Ditch the gift with BungalowNet: a traditional Christmas in a holidaypark

What are the basic ideas of the holiday spirit? We might all agree on the following concepts: giving back, offering hope, good cheer, love, understanding and helping others.

For all of these to take root, all you need is a cozy, calm environment, where spending time with your family will further develop your relationship to an even better level. 

Sometimes, in order to do this, you must break away from the mundane, book a holiday home for your loved ones and enjoy Christmas to its fullest. 

This time, we have collected the coziest, most awesome holiday homes you can actually book and stay at. We are also sharing reviews, because the experience of others with similar needs and desires is one of the best ways to see if something suits our own. 

La Sapinière 

The park lies at the foothills of the Ardennes but isn’t far at all from the German border and is pretty close to the Eifel. The region is famous for its rolling green hills, vast, dense forests, farmlands, rivers and lakes. It is the ideal place for an active holiday, many hikers choosing this spot for a vacation in Luxembourg. 

It being a relatively small country, all of the picturesque villages (Clervaux, Vianden, Diekirch, Echternach) can be easily visited in order to drink in the culture and try out new culinary experiences. 

This year why not ditch the gift and offer your family an experience, the joy of spending time together and reconnecting on a deep level. La Sapinière offers a homey environment, a relaxing atmosphere, a cocoon of calm and the opportunity to truly enjoy Christmas this year.

Went to La Sapiniere for the first time. Easy to travel there. We had a 6-person apartment, and it was a great fit for 1 child and 5 adults. Two bathrooms and 3 bedrooms. Fantastic swimming pool within walking distance, where you can swim for free for 2 hours every day. A nature park lies opposite the pool. From the park you can walk right into the woods and walk into Germany without even realizing it. Beautiful green area with Dinant only 15 kms away. We have enjoyed it very much and are planning to go again next year... and get others excited.  

Nathalie de Roo   

They care about the satisfaction of customers. The price - quality ratio is fair and it is accessible for everyone. I regularly book a house here and it has always been more than okay. You get exactly what you book! 😊🏡👍   

Hanneke Wijdeveld   

We went to La Sapiniere in Luxembourg, beautiful park with great walking environment. The houses were well equipped with all the necessities. You are able to use your own balcony, but you can also make use of the amenities around the cottage. There is a swimming pool just outside the park, where you can swim for free once a day, which can be enjoyed by anyone, young or old. Everything arranged well and it was affordable. Worth repeating the experience, but we would also look for something different at Bungalow.Net. Just in a different environment. We love variation.

We enjoyed our time spent at Vallée les Etoiles this summer 

The chalets are very neat, spacious and are far enough apart so that every chalet has its view and privacy.  

For the dogs there was a surprise ready in the chalet. The park is fully equipped to receive your favorite four-legged friend. The area is ideal for a long walks for discovering the Maas.  

In the morning, the fresh rolls were waiting for us in front of the door, and at night we enjoyed a fresh meal beer the Les Bonne Heuer restaurant with a beautiful view.  

We were able to use the indoor pool daily, we are a fan and would love to discover the other parks as well! 💯 

Saskia Plug-Halfweeg  

We went to Parc Vallée les Etoiles in Blaimont. The park is located in the Ardennesyou’re your peace is guaranteed. Nice wooden houses, firework free, so good for the dogs that are also welcome and a good restaurant. Perfect location for fun trips in the area. 

Tom De Groof   

I would recommend Les Etoiles to everyone.  

Nicely maintained park with lots of activities. The area is perfect for long MTB tours, swimming in the Maas, climbing, historical castles to visit.... They themselves have their own boat pier with trips to Dinant.  

A very active environment, you can’t get bored even for a moment.

10 Belgian beers you've probably never heard of

Belgium is a country where the friendly hospitality of villages and the Burgundian lifestyle are fully celebrated.

However, there are still a few foamy gems known only to the locals. Here are a few recommendations for the next time you are on holiday in this beautiful country.
