House/apartment rental rec for family of 6


We are a family of 6 (2 adults, 4 kids ages 9-13) planning to spend five nights in Belgium in early August, following a week in Paris. A few questions re: Bruges for those that have been:

1. Worth renting a car from Paris and driving, or better to take the train? We're flying back to the US from CDG afterward.

2. Is there enough to keep us occupied in Bruges for 3 days? Assuming we'll do a day trip to Brussels and possibly one other day trip.

3. What's a reputable and recommended rental agency and/or rental owner? Any advice here greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for the help!

Easily enough to do in Bruges for 3 days.

I think if I personally was travelling between Paris and Bruges I would use the train but I am not sure of the costs etc.

Take a look at the holiday flats attached to Hotel Aragon, aragon.be/… they should accomodate your needs?

In these forums in the past I have seen the following mentioned:

Bonobo Apartments


House Asterix


I have been past both of these properties and they are both well located.

Or have a look at this site, I can not vouch for them, but they do have House Asterix on the site.

You can definitely spend 3 days happily in Bruges!

As far as rentals go, from personal experience I can heartily recommend this www.debrugsezwaan.be/index2.php?lang=EN

The owner, whose email is on the site, has another apartment next door to this one as well, just as nice. Very central, beautifully equipped and decorated, and very comfortable. There is also a secure lock-up garage available for an extra cost if you do decide to drive.
