Nuestra casa

Descripción de la casa que ofrecemos en intercambio

Our house is located just outside the historical center of Ghent. Ghent is Belgium's (or Europe's) best kept secret according to Lonely Planet :) It is a gorgeous medieval city with 2 rivers, a lively cultural scene and lots of recreational possibilities.

The house is a typical working-class row house from the 1920's, fully renovated some years ago. It is owned by two cats who graciously allow humans into their home ;)
- Kitchen, toilet, dining room and living room are on the ground floor. We also have a small, sunny patio.
- Office space and guest bedroom are on the first floor.
- Master bedroom and bathroom (with bath/shower) are on the second floor.

Descripción de nuestro barrio y la zona en que se encuentra

Our house is located in a residential area just outside the gorgeous historical center of Ghent.
- around the corner: park, playground, shops, nice bar and coffee place, ...
- 8 minutes by bus or bicycle to the historical center (or walk alongside the canal)
- walking distance from a small nature reserve/bird sanctuary

Since everything is so close, we go everywhere on foot or by bike. There are bus stops (to the train station or city center) very close to the house.

! Our home is in a low-emission zone (LEZ). Foreign cars (except Dutch cars) have to be registered, but this is free if your car meets the requirements --> https://stad.gent/en/mobility-ghent/low-emission-zone-ghent

Nuestras preferencias

Lo qué nos gusta y lo qué no... Estas son nuestras preferencias y normas domésticas.

- We have 2 very sweet but shy indoor cats that we would ask you to take care of. They are rescue cats, that are easily scared by other animals, loud children and sometimes each other ;) (The neighbours are willing to help out with the cats, if necessary.) Of course, we will be very happy to take care of your pets in return.
- No parties, no smoking,...
- Be nice to the wooden floors

We are hoping to spend our vacation in the countryside, preferably in the mountains/hills. A like, river or sea nearby is always a plus.
