Great location
92% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
At barely 5 kilometers from the historical center of Ghent we find, a bit hidden in the back of the garden, this former woodworking workshop. The small building with old industrial attitudes was lovingly transformed into a simple and warm stay for 2 to 4 people. Whether you come alone, as a couple or with your whole family; everyone will immediately feel at home and relaxed. In the summer, take your aperitif under the apple tree, in the winter you can cocoon in an attractive interior.

The space
We are very happy that we have the chance to live on this "small domain". Five years ago we bought this piece of land of 1.000m² with an old house and a workshop on it. We have lived in the workshop for two full years with our two children. In that period the old house was demolished and replaced by a new house with an apartment for the parents. The style is eclectic, because we love a colorful mix of cultures and influences.

Guest access
We share a fairly large garden with our guests. Feel free to just walk up to the chickens. Your children can certainly use the swing and the trampoline. Although not separated from the rest of the garden, the guesthouse has its own "corner" with a garden table and a place where you can possibly make a small fire.

Other things to note
• Cleaning is included in the price.
* You can park your car in front of the cottage (off street parking)
• The following items are always present in the kitchen: pepper, salt, tea, olive oil, kitchen towels, dishwashing liquid, coffee, tea, toast.
• Kitchen appliances: kettle, mixer, blender, microwave, dish washer, gas stove with six burners and oven, refrigerator.
* The bathroom and bedroom are only accesible from the hangar part. So the bathroom and bedroom are outside of the living area.
• The bathroom is equipped with a bathtub; there is no shower.
• The bedroom is not a classic bedroom as you are used to; the mattresses are on a forty centimeter raised floor level as is the case in mountain huts. In this way you actually get one big bed that can be adjusted according to the number of people.
• Bed linnen: choice between duvet for one or two persons.
• We have indicated that there is a gym, and that is true, but it may not be the classic gym that you expect. We have an exercise bike and a cross trainer. These are in the unheated part of the building, which is also spacious enough for all kinds of exercises.
• The open fireplace is really a gas fireplace which shows its beautiful flames.
* There is a BIKE-SHOP nearby our house where you can rent bicycles.
* The bus station to GENT- ZUID is in front of our house, the train station: 5 min walking, the tram to the city of Gent: 15 minutes walking
* At 350 meters from our house (at merelbeke-station) there is a charging station for electric cars

Location

Melle, Vlaanderen, Belgium

We live in a suburban area. It is clear that the center of Ghent is the real attraction, but within walking distance of our house you can find everything. There are several supermarkets, there are cafes, some restaurants, snack bars and a city park at the river Schelde. You can find pharmacists, bakers, butchers, and so on. And all that at a walking distance. But once back home in the guesthouse you feel like you are in a quiet village.
