Apartment in the historical heart of Bruges

Apartement 105 m² with unique view on the Groenerei-canal. Fish market, Burg and Market Square nearby. Livingroom 5mx5m, kitchen, bathroom, 1 bedroom double bed and 1 room (bureau) with couch/bed for 1 person, terrace in the back on the south.
Hilde originates from Bruges and knows all the (little) secrets of this city, that is well known for its medieval buildings, its restaurants, its museums, its beers and its chocolates. (www.visitbruges.be/en)
Apart from the attractiveness of Bruges itself, visits to the coast (25 km), Ghent (50 km, 30 min by train), Antwerp and Brussels (100 km, 1h by train) are obvious. Amsterdam (200 km) and Paris (250 km) are nearby also. Railway station 15 min walk away, with good direct connections to Ghent, Antwerp, Brussels and Ostend, but use of pur car is no problem.
