Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Medieval heritage, delicious gastronomy, lovely markets and easy access to Bruges, Brussels, and Paris.

WELCOME IN LEUVEN!

Leuven railway station: 10 min by foot - Brussels Airport: 14 min by train

Our house is situated within a 10 min walk of the historical center of Leuven, in a quiet neighbourhood. It is a three-level city house, with an open plan living area and a new kitchen. We love cooking so you will you find everything you need if you like to prepare a meal or organize a dinner. We have four bedrooms (one kingsize bed, three single beds),office space, and a bathroom with shower. The kitchen opens to a terrace and a small garden with a trampoline, some fruit trees, our bantams and 5 rabbits.
We do not have cabel/tv but we do have a dvd player with dvds (mainly English) and a lot of board games.

We keep our house tidy and clean and find it important to treat material and belongings with care. We are in search for a family with the same mindset.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Do you like medieval heritage but not tons of tourists? Then Leuven is the perfect place! It offers you Unesco World Heritage (beguinages), gothic townhall and cobble stoned markets, silent abbeys and beautiful churces - all within walking distance. Moreover, Leuven is ideally situated if you want to explore other medieval gems like Brussels (20 min), Antwerp (1h), or Bruges (1h30). The train is a 5 min walk from our house and brings you very convenient to every city in Belgium.
Would you like to see more of Europe but have a relaxing house to come home to after your trip? Then our house is the perfect spot! The highspeed train in Brussels brings you in no time to Paris (1h25), Amsterdam (2h), or London (1h45).
Are you a food-lover? Leuven offers you three weekly markets, and tons of restaurants and bistros ranging from family brasseries to Michelin star gastronomy.
Or maybe the kids prefer the adventure parc (free entrance), the animal parc, or the swimming paradise? It is up to you!

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

From our house, it is a short walk to dozens of great restaurants, bistro´s and markets. You can visit medieval treasures, gothic churches, or walk in the woods nearby. You can wander through cobblestone streets and experience the silence of the Beguinage (Unesco World Heritage). Enjoy the botanical garden, the mystical abbeys, or jump on the train and explore Brussels - Europe´s capital! Or visit Bruges, the Venice of the North and experience a boat trip on the small waterways throughout the city. Taste delicious Belgian chocolate and learn more in the Chocolate museum or go to a micro brewery and learn about how to brew marvellous beers! Or take a daytrip to the coast, the Ardennes or even Paris.
For the children, there are several playgrounds within a 10min walk, there is a great adventure park (free entrance) with open air swimming pool, an indoor playground, a swim paradise, a city Museum with kids workshops, and we have a trampoline in the garden

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We find it important to take good care of our house and of your house and the children are learned to treat possessions and equipment with gentle care. We are in search for a family with the same mindset.
Shoes and smoking are not allowed in the house. We like to keep our house clean and tidy and we will do the same with your house. Our rabbits hopes to be feeded :).
We had several exchanges in the past (Paris, Versailles, Vancouver, Vancouver Island, Waspik, Dresden, Stockholm, Boncelles, Helsinki, Freudenstadt, Altensteig, Mariestad, Bruges; Tecklenburg, Kristinehamn, Berlin (x2), Eschbach. We can provide you with references.
We have a large box of information with suggestions for trips, restaurants and outings. We also have a house book with all necessary information. And we welcome you with a box filled with Belgian goodies ;-).
Welcome in Leuven!
