A perfect base for exploring Ypres and the surroundings! On a freezing cold, yet wonderfully sunny weekend, Ramparts House was warm, cosy and very well equipped.

A fantastic stay in Ypres – far too short! We felt very welcomed by the owner and the house was perfect – a real home from home! We enjoyed doing some battlefield walks, as well as attending the Last Post. Very moving. I would certainly recommend this house to others wishing to stay in/visit Ypres.
N.M. and M.M.
Large, comfortable plase to stay, walking distance to the main square and the Menin Gate, either via the square or round the ramparts. All good, probably the most comfortable house we have stayed in, with proper size beds! Bakery on corner. Highly recommend.

Das Ferienhaus hat unsere erwartungen übertroffen! Super!
Der Vermieter hat sich bei der Ankunft viel Zeit genommen um uns notwendiges bezüglich des Hauses und Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten für unseren Urlaub in der Stadt Ypern und Umland, zu vermitteln.
Wir haben uns in dem schönen und sehr sauberen Haus sehr wohl gefühlt.
D. and friends,
We hebben genoten van onze vakantie in uw gezellig Ramparts House! Aan elk detail is gedacht, je hebt het supergezellig ingericht voor jouw gasten.
Van de topligging hebben we gebruik gemaakt om Ieper en omstreken te verkennen. En we hadden niet verwacht dat het zo zalig rustig zou zijn.

Your house has been the perfect base for our pelgrimage to the battlefields of our grandfather and greatuncles. We have also thoroughly enjoyed the charmes of Ypres, the town my grandfather called ‘Wipers’. Thank you so much for your warm hospitality!

We loved staying here and it was perfect for the five of us. What a wonderful, centrally located home, we so appreciate you letting us stay here. Hope to be back some day.
Many thanks for a wonderful long weekend in your beautiful house. The accomodation has exceeded our expectations, the location is perfect for exploring Ieper and the surrounding area.
‘Tour of Flanders’ was a great day out!
We would not hesitate to book again or recommend to friends and family.

Totally agree with all that goes begone – we have been made very welcome and been very comfortable. We don’t really have the vocabulary to describe this “holiday” – but our pilgrimage was fulfilled. Ypres is a great testimony to those who died, including my great uncle.
K., J. , B. and H.
Thank you for a wonderful stay. Many best wishes!
Great place to stay : warm, comfortable and Jerry shared the best places to buy Belgian beer.
Home from home.

Proficiat met de inrichting van de vakantiewoning! We vonden hier alles wat we zochten : rust, gezelligheid, ontspanning …
Voor ons, mensen van de boerebuiten, was het fantastisch om te logeren op wandelafstand van de stad waar zoveel te zien en te beleven valt! Een absolute aanrader!

WOW !!! Thank you so much for letting us use your beautiful house.
I was VERY tempted to stay forever and not return your key!
Absolutely perfect in every way!
You have thought of everything!
We will definitely return!

Un magnifique appartement pour un très bon séjour à Ypres. A fantastic holidayhouse to stay in Ypres and discover this nice city and the surrounding region. We loved our stay at Jerry’s place. Well furnished with quality materials, the house is perfectly located in the city center of Ypres. Jerry was very helpful to find the places to visit.

I messaged Jerry late one evening about a reservation for the next day. he responded promptly and was very helpful in organising our stay even though I know it wasn’t convenient for him to do so. His house is like a work of art inside with great interior decor and attention to detail. There are great facilities, quiet bedrooms with extremely comfortable beds and a super sofa bed in the living room. I think Jerry has thought of everything to make his guests feel at home. It is in a good location in Ypres, on a quiet street just inside the ramparts. Perfect for walking into town or exploring the area. Jerry was a great host. I wish we could have stayed a few more nights and would like to return in the future.
S. and family
Wonderful stay at Jerry’s beautiful house in Ypres. The accommodation is superb, furnishings are of the highest quality, and it is spotlessly clean. Very quiet even tho it is within very easy walking distance of the centre. Even tho our arrival time kept on changing, Jerry was very accommodating. Similarly on our day of departure, he let us leave our luggage til after the 11am departure deadline. He could not have been more helpful.
R. and family
Thank you so much for your kind hospitality. We have enjoyed our visit to Ieper immensely : a beautifull town with so much to see and do. Your house has been our first experience of using a holidayhome and what a high standard you have set! Our only regret is that it is so far from home.

Prachtig verblijf dicht bij het centrum van Ieper, met een “boutique hotel” feeling! Alles is tot in de puntjes verzorgd en zeer comfortabel. Een echte aanrader!
M. and family
Jerry is a very welcoming host who gave us nice tips for our stay in Ieper. The house has a very nice atmosphere with a lot of attention to detail, this makes you feel very much at home. It is also spotless and very luxurious with excellent beds, a great shower and bath an a comfortable garden. Jerry also provides an extensive amount of maps and tourist information. Lovely walk right from his doorstep over the old city fortification to the city centre. The only negative point was that we stayed just one night!
B. and family,
Over the past few years we have stayed in a number of holidayhomes throughout Europe and Jerry’s Ramparts House is our new favourite. Excellent communication and first class amenities, everything is outstanding. There is only 1 problem … we only got to spend 2 nights here!
We will be spreading the word in Canada!
V. and C. H.
Your house was a peaceful respite after dirty Amsterdam. We shall advice our compatriots that one day there is more than enough and to get here for at least 2 days.We loved all the special touches you have added here. It is a lovely place.

Wij hebben echt genoten van ons verblijf in deze gezellige woning. Er is echt aan alles gedacht. Proficiat ! Bedankt voor de goede service.

We stayed here as the last leg of a 3-leg visit to France and Belgium and it was far the best even though it is self catering. A through home from home, tasteful decor, well-equipped and luxurious fittings. The host is wonderful, helpful and friendly. The location is also excellent close enough but far enough away from the crowds to relax. We leave feeling we have lived in Ypres !

We have enjoyed our stay very much. It was a great base for exploring the region.

It was great to come back to Ypres and have more time to enjoy the town. Biking on Kemmelberg, eating mazarinecake, having shrimp croquettes were new to us. All of the WWI sites are interesting, the museum at Passchendaele is excellent. Lots to do and see.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your wonderful house. The location is perfect for exploring this historic region. Your hospitality and the Easter chocolate were much appreciated.

Thank you for your hospitality, guidance, and of course your wonderful house. I regret we could not stay longer to explore the surroundings and settle into the place.
J. from Australia
Having planned a trip to Ypres to tour the area, we were looking for a comfortable place to stay. Jerry has created an amazed holiday home which completely fitted the bill. Nothing was too much for him, even ensuring there was a beer waiting for our arrival. Brilliant!
Excellent séjour. Très belle maison et acceuil très chaleureux. Merci.
Bedankt voor het fijne verblijf in dit zeer gezellige, mooi ingericht en proper huis. Ideaal om er even tussenuit te knijpen met ons 4.
We have stopped in many holiday homes in France, Belgium and Germany over the years and been impressed with many of them.
However, we both agree that this house in Ypres would be listed at the top of them !!
We are already looking forward to our next stay in Ypres Ramparts House.
P. and S.
The house was way more spacious then it appeared on the website. Each room being nice and big. Everything is very good quality and we all commented on how the beds and sofa were really comfortable. Very friendly and helpful host who is always on hand if you need anything. The house was easy to find and parking is available on the street outside of the house. Ypres market square is only 10 minutes walking.
