They provide furnished accomodation in a residential setting, offering amenities , such as a fully equipped kitchen, living room and workspace, while being operated and serviced professionally ( maintenance, cleaning, towels, laundry,check in etc.).
Due to their pricing model, the rate per night gets lower the longer you stay.
When staying for more than 30 days savings up to 60% compared to hotels with a similar standard.
Bruges is propably Belgium’s most perfectly preserved medieval town. Its beautiful architecture attracts more than 7 million visitors every year. With its wealth of interesting canals, churches, cathedrals and old architecture Bruges still retains a fragile medieval air. After walking those tiny roads or taking a boat trip on the canals…Bruges will be for many the most delightful of all the cities of Flanders . Because the center of Bruges is small, even those with only a day to spend sightseeing can expect to take away a good idea of all the things to do in Bruges. Must see viewing should definitely include at least the market place with the belfry, the Burg with the Basilica of the Holy Blood and a trip on the canals.
You can find Bruges on any map. Cobbled lanes and canals link market squares lined with soaring towers, historic churches and old almshouses. But do not forget visitin Bruges is like visitin Venice…. there’s a constant crush of tourists in the centre, especially through the summer.There’s a special charm in winter when you can have the magnificent town almost to yourself.

Three star Michelin chef and co-owner, Sergio Herman moved from Holland to big City Antwerp. Where divine gastronomy meets interior design
His toprestaurant “The Jane” was designed by Dutch architect Piet Boon. Sitting there is not only a “A memorable dining experience” but also looking around to watch the spectacular light- chandelier.
“…culinary landmark in Antwerp..”
It was the intention of interior designer Piet Boon to mix the artisanal feel of the historic chapel, propelling it forward with a contemporary underground atmosphere.
The goal of the renovation of the chapel was not to do a makeover, but was focused on bringing out the existing materials of the space.
A selection was made of high quality materials such as leather, oak and natural stone prompting a specific palette for the lighting. A massive radial chandelier (12x9m) called the ‘Lion fish’ suspended over the dining area contributes to the ambient divinity of the old chapel.
The result is a scenic experience seamlessly combining engineering expertise with gastronomy and artistry. Antwerp is a 50 minutes drive from medieval Bruges.
