feel what it means to live one week in a cosy, cultural city...

Our house is situated 10 min walking to the touristic centre of Bruges, a Unesco World Heritage city (http://www.brugge.be). During the winter you have a lot of winter attractions,shopping facilities and a famous Christmas market.
 Bruges is one of the popular touristic places to visit in Europe, with its interesting museums, romantic canals, historical buildings and many more.  The city has a great range of restaurants, bars, cafés, chocolate- and beershops, cinema, concerthalls, etc..
By train or car you can visit other interesting and historical cities such as Antwerp, Ghent, Brussels, Leuven..
Hiking and cycling is very popular here, there are many easy and flat cycling trails, some go even across the border with Holland (Sluis). We have 2 citybikes available.
Bruges is also close to the coastal cities at the Northsea that offer kite- and windsurfing, beachsailing, golf, casino's, fishing- and sailingports. Along the coastline you can take the tram from the French border (De Panne) to the Dutch border (Knokke).
 Other well-known destinations and cities like Paris, London, Amsterdam, Keulen (Köln) are easy reachable by fast trains : Eurostar, TGV, Thalys, Fyra. (No parking and traffic problems)
 
Our national airport is Brussels Airport approx. 1h10 by train from Brugge and a regional airport is Brussels South (Charleroi) or Ostend is just a half an hour ( flights from spain in summertime)
 
You have a very good acces to motorways for daytrips to the Belgian countryside. (www.dekust.org; www.toerismewesthoek.be; www.brugseommeland.be: the websites have an english , french and deutsch version)
