1 story house in lichtervelde, Belgium

Our house in situated in a quiet street, looking out on a meadow. It is built in 1992 in a rather modern style. We have an open living space with a sitting area, a dining area and an open plan kitchen. Downstairs we also have a toilet, an office, a store room (food) and a utility room (washing machine, dryer, fridge, freezer,…) The dining area has a French window opening on to the patio and the garden. There is a garden shed (2 bikes (male/female) and 1 e-bike (female). Next to the house there’s a carport.
Upstairs there is a small office, one double bedroom and 2 single ones. There’s also a bathroom (shower, bath and toilet).
The village has several nearby shops (Delhaize, Lidl, Spar) and a few bakeries and butchers. You ‘ll also find some farm shops (meat, vegetables, strawberries, dairy …) in the neighbourhood.
Our home is close to the Belgian coast (Ostend, Zeebrugge, Knokke, …) and the historic towns of Bruges (30 km), Ypres (50 km), Veurne (45 km) and Ghent (60 km). There’s an easy access to the motorway (5 min.) Lichtervelde also has a railway station (5 min’ walk from our house) connecting with all the major cities in Belgium. You reach the North of France in 30 min by car.
We‘ve already had several exchanges over the years (Barcelona, Quebec, Tallinn, Malaga). The first one with our 3 children, but the rest just the two of us. One of our daughters lives in the neighbouring city of Torhout and would be able to help if necessary. So would our neighbours Dorine and Patrick.
We have a cat, so we would like to exchange with a family who wouldn’t mind to take care of him. In summer time he lives mostly outside and comes inside only for food.
