I M P O R T A N T ! For the same exchange period and if you like it, you may dispose of our two homes (Brussels and/or Vezin, look at the pictures), that means you can enjoy your stay in Belgium from a rural to a urban environment or vice versa :
1. Our home in Brussels is located in a quiet and popular neighbourhood, near a green park and at only 15 minutes by foot of the Grand Place, main museums and most important commercial areas. The home is large with a living room, kitchen and dining area, 4 bedrooms, bathroom and an enjoyable and sunny terrace.
2. Our house in the countryside, a picturesque and peaceful village near Namur, capital of the Walloon region, french speaking side of Belgium, is an old (late XIX century), renovated and sunny three-storeyed stone house with character. This is a family house with living room, kitchen and dining area, 4 bedrooms, bathroom and terrace. The garden is large and green (approximately 3000 square meters) with a small wood and a vegetable biogarden.
Both houses are fully equipped with washing machine, dish washer, microwave oven, freezer, video recorder et DVD player, stereo. . . and of course computer and Wifi access to Internet.
Children will find there plenty of fun toys to play with.
1. With its human size, Brussels is also a cosmopolitan and multicultural capital, with topnotch museums, a delightful architectural mix of Gothic and Art Nouveau, a thriving restaurant and nightlife scene, and tempting chocolate shops on seemingly every corner.
Moreover, from Brussels you can go to historical Belgian cities like Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp, Namur within 1Hr, or Paris (80 min. by train), London or Amsterdam (within less than 2Hr by train), Köln, Luxemburg, etc.
2. The village of Ville-en-Warêt is a peaceful place located close to Namur, the gate of the Belgian Ardennes, and you'll be surprised by all the things you can do in the area. It's also the gate to the Ardennes.
Within ten minutes drive there is always a museum, a castle (amongst others, the Citadel of Namur! ) , historic residences, family attractions or even an archeo-prehistoric site (actually 2 sites) within reach of your curiosity. Whether you want a fun holiday or an educational holiday, the progamme for children is just as comprehensive as for the adults. Other ingredients than cultural life may be easily incorporated for a totally relaxing stay: nature (valleys, rivers, forests) , or sporting activities. Footpaths of long and short distances stretch in every direction. Not so sure about the walking? Why not try riding a mountain bike? Our 5 bikes await for you.
Nonsimultaneous home swaps and car exchange can be considered if you request it.
