Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Knokke - Les Courlis
5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8.
The two-under-one-roof villa was built in 1912 and is on the list of heritage of Flanders. It is built in a very typical part of Duinbergen, Knokke-Heist. The villa has been fully renovated with respect for it's original architecture. The villa is south oriented. The villa is surrounded by a terrace that allows you to enjoy the sun away from the crowds. The self-catering villa is the ideal setting for family beach holidays.
A closed private garage is at your disposal for the time of your stay (year around). Free wireless internet access.
On the beach, at 300m from the house, you can use the private beach hut for the time of your stay (April-September). The hut (cabine) is equipped with beach chairs and beach toys. It is very useful with children and/or surfboards. Perfect to enjoy your corner of the beach.
Great outdoor activities are: enjoying the beach, walking and running along the shore and biking. 4 bikes are at your disposal. Excellent bike destinations are the nice polder villages like Damme, Lissewege and even Brugge. Going to Holland (Cadzand) via the natural reserve 'Het Zwin' by bike is a favorite destination of our children.
Excellent bakery, butcher, fish shop, general groceries at walking distance. For foodies there are many possibilities. You can buy fresh fish at one of the harbor shops in Zeebrugge and enjoy cooking a treat for your party. Or you can hop in one of the excellent shops nearby (300m) and buy 'traiteur' meals and enjoy it in the quiet settings of the house and terrace.
Wining and dining: there is a good choice at walking distance, from 2 star restaurants to excellent tearooms and bars. Information for eating out in Knokke, Brugge, Damme, Cadzand … is available in the house
For shopaholics the choice is vast. Shopping with capital S in Knokke and Le Zoute. Shopping in Brugge is also a real treat. By train you reach Brugge in 20 minutes.
And of course sightseeing! Brugge, Gent, Antwerpen and Brussels deserve a visit. Visiting the famous art cities of Flanders can be easily done by train (500 m to train station, 2 trains per hour). Less known small treasures like Damme, Lissewege... are very nice bike destinations through the polders.

We fell in love with this charming 'old lady' in need of a face lift. For her 100th birthday we managed to have her completely renovated. The house has ever since given us and our guests a warm welcome and a lot of great memories.
