Welcome to The Salient

The Salient | Check availability

The Salient is a historical building in the centre of Ypres, located only 160m from the market square. Here, we can accommodate groups of up to 102 people in a quiet area, even though it's located in the heart of the West-Flemish city of peace. The ground floor has recently been renovated entirely and opens onto the terrace and large private garden, which means enough place for everyone.

A symbolic location beyond compare

Old buildings can be fascinating. They always make you curious to find out what happened there before you visited it for the first time. The Salient has a full bookshelf of such stories to tell.

  • 1914 - 1918: destroyed
  • 1927: textile factory
  • 1940 - 1945: "black house" for collaborationism
  • 1984: dentist lab
  • 2006: accommodation for groups

With its 1000m² on the ground, of wich the half is taken by the garden, and another 1000m² of total living space on 4 floors, The Salient is the largest private property in the centre of Ypres. Eclecticism and Art Nouveau architectural influences (late 19th century) bring history to life the first second you enter The Ypres Salient. In short, The Salient is a unique place to stay and will make your trip to the Ypres region unforgettable.
