Staying in Lille

Lille is the capital of Flanders with more than 300 000 inhabitants close to the Belgian border and the English Channel, at 90 min from London and 30 min from Brussels. Lille is defined as a big city but a city that feels like home. It is either a city center or a big village; you can go from side to side on a 40min walk on its cobbled alleyways among its typically Flemish architecture and cosy restaurants. Renowned for its friendliness, Lille wows visitors with its lofty bell towers, art collection at Palais des Beaux-Arts (considered the second largest general-interest museum in France, after the Louvre) and famous stuffed waffles at its renown pâtisseries.
