B&B Emma – The Amazing Jimmy and Leen
CERCLE BRUGES AND CHELSEA DAGGER
So when it comes to staying in Bruges, here at From Real People style we have found an amazing independent B&B for you. We stayed in Bruges in April 2017 and it was wonderful to meet Jimmy and Leen during our trip. Their B&B, called B&B Emma, is named after their daughter and they really love sharing their home with their guests. It was thanks to them and their awesome recommendations that we had such a perfect trip to Bruges. If you are a fan of football, ask Jimmy about his love for the local club Cercle Bruges, where he was club captain in 2007 and now coaches their Under 19 team. One of the odd fascinations I have about football is the songs that teams play when they score a goal. For Cercle Bruges their choice is one of my favourite songs, Chelsea Dagger by the Fratellis. If you are a fan of tea (as in the drink) you should also stop by the tea shop Javana where Leen works. You can read more about their wonderful little B&B on their website here.
COSY ROOMS AND A WONDERFUL BREAKFAST
Just to tell you more about their B&B. They have 2 lovely bedrooms that are warm, cosy and well decorated with lots of white and crisp linen. Jimmy and Leen are perfect hosts who take the trouble to find out what their guests like when they arrive. They will then happily sit and mark up a map with all the best bits of Bruges on it (many of their tips to us are shared here). They also make one of the most gorgeous breakfasts I have ever had in a hotel or B&B. First of all, Leen’s smothies are just awesome, freshly made and the perfect start to anyone’s day. They go out early and get fresh local bread, which they serves with meat, cheese and jam from local suppliers. The location of their B&B is pretty perfect as well. It’s just a 10-15 minute walk from the centre through a lovely peaceful part of the city with some really cute streets.
