French Flanders

~Jim's Tips~

Stretching along the Belgian border from Dunkerque (Duinkerke) towards Lille (Rijsel), the region of French Flanders (Frans Vlaanderen) has a unique ambiance and charm that in many ways reflects its Flemish roots rather than its more recent French history.

It is a small but culturally rich region and an area where I am fortunate enough to have a weekend home.

I hope my tips enable you to enjoy some of the maybe less obvious highlights in this most intriguing of regions.
