Flat in BLANKENBERGE at the NORTH SEA and 10 Km from BRUGES, Belgium

BLANKENBERGE at the North Sea Coast, Belgium
Blankenberge is a town in the  province of West Flanders.
Specially in this year all the world will remember the beginning of the First World War 1914-1918.
From Blankenberge it is possible to visit Flanders Fields in Ypres, War Cemetries, Battlefields, Museums, ... about 1 hour by car.
Our apartment is 2 minutes from the train , tram and bus station: by train >>10 minutes to Bruges, 50 minutes to Ghent, 1 hour to Brussels,...
On 1 January 2010 Blankenberge had a total population of 18,907. The total area of the municipality is 17.41 km², giving a population density of 1,086 inhabitants per km².
Like most other Belgian coastal towns, a main characteristic of this one is that of a national and to a certain extent international seaside resort.
Apart from the sandy beach, there's a structure unique along the Belgian coast: a 350-m long pier, constructed in 1933.
 
The apartment has a rather spacious living, a kitchen,1 bedroom, a bathroom with shower, and a small balcony.
It is on the 3rd floor and there is (sorry!) no elevator.
 
In 3 minutes you are at the sandy beach with a beautiful promenade, and  lots of restaurants, shops, bars, and even a casino.
In all seasons there are many things to do : walking in the Polders, cycling
to Bruges and Damme (medieval towns), shopping, museums, ...
The Koningin Fabiola Hospital is about 1 km from the apartment.
The shopping street is 1 minute from our place, where you can find all you need: medical doctors, dentist, pharmacy, optician, bakery, butcher,...
 
At the Parking next to the train station, you can leave your car for 6 or 8 euro / 24 hours.
