Just got back home after a brilliant break in Bruges. A wonderful city and the house was simply stunning. It looked perfect from the pictures but when we actually arrived I couldn't believe just how good it was. Located literally a minute walk from Market Square it could not have been in a better location. Chantal was SO easy to deal with throughout the whole booking process. She greeted us at the property and was really helpful in showing us around the house and even suggesting places to eat and drink. The addition of the heated pool and sauna was incredible and made the stay even more relaxing. There is a great sound system hooked up throughout the house which you can just plug your phone into. The house slept seven of us comfortably and each room included it's own en suite bathroom and rain shower. This was the perfect stay and the nicest house I've stayed in since using Owners Direct, we're already looking for an excuse to come back next year. Thank you Chantal!

Stunning Property, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We recently came back from a stay at Chantal's gorgeous home. I wish I could give the property (and Chantal) six stars. It exceeded my expectations.

The property was immaculate and decorated beautifully. Wonderful pool and backyard space which we used extensively. The house was right in the center of Bruges and had a ton of restaurants and bars within walking distance. I doubt there is a better property in Bruges. Highly recommended.

Stunning house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Feel bad it has taken me a year to write this but had the most amazing stay at Calyx House with my husband, 2 kids and my parents. We all loved the house. The kids enjoyed the pool and garden and the location made it perfect for a city break with children as only a few mind walk to the main square. Chantal was delightful.. a perfect host.. gave us city guides, available at all times to answer any questions and the house had everything you needed and more. Probably the most organised kitchen we've ever seen in a holiday property! Couldn't recommend it enough! A year on and I still want to go back ☺

Lovely house in the heart of Bruges

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay here at the end of July 2015 - a very luxurious house, the kids loved the pool, TVs and sound system, all the facilities are all excellent. Just a minute's walk from the main square, you couldn't be any closer to the town centre. Chantal greeted as and was very helpful. I couldn't recommend this place more highly.

Wonderful house, great location, beautiful city.

  • 5 of 5

It's easy to see why all reviews give 5 stars. Indeed it should have 6 stars! This superbly located property allows you to walk within Bruges without needing your car which is safely in the garage. The garden is a delight, with direct views of the Belfry so you hear the lovely carillon. With a pool and sauna, modern sound system, wifi, and modern fun sculptures, large TV in the room, the property has everything you could want and more. The owners gave us a warm welcome and provided guide books and maps.

Bruges is a splendid city with so much to see and do. Restaurants are very good - try Park, au Petit Grand and the beer experts Cambrinus, all within a few minutes stroll of the house. Take the boat trip around the canals, earlier in the morning when it's quieter and don't the Belfry, Basilica and Beguine nunnery and so much more. You will need plenty of memory cards for your camera.

We arranged a full day First World War battlefields and memorials tour which was excellent and moving, more so since we could locate the memorial to a relative.

The property and Bruges make a wonderful combination. Highly recommended.

Ferien wie im Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Falls sie eine Ruheoase in Brügge suchen, dass sind sie hier absolut richtig. Das Haus sieht genau so aus wie auf den Bildern, ist also sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. die Zimmer sind grosszügig und alle mit eigenem Bad, die Bette sehr bequem. Pool und Innengarten erlauben es sich mitten in der Stadt zurückzuziehen. Obwohl das Haus sehr zentral gelegen ist, ist die Lage sehr ruhig und wir konnten problemlos mit offenen Fenster schlafen.

Wenige Schritte vor der Haustür ist der Marktplatz und in unmittelbarer Nähe gibt es viele nette Restaurants, ein brasilianisches Café und eine Bäckerei. Was will man mehr?

Von Brügge aus ist man rasch in Antwerpen, an der Küste oder auch in Brüssel, alles eine Reise wert.
