The small city of Eupen is the capital of Belgium's tiny German-speaking community, located in the country's Eastern Cantons. This unique part of Belgium is far off the tourist map but is well worth a visit for its great food and proximity to the Hautes Fagnes Nature Reserve. But even if Eupen didn't have these highlights, it would be worth visiting, simply to stay at the stunning B&B Julevi.
This beautifully decorated B&B is run by the warm and welcoming Mattens family. The rooms are spacious, particularly the ground floor room, which has its own private sitting room.
The dining room and common living room are accented by a stunning spiral staircase, which leads to several upstairs bedrooms.
In the summer, guests have access to a small terrace and formal garden, off the kitchen. Breakfasts are fresh and ample and the hosts are quick with suggestions for great places to eat, shop and visit in the area.
With rooms ranging in price from 75-95 euro, the B&B Julevi is a steal and a welcome escape from Belgium's larger cities.
