We stayed at Monique’s wonderful B&B/apartment for a whole week in August. It turned out to be the perfect base from which to explore Bruges, as the house was within easy walking distance of the Belfort and other main attractions. Having said this, it’s also in a very quiet neighbourhood and we slept very well all week as the bed was so comfortable!
When I booked the accommodation by email, Monique offered to pick us up from the train station and she also took us back there on the day we left. As a local, she was able to give us lots of valuable tips and advice about the best places to visit and eat at. The apartment was clean and comfortable and on two levels. The kitchen and living area, plus the bathroom are on the lower level, while the bedroom is up some steep stairs in a loft conversion. We had decided to self-cater so we did not buy any breakfasts from Monique, but all the comments in the visitors’ book were very positive about them.
One special bonus of staying here was the fact that the living room window looked out onto a neighbour’s large garden where numerous guinea pigs, rabbits and chickens were running free. They kept us entertained all week!
All in all, we had a fantastic week in Bruges and Monique helped to make it a very memorable holiday. At 50 Euros a night (without breakfast) for both of us, it was also great value. We would definitely stay here again the next time we visit Bruges and would recommend Monique's accommodation to anyone.
