We stayed there for 3 nights in order to visit the Christmas Market.
The accommodation is very central and only minutes walk to the main square. It is extremely comfortable with excellent amenities. The booking process was simple and the owners very responsive to messages prior to our visit. We were very grateful for the offer of a pick from the bus station when we arrived from Charleroi.
The house was rented for a few days stay in Bruges. It is an older property that has been creatively modernised to offer three bedrooms, bathroom and a good sized kitchen/living room. We found getting to the property easy, from the out of town railway station, using the frequent bus service. There is even a bus stop at the end of the road.
Martine greeted us when we arrived and gave useful hints on what to see in Bruges and provided a good selection of tourist literature.
During the few days we stayed at the house we found it to be quite and have all the ammenities we wanted and everything worked! A unexpected bonus was that we discovered the TV system had BBC1 and BBC2 which meant my wife could keep up with all her favourite TV soaps while on holiday!
Bruges is well worth a visit with its history, museums, central square and large numbers of restaurants.
Clean spacious house for us of two adults 3 children, two of which are teenagers and really needed the wifi
Everything close by within walking distance to explore the beautiful city of Brugge,
Train station about 15 mins walk where it's easy to explore surrounding areas and city's.
Really enjoyed our stay at opaal and would highly recommend.
Thank you Martine.
Absolutely great place. The outside space made it perfect do not often see an outside space in Europe. Everything was fantastic.
The house is very well kept and in a great location to explore the city. The house easily accommodated 4 people and was very private and quiet. Check in and out was easy. We would have liked a few fans when the weather unexpectedly reached over 90F but when the only trouble is that the weather was unseasonably nice it's hard to complain.
Martine's apartment is in a great location , close to the centre, supermarkets and public transport.
It is comfortable, very clean,with a well equipped kitchen, warm and quiet.
Martine is very helpful with advice and good communication.
My only slight disappointment is with that the hot water system for showers only heats at night - so on arrival - no hot water until morning and if you use it all in the morning ( which we 3 did everyday ) that's it .
Also there is no washing machine -although the laundromat is very close by .
Martine does inform you on those above issues when she briefs you on arrival .
Overall we really enjoyed our stay in Bruges - gorgeous city and did a day trip to Gent and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Martine's apartment.
Opaal holiday house is the perfect place to stay to enjoy the many wonders of Bruges.
Martine is the perfect host.
Recommend hiring bikes to see some of the surroundings beyond the old town!
