My wife and I both come from scouting backgrounds and camping is in our blood.
Usually we are on the road with an off-road vehicle equipped with a roof tent.
At home and abroad we look for places of peace and quiet with respect for nature!

Dear Tom and family
Nice to read that you enjoyed your stay in the Liesjesbos.
Mosquitoes are everywhere this summer
When we camp we solve the lack of electricity with a solar panel, maybe a tip

Nice camping spot.
You have everything you need there.
We were warned about the mosquitoes.
We had therefore taken our precautions, but this was a very aggressive species and were actually constantly attacked.
Too bad this ruined the stay a bit.

How was the contact with the host?
Good communication

Dear Bart
Thank you for the review. Nice to read that the stay was good.
A shame about the mosquitoes, but they are numerous and teasing everywhere, that's what you get with those humid summers ;-)

Beautiful, quiet and well-kept place a short distance from the small Nete! Perfect for our canoe trip from Retie to Herentals. All requested information was communicated clearly, quickly and in a friendly manner. Due to the weather conditions we unfortunately only stayed 1 instead of 3 nights. We will definitely come back here for a longer stay!

How was the contact with the host?
Perfect. All our additional questions were answered kindly and quickly.

Tips for new guests?

Nice place, super located! Completely alone in the green, and yet against the city!

How was the contact with the host?
Very correct, and when we arrived there was a local beer, sweets and a lot of tourist brochures in a folder ready, very pleasant arrival!

We arrived and saw a beautiful birch avenue. We felt in the De Columbus program. A narrow lane and then an idyllic clearing in a forest. Beautiful! A swing, campfire pit and a nice welcome drink and snack completed the setting. And don't forget a real toilet! We enjoyed the hiking trails nearby, very close by the way! And the play forest, cafeteria at the Kleine Nete... really a place to remember. Downside: the mosquitoes. Even though the host had warned us, I went home full of red balls, but very satisfied ;-)

How was the contact with the host?
Fine. Clear message with information about how to get to the domain.

Tips for new guests?
Anti-mosquito material

"Very nice hidden camping spot and yet close to the center with shops, cafe, restaurants... It is unbelievable how quiet it really is in this place, it is wonderful to stay there!!
Close to hiking and cycling nodes to immediately explore the Nete and the surrounding forests.
Friendly owners who came to say hello and are easily accessible for questions / problems.
Highly recommended (but don't forget your tricks against the mosquitoes in the season 😉)!!

Stars: a big 4/5! That other point the mosquitoes ate "

Very pleasant, quiet place in the green. Friendly and helpful owners who live nearby. Even after a lot of rain, the domain was not soggy. Play forest and playground nearby. Recommended.
