A large house in the center of historic and buoyant Leuven

We live in a big house in the centre of Leuven, a historic university city, where there will 2 cats, 2 gerbils, 1 chicken and 1 canary waiting for you.
A large house, 5 bedrooms, over 5 floors (steps!, no elevator!) sleeps comfortable up to 8-10 persons. Winter terrace, garden, in city centre. Leuven is a historic university city, always buoyant with lots of historic places and architecture. Less than 1h from Brussels, Antwerp, Bruges, Dinant( A.Sax), the seaside and the woods in the Ardennes. Less than 3h from Amsterdam, London, Paris, Köln, ... .

We also have a large terrain of 12ha in the forest on the border with France, surrounded by 2 rivers, with a big lake, a yurt, a sauna. A real back-to-nature experience as there is no electricity, GSM coverage or running water. But in the middle of the forests, lake, fire, woods, ... This is also available for rent in non-simultaneous exchanges. But when we exchange with you, you have full access to the yurt for your period of stay as well.

I am traveling with my 2 children (17,13) and our labrador.

Let us know if this can interest you ! (ps we travel by car as we take our dog along, so there will be no car exchange)
Kind regards, katrien

About Our Family

Hi ! I am a single mum with 3 lovely kids and a labrador. We have a lot of travel experience, both home exchanging (yearly since 18years, so 18+ exchanges as we like to exchange during shorter holidays as well), as back to basics backpacking. You'll find travel artefacts all over the house. From very nearby experiences to very far way, very cold and very warm. Our bestestest experience however that as a family we prefer above all others was Finland. Though we liked Hawaii also very much, and Cuba, and Columbia, and just the nearby ardennes, our the coast North of France, Scotland, .... You see, we love to travel and lend out our place to give other travellers the same experience. Welcome ! Katrien, Lars, Jo and Noor

Ps we have a lot of animals: a Labrador dog, 2 cats, bird, chickens, gerbils. So if you are allergic, we are not the good family to exchange with ! But if you love animals, we are the good family to exchange with ;-)
