Belgium is 'perfect' for holidaying Brits

Posted by Linda Davidson

Anyone considering taking their caravan and Thetford caravan fridges to Belgium have been advised that the country is about more than just city breaks.

Francoise Scheepers, UK & Ireland director for Belgian Tourist Office - Brussels and Wallonia, said that Brussels, Antwerp and Bruges are renowned destinations for city breaks but the country does offer much more.

"More and more people are aware of the full potential of our destination," she said.

"[Belgium] is not only boasting fascinating reminiscences of history, it also offers one of the best lifestyles on this planet, and the art of welcoming … is more and more appreciated," Ms Scheepers said.

She added that Brussels and Wallonia are an affordable and accessible destination for Brits, with lots on offer from unspoilt landscapes to motor racing.

According to STR Global, the Belgium hotel market has seen modest but positive changes in revenue per available room (RevPAR) across all significant markets during the first half of 2011.
