Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

At the end of a cobble stone path lies the lovely Lion Bridge house. The charming and romantic cottage is a quiet, green oasis situated in the heart of the historic centre of Bruges. It is an 18th century house that has been entirely renovated and has been taken up in the list of Ancient Monuments.
The cottage has both a private front garden and a private canal garden with beautiful views.

Inside, the house has a loft atmosphere with an open space and mezzanine. Living room, dining area and modern kitchen are situated in the open space. There is toilet on the main level.

Upstairs, on the mezzanine floor, there is a queen size bed (140x200). Please note that there is no door to this bedroom, and the bedroom faces over the sitting area.

An old oak stairs leads to the downstairs level, where there is another bedroom with view on the canal garden with two single beds (2x 90x200) and furthermore a separate bathroom (bath, toilet).

There are chairs and a table for outside eating and drinking.

While the cottage is not luxurious, it is unique because of its charm, setting and views.
