Marianne and Louis will welcome you in their Bed and breakfast in Maldegem near Bruges fifteen kilometres from Bruges or Damme by car, from the coast of the North sea Knokke-Heist, from Sluis (the Netherlands), 40 minutes from the medieval University City of Ghent, one hour from the main port Antwerp and the capital Brussels.
Maldegem is the key for a short or longer cheaper stay in the Dutch speaking part of Belgium.
Marianne en Louis have been teachers of languages and Economics, they have studied some German, Italian and Russian as a hobby during their free time and they have always liked to look after people
After having raised four sons who left the house at due time, they have looked after the two grannies for more than five years and at their retirement they decided to welcome people from all over the world.
They had experienced bed and breakfast in Britain, France, Canada, the Netherlands and the USA during their long school holidays and they have enjoyed doing bed and breakfast for a few years now.
Meeting people in their home from all parts of the world, has widened their world and have made them more active than ever.
And most of all, they have enjoyed the respect, the gratitude, the helpful hand, the friendship of all those wonderful people who loved living in a private home for a while, with their children or their parents.
Direct contact with the local inhabitants has become quite popular in this part of the world. Flanders is very small and most visitors enjoyed being able to visit so many medieval parts of the country in such a short time.
Both Marianne and Louis will never retire as long as they are able to welcome and be useful to other people who respect them and make life worth living.
The whole project was enthusiastically backend by their oldest son Michael who created a website in different languages. They have two flats in the center of the village, in a small building next to the post office. They can offer three bedrooms with private bathroom.
