It was in an amazing location (right above a mall), and it was so thoughtfully-decorated! When we came in, we didn’t have handsoap and body gel, but once we made this known to Pauline, she hand-delivered these items to us in a timely manner. It was unfortunate we couldn’t stay longer, but the short experience we had was great! Tip: make sure you have the correct location because (Hidden by Airbnb) Maps might take you to a place on the other side of Lille.” – Irene

We were 15 adults, singles and couples as well as a baby and there was enough space in the house for everyone. The different levels with chill out, bar and dining room provide a place for everyone to relax. We especially liked the kitchen, which is huge and you manage to cook without problems for many hungry people. Not to forget the sauna and the Jacuzzi. To admire the sky in the warm water should not be missed. Liz was there before and during my stay for my many questions and always answered immediately. Thanks a lot for letting us stay in your beautiful chalet, we want to come back soon.” – Lucia
