Best two nights in Brugge! David is amazingly kind host. The place is a must when in Brugge! It's 5 stars in its own right. Comfortable bed, clean, beautiful, we just loved it! Breakfast is lovely. The only flaw was we couldn't try the Michelin-star restaurant that is a skip and a hop away because it's closed on Sundays and Mondays, but David has excellent recommendations for local foods that were very yummy!

Everything David writes about and describes in his offering is true; and better than can be imagined. The connection to the bridge, the antiquity of the building; the way he has made it up to date with modern conveniences without ruining what one is coming to experience; the surrounding museums and churches and the canal out front; the garden, not to mention the requisite breakfast and hospitality.
One of the things we enjoyed most was the crowds left by 5-6 pm and we had the quiet evenings to ourselves, and the crowds didn't show back up until about 9:30 -10 am when the clapping of horses shoes and the boats started again. But by then we were done with breakfast and out to join them. This is a unique experience. Well worth it.

We stayed here on the recommendation of friends and will always be grateful for the suggestion. Others have described the house, the environment, the breakfast, the hospitality of David himself, the fabulous location, and it is hard to find much that is new to add. We were grateful for the introduction to Brugge from David and used his marked-up map throughout our stay. It did mean we saw a lot off the beaten track, which is so important when the main locations are so busy with crowds. Being located so close to the centre also meant it was easy to take a number of smaller excursions rather than being out all day.
If you want a unique experience do add Nuit Blanche to your list.

I rarely get blown away, but this place may be the best "bed and breakfast" at which we have stayed these past decades of travel; it is at least one of the best. Not only is the location terrific (across a canal from the Bruges Madonna, and immediately adjacent to the so-called lovers' bridge) but also the rooms are a remarkable combination of the ancient and the high-tech. On top of that, the word "breakfast" is a poor description of the delicious tour de force in AM culinary arts that Nuits Blanche served up. But one cannot stop there. The artist-host is a fount of information on walks to take, places to dine, and points of interest. In the end, our only regret was being unable to stay longer -- to enjoy the room, the breakfasts, and of course Bruges.

just in the centre of the town there is a small castle, so they call it. a famous painter, David de Graef, is the owner and he loves to make it you comfortable. in the morning you get a wunderfully breakfast. and he loves to drink Cava, so you must do it also!!
