About the property

1 bedroom ,1 queen sofabed, 1 full bathroom, 1 halfbath, sleeps 4 max

'Romance on the Canal' is a one bedroom apartment on the ground floor of a very quiet listed 1850 building. It is located just in front of one of the larger canals in Bruge. Walk out the door and feed the serene looking swans that live just at the bridge, a 1 minute walk, that leads to the special Artists Quarter and the central square, just a 5 minute walk, if you are not sidetracked by the many art galeries and interesting boutiques along the way.

The apartment is an open plan that surrounds a central patio. The kitchen, hall and bedroom all open with sliding glass doors to the patio area. There is a comfortable queen size sofa bed in the living area. The queen bedroom is very cozy! There is one full bathroom with a tub and shower off the bedroom and one half bathroom closer to the living area.

The kitchen is totally equipped with all appliances, large and small, all dinnerware,and picnic supplies. The decor is of high standard.

A Carrefour Express market is just on the other side of the canal, 3 minutes walk. We provide a rolling shopping caddie and canvas eco-friendly bags. Parking can be found easily at Biekorf parking lot. You can unload in front of the apartment and your gps can direct you to the parking. Very close and less than 15eu per day.

There is a pharmacie just across the bridge , 1 minute.

Why Dawne Leturcq-Whatley chose Bruges (Brugge)

As with my property in Montreal, I knew it was mine the moment I walked in. It is just that special feeling.

To my surprise, the listing agent did not even mention it was directly on a major canal in Bruges, the Venice of the North.

Big outdoor terrace was a plus for gardening!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Firstly, thank you Dawne for making the booking so easy and pleasant. It really was a pleasure to talk to you on the phone prior to our arrival and you really did make everything very easy. The apartment is stunning and the location perfect for a holiday in Brugge. You are close enough to the center Markt for a leisurely stroll in and far enough to be out of the crowds.

The furnishings are beautiful and to be honest, although the pictures on the internet are lovely, they really don't do it justice. It has everything you could possibly want for on holidays and much more.

We stayed 2 nights (3 people) and there was plenty of room. I would highly recommend this apartment and hope to be back one day.

The perfect apartment in Bruges

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this property look enticing but it's even better when you're here. The location is excellent - 10 minute walk to the center of town - and it's lovely to be on a canal. A grocery store is just across the canal. The decor of the apartment is beautiful and we especially enjoyed the art work. The central outdoor patio is a terrific bonus for any time of day or evening and the apartment is a delightful place to take a break from being a tourist. I cannot imagine a better place to stay in Bruges!

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed apartment- close to everything. There was a market and pharmacy across the canal, plus minutes to town. We realized the last day that we were only a 20 min walk to the windmills. The apt had everything we needed and more. It had a lovely patio as well as great separation with bedroom and family room. Loved it and would stay again!

absolutely one of the best

  • 5 of 5

every thing was equal to or better than the description: plenty of room, comfortable, quiet and well located for easy walking access to all brugge has to offer. the most valuable review we can offer is that we will be returning for a similar time and period in 2017

Lovely apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in December with my wife and son. we booked this apartment so that we could visit the Christmas market.

Booking this property was extremely easy. we called Dawne and she was very helpful. she explained all about the property and gave us some details about Brugee itself and good places to visit.

when we arrived at the property it was exactly as described, to be honest the pictures do not do it justice. it a lovely property and very clean and well maintained throughout.

There was a double bed for my wife and i and the sofa bed for my son.

There was a parking permit supplied so we could park almost right outside the door. we did have a bit of a nightmare finding the permit when we arrived as someone had placed it between a couple of books in the cabinet.

The property is just a short walk from the main square with all the shops, restaurants and sights. it close enough for everything but just far enough away to not have any noise. it was very peaceful.

We would defiantly recommend this property, we have already recommended it to other family members. in fact we are hoping to have a chance to go back to Brugee either in the summer 2016 or at Christmas again. if we do we will defiantly be contacting Dawne to book again if its available.

Overall a great property, clean and tidy and a great location.

Thank you Dawne!
