We just spent a week in Ron & Соnchita's warm and cozy house, as well as Christmas Eve and day! It was wonderful. The house is neat, very comfortable, the rooms are beautifully adorned and designed. Lack of bathrooms inside the rooms is the only downer - but if one takes the whole upstairs, like we did for our family of 5, it's not an issue at all. The house is located in such a way that it's surrounded by water on two sides, and the views from the windows in all the bathrooms are great and very romantic - the channel, barges floating by, a drawbridge... The water is so close you could fish out of the window! The living room where the breakfast is served, and other home cooked meals if you like, is very cozy, full of great furniture and trinkets, with a relaxing fireplace and comfy sofa and chairs in front of it. Ron and Conchita are wonderful people, and I think we came as guests and parted as friends. We are very happy we stayed there, it's such a breath of fresh air after all the hotels, even the best ones, and the area has so much to be explored! Bruges is 10 minutes away and gorgeous, Beach resort Knocke must be fun in summer, and the Dutch village of Sluis, all within 30 mins drive, is a total gem, with great shopping and restaurants!
Overall, 5 out of 5 for a wonderful, warm, romantic and tasty experience - also, a great value for the money! We had the whole wonderful house for a week, with breakfasts and daily room servicing, to ourselves, with Ron and Conchita coming to help when needed and staying in the fantastic garden apartment they have, separately from the main house, and all for the price of two nights for two rooms in a nice hotel!
