Town Centre but quiet, well situated flat, handy for beach, shops, trains, buses, & Coastal Tramway

5 of 5
Well equipped, roomy one bedroom flat, with parking (usually payable) in basement or across the road as required. 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.
