Would you like to stay in an authentic and charming house in Ypres? Well, let me welcome you in Ciepers Lodge. The house was built in 1930, shortly after the interbellum, in the typical rebuilding style with a slight modernistic touch. Originally the house was built in function of the ancient slaughterhouse, which has been demolished. The stairs, the doors and the wooden floors are still original. Recently we completely renovated the house into a spacious, warm and cosy holiday home. As the house gets sunshine all day, it bathes in light. So we suggest you to have a sit in the cosy veranda outside to relax and have a look outside.
Although the house is situated in the center of the city, the street is very rustique and silent. There is a free parking space next to the house, on the Minneplein (or translated in English: the ‘lovers-place’). The house is rented as a whole to your group or family, so can fully enjoy your privacy. If you’re a bit hungry or thirsty or if you have a late arrival, your neighbours (Hotel ARIANE) will serve you a fresh drink or nice breakfast, lunch, dinner or even deserts. Inside or in their beautiful garden.
Any questions? Don’t hesitate to contact me by text message or phone. I’m a vet, so I can be reached at any time. And since I am a vet, you can maybe imagine where the name Ciepers Lodge comes from? Well, Ciepers is one of the best known giant cats, a character from the cat’s parade. It has been held on the second Sunday of May since 1955. The parade commemorates an Ypres tradition from the Middle Ages in which cats were thrown from the belfry tower of the Cloth Hall to the town square below.
