Cityhome in Bruges BE, Belgium

Dear Intervac friends,

Marc ( 65 ) and I (61) live in Bruges, the Venice of the North 😊 .

We live in the center of Bruges not far away (10') to the touristic area which we call " Golden Triangle " of our beatiful town. Our street is quiet and nearby a green foot path and bikeway all around Bruges. ( Vestingen )
Within 10 minutes walking you will find essential shops (Butcher, Bakery, Zero Waste Bio Shop and a Grocery) and two Supermarkets ( Delhaize Park en Smatch)

Kind regards,

Michèle and Marc

Bruges is a famous town in the west of Flanders regio.Bruges is partly encircled by the big canal Gent-Brugge -Oostende.
The inner city has some small canals ( de reien) which can be visited bij motor-boat . Our Venice ( of the north)
We live in "the egg of Bruges". Het ei van Brugge . (cfr Photo of our dining room)
The inner part of Bruges can be visited just by walking.
Although you also can take a bus to the more commercial center of the town ( stop Vlamingstraat). Within 5 minutes walking from our home you 'll find a stop nearby in the ' Langestraat'.
It is about 30 minutes ( +- 25 kilometers driving by car) to the Belgian coast( the Northsea coast). But there are regular trains from Bruges to Blankenberge ( most popular coast town but very crowdy ) Knokke, Zeebrugge and Oostende. We prefer De Haan( 20 km with car) or 1 hour with the bus.No high apartment buildings and sun on the dike.

Bruges promoted her town with a trailer( promotion film) about Bruges and her environment .
