This stunning example of architecture with a high-quality finish provides a unique vibe, right in the middle of the polders in Belgium. 
The rural estate has a rich history going back to 1785. The Austrian emperor Joseph II built ‘Fort Hazegras’ to protect the new Hazegrass lock. The Germans occupied the fort during WW I & II. The 5 stone bunkers that encircle the grounds are silent witnesses to those turbulent times.

Venue Setting

This stunning example of architecture with a high-quality finish provides a unique vibe, right in the middle of the polders of Knokke-Heist in Belgium.

The contemporary top-class architecture with rough materials and a clean design reflects the rustic character of the grounds.

The rural estate has a rich history going back to 1785. The Austrian emperor Joseph II built ‘Fort Hazegras’ to protect the new Hazegrass lock. The Germans occupied the fort during WW I & II. The 5 stone bunkers that encircle the grounds are silent witnesses to those turbulent times.

The villa combines rustic stonework with a clean design, high glass walls and industrial charm. Subtle luxury with a hint of nostalgia.

The 5 rooms combine rough natural materials with a refined finish. The perfect place to relax with a view over the bunkers and the polders.

The Scene:
The rural estate has a rich history going back to 1785. The Austrian emperor Joseph II built ‘Fort Hazegras’ to protect the new Hazegrass lock. The Germans occupied the fort during WW I & II. The 5 stone bunkers that encircle the grounds are silent witnesses to those turbulent times.

Now the bunkers are a shelter for our chickens, bees and sheep. 

This stunning example of architecture with a high-quality finish provides a unique vibe, right in the middle of the polders in Belgium. 

Chill out in the sauna or the garden with its phenomenal view over the WW I & II bunkers. In the meantime, the kids will tire themselves out in the entertainment room or the pool.

Knokke-Heist is a beautiful rural area at the North-Eastern seaside of the Belgian coast. The area is adjacent to the Dutch border, the two countries separated by the Zwin nature reserve. Originally, Knokke-Heist arose as a result of the construction of dikes to protect the area of the Zwin sea-arm.

Design:
The place has been kept as serene as possible: black, white and gray predominate. With the help of architects Govaert & Vanhoutte from Bruges, interior designer Anversa from Antwerp and landscape architect Leon Van Haesebrouck we turned the place into a house with guest rooms.

We opted for a kitchen in black powder-coated steel from Danish brand Vipp, which has a legacy in steelwork. The black kitchen was an ideal match for the concrete details of the villa.

If you are looking for an exclusive place to stay with friends or family, The Bunkers is the perfect location.

The Bunkers

Burkeldijk 18, 8300 Knokke-Heist, Belgium



Need a total respite from the workaday world? This recently opened, visually stunning and perfectly restful bed-and-breakfast is a welcome remedy for all your work-weary woes. The Bunkers will instantly transport you to a calm, spacious state of mind with its rustic-meets-high-design aesthetic and expansive surrounding landscape. In fact, you’ll feel like you’ve landed in the middle of the Belgian countryside (which indeed you have), although you’re still just a mere 15-minute drive from beautiful and buzzy Bruges (and other towns you’ve probably never heard of but will love). Take it from us: book a room here—or the whole house—and have the best of both worlds in this subtly luxurious, inviting and historical escape.
