Romantic Bed & Breakfast

[All pictures: B&B Loverlij & Claude Smekens]

In the Spring 2010-issue of the Belgian Landelijk Wonen - magazine I found this beautiful report about B&B Loverlij, situated in West-Flanders/Belgium.

´All the bedrooms have the names of old roses. Blanche Fleur, Rosalita, Belle Amour´...

´All started with roses´, tells Lies, owner of the most lovely Bed & Breakfast Loverlij, which is situated in Belgium, near romantic town Bruges. ´In fact it did start with one rose and finally we managed to create 40 garden-rooms with more than 1000 kinds of roses, ranged according to a theme´.

The interior of this B&B is white, fresh and romantic. The lady of the house likes to use natural materials and combines easily old things with new, vintage with modern. The building is a ´hoeve´, a farm from the 1300´s and Lies and her partner rebuilt and renovated the entire building. Amateurs of canopy beds, embroidery and soft colours will find their pleasure here. Guests may take a bath in the nice perfume of roses-oil and during Summertime everywhere you´ll find bouquets with fragrant roses.

Hello Marjolijn, first of all I would like to thank you for leaving such a sweet and personal comment on my blog. Can't tell you how happy it made me. It really is a pleasure meeting you!
Your blog is very inspirational, all the photos are stunning, I enjoyed watching them!
Say hi to your Erika for me :o) (is her name also written with a "k"?) haha, it varies from person to person and I rarely find anyone from other countries with a "k" instead of "c". Well anyhow, I thank you again. We will surely keep in touch.
With honest acknowledgement, Erika

Liebe Marjolijn,
über deine pünktlichen Glückwünsche zum Namenstag habe ich mich sehr gefreut!
Das Gleiche möchte ich heute an dich zurückgeben, ich denke heute ist dein Ehrentag, oder ist es doch der 12.September, an "Mariä Namen"

Carte Blanche, ein neuer Blog?
Er ist sehr schön und interessant zugleich, ich komme sicher wieder hierher zurück.

Alles Liebe euch allen
und herzliche Grüße
