Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in Belgium, Bruges is a romantic stopover, ideal for strolling along its canals, its secret gardens and its medieval streets. Whether by horse drawn carriage, by foot or by bicycle, the “Venice of the North” reveals its charm and the wealth of its historical heritage, recognized as such by UNESCO. Although history is present on every street, Bruges is nevertheless a city resolutely turned toward the future. Named the cultural capital of Europe in 2002, several contemporary architectural projects have been undertaken on the cobblestones of the Place du Bourg, in the shadow of the Beffroi or adjacent to the banks of the Lac d’Amour. In addition to the physical attraction of Bruges, it is also known for the exceptional quality of its craftwork beginning with its lace and its chocolate. The city has more than a hundred shops and workshops specializing in the making of chocolate.
On the banks of Den Dyver, one of Bruges’ most typical canals, where a flea market takes place every Saturday and Sunday from April to October, a 15th century Patrician manor house has been transformed into a luxury hotel whose facades open onto the historical heart of the city. The work of the Flemish master decorator Pieter Porters, well known for his warm, romantic and rustic interiors, the Hotel De Tuilerieën provides visitors with a peaceful and comfortable refuge, the concept being to feel at home. “I’m a designer of cozy nests,” says Pieter Porters. “Each interior has its own individual character. The climate of a room is determined by a number of factors. Even if a room seems sublime in a magazine, it has to be liveable.” All of the rooms are decorated with antique furniture, colored fabrics and works of art combining elegance with old world charm and modern comfort. Recently, the hotel has added a space dedicated to the well being of the body including a sauna, an indoor swimming pool and an ultra modern hammam whose contemporary design is in direct contrast to the bourgeois spirit of the site. Since its opening, the Hotel De Tuiliereën has attracted numerous celebrities including singer Eros Ramazotti, Prince Felipe of Spain, Demis Roussos and actor David Sterne who have all been won over by its charm.
In 2007, the hotel welcomed the stars of the film, “In Bruges” the majority of whose scenes were shot in the city, namely Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleesan and Ralph Fiennes.
