Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Proposals for an exchange for the summer 2020 are welcomed ! We would be looking for UK, in July.

Rural, spacy & child-friendly six bedroom house, recently renovated with all facilities, public transport nearby. Very well suited for children of all ages & adults alike, where up to eight people can easily find a place to sleep or eat. Large sunny garden (with trampoline, pool, tree hut, play-caravan, climbing tower) and terrace with bbq. We love cooking - the kitchen is well equiped.
Many Belgian historical cities (Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent, Leuven, Liège, Namur, europes cultural capital Mons, Bruges, ...) are within one hour drive or train. Amsterdam or Paris can be visited in a (long) daytrip.

Our house is situated at the edge of a quite and rural village, overlooking wonderful landscapes from the kitchen and living room. It is inviting for hikes in the woods, heather and river areas. The village is overlooked by a 200y+ windmill. The small 800yr old town Aarschot where you can find all facilities (swimming pool, shops, restaurants, pubs, ...) is at 2,5 km. At 5 min drive there is a lake with beach.

Our 2 cats appriciate food and love - we can take care of any of your pets if that would be helpful.
