Zalig Aan Zee – Elisabethstraat 8

Belle Époque in Belgium: Close to the sea, in the midst of the historic splendour of the seaside resort of Blankenberge, stands this listed holiday home. A bright and atmospheric gathering place for families, friends and larger groups.

Up to 24 people can spend their holiday or working days together at Elisabethstraat 8. An exceptional accommodation that resembles a sophisticated shared residence with its eight bedrooms and open-plan living spaces. The bourgeois, four-storey house with elaborate art nouveau decoration has been completely renovated and transformed into a contemporary holiday home with great sensitivity for its valuable architectural heritage.

Right next to the entrance area on the ground floor is the highlight of the house – the dining room with impressive ceiling painting and wall decorations. Protagonist is the sculptural dining table, spanning the room like a wave in motion. The large kitchen is flooded with light through two floor-to-ceiling windows and offers a view of the small garden: A special haven of peace in the middle of the city – for a café, aperitif, pizza-making and togetherness. The lounge in the basement surprises with its large wooden ceiling and a multitude of sitting areas. Here, the tadelakt floor flows smoothly into a cosy and varied sofa landscape that offers space for all guests. All eight bedrooms, spread over the first and second floors, vary in size and are suitable for two to six people with a mezzanine and spiral staircase. Each individual room has its own en suite bathroom.

What to do

Beach walks, swimming in the sea or in the pool, surfing, kite surfing, stand-up paddling, body boarding, kayaking, rafting or sailing, walks through the Uitkerkse Polder nature reserve or on the De Fonteintjes dune belt, adventure trails for young and old, cycling tours, a visit to the Belle Époque Centre, Sea Life, the Maritime Scute Museum or the old fishermen's cottages, mini golf, bowling or trips to Bruges or Ghent.

Wir haben ein langes Wochenende im Januar mit 18 Personen (Eltern und Kinder) in dieser wunderbaren Unterkunft verbracht. Die Buchung war von Anfang an sehr unkompliziert und sehr freundlich. Das Haus ist phänomenal und hervorragend ausgestattet. Man fühlt sich direkt wohhl. In der Küche gibt es alle benötigten Utensilien und vor allem genügend Teller und Tassen. Alle haben sich von Anfang an wohl gefühlt und wir hatten eine richtig gute Zeit. Der große Wohnraum mit der Sofalandschaft war nicht nur für die Kinder perfekt. Man hat das Gefühl, dass jedes Detail in dem Haus durchdacht ist und können es nur empfehlen! Vielen Dank, wir haben es wirklich sehr genossen.

Wir haben mit unserer Familie (Großeltern, Kinder, Enkelkinder), 20 Personen, eine wundervolle Zeit im Haus Elisabethstraat 8 verbracht. Das Haus eignet sich hervorragend für große Gruppen. Das Zimmer mit der Wohnlandschaft ist einzigartig und auch der große Esstisch ist toll. Wir haben sogar einen Weihnachtsbaum im Haus vorgefunden. Buchung und Organisation perfekt und unkompliziert. Wir würden das Haus jederzeit wieder buchen. Vielen Dank für alles.
