In following Thérèse and Bart around their ultra-modern, newly-built apartment I managed to fill all the white space I allow myself for notes and I cannot read the tiny scrawl that followed! This is a measure of how much there was to enthuse over. In a couple of broad statements I will say that your hosts could not care more enthusiastically about their guests.....

.... And that every practical detail of their B&B has been minutely considered from your point of view… and only the highest quality has been sought in all things. All is super-modern, with the large, open living space drawing your eye - and your entire body - out to the balcony for the city view. There is much solid wood, pebbles in pot plants, marble in bathrooms, thick glass showers, mirrors, modern art, warm simple colours, perfect white linen on new beds. Mod cons include an open-plan kitchen with a coffee-maker and free juice, there’s a Mac for guest use (Airport available throughout the apartment for those that understand) and guests have access to a heated swimming pool, security-swiper for the lift, underground parking, CD player, laundry… I mean, the list is endless. It is a beautifully decorated, slick, well-organised but always homely flat. Thérèse and Bart, who were once Belgians (French, German, Flemish/Dutch spoken), live in the adjacent apartment with Khalifa, their aristocratic and well-mannered saluki, and will make absolutely certain you are well looked after. Bart also offers a cheery airport pickup service.
