About the property

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.

About Inge

We hope you will enjoy this family holiday home as much as we do.

Why Inge chose Duinbergen

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

What makes this villa unique

Duinbergen and Knokke offer great possibilities for sports, shopping, wining and dining. Or maybe you will want to stay home and simply enjoy the house and its terrace.

A great home for great family holidays

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay during Easter holiday . The house is comfortable ,well equipped and located in a very quiet area . Shops are at walking distance and so is the sea side . We appreciated the bikes ,the cabin on the beach and the garage at 200m distance . The terrace is sunny as from 11 am and well protected from the wind . The rooms are nicely decorated and the shower in the bathroom of the first floor is just great . The dining space is very cosy . We also enjoyed the lunch outside on the terrace .This is not just a common rental house .You feel the passion of the owners to share their second home and to do it differently if you were at home .

On top of that everything is perfectly organised and instructions are very clear .

Lovely Old Villa

  • 4 of 5

Our Family (Grandparents, parents, and kids aged from 1 to 60 odd) stayed in this villa for a week in August. There were 9 of us in total and we had a great time. There is plenty of room, the house was nicely cleaned before we arrived and well supplied with linen and towels. The villa is really well looked after and feels more like someone's house rather just than rental accomodation. The owners make a real effort to make you feel welcome. It has bags of character and is newly decorated. There is a nice patio outside with a table for evening drinks/food, we ate outside on a couple of warm evenings. Massive bath and cool shower on the 1st floor. The beach hut is really useful, saves having to lug a load of stuff to the beach.

I can recommend it.

On the downside, sound travels quite easily from the ground to the first floor. If you're trying to sleep upstairs and people are still partying downstairs then you will have interrupted sleep. The kitchen is smallish.

Bezauberndes Haus in toller Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren eine Woche mit 7 Personen in dem Ferienhaus. Das Haus ist exzellent ausgestattet, man vermisst nichts, auch werden Bettwäsche und Handtücher gestellt. Noch besser ist allerdings die charaktervolle und liebevolle Einrichtung. Bei schönem Wetter findet man zwischen 10 und 19 Uhr immer ein sonniges Plätzchen auf der Terasse.

Die Umgebung ist schön, mit vielen hübschen Häusern. Der Strand ist leider, wie in Belgien üblich, ziemlich verbaut. Ein hervorragender Bäcker, ein toller Fleischer und ein Supermarkt sind gleich um die Ecke. Zum Shoppen nach Knokke fährt man 10 Minuten mit dem Rad. Ausflüge nach Brügge, Gent und Antwerpen werden empfohlen.

Die Vermieter haben weitere Ideen für Aktivitäten und gute Restaurants in einem Ordner zusammengefasst. Fragen an den Vermieter wurden immer zeitnah und sehr freundlich beantwortet.

Das Haus ist tatsächlich etwas hellhörig. Wer etwas empfindlich ist, wählt einfach die Schlafzimmer ganz oben.

Insgesamt fünf Sterne für ein wunderschönes Ferienhaus mit ausgezeichnetem Preis/Leistungs-Verhältnis.

The villa was built in the early 1900s and is completely renovated. It was one of the first villa's that was built in Duinbergen. Duinbergen is a family beach village, part of Knokke-Heist. Most villa's here are built in the traditional white cottage style. It is conveniently close to elegant Knokke and trendy Le Zoute. The natural reserve Het Zwin is only 7 kms away. On the other side of Duinbergen we first reach popular Heist and then Zeebrugge with its seaport.

The villa is ideally located for a mixture of see-side pleasures like walking, biking, beach and visiting the historic towns in Flanders.

The beach is only 300 m away.

Damme is 10 km away.

Brugge is 15 km away.

Brussels is 125 km away.
