As I'm getting older I find myself steering further and further away from anything that looks like a carbon copy chain hotel. I'm not interested in paying some soul-less company for a box room with one ugly picture in it.
I like to stay places where the owner speaks to you, where the rooms are quirky, where you feel like you're actually part of the destination.
If this sounds like you, Villa des Raisins is a great choice. The location is fantastic, just a few minutes from the centre of Bruges. You're welcomed by the owners as you arrive. We got sat down on their comfy sofa with a coffee, they produced a map and proceeded to talk us through everything great there is to do in Bruges. They must have said this 100's of times, but I really got the impression they love the city and just wanted us to enjoy it.
Breakfast (included) was absolutely fantastic. Not only was there a decent buffet spread, but on a couple of occasions the owners came out with freshly cooked little bites - like a piece of bread with hot mozzarella, tomato and pesto which I'm going to steal the idea for unashamedly.
We only stayed one night. Two would have been perfect.
