About the property


Situated in the best possible location within the fortifications, the cottage is also the starting point of numerous walks which can go from Malo les bains beach to the magical city of Bruges, but also the 2 caps site and Nausica. You will wish you had more time, but will leave with a different opinion about the north; you will discover the warmth and friendliness of locals, and will taste various local delicacies, may it be meats, patisserie and many different varieties of beers.

Those cottages belongs to the Northern Battle Field association and we have documents and advices about sites of the Great War

Located in town

  • 4 of 5

Located within the city walls, this second floor apartment was well equipped for our stay. A kitchen/living/dining space (open concept) greets you on entry, and a bathroom (shower, sink, toilet and storage) complete this floor. Up a flight of stairs to the bedrooms, the main comprised of a double and a single, the other containing 2 singles. No toilet on this level. Comfortable bed, could open the window (no screens so watch for mosquitos) to get the breezes in, as it tended to be very warm. Wifi good downstairs but tended not to be as strong upstairs. Amenities included large fridge, dishwasher, stove and plenty of dishes,TV (never turned on). Owners extremely helpful in anything you require and a nice gift was left for us on arrival. Key exchange was easy, as was booking and communicating.

Property is close to many walking distance bakeries, groceries, and a couple of restaurants. Better restaurants are available by driving short distances away. You can easily walk around the town and see the sights (and have picnics in various locations). Recommended.

Loved the property! Was perfect for our stay. We were able to walk around and not have to use the car all the time. Eric the owner meet us on arrival and was full of knowledge about Bergues and was very welcoming and helpful. The property itself was clean and inviting. Would definitely recommend it!

Friendly and quiet

  • 5 of 5

In the past we have always driven through this area to holiday somewhere else, and after a week spent in this lovely, friendly walled town, we wish we had stopped off years ago. The town is so interesting, with walks around the top of, and the outside of the town walls, the climb to the top of the belfry, the Sunday morning car boot sale and Monday morning market. Short car journeys take you to the dunes at the coast, the hillier area inland, and the interesting towns of Belgian Flanders. So much to, so much to see. Eric's help was welcome, both before, and on, our arrival. Thanks for an excellent week.

Perfect apartment close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Perfect apartment- clean-all amenities with wi-fi. Close to main little square with plenty of places to eat and drink. Little supermarket just around the corner and a lovely fresh vegetables shop opposite. Bruges is quaint with many interesting other towns to visit close by . Eric was helpful from start to finish with suggestions of places to visit and eat. We enjoyed our stay very much

Situated in the heart of Bergues, very near to the fortifications and with a direct view over the location site of the world famous movie “Bienvenue chez les ch’tis” (“Welcome to the sticks”), you will have an amazing time in Bergues, but will also be able to visit Bruges, see the 2 caps sites or the beaches of the cote d’opale.

You’ll be able to discover the joys of sand yachting on the huge beaches (10 km), visit the breweries where local beers are produced, or have lunch in an estaminet, a typical Flemish cafe.

You can also take a day trip to Lille (40 min by car or an hour by train- frequent connections) and visit the Northern capital and its modern art museum in Villeneuve d’Ascq and the Swimming pool of Roubaix.

To sum it up, a week in the north will allow you to discover the warmth and friendliness of the locals and the typical landscapes of the region; that will make for memories you won’t be ready to forget.

See you soon!

Golf: The Dunkerque golf course is famous for its pleasant course and affordable prices
