La nostra casa

Descrizione della casa che offriamo

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.

Ghent is the place to be if you like culture. It has a lovely opera house, concert halls in historical venues (e.g. Handelsbeurs, Bijloke, De Centrale, Vooruit), museums (art, design, history, science,...), theatres, street art (https://cultuur.stad.gent/nl/activiteiten/sorry-not-sorry-street-art-map), big and small festivals,...

Need some quiet and calm? We're very close to small nature reserve 'Bourgoyen' (also popular for bird watching).

Preferenze

Cosa ci piace, cosa non gradiamo… Ecco le regole in casa nostra.

- 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.
