1 of 29
Cottage -
4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Braine-Le-Chateau, Walloon Brabant Province, Wallonia

Les Cinq Saules is a beautiful, stylishly furnished 220 sqm. cottage dating back to the early 20th century. It is nestled in a magnificent, fully fenced 3000 sqm. garden, featuring a natural pond surrounded by ancient willows, which give the cottage its name. Renovated to high standards in 2007 and extended in 2015, the cottage sleeps eight (+ one baby cot). Free wifi. Many of the country's major tourist sites are within easy reach from the cottage. Cosmopolitan Brussels, the historic Flemish cities of Antwerp, Ghent, Leuven, Bruges, Ypres and Mechelen, or the abbeys, chateaus and unspoilt nature of Wallonia can all be enjoyed while returning home comfortably to the cottage on the same day. In addition, the cottage is ideally located for an 'active' holiday, including trekking, cycling, golfing, and horseriding.

About the neighborhood
'Les Cinq Saules' is situated on the outskirts of the medieval village of Braine-le-Chateau, which is nestled in the green hills of 'Le Roman Pais'. This rural region, just 25 km south-east of Brussels, offers a wide range of possibilities for holiday makers, including touristic and gastronomic routes, many hiking and cycling trails, and excellent sports facilities (golf, tennis, horseback riding, swimming, ...). Lovers of art and history will enjoy the region's abbeys, churches, castles, mills and museums, while children will love the region's activity and adventure parks. Not to be missed is the historic site of Waterloo, where Napoleon was defeated by the allied forces in 1815.
