What we offer

The accommodation was built out of 2 houses after the war in 1927. The oldest tree of Ypres is standing in our garden. Connected to the house is an old textile factory that serves as a massive dining room now. "The House" is located next to the market square in the old center of Ypres. Whilst your group is less than a minute away from the heart of life and excitement in the market square, the accommodation offers the peace and quiet you need for a good night's sleep.
