Welcome in or Lodge situated in the hart of the Flemisch Ardens.
Christian a toujours été très réactif pour nous donner tous les renseignements dont nous avions besoin avant notre arrivée. Lui et son épouse nous ont réservé un accueil très chaleureux et nous avons trouvé un logis parfaitement agencé et très confortable qui a parfaitement convenu à la tranquillité et la sérénité dont nous avions besoin pour préparer les affaires ayant motivé notre déplacement. A recommander sans hésitation... et nous avons eu en prime en cadeau une bouteille de vin blanc de la cuvée du propriétaire !
Christian and his wife were fantastic hosts, they were welcoming and friendly and could not have done more to make us feel welcome! They gave us great information about the local area and even phoned and booked us a local brewery tour and gave us a lift as well as showing us the process of wine making in their beautiful vineyard. The area is lovely and has lots of villages and the town of Oudenaarrde is only about 15 minutes away by car. It would be excellent for both cycling and there are also some lovely walks nearby. We would highly recommend Cleensyde as a base for touring by car also, the outdoor swimming pool was great, the bed was very nice and we had all we could possibly need for a relaxing and comfortable stay. Do not look any further for accommodation you will be delighted to stay here!
We have just returned from our trip to Belgium and our hosts Catherine and Christian made us feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was very cosy and had everything we needed, also being able to swim in the hosts natural swimming pool was a great bonus. Christian gave us a tour of his vineyard and Catherine her amazing garden all these things added to make our holiday special and a bit different. It felt more like staying with friends rather than with people we'd only just met.
Christian and Catherine were such lovely, kind and generous hosts. Their communication before we arrived was superb and we felt like family from the moment we arrived. We came to Flanders to ride the Tour of Flanders by bike and Christian brought us and our bikes to the start and picked us up at the finish. He also had all prepared all the necessary information about the times and locations related to the race and had helpful recommendations for spectating the professional racers the following day. The little house next to their own house is just perfect--beautiful, clean, comfortable and cozy. Chris and Catherine were very flexible about check-in and -out times, allowing us to stay until 17:00 to finish watching the race on television. I could not recommend Resort Cleensyde any higher! Go go go!
