House in Gent, Belgium

Looking for an exchange summer 2019! We would like to spend our holidays close to nature and at less then 1 day driving distance.

We are a family of four living in Ghent, a charming historic and lively city in Belgium.

We are sure you’ll find out why we like living here. It’s close enough to the city center, but far enough to be spacious and quiet. Just hop on the tram that stops around the corner, or cycle 10 minutes to discover Ghent. In the evenings, enjoy a good Belgian beer at our terrace.

Other city’s like Bruges, Antwerp and Brussels can easily be reached within less then an hour. The ‘countryside’ is excellent for easy hiking and cycling.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Brussels airport - 70 km

We live central enough to have all facilities nearby.
Yet we're just far enough from the city's buzz to relax in the garden.

Check here what's around the corner:
http://home.scarlet.be/jacobs/Around_the_Corner.html

The city centre can by easily reached by bike (10 minutes) or by tram (10 minutes, stop at 100m from our doorstep).
As Ghent is a vibrant city, there's a virtually infinite choice for all interests:

And since Belgium is just a small country, many other appealing places are within short distance:
