Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Looking for homeswap 15-30 August.
Spacious renovated farmhouse, ideal for family with kids. Our house was recently renovated and offers plenty of space. The old barn has been converted into a living space, kitchen, bathroom, office ( possible to put a crib) (all groundfloor) and playroom / guest bedroom (sofa bed) on the mezzanine. The former house has now 3 bedrooms and a bathroom (master bedroom and bathroom downstairs). In the former cowshed is an apartment (not part of the exchange). There is a large south facing garden with terrace, trampoline, swing, slide and basketball hoop. In the summer we also put a large intex swimmingpool (3,5m diameter) on the terrace. The garden also houses a restored bakehouse. Behind the garden is a pear orchard. At the front of the house is an enclosed courtyard with a covered terrace. Cars can be parked on the courtyard.

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

Onze woning ligt in het mooie Haspengouw; de fruitstreek van Belgie met z'n romantische kastelen en typische boerderijen. De streek is gekend voor z'n fietstoerisme, en voor de lekkere streekproducten, zoals natuurlijk fruit, maar ook stroop, streekbiertjes, Hasseltse jenever, ... Bezoeken aan een lokale brouwerijk of aan de jeneverstokerij zijn dan ook zeer aan te raden. Ook kan je de legende van de Bokkerijders achternagaan in onze streek, of een bezoek brengen aan het openlucht museum Bokrijk in Genk. Tongeren is de oudste stad van België en is international gekend voor z'n antiekmarkt. Je kan er ook het Gallo-Romeins museum bezoeken. Hasselt is een leuke shoppingstad, en in Genk kom je meer te weten over het mijnverleden. Ook de steden Sint-Truiden en Bilzen zijn zeker de moeite waard. Op redelijke afstand liggen ook de mooie steden Maastricht, Aken, Luik, Leuven, Antwerpen,... Vanaf het station in Alken (6km) kun je vele van deze bestemmingen bereiken.

Our house is located in the beautiful Haspengouw; the fruit region of Belgium with its romantic castles and typical farms. The region is known for its cycling and for the delicious local products, such as of course fruit, but also syrups, regional beers, Hasselt gin ... Visits to a local brew rich or the distillery are therefore highly recommended. Also you can go chase the legend of the 'Buckriders' in our area, or visit the outdoor museum Bokrijk in Genk. Tongeren is the oldest town in Belgium and is internationally known for its antiques market. You can also visit the Gallo-Roman museum. Hasselt is a nice shopping city, and in Genk you learn more about the mine history. The cities of Sint-Truiden and Bilzen are well worth a visit. At a reasonable distance are also the beautiful cities of Maastricht, Aachen, Liege, Leuven, Antwerp, ... From the station in Alken (6km) you can reach many of these destinations.
