Luxury Penthouse with 16th Century Tower
Luxury Penthouse within 16th Century Tower
Bruges is a city that will capture your heart! It is a city of human proportions, but one that can never be truly fathomed. Its history has made it great, a fact that garnered it the title of a Unesco World Heritage City. Retaining the mysteries of the Middle Ages and unashamedly exuberant, Bruges has been an international metropolis for centuries.
Our beautiful and modern 2 bedroom, 2 bath penthouse is located as a classified historical monument in the center of Bruges. The condo is at the highest residential vantage point in the city with it's own private tower. This luxury condo was completely renovated in 2010. High-end kitchen appliances and decor with all the luxuries one would expect.
The tower is part of the property with access from the living room and gives a magnificent view over the whole city. (The tower should only be visited by children when in the company of adults). Hardwood floors throughout with carpet in the bedrooms.
A full bathroom in the master bedroom suite with a separate shower and half bath for the other bedroom. Bathroom has heated granite floor. The condo has air conditioning.
Latest Bose stereo/DVD system with IPOD connection and plasma screen and outdoor speakers on the patio.
The terrace has outdoor seating with a beautiful view looking West over city towers. Outdoor speakers and a BBQ complete your outdoor experience. The open stainless kitchen has all one needs to rival the local chefs but several excellent restaurants are just outside the door.
One parking spot is included and is located on the court yard which is secured by an automatic gate. The premises have free wireless high speed internet and digital cable as well as a WIFI printer.
Bruges, the capital of West Flanders in northwest Belgium, is distinguished by its canals, cobbled streets and medieval buildings. Its port, Zeebrugge, is an important center for fishing and European trade.
The city-center Markt features horse-drawn carriage rides and 17th-century houses converted into restaurants and cafes, as well as the 13th-century belfry with its 47-bell carillon and 83m tower with panoramic views.

Great apartment in convenient location
My wife and I spent a week in this apartment and had a really nice experience. The place is very clean and has modern conveniences (e.g. laundry, kitchen, TV, lighting) and some charm with the wooden beams, the tower to climb, etc.). The rep Sophie who met us to let us in was wonderful and friendly. She showed us around a bit and then gave us her # and offered to help in any way she could. We spent a solid 3-days in Brugges enjoying great meals, climbing the Belfry, visiting museums and having much too much beer and frites (fries). We also did a day trip bike ride to Damme (recommend!), a day trip to Ghent (also recommend) and a day trip to Oostend (recommend if you want to hang at the beach in good weather, otherwise maybe not). The apartment is a short walk from the Market place center and there are several great restaurants that the owner will share with you. I should note that the floorpan is interesting with the Master & kids room (w/2 little beds) sharing a shower in the hallway and then the kids bathroom located down some stairs by the entrance. When you arrive at the train station from Brussels (every hour there are trains from the airport), hop in a taxi as it's not walkable. Recommend printing a zoomed-in map of the house to give to the taxi as it's a bit hard to pronounce the street. : ) The owner via this 3rdhome booking was very friendly and provided very helpful pre-trip information. ”
