Ik was hun allereerste gast en ben zeer tevreden over mijn verblijf.
Prachtige omgeving, leuke restaurantjes in de buurt, ideale uitvaslbasis voor allerlei uitstappen, ...
Rustig en in het groen gelegen heb we het hier erg naar onze zin gehad. Ik kom zeker terug!
Marleen en Jacques zijn fantastische mensen. Zeer gastvrij, heel klantvriendelijk en ze houden van kinderen. Mijn zoontje voelde zich hier onmiddellijk thuis.
Het ontbijt dat je 's ochtends staat te wachten is AF! Zeer verse producten en een erg ruime keuze.
Deze B&B is gewoonweg TOP :-)
Veel plezier aan alle mensen die er hun weekend of vakantie gaan doorbrengen!
