Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We live in a quite neighbourhood close to parks, train station (also international trains), public transport and the highway. Even though we live close to the city center (15 minutes by bike or public transport) our neighbourhood feels a little bit like a village in the city. People know eachother, we have lovely neighbours.

Antwerp has a beautiful midieval city center with cobble stone streets, grand town houses and a famous cathedral where you can see some paintings from Rubens.

Antwerp is perfectly located to explore the rest of Belgium and the neighbouring countries. Gent, Brugge, Bruxelles is only 30 minutes away by train or car. You can reach Paris with the Thalys train in 2h, Londen with Eurostar in 2h, Amsterdam with Thalys in 2h.

The 'sinjoren' are known for being bon-vivants. Antwerp has numerous good restaurants, cosy bars, cute bistros and great terraces.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

Open for suggestions!

We have three small children that have a lot of energy, so we would love to have an outside area for them to play.

Our house is almost 100 years old, and sometimes has it own character: some doors shreek, some handles need a special touch. But that is all part of the charm!
