Main house

Today Jan, Reagan, Jordan and I went to check out Hoeve Montigny. Of course we wanted to see what we could expect room-wise, and also if we might need to bring any extra kitchen equipment or anything like that. Well, let me tell you: this is the most luxury and complete group accommodation I have ever seen! We were all very impressed and I'm sure it will be a pleasure to stay there and we will be sad to leave...

First of all, the place is huge! All the rooms are very spacious, all bedrooms have an en-suite (private bathroom) and even come with a tv/dvd player (in case you get bored). The main kitchen is very well equipped with a 6-burner gas cooker and oven, a dishwasher, huge fridge freezer and more. Then there is another kitchen in case you need more than that! The whole place is very nicely decorated too, no frills but modern and comfortable.

Camping area

The outdoor area is very pleasant too. Plenty of space, a view of the surrounding fields and the camping area. I can see us spending lots of time here if the weather is good! We had a look around the farm where there were lots of calves to be seen, and the girls had fun on the slide and in the playground. The reception area also has a little shop where you can buy locally made products, and farm fresh eggs too.

There are bikes and boats to rent, and if the weather is good we thought it might be a good idea to rent boats on the Saturday of the meet-up, take them into the village and then go on the walking tour we have planned. Then we can go out onto the lake and stop at a few places before taking the boats back to the accommodation where we will have dinner.

I am sure we will have a great time here!
