A blissful holiday at the seaside (Zalig Aan Zee) is the motto of the five holiday homes in Knokke-Heist, the most fashionable seaside resort on the Belgian coast. The former fishermen’s houses which are not far from the beach can accommodate 6 to 14 people. Their rustic/casual flair – with natural, robust materials and colors that evoke the beach, dunes and the sea – creates a relaxed holiday atmosphere. Throughout the houses there is recycled wood from old scaffolding with a patina of cement and other signs of usage.
The houses have a similar floor plan and are all furnished in the typical “Zalig aan Zee” style. On the ground floor is the combined open living room with kitchen. The garden with lounge area and fireplace looks like an extra room, because it features wood-paneled walls and a stone floor just like the living room. The bedrooms are on the first floor and the attic. A paradise for children is the sleeping loft under the gable with its built-in beds and additional pull-out beds.
