Passive house in quiet, residential neighbourhood close to Bruges

Hi, we are looking to make an exchange this summer...
We are open for small exchange during the year nearby.
Are you interested? Just let us know.

We've build our home about 10 years ago, in a quiet neighbourhood, just outside the city of Bruges. To be honest it's still a work in progress as we do all of the work our selves. As you can realise, we are very proud of that. We are now in the final stage, in where we still have some work in the bedrooms.
With a lot of love and hard work, we progress every year.
We like our house to be tidy and clean. And we appreciate our exchange partners to be the same way.

The groundfloor has a spacious livingroom (+TV, DVD,...), fully equiped kitchen, pantry, toilet and gives access to the garden.
The first floor has 4 bedrooms (1 large one with double bed and three smaller bedrooms with a single bed) and a bathroom and toilet.
There is lots of free private parking in front of the house.

Our house is situated in a dead end street, so it's very quiet. Our children always played in the street. In our neighbourhood there are 3 nice playgrounds close by. Those are very nice for the kids.
Only 5 minutes away there are 2 bakeries, 2 grocery shops, a butcher,... Everything you need, closeby.

On our terras you can enjoy our small but edible / permaculture garden. There are loads of fruit trees (apples, pears, cherries), berries, nuts,... Soon (spring 2020) we are welcoming some chickens, so we can also enjoy their company and of course their eggs :-), ...

We have a inside/outside cat - ROXY- since december 2016, she just needs food and water and won't bother you. At night time, she sleeps outside.

It takes only a 30 minutes walk / 15 minutes bike to the heart of Bruges.
There is public transportation close by. Every 20 minutes there is a bus going to the city.
The city of Bruges has lots to offer. Culture, culinary, history,...
Check out the website for more information and for planning your stay.

From our house it's only a 20 minute drive to the coast, in Knokke you can enjoy the beach or go for a beautifull walk in 't Zwin. www.zwin.be

You want to do a citytrip? It's a 30 minute drive to Ghent or the Netherlands (Sluis), a 60 minutes drive to France, Brussels, Antwerp,...
