Barak De Vinck
Barak De Vinck is an alternative holiday home near Ypres with an exceptional story. Leave your modern comforts behind and live in the rhythm of nature, just like 100 years ago. Just after the First World War, Baron Gaston de Vinck built a concrete emergency home to house his family as here returned to the region from France. Almost exactly 100 years on, Baron de Vinck’s unique barracks have been restored and are ready to accommodate you, your friends or your family. You will find everything you need for a comfortable stay in the barracks, including household goods, oil lamps, firewood, a water pump, and a perfect retro stove to heat the barracks and cook. Everything is there to be perfectly lodged as it was in 1919.
