WEEKEND ESCAPE: THE LITTLE MONASTERY IN BELGIUM

monestry-1

The Little Monastery is a beautiful B&B situated in the green and open countryside of Damme in Belgium. The property has a long history: the land was a gift of Margaretha of Constantinople in 1275. In the late 16th century a small monastery with about ten monks was founded. The main goal of the monks to come here was to build dikes & to protect the land from getting flooded. Recently the Garnier family turned the property into a magnificent place to stay. The B&B consists of carefully restored buildings originating from the 17th, 18th & 19th century. Owner Brigitte Garnier: “We feel lucky to have the chance to live in a magnificent place called ‘Vaucelleshof’, where the light is strong and the Flemish country feeling is present”.
