooms to explain different things in both English and French - great as my boyfriend can't speak French and so I didnt need to follow him round explaining!), as well as showing us to the beers and chocolates that had been left in the fridge and on the table for us. Chloé then suggested the different local museums and food places that she knew we'd be interested in and explained a bit about them, and how long we should expect to spend at each one, making it really easy to plan our days. Unfortunately, not long after we arrived, the COVID-19 restrictions for the country were put in place, however Chloé kept us well informed via our inbox of the situation and we were still able to enjoy our visit despite the restrictions. This also meant that when our flight home was cancelled, we were able to understand why, as harsher restrictions were being put into place. Chloé and Richard spoke with us to help us brainstorm how to get home, and were supportive when we decided to leave for the airport at 10pm on the final night. Although it was late, they encouraged us to return should we have issues, and offered for us to stay longer if necessary, which we were extremely grateful for, as it gave us options to fall back on. The place was really lovely and clean, well decorated and and well thought out with everything you could need (small fridge, microwave, kettle, coffee press etc). It's also well located - as mentioned in the description, it's around a 20 min walk from Waterloo station and around 30 from the Braine L'Alleud station, which made it really easy to get into Brussels as well as day trips to Bruges and to Ghent. I would definitely encourage other travellers to take these day trips (especially on the weekends to save some money on train fare) as they really aren't far on the train and well worth the visit! We really enjoyed our stay, and cant wait to come back again thanks to Chloé and Richard :)”
The house is in a residential enclosure but at the same time is close to the highway. We have a bedroom and a private toilet for our guests on the ground floor. Access to the garden is direct from this room. On the 1st floor, the common areas consist of a living / dining room and kitchen. The shared bathroom is upstairs. We have a cat and two children.
“A very convenient location close to the main roads, but quietly removed in the green fields. A very warm welcome, Valentine and Sabri are always available to put you at ease ... very quickly we feel at home as at home. I will go back there.”
