If you are looking for a bit of peace and quiet, then B&B De Windhoek (meaning Windy Corner) might just be your thing.
We are located in Flanders, close to the French border and the Belgian seaside. The house is at the end of the village, ten minutes walk from the village church and backs onto agricultural land, giving you wide views. Even if the corn is high you can still look for miles from the bedroom window, which is on the first floor under the well insulated roof.
We have two rooms, a double room and a big room, which can accommodate four people. Both rooms offer the same comfort. The box-spring beds can be made up as a double, 2m80 on 2m10 or as two singles, let us know what you prefer. The bathrooms have a bath and a separate shower and all rooms are equipped with a small TV and an Ethernet broadband connection. A good traditional Belgian breakfast is served in the living room.
There is also a big garden, at the moment rather untamed. Feel free to walk on the grass but watch out for dips created by the moles. It's a great place to blow away the cobwebs.
Leke lies in the Flemish Westhoek. The village belongs to the town of Diksmuide which is 7 kilometres away. The river the IJzer (Yser) runs through Diksmuide and flows into the sea at Nieuwpoort (Newport), which is only 12 km away from Leke. The area is a flat country with many walk and cycle routes. Cycles can be rented in Diksmuide and you can store them in our garage.
During the first world war there was a lot of action in this region and many monuments, cemeteries and trenches can be visited. Ieper (Ypres) is only half an hour away by car and so is Brugge (Bruges), another cultural hot spot. You can also take the bus in Leke to visit Bruges, Ostend or Diksmuide although the ride will be a bit longer. For a daytrip to Gent (Ghent) you can take the train from the station in Diksmuide.
We are a Belgian/British couple and we welcome with great pleasure English speaking guests. Marleen and Dave.
