A B&B in my neighbourhood

If you ever plan to visit me in Belgium, then please read this post about a beautiful Bred & Breakfast in my neighbourhood, about 15min. drive from my home. I am sure you will love to stay there!

The beautiful B&B “Le Pavé” is located in the region of The Flemish Ardennes, surrounded by a picturesque décor with its shelving skyline and typical cobbled streets. So the region is very famous for the Belgian cycle-racing and in particular for the ‘Tour of Flanders’.

Peter and Angelique’s farm lies in the middle of the ‘Tour of Flanders’ route. The spirit of the cycle-racing is subtly present in their B&B. Peter Van Petegem (the owner) was a famous Belgian cycle-racer.

The name “Le Pavé” refers to the victory of Peter in the Paris-Roubaix  tour in 2003. Le Pavé (French word that means street stone) alludes to the cobble stones that are omnipresent in the Flemish Ardennes.

The Paris-Roubaix 2003 trophy of Peter = a cobble stone. It has become the symbol of the B&B “Le Pavé”.
