Very quiet despite being in town centre within walking distance of all attractions. Well equipped, comfortable & cool in hot summer weather. Ideal for exploring coast or inland attractions of West Flanders, such as Bruges, Ghent or Antwerp & Flanders Fields. For British visitors very easy to reach via Zeebrugge, Dunkirk or Calais car ferries. Plenty of in-town attractions, bars & good quality restaurants, museums, Fishermens Quay etc to keep you busy, or just bask on the excellent local beaches. Owner is a great guy-friendly & very helpful. We recommend the apartment and the area very highly.
