We arrived on a Friday by the little local bus... another local helped us get to Van Vliet's - warm welcomes into their peacefilled home. A very welcome cup of tea and chat with our host and hostess. Lots of help with where we could eat - mobile pizza - what a treat!! lovely area, peaceful, beautiful gardens and countryside. Easy walks to villages in the area. - or bike rides. Sunday we prepared to go with our hosts to their church. Unfortunately as we were about to enter the church we received the sad news from Australia that my husband's mother had just died. Our host, took us back to the house so we could make contact with family. Not only that -- during the afternoon, having not eaten they drove us to a nearby town where we enjoyed a very special meal and talked over our many memories. Then Geraldo, kindly returned and took us back to the house. The following morning he also took us to the train station. The joy of both Jaquie and Geraldo was wonderful and their special care at a difficult moment was truly treasured. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH

We had the most perfect 4 night stay at B&B Family Van Vliet in July. Jacqueline and Geraldo were wonderful hosts going above and beyond without being obtrusive. They were incredibly welcoming and friendly with great suggestions of places to visit and see in the local areas. The cycling was fantastic with lots of quiet country cycle paths in the beautiful countryside surrounding Hernen. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful - mostly home produced and organic - there were even fresh flowers from the garden in our rooms! I would fully recommend B&B Family Van Vliet.

This is a fantastic B7B. Located in a quiet residential area, the B&B is clean, comfortable and very very reasonable. The hosts are friendly and very helpful. There was an enormous variety of food offered at breakfast and the hostess encouraged you to pack a lunch to take with you! If you are anywhere near this location, consider staying here, you will not be sorry!! I know we will be booking here again in the very near future!
