Zeeuws Vlaanderen Travel Guide


Welcome to Zeeuws Vlaanderen. Planning a nice weekend escape in the Netherlands near the beach? Our southern province Zeeland is your friend. We enjoyed several long weekends in Zeeuws Vlaanderen (Zeelandic Flanders), the southernmost region of the province of Zeeland in south-western Netherlands. A quite and not yet so touristy area with cute little villages, local Appelaere appel juice and brocante vintage shops. Zeeuws Vlaanderen is also close to Belgium so you can even squeeze in a day trip to beautiful Bruges if you have time. Scroll down below to find the best restaurants, shops, bars and breakfast places in the area. I am sure you'll fall in love too.
