In the area
Marie-Marae is situated far away from the hustle and bustle amidst the peace and greenery of a quiet neighbourhood with the beach at walking distance.
Across the house is a patch of woodland where our guests can take a leisurely stroll or jog, while the children play their hearts out in the woodland playground. Behind lies the largest stretch of dunes along the Belgian Coast. The beach is easy and safe to reach from the Koninklijke Baan via the wooden footbridge through the dunes.
There are lots of cosy little restaurants, a paper shop, grocery shop, bakery, chemist, GP, pedicure, etc. nearby as well. And De Haan village centre also hosts a weekly market on Wednesdays in the Vosseslag quarter (200 m away) which is also on on Mondays during the high season.
De Haan village centre, with its shops, restaurants and a playground for the children, is 1.5 km away from the house, but is easy to reach by bus or on the Coastal Tram which stops only 200 m away.
The location of the house along several cycling routes on the regional network makes it a great place to set off for a wonderful cycle ride through the surrounding polder landscape or to explore the surrounding greenery, sleepy villages and of course the coast itself.

Mountain bikers can turn to the woods, dunes or the beach for a thrill.
