More and more people consider giving their life a new inversion by starting a guesthouse, either in their own country or abroad. There are no simple solutions for starters: the legislation is often vague, different in each country and even in each region. Dozens of other aspects have to be taken into account which can be different for everyone. The following brochure attempts to help starters by examining at these aspects in detail.
What are the directives/conditions In Belgium?
On Flemish level there is not yet a complete regulation for the running of guestrooms or a Bed & Breakfast. If you have 4 rooms or more, you also need a hotel license. Click here for more info

What are the directives/conditions in the Netherlands?
Just like in Belgium, there are no local laws and rules of application in the Netherlands. There is no recognition possible like in England or Ireland. The legislation depends on the municipality in which you wish to start your B&B. For more information, consult your local tourist information service.
