Basically, there is the left side of the beach area, which is less commercialized (and cheaper), and the right side where all the bars/restaurants/lounges/clubs are.

9 times per year the La Bouitte restaurant transforms into a unique setting for a winemaker’s dinner. Each time the Meilleur Chefs invite a French winemaker who brings along the most exquisite vintages and exposes them during the evening. Based upon these vintages, La Bouitte’s chef invents a unique menu that accords perfectly with the wines.

The Holy Food Market in Ghent opened its door this weekend. It’s the second food market in Belgium and inspired by food markets in Barcelona, Copenhagen and Rotterdam. Fancy street food is hot at the moment. Michelin star chefs are opening luxury French fry shacks and serving ** hot dogs. So what in God’s name can you expect from the Holy Food Market in Ghent (pun intended)? What to expect? As I entered the Holy Food Market, I was pleasantly surprised by its unique setting. The

Since the beginning of time - or maybe around 1600 AD - Pineau des Charentes took up its place among the great classics of aperitifs. Classics? Time to stir things up! Six Belgian bartenders got creative with this sunshine in a bottle and delivered six beautifully crafted pieces of art. To our surprise we came to the conclusion that Pineau des Charentes is the perfect ingrediënt for a pure and refined cocktail that needs little else.  Pineau des Charentes is made through the careful combination of
