Hidden Belgium: Summer lunch in a secret garden

Hidden Belgium: Summer lunch in a secret garden

Alix Aelterman serves healthy food in a beautiful old town house in Ghent where her father once ran his doctor’s surgery. She has also created a secret summer spot in the large garden behind the family house.

It’s a relaxed, romantic place for a weekend brunch or a picnic under the trees. And if it rains, you just move into a tent. Simple. Parents with small children love the concept.

You can also spend the night in Alix’s stylish B&B located in a former coach house with a view of the garden. Book at alixtablejardin.be.
