Françoise and Paul's gite is a piece of paradise in my home country, Belgium. I can't think of a better word than "perfect" to describe our stay! On top of the place being wonderful, we took tons of pictures of the view, Françoise and Paul have thought of everything! They have binders ready for you to find local restaurants, grocery stores, hikes, places of interest and many more things. Staying at Françoise and Paul was way more than a stay! It was a real vacation at friends place! My family and I did not wanted our vacation in Bonlez to end and are looking forward to go back and visit with Françoise and Paul during our next trip to Belgium. I'll make sure to book in advance so we stay there. Thank you so much for your hospitality Françoise and Paul! It was our best vacation in a long time!

Paul and Francoise are very lovely hosts. While they live right next door, they are very respectful of your privacy and don't intrude. Their house and garden are absolutely lovely and very well kept. The views are spectacular! Bear in mind, that the house is far from a larger city. The next bakery or supermarket is about 10 mins away. But if you want a quiet place to escape city life, this is for you.

Response from Françoise & Paul:
Thank you Moritz. We were glad to host your lovely family. We take the opportunity of this review to add for future guests some information about shopping opportunities. The nearest bakeries as well as smaller supermarkets are situated 3 km from our house (5 mins drive). Large supermarkets are to be find 6 km from our house, in Wavre (capital of the province) and Louvain-la-Neuve. Larger cities like Brussels, Leuven and Namur are 30 mins away.

Our stay was very relaxing and just what we needed for a short stay holiday. The hosts were wonderful very helpful in case we needed them, but respected our privacy at the same time. They had thought of everything needed for a family such as kitchen utensils, pool accessories, and also with very precise and clear instructions for the washing machine, dishwasher etc.... My only little concern though was that not many towels were provided for the length of our stay and the size of our family. Apart from raining, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to my friends and family. If you're looking for a relaxing, non invasive and private accommodation than Francoise and Pauls accommodation is the one to book. Hopefully I will see them again in the future. Thank you Francoise and Paul for a lovely stay.

Magnifique!!! Nous avons beaucoup aimée le gite, le jardin, la piscine et sur tout l’amabilité des propriétaires. Ha suido un fin de semana estupendo, la casa es preciosa, y el jardín una maravilla, incluso pudimos bañarnos en la piscina. Hemos disfrutado mucho, a veces no hace falta irse muy lejos de Bruselas para desconectar y estar en medio del campo en un lugar precioso. Además, pudimos hacer una preciosa ruta en bici que sale de la misma puerta del gite. Volveremos seguro!

I am a retired teacher, experienced in French language and culture classes to foreign students, and I love meeting people. As our children grew up and left home, we took the opportunity to renovate part of the house and start welcoming guests in our beautiful countryside. I am also trained as a tourist guide, and love literature, art, gardening, walking, cycling, and ... spoiling my grand-children. Paul, my partner, is fully supporting me.
