Tnia and her family have an amazing large townhouse in Brussels. There was so much space and plenty of rooms to spread out in. The Jacuzzi bath was one of our favourite features. The cats were lovely too. Tania left us maps and city information and was very communicative before and during the exchange. We used Brussels as our hub and went to Brugge and Ypres on two separate day trips and it was perfect. Getting into Brussels centre was easy too on the bus or tram. Lovely family, great food and history and beer and chocolate. Fabulous trip. Thanks for making it possible, Tania.

Nous avons fort apprécié notre échange avec Tania, Felippe et leurs filles. La maison est magnifique ! alliant le charme de l'ancien et tout l'équipement moderne qui convient à une famille qui aime cuisiner, se divertir et passer de bons moments ensemble. Les transports en commun sont au coin de la rue (bus, tram) et nous ont permis de visiter Bruxelles et d'en apprécier le charme et surtout l'accueil des Bruxellois tellement sympathique. Nous avons découvert de nombreux petits restaurants, dégusté du chocolat de grande qualité (spécialité oblige), Il y a tant à faire dans cette ville. Merci à Tania et à toute la famille d'avoir préparé avec beaucoup de soin leur belle maison, nous y avions tant d'espace ! Chacun de nous a pu profiter de ce long week end Pascal dans cette belle demeure. La décoration est vitaminée, les plafonds hauts à moulures nous ont ravis , le jardin avec ses murs en pierres est un endroit idéal pour lézarder au soleil, lire ou savourer de bons repas en famille, c'est un oasis de verdure à quelques pas de la ville. Nous avons adoré ! et reviendrons sans hésitation si l'occasion se présentait et recommandons un échange avec cette famille. Nos 3 chats ont été dorlotés et nous avons retrouvé notre maison dans un état impeccable. We had a fantastic exchange with Tania, Felippe and their 3 daughters. The house is fantastic with a lot of charms, a lot of space and the very nice decoration. we loved it ! the house is so well equiped for all the family, and the garden and terrace were a great place to stay and enjoy this space of nature just at the corner of the city of Bruxelles. The public tranportation are just a few steps from the house (bus or tram) and we used them to discover Bruxelles, no need to use the car. We discovered a lot of good restaurants, and we savoured very good chocolates (of course). This house is a fantastic mixture of charm with high ceilings with moulding and all the equipments of the modern life. Tania and family prepared their house for us with a lot of care and we found our house in an impeccable state. Thanks to Tania and all the family, we recommend strongly this family for an exchange and shall return with pleasure if the opportunity arises

Keith from Naples said

We have had 17 exchanges and this was one of our favorites. We were fortunate to get to know Tania, Felipe, and their 3 daughters for a couple of days before they flew to our home. Extremely cordial. We have stayed in touch with them since our exchange and they feel like family to us. The home is enormous and conveniently located to the bus/train stop. The neighborhood is packed with all the shops and restaurants you would need. There is a park near their home which is more like a national forest. Bicycling and walking through it was a pleasant respite from city life. Brussels is our favorite3 city in Europe since this exchange and we have been to most of the major cities. It is easy to get around by car, bus, or walking. I highly recommend Brussels and the Vega's home. We hope to return soon. Keith Barber Naples, Florida USA

We spent two memorable weeks in the Vega's wonderfully well-equipped and stylish home. Their handsome town house is brilliantly located in a street that is quiet but at the heart of an area that is full of vibrant cafes and shops. It is also within quick reach of all the attractions in central Brussels. But it is also easy to get to the Brussels ring road, making it the perfect base to explore other city such as Ghent, Antwerp, Namur and even Aachen. Having the use of the Vega's garage and fleet of bicycles was a useful luxury. Their house is beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean (thanks in part to the unseen cleaning lady Elisabeth). Their cats, Chole and Chico, are a delight and easy to look after. The home comes with Apple TV and well stocked collection of movies and a kitchen with every gadget you could possibly need (the bossy bleeping of the fridge, oven and microwave helpfully kept us in line). The Vegas are very generous hosts and gave us good tips on how to get the best out of the area. They were also impeccably considerate house guests in our London home. Thanks for great exchange.
