Cycling in Ostend
When we cycle on the seawall in Ostend, we feel even more at home. With the wind at our backs or seeking pleasure in fighting against the force of the wind. It's both delicious. The center of Ostend is only an 8-minute bike ride away the apartment en the Loft. Do we want to continue cycling to Wenduine and De Haan? Then we take the free ferry in the port of Ostend. This sails very regularly. Our bicycles are also transferred free of charge. We cycle to the southwest, to Middelkerke? Then we can do this completely on the seawall. With a view of the sea and safely away from the street. Delicious!
Secure and covered bicycle shed
We offer our guests a good and safe place to park their bicycle. This way they are protected against bicycle thieves. In the Apartment you can put your bicycles in your own covered garage put away. There is still room for your two-wheelers behind or in front of your car. You enter the garage at street level. You don't have to take an elevator. Garage locked, and they're safe. In the Loft you have room in one of the bicycle sheds in the basement. Only bicycles of owners and tenants of the apartments are parked here. Enter from the back immediately on the right level. Be sure to secure your bicycles, because other owners or tenants will also be in this space.
Bicycle rides by the sea
