“Perfect in every way!” Myself and 8 other friends, all aged between 30-40 stayed at Catherine's beautiful big house for a weekend to explore Bruges. We could not recommend it more! We all had such a fabulous time, and Catherine could not have been any more accommodating. It was clean, spacious, plenty of wardrobe space, super comfortable beds and excellently located. It has so much character and is a mix match of old and new. It's stylishly decorated too. The 5th bedroom was in the dining room attached to the kitchen with no door which we didn't like so some people shared upstairs. For families; this wouldn't be a problem at all. There a 2 good sized bathrooms both with lovely, hot showers. The stairs are very steep, so it might not be so suitable for somebody with mobility problems but we found them to be fine. All the linen was fresh, and towels were provided too. The bedrooms are all well sized, and the one at the front of the house is huge! Outside there is a seating area that is not overlooked by anyone (the house at the back is derelict). The kitchen was really well equipped and had a lot of the basics in there for us to use. For anything that wasn't there, there is a Carte Fore supermarket a 5-10 minute walk away where we stocked up on milk, eggs, bread etc. Before we arrived I worried that there may not be enough keys for everyone in our party to come and go as they please, but this was not a problem as access to the house is done via a code system into a computer that operates the door. Location wise, it's all pretty much all there on your doorstep! It takes less than 10 minutes to get to the main square where the Belfry Tower is situated, and everything branches off from there really depending on what direction you want to head in. The house itself is situated on a really quiet street. This house is highly recommended, and we will definitely be coming to stay again! We had a brilliant weekend. Thankyou Catherine for your hospitality!
“Comfortable home” Martine, the owner, welcomed us at Opaal to give us the keys. I stayed with my husband and 13 year old son for 4 nights. The house is very comfortable and has everything you need. Opaal is in a convenient location to visit the sights of Bruges on foot. Many restaurants and cafes nearby too. I definitely recommend a stay here.
