Nice familyhouse in Belgium, Brussels

Dear Home Exchangers,

We are experienced exchangers (more than 20 years) and live in a nice house in the city, well located in a quiet neighbourhood between the center and the green belt. Although it is a house in the row, it has some rural atmosphere with the garden (with a little pond). The house has three floors:
* at the ground floor: one large space with kitchen, living and dining room, toilet;
* at the first floor: two large and one small bedroom, toilet and bathroom with shower,
* at the second floor: a large bedroom, a large room with 2 nice terraces, toilet and shower. 
The house is equiped with central heating. 
The garden is about 6 m x 25 m.  We have a set of garden furniture, a barbeque and 4 bicycles to use.

If you are interested for this offer, we invite you to contact us as soon as possible.

Yours truly,

Werner & Annemie VAN MIEGHEM-PIJCKE

Our Neighbourhood

We live in a quiet neighbourhood in a lovely house with garden.
We live in Oudergem, that is one of the 19 communes of Brussels, at about 2 km from the center of Brussels. The house is situated between the city-center and the "Zoniënwoud" (the wood), in a quiet neigbourhood near the university.  Oudergem has each week several general markets and fleemarkets and some nice neighbourhoods to discover (with playgrounds, parks,...). 

The city of Brussels has of course a lot ofattractions : cultural, architectural, parcs, restaurants, café's, shops... These you can visit easily by public transport.  Buses and subway are at 3 min. from our house.

Brussels is in the center of Belgium.  You can/should visit other Belgian cities like Louvain, Waterloo, Ghent, Bruges, Antwerp.  But also the Belgian coast and the woods of the Ardennes. These are at one houre distance by car or train. In our library and documentation, you will find a lot of information about the attractions of Brussels and Belgium, also for children.

About Our Family

We are Annemie, 51 years, librarian, Werner, 50 years, working in an housing association, and two boys (Thijs, 20 years, and Bert, 18 years). 
After more than 20 years, we can say we are experienced home exchangers. For the families (with children between 19 and 2 years) who stayed in our house, it was always a good experience. We prefer non-smokers.

We have a cat, Luna, and two chickens. They don’t need a lot attention, just food from time to time. And the chicken give you nice eggs !

Lifestyle

You can call Werner an urban farmer. His garden is rather small, but a paradise for animals and plants. He prefers long walks in nature. Annemie likes more culture and architecture. In her freetime she's guide in Brussels. In our library you'll find a lot of books about the city, its history and monuments.
Thijs studies bio engineer and plays football with his friends. Bert studies informatics and plays gitar.
