Three-Nights in Idyllic Bruges with Four-Star Hotel and Eurostar Train: £478
Flemish to its core, Bruges is a medieval, timeless city that has managed to maintain its antique feel through an abundance of canals and chocolate, and a distinct lack of traffic and high-rises. Lose your sense of the 21st century with a three-night holiday in Belgium from ShortBreaks, for views of this idyllic city from the comfort of the four-star, canal-side Hotel De’ Medici in the city centre. With return Eurostar journeys, delicious breakfasts and a range of modern comforts, spend your days wandering the town squares and stopping occasionally for hot chocolate (or, more famously, a beer).
The capital of West Flanders, criss-crossed with countless ancient canal houses and clasping a wealth of art and holy relics, holds a deep respect for ancient traditions like lace making and bell ringing. People live in beautiful old homes, walk to work, and take time to chat in market squares. It’s quiet and peaceful, but always contains a new surprise around the next corner.
