Alain helped us with locating all the sites we needed to see. He took time each morning to ensure we knew exactly where to go. What a wealth of WW1 area knowledge...

B&B The Protea was perfect for my stay in Ypres. Alain and Ann are great hosts. Two of the kindest and friendliest people you'll ever meet. Alain takes time to sit down with you to map out a plan that's perfect for you and Ann's breakfasts are 5 star hotel quality. Thanks again!
