A Bohemian B & B in Belgium

March 29, 2013

Don’t be fooled: Le Jardin Bohemien may sound like an arboretum, but it’s actually a cafe with a B&B.

Situated in a 17th century building in the center of Ghent, Le Jardin Bohemien is owned and operated by Jean Pierre De Taeye and Kristine Dehond. The couple, who are passionate about art (he’s an interior designer and she’s a sculptor), decided to renovate the old building and turn it into a cafe, B&B, and home for themselves and their two young children. The cafe is full of vintage furniture and goods, most of which are at offer for their guests. For more information, visit Le Jardin Bohemien.
