Enjoy the seaside with a holiday home in Ostend

Situated on the coast of Belgium in the Flemish province of West Flanders, Ostend has long been a popular destination in which to rent a holiday house, holiday apartment or holiday home. Lord Byron, Albert Einstein and Marvin Gaye are just a few of the famous personalities who have spent time at this historic resort town.

Riches of the past

Once an obscure fishing village, Ostend came to prominence as a seaside resort in the 19th century due, in part, to its popularity with successive generations of Belgian royalty. With holiday rentals, holiday apartments, holiday homes and holiday houses in plentiful supply, the city remains a popular destination for European holidaymakers. The city offers a wealth of historical and cultural attractions to compliment its sweeping sandy beaches including the house of James Ensor, a renowned Belgian painter, the neo-Gothic church of St Peter and St Paul, the North Sea Aquarium and Leopold Park. De Plate Oostend Historical Museum and the Amandine Trawler, now a museum, are also popular attractions as is the city's museum of contemporary art. Students of the Second World War will find a well-preserved section of the fortified Atlantic Wall at an open air museum in nearby Raversijde which is easily accessible from your holiday rental via a tram which runs along the coast.

The living culture

Typical Ostend beers include Dikke Mathile and Keyte Tripel, which provide the perfect accompaniment to the seafood dishes for which the region is famous. Visitors with a sweet tooth will find the Belgian waffles, pancakes and chocolates as well as the Dutch-style Snoepje (sweetie) stores, lit up in shocking neon pink, hard to resist. Pedestrianised streets such as Adolf Buylstraat, Kapellestraat and Vlaanderenstraat are handy for shopping, while the local fish market offers an authentic glimpse of the town's main industry. The historic cities of Bruges, Brussels and Antwerp are all easily accessible when you book a holiday home in Ostend, making it an ideal location from which to explore the Belgium's diverse and unique attractions.

    “A nice town with lots of charm. Here offers itself in the cultural field (museum, gallery, etc.) not viel..oder was at least not good for non-Flemish speaking visitors to find .. The 2 we found were ... zu..vermutlich wrong time at the wrong place. The local Church is truly a gem ... Bautechnisches shops and restaurants are plentiful.
    2 point I would like .... free parking in the downtown area, or something like Touristentickets..und information about the city and its possibilities in eg German.”

    “Within walking distance of beach, beach is very nice and clean. Many restaurants in the vicinity. Many shopping facilities. Was somewhat unusual, close to the boutiques and shops Point 18 o'clock and 18.30. Patience is needed, however, at the car park. Have our vehicle can therefore be in the parking lot and have made the trips by bicycle or train. Station is not far away from the apartment. Is very good connections to Bruges, Ghent and Brussels. Free rental of bicycles is also possible.”
