I don’t often talk about design hotels outside of Scandinavia but this family owned b+b in Belgium was too good not to share. This heritage farmhouse named The Bunkers was designed and restored by Bruges based firm Architectuurburo Govaert & Vanhoutte. An architecturally minimalist style building with 5 bedrooms a communal kitchen, dining area and swimming pool. Designed to suit the family and visiting guests.
The b+b features lots of products from Danish company Vipp, including my favourite kitchen. Which obviously caught my eye.
“We set out for the kitchen to be our favourite room of the B&B, and we wanted it to be an area that our guests could really enjoy. And we were not disappointed.”, says Axel (owner).
I think you’ll agree that this place is a dream!
“A visit to The Bunkers B&B is indeed an opportunity to explore the unspoiled nature of Belgium. The area around The Bunkers is a protected bird sanctuary, which allows for unlimited explorations of the nature and wildlife. ‘We imagined The Bunkers as an exclusive retreat, where you can recharge your batteries. We wanted to offer the complete package; you can relax, explore, swim and socialize. Everything is available within our 250m2. And you can eat your breakfast to the view of fields and sheep, what more can you wish for?’, says Axel.”
This place is most definitely on my travel list!
