House in rural village Ruddervoorde with big garden, Belgium

We want to welcome you in our house in the small village Ruddervoorde, near Bruges and the Belgian coast. Our hous has an organic architecture (some people say it's a bit like fairytale house :-)). It's almost a zero energy house (the sun and our wood stock are our partners :-)). We have 4 bedrooms. Three of the four bedrooms have double beds. So, large families are very welcome.
We have a very big garden, where children can have the time of their life :-). We have all necessary stuff for little children.
Except for Bruges and the Belgian coast you can also visit Brussels, Ghent, Antwerp (with the Zoo of Antwerp), Lille, ... And there is a lot to visit about the 100year anniversary of world war I in Ypres and the rest of 'Flanders fields' (http://www.toerisme-ieper.be/en/home.html). And of course what to say about our hunderds of sorts of Belgian bears and Belgian chocolat. We also have bikes available. If you love nature, we have all maps available for walks in nature parks nearby.
