It was wonderful to be completely surrounded by nature. It's great to be able to go back to the cozy enclosure of the yurt every time.

How was the contact with the host?
Joachim is very friendly, concerned and helpful. He remains available and I felt very welcome in his yurt.

Tell us about your experience
Had a really nice winter camping experience, it was freezing, there was snow and ponies grazing in front of the yurt, it couldn't be more authentic. The yurt is cozy and equipped with all essentials. We played cards with candles and our dog thought it was great too.

How was the contact with the host?
Well arranged, Joachim quickly provided all the information needed and Helena asked several times if we needed anything.

Tips for new guests?
Of course we went to Leuven, there was a Christmas market, but the Chartreuse forest is next door and there are very nice walks with wood carvings and poems and energy spots on the way. Also visited Park Abbey for much needed abbey beer!

Very nice quiet nature spot. We had a great time. The duvet was a little too small for the two of us 😉

How was the contact with the host?
Joachim communicates well and welcomed us when we arrived. Explained where everything was and what we could use.
