An oasis of elegance awaits you in the renovated 15th century monastery in the heart of Bruges. Paintings, tapestries, silk curtains and antiques combined with contemporary, pastel-coloured interiors give the house its incomparable atmosphere. Whether on the sunny terrace overlooking the Dijver Canal, cosy in the oak dining room or by the fireplace, the historic hotel offers you the perfect setting for every occasion.
The Vermast family welcomes you as hosts of this exceptional boutique hotel. They open the former monastery doors to you with warmth and attentively but unobtrusively take care of your stay in Bruges. The Vermast family perfectly manages to pick up the history of the medieval building with antique furniture and paintings. At the same time, with fresh colours and modern elements, they create a contemporary hotel that meets the highest standards.
