We spent two weeks in this beautiful home one past summer. We loved every minute. The home is beautifully renovated and very comfortable. The location is like a postcard. White horses graze in the pasture, with lush greenery and flowers everywhere. The horses and dogs are very friendly. My children spent much of their free time with the horses, dogs, and rabbits. The housekeeper comes every day to feed and care for the animals, so we always had someone there to help us if we needed it. There were many things to do. We would bike on the rural roads, or take short drives to local towns for market days or to get fresh bread and pastries. Huy, a local town, has a charming square with many restaurants, bakeries, and chocolate shops. Michele was even able to arrange a tour of a neighbor’s dairy farm. If you like city activities, Brussels, with its many sites and museums is an hour drive or train ride away. We especially enjoyed the Brussels music museum. We also visited local caves and parks. Michele had many brochures, maps, and pamphlets waiting for us in the home, which gave us many ideas for our vacation.
We were able to meet Frederic and Michelle and their family in Florida before we left. They are a wonderful family and we have remained in touch since our exchange.
