We welcome all suggestions, but are bound to school holidays. We love to travel to places we haven't seen before, so feel free to contact us. Paris and Barcelona have stolen our hearts. Suggestions of these cities we will (almost) always accept depending on timing.
We live in an old apartment build in 1937. We have a separate livingroom and kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, etc. , a small bathroom, seperate toilet. There are 3 bedrooms (one with babybed) for 4 people, (+baby) and can arrange an additional bed. Our kitchen and bathroom are recently renovated, the rest of the place is still in a mixed art deco and seventies style. In our building there are many children, so quiet night time is respected.
We are at a top though quiet location, only a 5 minute walk from the central train station which is voted the most beautiful of Europe, the Antwerp zoo, Chocolate nation (the worlds largest chocolate museum) and comic station (indoor theme parc). We live in the heart of the city at an excellent starting point to see the city with its cathedral, museums etc, There are many restaurants, chinatown and a movie theatre in walking distance (10 mins). The main shopping street is at 10 minutes walk from our place.
There are also some other cities in reach by train like Bruges, a Unesco world heritage site (74mins) Ghent (55 mins), Brussels (39 mins) Paris (2h by Thallys) Amsterdam (1h by thallys).
Me my two boys travel together, so we are interested in places with some childrens stuff or toys. We have at our place lots of toys and things handy for children. My oldest is a little concerned about his lego though ;-) We also have a bike with children's seat. A car is not necessary in Antwerp. When we travel by car you can use our indoor parking space. When flying our car could be used.
We love to welcome you and show our city to you. We will ensure our exchange partner's home is well taken care of just like we expect our home to be looked after.
