The 5 most romantic b&bs in Bruges
1) Casa Romantico
This is, as the name says, a romantic house. Hidden down a quiet street in the heart of Bruges, the interior is decorated in New England beach house style with pale wood floors, white furniture and antique bathtubs. It also has a heated swimming pool in the back garden to add a final touch of luxury.
2) Nuit Blanche
The artist David de Graef has created a fabulous guest house in a historic Bruges house. The Belgian royal couple Albert and Paola stayed here after they married in 1959. The two guest rooms look out on a mediaeval walled garden and a little canal. They are designed in the style of a Jan van Eyck painting with old stone fireplaces, stained glass windows and huge oak beds.
3) Number 11
This is an exceptional guest house hidden down a quiet cobbled lane near Burg. It has just four guest rooms decorated in different styles, along with an intimate pine-panelled lounge heated by a log-burning stove and a walled back garden filled with birdsong.
4) La Suite Sans Cravate
Veronique and Henk have created a gorgeous place to stay in a 17th-century brick building opposite their restaurant Sans Cravate. The three guest rooms (named after grape varieties) are decorated in a tasteful, rustic style, with quirky details dotted around. Ask for the Savignon Blanc Suite to sleep in a stunning romantic hideaway under the roof beams.
5) Maison Le Dragon
This romantic guest house is located in a 16th-century house with stylish interiors. The decoration includes wood panelling, rococo antiques and ornate mirrors. It also has a walled garden and a lounge with an open fire for chilly northern days.
