British nostalgia at the beach

De Haan, also called Le Coq sur Mer, is a charming, old-fashioned seaside resort with beautiful belle-époque villas, pleasant restaurants and the well-known over 100-year old Royal Ostende Golf Club. The beaches of de Haan are genuine family beaches with colourful beach huts. Duinhof is situated at the edge of this lovely coastal village.

Duinhof is an attractive small-scale country house hotel where English ambiance meets Flemish Hospitality. All rooms are furnished with antique furniture and king-size beds. The English style furnishings immediately catch the eye. Each room has a private terrace with a view of the larger gardens and the heated swimming pool.

Duinhof ’s restaurant, Casanova with Bib Gourmand, is located within walking distance on the nearby Zeedijk, offering beautiful views over the beach and the North Sea. The cuisine can be described as refined French-Belgian with a touch of Italian. The monumental romantic city of Bruges is only a 15-minute drive away.
