Description from owner

Description

Built in 1921 right after WW1, this house is a typical one for the region. During the renovation as much original elements were preserved to give you a taste of how people lived back then (but upgraded and enlarged to accommodate our current needs of course). The housefront itself is protected by law and considered to be part of the Ypres architectural patrimony. During the autumn and summer you will find a table and chairs outside on the small courtyard to enjoy breakfast, a coffee or have a smoke.

I'll be present to welcome you and give you a small tour of the house plus instruct you of the safety regulations in place. Most of the time I'll be next doors, so if you need help or just want to talk, you're welcome to ring at the door. I'm very familiar with the region and the history of WW1 and WW2 and it will be a pleasure to point you out a few things which you won't hear or find that quickly in the touristic info available.

It's oh so calm

It's oh so calm yet in the center of a city. The fact that it is so close to the old city walls and its huge park was for me the reason to come and live here. Upon arrival I suggest you have a look at the walls and the view.

The Flanders region

Ypres is a Belgian municipality located in the Flemish province of West Flanders. During World War I, Ypres was the centre of intense and sustained battles between German and Allied forces. During the war, because it was hard to pronounce in English, British troops nicknamed the city "Wipers".

Ypres occupied a strategic position during World War I because it stood in the path of Germany's planned sweep across the rest of Belgium and into France from the north (the Schlieffen Plan). The neutrality of Belgium was guaranteed by Britain; Germany's invasion of Belgium brought the British Empire into the war. The German army surrounded the city on three sides, bombarding it throughout much of the war. To counterattack, British, French, and allied forces made costly advances from the Ypres Salient into the German lines on the surrounding hills.

After the war the town was rebuilt with the main square, including the Cloth Hall and town hall, being rebuilt as close to the original designs as possible. The Cloth Hall today is home to In Flanders Fields Museum, dedicated to Ypres's role in the First World War.

The Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing in Ypres commemorates those soldiers of the British Commonwealth who fell in the Ypres Salient during the First World War before 16 August 1917, who have no known grave.
