About our home

On the 5th floor you will find my totally new renovated apartement with all modern comfort. It is small, but still spacious, cosy and very practical. There are big windows so there is a lot of light. You will have a wonderful view overlooking Ghent on the spacious, sunny terrace.

The apartement is in a save and quite neighbourhood.

It is a great location for visiting Ghent by foot.
I have also 2 bikes you can use.

Train station (Dampoort) is a 10 min walk.
There are several bus stops in my street.

Why choose Ghent for a weekend trip?
Vibrant Ghent offers a fascinating cultural cocktail brimming with trendy, modern urban life. Ghent is a city where people enjoy life: a chilled-out place where anything goes and a city that feels human. Its friendly, welcoming people love the good life. Don’t miss the chance to admire the world-famous masterpiece—the Mystic Lamb by the Van Eyck brothers—during your weekend trip.
Lonely planet:
Asking citizens of Ghent what they think of their city is a pointless exercise: you’ll find only unanimous love. And with good reason. Ghent (www.visitgent.be) is one of Europe’s greatest discoveries – small enough to feel cosy but big enough to stay vibrant. It has enough medieval frivolity to create a spectacle but retains a gritty industrial edge that keeps things ‘real’. Tourists remain surprisingly thin on the ground, yet with its fabulous canalside architecture, wealth of quirky bars and some of Belgium’s most fascinating museums, this is a city you really won’t want to miss.

Why choose Ghent for a longer trip:
Ghent is the heart of Flanders, between Brussels and the coast, and equidistant from Antwerp and the French border.
Visit the website www.visitflanders.com, which offers plenty of information about our historic art cities, the Flemish coast and gastronomy, among other things.


Gent is een prachtige kunststad met middeleeuws centrum, veel water. De stad kreeg een prijs voor de gezelligste stad!
In een straal van 50 km vind je andere steden als Brussel, Antwerpen, Brugge. Op een uurtje sta je aan de Noordzee. Alles is makkelijk met openbaar vervoer te bereiken. Het appartement ligt op 10 minuutjes stappen van Station Gent Dampoort.
Het appartement ligt vlak aan een zwembad, en 5 minuutjes verder ben je in het centrum met de middeleeuwse burcht Het Gravensteen, het Belfort, Kathedraal,... Het is er gezellig winkelen en je vindt veel lekkere restaurantjes in de buurt.

My recommendations without travelling too far would be Bruges, Brussels or Antwerp. Bruges is in a way quite similar to Ghent but not so similar that visiting both would be a waste. However, if you want to taste another atmosphere, Brussels or Antwerp would be nice. Also, if you would like to cross a border, the French city of Lille (not too far from Kortrijk actually) is an option for great shopping. Visit Flanders Fields in Ypres and never forget the Great War. Explore also Ypres'medieval past with its famous cloth hall, attent the Last Post service at 8 PM. The lovely coastal beach town of De Haan is also a good option. On a clear weekend day, the town is quite vibrant.
