The location of this holiday home in Bruges is ideal. It’s only a 15 minutes walk into Brugge. On your way to the city center, you will find a supermarket, about 10 minutes walk. For us, it was a perfect location from where we could easily explore Bruges. The neighborhood is quiet and feels local. If you are more a party animal and like to overnight close to mature music clubs and raging discos, than this place would be too isolated.

There are some nice shops, cafes, and restaurants in the neighborhood; Cantine Copine (100 meters), Zuid 55 (800 meters), a laundry place (500 meters) and bakery Sint Paulus – butcher – cheese (800 meters). The Railway station Sint Pieters is located 500 meters from the holiday home.

The front door has a number code which we were informed about on arrival, so no worries that you will lose your key. If possible the hosts try to welcome you personally. They were fantastic and looked after us superbly. Nothing was too much trouble and they went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect.

If you would like to discover the area, cycling is possible in the surroundings and the hosts can help arrange a bicycle.

The breakfast was amazing! Almost as great as a hotel breakfast buffet! Every day the hosts provided fresh cold cuts in the fridge and fresh bread and breakfast products in the corridor by the sauna. The spacious fridge also contained some products such as water, milk, soft drinks, and a locally brewed “Brugse Zot”. Plenty of fruits were also available.
