An irresistible exchange.The fact that we keep returning to this exchange speaks for itself! We rarely return as we like variety, but the combination of exchanging with lovely Hilde and Luk, their beautiful, comfortable home and delightful Brugge is totally irresistible. The garden is always a delight but it was even more enchanting at this time of year with the amazing weather - sun from morning until night for most days! Everything was in full bloom, Jules the tortoise was basking in the warmth and enjoying the vegetation in his huge enclosure enjoying the bits of tomatoes and strawberries we gave him, the frogs in the pond played hide and seek with me behind the Lilly pads. Totally magical. Needless to say, as always, the house was immaculate and a warm waiting greeted us with details of the many events on during our stay. We were lucky to have a “shopping Sunday” during our stay. Traffic are banned from the centre and it makes for a very relaxed day. The annual Zummer Fest was a vibrant but extremely family-friendly event held in the Minnerwater Park and during our stay there was a world music festival in Astrid Park which lasted five days which again seemed very family friendly when we visited one afternoon. Hilde and Luk are experienced and first class exchange partners. Always helpful and highly respectful of our home. We cannot praise them, their home and romantic Brugge enough!
