The whole concept is around spending quality time together, and enjoying the little things as a family. Cook dinner on an outdoor barbecue, play in the woods and relax. The hosts provide detailed information and local hidden gem tips about the region and cabin for guests on arrival.

Take time to play together without electronic distractions, with back-to-nature games, a campfire and barbecue. There is plenty of space to run and play in the fields around the cabin. A crib is available on request; there are 2 bedrooms plus a sofa bed in the living space. A crib and high chair are available on request; wooden toys and games provided.

Style Notes

Eco-living. This minimalist cabin is full of design details and special touches. Picture windows look out on to a peaceful rural landscape, while luxury touches make the cabin a cut above. We love the clever storage solutions, along with the plants, bean bag and wood-burning stove. It’s a unique, stylish and eco-friendly retreat.

We are a young family with two cute little boys of 2 and 4 years old. During our holidays we love to travel to authentic and family-friendly places where there is preferably ... lots of sun and/or snow ... unspoiled nature and wide panoramas ... a fascinating culture and good authentic food ... or a combination of all :)

Belgium, Europe

The land of Tintin

This is the land of teenage detective Tintin, a country with grand cobbled Medieval marketplaces, cycling trails through flat landscapes studded with windmills and those famous chocolates. Antwerp has cutting edge fashion and ultra modern art galleries while Bruges is a beautiful place for a boat trip beside the swans. Brussels is the seat of the European Parliament and has charm, cobbles and a comic-strip walk behind the grey suits. There are water parks, museums, caves and gardens to visit, plus memorials in the fields of Flanders where World War I took place. Don’t believe anyone who tells you that Belgium is boring.
