Well for those who would like to stay at Marianne and Louis’
bed and breakfast there are a lot of places to visit in the
First of all you have Bruges, at fifteen kilometres
from Maldegem. If you surf on the web you will be
able to find thousands of pictures which will give you an
idea of what Bruges means in Flanders. It’s a very small
Flemish medieval city with lots of places to visit. Museums,
cathedrals, other buildings, belfry, town hall. Hundreds
small restaurants, and pubs.
People have always enjoyed staying here. Not fr from Bruges
you have Damme (Jacques Brel) and Lissewege, the white
village where you can have a stroll in the morning and lunch
or in the evening.
Another place of interest are the many cities along the
North Sea – you can start from Knokke Zoute,
residence of the richest people of Belgium and finish at
Ostend, the Queen of all the cities at the coast. If you
take a tram in front of the station of Knokke you pay 5
euros and you can do all the cities you like to visit.
Blankenberge, De Panne, Duinbergen, Heist, Zeebrugge
(port in the sea) are worth visiting.
For an evening excursion or dinner you are fifteen
kilometres from a medieval Dutch city, Sluis, in the
Netherlands. Very peculiar city totally different from the
Belgian cities and so near.
For those who are planning a longer stay we are 40 minutes
from Ghent by car, another big medieval university
city, fifty minutes from Antwerp our main port and
huge medieval cosmopolitan centre and one hour from the
capital of Belgium, Brussels.
