House in BLANKENBERGE, Belgium

Blankenberge is a very nice coastal town by the North Sea.
The neighbourhood where we live is quiet, though it is very close to the beach, the sea or the city centre.
The house has two floors. We sleep downstairs. There are three bedrooms and a bathroom.
And a little garden.
We live on the first floor. There we have a big sunnyside terrace too.
In five minutes walking you find all the shops, pubs or restaurants. You can visit the large sandy beaches at the beautiful North Sea coast or have a drink in one of the bars on the beach.
Cities like Brugge (15 min), Gent, Antwerp or Brussels are easy to reach. The Dutch border is only a 20 minute drive. France can be reached within an hour.
We have three adult children, they don't live with us anymore. They all have their own house in Blankenberge or Gent.
We do have a sweet white indoor cat, who will need a little bit of attention.
At about one km from our house we have an allotment garden with lots of fresh bio vegetables.
