How interesting is Belgium! The appartement is well situated and nearby the historic village. In the neighbourship is the wonderful Beginen court. Leuven has a lot of sightseeing objects and an interesting history. And by train you can arrive a lot of interesting places : Antwerpen, Bruxelles, Mechelen , The Africa museum in Tervuren with his wonderful public parc is worth to visit and the Fondation Folon near La Hulpe. Thanks for the host. Yours Gabi & Kurt
We felt very comfortable in the house of Dominique and Jan. It is very quiet and only 10 minutes walk to the city centre. Leuven is a cosy city with many interesting places and good restaurants. With the train you can also explore Belgium quickly and very cheaply (as a senior).
Thank you Dominique and Jan for the use of your very comfortable and well-located home. We enjoyed the close proximity to the city and appreciated the way you had the fridge stocked for us with lots of nice treats. The city itself is very interesting but there are also some other nice places not too far away. We particularly enjoyed the Japanese Garden in Hasselt and the museum at Bokrijk. The Botanic Garden in Leuven is also lovely. There are lots of lovely parks and green areas around and the park just beside us had lots of noisy mating frogs which fascinated us. We also enjoyed having a beer in the Grote Markt and in other places and it is nice to be in walking distance of a restaurant for a night or two. You gave us an opportunity for an interesting and enjoyable holiday. Thanks again!
It is a great apartment in front of the historical Groot Begijnhof in Leuven. The apartment was clean en cosy and they welcomed us with delicious Belgium chocolates and Belgium Beers. There is a large communal garden and a private terrace. It is at walking distance from the historical city center. Also a good base for visiting Brussel. In the house are many terrific movies available. We really enjoyed this place in Leuven. Thanks for the exchange Jan en Dominique.
Dear Dominique and Jan Already a few weeks have passed since our visit to you in Leuven but we like to think back to this time. It was our first home exchange but certainly not our last. We felt very comfortable with you immediately and the excursions into the city were always an experience. The many beautiful cafe shops and the small shops we really liked. On New Year's Eve we were almost the only visitors, the whole city was running. Particularly impressive were the many historic buildings in the area. We like to come to Belgium again. Many thanks Kurt and Franziska
Jan and Dominique made us feel very welcome in their nice and quiet apartment. They welcomed us with some food in the refrigerator and lots of information about helpful things to make our stay in Leuwen enjoyable as well as transport information for visits to other interesting places in Belgium. Leuwen is an interesting city with remarkable history, museums and lots of restaurants and bars and we really liked our stay there. All communication with Jan and Dominique before the exchange as well as during it was very good and responsive and they left our apartment clean and tidy. We can highly recommend Jan and Dominique as great people to exchange home with. Many thanks, Kolbrun and Erlendur, Iceland.
We hebben een leuke tijd gehad in Leuven. Dankzij de goede tips van Jan en Dominique hebben we in korte tijd heel veel van Leuven gezien. Hun appartement ligt tegenover het Groot Begijnhof, een schilderachtige oase van rust. Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien en door de heldere informatie konden we zowel in huis als in de stad alles vinden.
Lovely apartment, walking distance to the centre of lively Leuven and well connected by train to other Belgian cities. Historic Leuven is a university town, so there is always something happening! A beer and food festival when we were there! Fully equipped, attractive apartment, with an abundance of tourist information/tips provided. Very thoughtful hosts.
We had a very nice stay in Leuven in the house of Dominique en Jan. Because of the good information we got, even with pictures, it was easy to find the entrance in the building. Leuven is a very historic city with lots of old buildings in the center. The appartment is at walkable distance from the center and we did really like to stroll around. Everything was nice and pleasant. We appreciated the " bubbels" to celebratie New Year vey much. Thanks again.
We enjoyed very much the beautiful and lively town of Leuven.The apartment of Jan and Dominique is very quiet and the view, over a big garden in joint ownership, very peaceful.The building is located just opposite the "old beguinage" and we could easily walk to visit all monuments and sights in the city. Thank you Jan and Dominique for this so interesting home exchanage. Hélène & Alain
Brother Jos met us at the train station and introduced us to Jan and Dominique's very comfortable apartment. We were able to walk into central Leuven, enjoying the cafes and its very interesting history. and architecture. Brussels was nearby and we could easily visit other Belgian cities by train. We very much enjoyed our stay there.
