About Damme

The ‘Damse Vaart’ a long treelined canal in Damme, combined with the old buildings, authentic atmosphere and wonderful picturesque surroundings, give Damme its unique and well-known character.

The house is situated in a quiet street in the heart of this medieval town. Damme is also well-known for its cosy and excellent restaurants located on and around the village square.

Damme is a 5-minute drive from Bruges and just 15 minutes from Knokke!

Many walking and cycling routes start off in Damme.

Places of interest

In Damme, as you stroll among all of the historic buildings, it’s very easy to imagine yourself being right back there in the Middle Ages. The then prosperous port still sits in splendour today with its stately mansions, the Gothic town hall, museums, charming windmills, the ‘The Church of Our Lady’ and other churches without spires ...

Be prepared for a wonderful surprise when you discover the valuable nature conservation areas and take in the panoramic landscapes. Regardless of whether it's the impressions made by pollarded willows or slanting poplars planted along dikes, canals and streams, or reclaimed land and creek remnants, all bear witness to the century-long struggle between man and water.
