Summary:

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.

Further details indoors:

The cottage has been thoroughly restored in 2007 and extended in 2015, and yet retains the original look and feel of the traditional country houses of the region. Les Cinq Saules has been carefully equipped and furnished with quality products by the owners, who often come and stay. The cottage has a spacious sitting room, beautifully furnished with a large sofa, fitted curtains and wall-to-wall carpet, all in soft, matching colours. A traditional wood burning stove, set in a beautifully tiled hearth, complements the central heating system and creates a cosy atmosphere. The dining area features a extendable solid wood table, as well as a number of carefully selected drawings and paintings. All rooms feature open views to the garden. There is cable television (flat screen). A CD-player and a selection of books (in English, Dutch and French), maps and tourist information, and games are provided. Guests are welcome to use our high chair, wooden play pen, as well as some toys for small children.

The cottage sleeps eight – two on the sofa bed on the ground floor, and on the first floor, under the roof, two in the luxury box-spring, two in a double bed and two in single beds. There is ample wardrobe space in the bedrooms on the first floor. In addition, the ground floor bedroom holds a lovely baby cot. All beds have high-quality mattresses, lush duvets and fresh, elegant bed linen to guarantee a peaceful and restful sleep. All bedrooms feature cosy bedside lamps, while the bedroom on the ground floor also has a radio/alarm clock.

The lovely country kitchen has three large windows overlooking the garden and pond. High quality, built-in equipment is installed, from the ceramic hob with extractor fan and hot air oven with grill to the dishwasher and large fridge/freezer. Crockery and cutlery comprising of six place settings are supplied, along with everything one might possibly need in a luxury kitchen, including a microwave, toaster, croque monsieur maker, juice squeezer, water boiler and coffee maker with thermos jar. Table cloths, dish towels and dish rags are provided. An open arched wall separates a breakfast bar with two stools from the dining room.

There are two bathrooms and one toilet room (with bidet). The ground floor bathroom features a sink, bath tub and walk-in shower, while the bathroom on the first floor has a sink, a large walk-in shower, a toilet and bidet. The utility/laundry room, next to the ground floor bathroom, houses the washing machine, heater and boiler, as well as as an ironing board and iron. Towels, a hairdryer and a baby bath are provided. A folding drying rack and pegs are available.

For families with children we provide a baby bath tub, a baby changing cushion, a high chair, a lovely baby cot in the downstairs bedroom, a baby monitor, a baby play pen and baby/toddler toys (both for indoor and outdoor use).

Further details outdoors:

Les Cinq Saules is nestled in a magnificent, fully fenced 3000 sqm garden, featuring a natural pond surrounded by ancient willows, which give the cottage its name. Sitting on the large terrace, you can enjoy the privacy and tranquility of the cottage, while our younger guests can play in the sand box or on the swing and wooden tower. Garden chairs, umbrella and BBQ are provided. Covered, on-site parking is available.

Les Cinq Saules was built on the site of the spring of the Ermitage, a small stream winding its way through the hills of the "Roman Païs"to join the Hain, one of the region's larger rivers. The valley of the Ermitage was classified as a "site of great biological interest" by the regional authorities. The cottage is surrounded by woods and farmland, and has direct access to a number of foot and bike trails.

Practical details:

There is no telephone for use inside the cottage - mobile phones will be able to get a signal in and around the cottage. Free wifi.

"Les Cinq Saules" is strictly no smoking. However, feel free to smoke outside whilst admiring the garden.

We accept well behaved pets as long as owners are willing to accept a few basic rules:

- Keep your dogs in the entry hall and kitchen only (to protect our carpet).

- Do not leave your pets unattended in the cottage.

Our garden is dog-proof fenced (our fence is 1.2 m high all around). Your dog may enjoy a swim in our pond! We provide a maxi-size dog basket.

The Wallonia region

"Les Cinq Saules" is located in the Belgian province of Brabant Walloon. It lies 25 km south-east of the nation's - and Europe's - bustling capital, Brussels. 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.

Braine-Le-Chateau

"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.
