country house for people who love nature (Belgia - Limburg - Genk)

Vieraskirjamme

  • Prima ruil in leuk huis!

    Wij hebben een leuk weekend gehad, in een fijn en ruim huis. Er was zelfs voor ons gekookt! De verzorging van de dieren was gemakkelijk en gezellig om te doen. De omgeving is prachtig om te wandelen en Hasselt ligt op een kwartiertje rijden met de auto. Een aanrader!

  • All was perfect. Love to remember each day.

    A really very good exchange The region offers many parks very close by - De Maten (!), "Wijers" has 1001 lakes in the vicinity. Shopping facilities, Cities, small towns - all in easy reach. We experienced an uncomplicated, clear and friendly contact. We enjoyed every day. Thank you so much, Lieve and Peter. It was great!

  • Dear Lieve and Peter, thanks again for the wonderful stay at your Home. It was one of our most beautiful home Exchange. The very good location, in a nice well-kept residental area we really enjoyed. Lieve had prepared a good welcome-meal for us - it was enough for two days. Although we felt very comfortable throughout the hole house, the conservatory soon became our favorite place. Having breakfast overlooking the garden, singing birds and one the plate fresh eggs from your five chickens ..... A big supermarket, restaurants and a delicous ice cream was not far from your home. Genk is very well located and there are many interresting things to see. For peoble who like cycling, it is a paradise. We wish Lieve and Peter all the best for the future and many exciting exchanges. Kuno & Brunhild from Ostfriesland (Germany).

  • Belgium offers much more than we imagine normally. It is really a wonderful place with many opportunities for hiking, walking, bycling, exploring beautiful towns etc. This home exchange we enjoyed very much and we can recommend very much exploring Genk and it’s surrounding. Limburg is a very interesting area and we loved staying in the cosy and welcoming house of these very nice and helpful people Lieve and Peter. When we were at home, we lived mostly in the veranda a sort of winter garden. It is a warm room that can be opened but with grids against wasps and mosquitos, open to the garden, the flowers in the pots. We often watched the cats that were playing together or we saw them laying in the sun. Just behind the garden is a wonderful big reserve “de Maten”, with its beautiful moory landscape with lots of ponds, heather – just a place where we loved to go several times. But we loved to discover towns too, such as Tongelen, the oldest town of Belgium. Two times we spent a whole day in the very near, really big and good Open Air Museum Bokrijk, where it was very lively with people living in the houses, teacher, pastor, policeman, brassorchestra in action. We loved our tasty eggs every morning and became friends with the animals, the chickens with their rooster, the two house cats, the joung neighbor cat and now after two weeks we still miss them. This swap was a really great success, and when we came home, we were very happy to find our house so clean, all our plants in the house well cared. We wish Lieve and Peter all the best and that they will experience many other home swaps wherever they like to go. Andreas and Margrit

  • We brought our bikes and expected to come to a region suitable for bicyling but what we found is a bicylist's paradise. Limburg is very beautiful with bogs and heather and lots of little lake, very good for birdwatching and hiking. The wonderful Bokrijk Open Air Museum is nearby and there are always pretty places, domains or abbeysor cafes, where you can enjoy a tasty Belgian beer or coffee and a piece of cake on the way. The knoppunt system cards lead you everywhere on very safe bikepaths of the highest standard. The whole area of the Euroregion Maastricht/Aachen/Hasselt should be visit more often by tourits from other European country because it has so much to offer. We have been there several times and go back any time again. Lieve and Peter are wonderful exchange partners. The house is very comfortable, well equipped and tidy. We got a delicious welcome meal that lasted us for 3 days. 6 hens and 1 rooster gave us fresh eggs for breakfast every day. The house is situated in a quiet and very green housing area. Right across from the house you have a view of a meadow with oaktrees and grazing horses that somehow reminded me of a painting by Magritte. Very good shopping opportunities were in easy reach on foot or by bike. We drove our car onto the premises on our day of arrival and didn't touch it again until our day of departure. And don't let me forget: We were very impressed by the pristine state they left our own house in.

  • De comfortabele woning met grote besloten tuin van Lieve & Peter in een rustige buitenwijk van Genk (maar toch op loopafstand van Albert Heijn) is een prima uitvalsbasis voor wandel- en fietstochten in de natuurgebieden, die hier letterlijk om de hoek van de straat liggen. Belgisch Limburg kenmerkt zich hier onder meer door een afwisselend landschap van bossen, heidevelden en veel vennen, waardoor er een grote diversiteit aan flora & fauna valt waar te nemen. Cultuurhistorisch is het ook interessant hier, met de herbestemming van oude mijncomplexen en het beleid van de overheid om het toerisme meer te bevorderen, wat resulteert in veel activiteiten (musea, festivals, markten) en voorzieningen zoals een omvangrijk en goed ingericht knooppuntnetwerk als bewegwijzering. Het is er ook niet al te heuvelachtig, en dat is prettig voor Hollanders die wel tegen een beetje tegenwind kunnen, maar vooral gewend zijn aan vlak en oneindig laagland. Voor de liefhebbers; er zijn ook twee prachtige golfbanen op een boogscheut afstand. Léon

  • Beste Lieve en Peter, Wat een heerlijke dagen hebben we gehad in jullie huis! We hebben genoten van het huis ( veranda/serre) en van jullie grote tuin. Jullie wonen aan de rand van een natuurgebied, wij als natuurliefhebbers vonden dat erg fijn. De streek nodigt uit om te fietsen en van het mooie gebied te genieten! Wij bedanken jullie nogmaals voor jullie uitmuntende gastvrijheid! Hugo en Anita de Ridder.
