The Protea B&B is just on the outskirts of Ypres and located in a prime position for visiting the Ypres Salient. Alain and Annie were fantastic hosts, providing a warm and inviting atmosphere from the off. I'm not one for clichés but we really were made to feel apart of their family. The B&B decor is vibrant and bright, with...

The Protea is several kilometres outside Ypres and is accessible by a frequent bus service and reasonably priced taxis. The accommodation is extremely well ordered; comfortable beds in very clean rooms and serviced devotedly on a daily basis. The breakfast was varied, more than ample and thoughtfully provided. While Annie quietly cultivates dignified care of guests, Alain is a very...

I booked on the basis that the proprietor provided conducted tours of the local WW1 sites and was not disappointed by the trip around some of the sites in the area.
