As a seminal birthday present, my wife and I had been planning to ride and watch the Tour of Flanders for some time. Having never been to that part of the world, the logistics were not too bad apart from the right accommodation to suit the occasion. Cimbarsaca was PERFECT.
A 19th C farmhouse that has been beautifully renovated in a contemporary manner, Cimbarsaca is located in the quiet village of Semmerzake, about 10 km from Oudenaarde, the finish of the race, it provided an idyllic and peaceful backdrop.
We could not fault the hospitality of the Vandenmeersschauts, Cimbarsaca's owners. Each morning there was an immaculate continental breakfast (just right for a day on the Flandrian cobbles!) and Luce, the hostess, could not do enough to make sure that our stay was perfect including amending breakfast times and giving us all the details of the local restaurants (which were very good).
Cimbarsaca will be a definite for us for future visits to Flanders and it is a highly recommended for those that want a boutique elegance set amongst the peace of the Flandrian countryside but within easy reach of the big towns and cities.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Cimbarsaca is a charming B&B located between Ghent and Oudenaarde. When you leave the N60 at the Eke-Nazareth intersection and you cross the bridge over the river Scheldt on the winding road, you arrive at the peaceful river village of Semmerzake. At the end of the road, on the corner, you’ll find a tastily renovated 19th century bourgeois house, witness to the history of a mayor’s family. Through the attractive entry hall, you’ll enter an oasis of calm. De-stressing and just enjoying life in style is easy in lovely Cimbarsaca, where the client is at the centre of all attentions. Cimbarsaca is the perfect starting point for those who want to discover the Flemish Ardennes and its rich past. Many typical villages and their beautiful natural environments are within easy walking or biking distance. Another asset of our B&B: its capacity to host seminars, meetings and training classes, which can take place much more smoothly when inspired by the serenity of the garden view. Likewise, a refined business lunch makes decisions easier to take, and favours agreement. Hope to meet you very soon! Your hostess Luce ... more less
