We had the please of being guests in this excellent establishment for three nights in April 2012. We were welcomed by both Pascal and Jean-Yves, in a warm and friendly fashion. Despite arriving an hour early, our room was ready. We were offered complimentary refreshments on arrival.
The standard of cleanliness was immediately apparent, as was the attention to detail in the accommodation. All the usual extras were provided, including a hair dryer and tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Towels were available in abundance and ample supplies of soap and shampoo were provided in the bathroom.
Breakfast was available from 7am to 10am each morning. Fresh home baked wholemeal bread, croissants and rolls were provided every morning, in addition to at least two home baked sweet loaves or pastries. We had breakfast three times and enjoyed; Tarte aux Myrtilles, Tarte au sucre, Pain au Speculoos, and several others. Also provided were two local cheeses, two home made preserves, cereals, dried fruit, a selection of Twingings Teas, Coffee and hot Chocolate. Our breakfast was served by the proprietors with always a smile and a friendly good morning greeting. We needed to leave early on the final day of our stay, and Jean-Yves had breakfast ready to serve by 6.30am.
It is clear that the proprietors have a passion and a sense of pride in making their guests comfortable. It is this and the quality of their establishment that makes Domaine de La Frenaie a "MUST STAY" in the area. It is within easy commuting distance of Lille and Bruxelles, and is well situated for motorways and main roads.
There is private secured parking and a lovely garden which was a joy to observe. There are insufficient superlatives to describe our stay at this charming establishment.
