About this listing
Welcome in Ghent! Elected by Lonely Planet as one of the most suprising cities in the world. Come and have a taste of it yourself.
By renting this apartment you're making an excellent choice. It' s on a unique spot in town, next to an historical abbey, the first settlement in the city ever. At your doorstep you'll enter a park which leads you to Portus Ganda, a charming inner city port. That includes an historical swimming pool. What you'll enjoy most is walking from here alongside the water to other parts of the city. At the watersides of Ghent where the locals enjoy strolling and jogging around, happiness is not far away
:-) From this part of town, where you'll be living it's only five minutes to the monumental city center.
The apartment is in a new house, built in 2010. We decorated it in style because we live there every now and then. It's 85m2, with a lofty feel. The kitchen has got everything a foodie can dream off: coffee machine with fresh beans, modern cutlery, dishwasher, blender, toaster and so on.There 's internet, a laptop, a big Loewe TV with blu-ray dvd for the best film & music experience, a comfortable king size bed (boxspring), washer & dryer for your clothes, a combi shower & bath for a relaxing time. Ghent offers you a lot of reasons to be out and our apartment will be the perfect extension of your "wauw"-experience! The apartment is 100% for your private use only, so you'll have all privacy.
It' a hot spot neighbourhood with a popular restaurant (locals hope it won't turn touristic :-) just around the corner. Also a few nice bars at the waterside. Supermarkets, butchers, bakeries and grocery stores are nearby. There are alle easily reachable by foot or you can use the bike we're providing.
You'll be 5 minutes away from a trainstation (Ghent Dampoort). Let us know if you're coming by train/car/...we'll send you the directions how to best reach the apartment.
