Vacation rentals in De Panne
De Panne, the leftmost corner of the Belgian coast. Close to the northern French border towns. A coastal town with plenty of activities, a beautifully laid out shopping street and a cozy Zeedijk brimming with terraces. In De Panne, there the dunes dance and the trees sway, for the prominent presence of nature is one of its greatest assets. There are also plenty of sporting opportunities. You go to De Panne to spend hours walking on the wide beach, beach sailing and enjoying the active outdoor life. In the listed Dumont neighborhood, you can soak up the same cottage style as on the North French Coast. The famous amusement park Plopsaland also has its home there.

The architecturally interesting and listed Dumont neighborhood is named after the architect Albert Dumont. He played a major role in the creation of the district in typical cottage style but the district also contains a distinctive regional character due to its brick architecture.
