The Salient 2 Group Accommodation


The Salient is a historical building in the centre of Ypres that was transformed into a group accommodation in 2006. It is central located, only 160m away from the market square and accommodates groups of up to 137 people. It can also take 2 smaller groups.

The Salient has 2 dining rooms (Salient 1:90p and Salient 2:50p), 1 large games room with lots of facilities, a garden and 31 bedrooms of different sizes.

If 2 groups are sharing, both have their own dining room and separate stairs. On the bedroom floors, the groups (max 2) are kept separate on each floor as much as possible. So whilst Salient can be seen as 1 large building, we use the name "Salient 1" and "Salient 2" to make clear that 2 groups can live quite separate in this big house.
