We only stayed one night but enough to see that Bloomestate deserves its high TA rating. Unique design features and decor with authentic Dutch flair and an excellent breakfast. Beautiful gardens and pool produces a tranquil and peaceful stay.

After our arrival, Carla welcomed us with a welcome drink in the lounge and a small tour over their beautiful estate. The room was immaculate: a huge, stylish and modern room, with a great view on the garden and the mountains, an iPod docking station, Barcelona-chairs, a well-filled minibar and a huge bathroom with bath and rain shower. Breakfast is... More

With their lovely breakfast, nice pool and amazing jacuzzi (with a glass of wine in the evening) its a perfect place to stay for a couple of days. Their... More
