Bruges, West Flanders Province
Your home at the heart of Bruges: comfortable, fully equiped private holiday house.

Private house located in a quiet side street in the very historic centre of Bruges, at 500 m of the market with its belfry tower. Within walking distance of museums, restaurants, boutiques and stores. Swift departure for a bike tour within town or in its surroundings or even to the coast at 15 km.

Opaal holiday house is the perfect place to stay to enjoy the many wonders of Bruges. Martine is the perfect host. Recommend hiring bikes to see some of the surroundings beyond the old town!
