The natural beauty of the territory

Located on the East side of Belgium, the East Flanders region has some of the best natural spectacles in the country. By renting a cottage in East Flanders you’re signing up for an unforgettable experience. But what makes this reagan so special?

Well, the flora and fauna of East Flanders is incredibly diverse and it’s perfect for a chill holiday, away from busy streets and noisy places. The variety od natural parks and attractions are the reason you should consider spending your next holiday in this side of Belgium. Places such as the Buggenhout forest and Natuurreservaat Scheldemeersen are great if you're in need of some fresh air.

But one of the most emblematic places of East Flanders is the Bourgoyen-Ossemeersen Nature Reserve. By renting a cottage around the reserve you’ll experience wonderful calmness and you’ll be surrounded by extensive marshy grassland, giving you the chance to admire the unspoilt nature. The reserve is an important habitat for tens of thousands of birds that you can witness flying around the afternoon sky if you manage to go there during their migration period. When it comes to the fauna of the region there are hundreds of plant species surrounding your cottage. You can also encounter foxes, badgers, weasels, beavers if you roam around the woodlands.

What can you do during your stay at a cottage in East Flanders?

If you’re one of those people who prefer to stay active during their holiday then you’ll be happy to find out that by renting a cottage in East Flanders you’re actually getting the ideal base for an active break. Nevertheless, this part of Europe is rather flat so don’t expect high mountain peaks. However, be ready for excellent walking routes and biking trails. Due to the flatness of the territory it’s become incredibly popular to use a bike as a means of transport. That’s why it’s also very easy to rent one if you’re in East Flanders for a vacation.

Remember to bring your binoculars when you come for your vacation in East Flanders. By scanning the horizon you can experience great birdwatching moments. As we already mentioned, this side of Europe is flatter than the rest of it so you can see far ahead of your cottage in East Flander. If you decide to spend your next family vacation there, then take the chance to educate the children about the wondrous world of European nature by seeing it first-hand.

Another great activity for kids (and adults alike) is to simply explore the local forests. You can also hire a guide who knows the routes so you can learn about the flora and fauna more in depth. But you don’t necessarily have to do that as the trails are safe and the chances of getting lost or encountering a dangerous wild animal are low. Additionally, during the winter you will have to be more creative with coming up with activities as the weather conditions don’t allow much outside freedom. In that sense, let’s talk more about what the weather is like on the East side of Belgium.

What type of weather to expect?

Similar to most of the countries in Europe, Belgium has four seasons with a temperate climate. However, the country can never get too warm or too hot. In the winter the temperatures rarely go below 0 degrees, while the summers are also relatively mild with average temperature around 23 degrees. This is exactly the best time to visit East Flanders.

If you’re one of those people who are trying to escape the summer heat during the months from May to September, then East Flanders is a great holiday option for you. In that region hot days are rare, however it’s warm enough to spend your whole day outside in the woods or simply on your porch of your rented cottage. Nevertheless, keep in mind that rains are also quite common even during the summer, while it could also get very windy.

If you’ve decided to spend your winter holiday in a cottage in East Flanders, then prepare for a mild but rainy vacation. Winters in Belgium are cold but not freezing, it’s mostly cloudy and sunshine is rare. It might sound a bit sad to some people but it could also make the atmosphere very cozy. If snuggling up in your warm blanket with a hot chocolate is your cup of tea then you should definitely visit East Flanders in the winter.

When it comes to spring and autumn, they’re cool and cloudy. Spring is less rainy than Autumn but still quite cold especially in East Flanders which is a territory closer to the sea. But regardless if you want to have a warm and sunny or color and cloudy vacation one thing's for sure - renting a cottage in East Flanders is an unforgettable experience.
