Those who are following my blog since a few years, will have noticed that in September 2009 I wrote a blogpost about the opening of the new showroom of Belgian renowned antiques dealers Brigitte & Alain Garnier (click HERE to read this blogpost).
Years ago the Garnier family bought the old property ‘Vaucelleshof’, used to be an abbey with about 10 monks living there. The family restored the house with passion and with respect for its history.
‘Vaucelleshof’ is wonderfully situated in the green and open surroundings of the medieval village of Damme, only 10 minutes from Bruges. The property now consists out of buildings of the 17th, 18th and 19th century, all carefully restored.

Who doesn’t remember the cover of Veranda Magazine March 2011, where the dining room of the Garnier family was shown. Or the orangerie of Vaucelleshof that made it on the cover of the gorgeous book Quiet Living.
‘Vaucelleshof’ is not only the residence of the Garnier family, but also accomodates the showroom, full of antiques!
To discover the antiques collection, please visit their website http://www.garnier.be.
The property with its facilities is even rented out for several events as weddings, parties, photoshoots and seminars.
Four years after the opening of their antiques showroom, the Garniers are pleased to announce the opening of their Luxury B&B ‘Vaucelles’ – The Little Monastery.
The small hotel currently counts 3 rooms. Two more rooms will be finished in 2014.
All rooms are decorated by Brigitte Garnier.
