Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The willow-lined canals, lush green pastures and extensive soft, sandy dunes of Flanders need no introduction; their beauty has been captured for centuries by some of the world's greatest artists. The Meetjesland, however is known only to a discerning few, yet it has much to offer anyone seeking peace and quiet.
Its one of those rare corners of Western Europe where time has virtually stood still and man has barely changed the face of nature.
Today its a land of creeks and polders, tall fields, « sleeping » dikes and old smugglers routes in the north and woodlands in the south which contain beautiful castles and castle farms.
The region is ideal for cycling, walking, relaxing and fishing and of course to discover the historical towns of Ghent, Hulst ( NL) 17 km - Bruges, Antwerp, Damme, Middelburg (NL) 40 km - Brussels, Oudenaarde 65 km
Lille / France 85 km.
The Dutch North-sea Coast of Breskens, Knokke and Vlissingen is a 30 minute drive.

ASSENEDE is on the Belgium/Netherlands border and there are good connections by car or by train ( Ghent Station - Eurostar/TGV/Thalys) to Paris, London, Amsterdam and Cologne.

The Cottage ' T Staaksken is situated an top an old dike, 2 kilometers from the village of Assenede. The village is one of the oldest villages in Flanders and you are close to the Dutch village of Philipinne ( 8 km ) with many restaurants of international repute.
