Den Haegepreeck è un'incantevole fattoria fiamminga nel villaggio storico di Horebeke, vicino a Oudenarde (8 km) ea Gand (30 km). Immerso nella campagna verdeggiante delle Ardenne fiamminghe, che offre numerose possibilità per escursioni a piedi e in bicicletta. Sarebbe una base ideale da cui esplorare alcune delle parti più interessanti e sconosciute del Belgio. L'affascinante proprietà risale al 1805 ed è restaurato con cura e autenticamente arredato (meno adatto a persone che hanno difficoltà con le scale). La casa dispone di comfort moderni e riscaldamento centralizzato. Nei giorni più freddi potrete godervi indubbiamente momenti di relax accanto alla stufa a legna nell'accogliente soggiorno o a cena nella sala da pranzo altrettanto accogliente e poi un'entusiasmante partita a biliardo. Nei giorni di sole il giardino e la terrazza sono fantastici per gustare una birra locale o un barbecue con la famiglia o gli amici.

This is a really sweet and charming cottage as you can see from the pictures on the website and it was our second visit here so you can tell we think it is lovely. Parking is possible on the driveway so that is very convenient. Ground floor accommodation is excellent with separate kitchen, dinning room, games room (although we did not understand this version of billiards), generous sitting room, shower room and separate toilet. The Garden is delightful and sheltered so we spent a lot of time on the sun loungers (6 provided) and ate most of our meals at the wooden table outside, this would fit six people if necessary. Up the rather steep stairs to the first floor (it is an old farmhouse so get used to them), where there are three generous rooms (access is through the first two rooms to the further room so you need to be on familiar terms with those you are staying with). Only downsides were when the temperature hit 35c it was a bit stuffy to sleep and we were bitten by mosquitoes but that happens at home too! Sabine was delightful when we arrived and made us feel very welcome. All in all thoroughly recommended.
Cosy yet spacious
This is a great little cottage located just a few kms from Oudenaarde. The interior is rustic but very comfortable. The bedrooms are spacious (note access is via a steep ladder, and all three rooms interlink (i.e. you have to walk through the bedrooms to get downstairs). Sabine is very helpful and friendly. The outdoor space is superb - if only the Belgian weather offered more opportunities to use it! There is a corner shop/deli a couple of kms away which sells excellent meat and cheese and fresh bread, as well as a bakery in the centre of St Maria Horebeke.
A wonderful dip into the past
We have spent a wonderful week in this house! When we arrived all was perfect: the house was warm, everything was clean, a good bottle of belgian beer was waiting us...and the Christmas tree was lighting for us :). It is a good place: if you love travelling, you can visit a lot of wonderful cities, all near there (Ghent, Bruges...), if you prefer relax, you can read a book in front of a romantic fireplace. We have brought also our dog, a German Shepard, that was happy like us: he could run in the garden and in the fields near the house. The owners are very kind and friendly.
There are no pictures or explanation of how to access the bedrooms. This could be because the stairs consist of small uneven wooden steps with a rope for support which provides for an almost vertical ascent and alarming descent. The property is quite small downstairs and dated.
The owners are not prepared to make any concession for the fact we booked for a week but stayed only one night, despite having paid the cost of accommodation, a damages deposit and cleaning costs upfront.
Horebeke, set in a remote location, and surrounding district provide very few amenities. Anyone who may think Belgium will provide a similar holiday experience to France will be disappointed as we were.
This cottage has been rent as a holiday Home for more than 17 years (since 1997) and has always had the same stairs. No one has ever made problems about it. People who doubted about this first asked information.
These customers did not seem to have problems with walking or Gatting up the stairs when I was welcoming them at the entrance of the house. They brought 2 dogs which probably couldn't take the iquite steep stairs, which are part of the authenticiteit Flemish house which dates from 1805.
But dogs shouldn't go in the bedrooms of course.
Usually People are really fond of the typical,house and interior and talk about the lovely cottage and garden.
These Guests left the house withouth saying a word to us, although my husband and I were both at Home. We found,out later when we recieven their email. We did not. understatement at all their deception and sudden departure. I had prepared the house myself during 5 before their arrival, had paid attention to all the details , had put fresh flowers in the living room etc, so we really don'tunderstand and regret Of course Belgium is not France...
Lovely cottage - Central location
We stayed for a week over Christmas in order to visit local towns and cities with Christmas Markets. Sabine and family made us feel very welcome indeed. The cottage was lovely and full of character, with open wooden beams in most rooms and huge spaces in the bedrooms - the photos do not do them justice (though they are all linked with only one exit - which did not cause us a problem but may do for others who need more privacy). Downstairs was smaller but ideal for our family of 4 (with 2 small children) and could have fit 2 more adults if needed. Location needs a car ideally but is an hour (or less) from Bruges, Brussels, Tournai, Ghent, Kortrijk and a few other small towns. Lille is also less than a hour away though we did not get time visit, and Antwerp is also reachable in about the same time. We would happily stay here agin if visiting Flanders.

Horebeke è un villaggio nelle Fiandre sudorientali noto per la sua storia; qui vivevano i "Bosgeuzen", i rimanenti protestanti belgi dopo l'Inquisizione spagnola, dal C16th. Da Den Haegepreeck è possibile visitare il centro storico del villaggio protestante, ma ci sono anche molti altri luoghi interessanti e città affascinanti nella zona intorno a Horebeke. Puoi esplorare questo pittoresco circondario a piedi, in bicicletta o in auto e goderti le tipiche birre alla birra belghe e gli incantevoli ristoranti di tutte le categorie nelle immediate vicinanze.
