About this listing
The house is splendid and the Sainte-Catherine neighbourhood is charming. For those who love cycling, jump on our bikes to discover the city!
The house is located in a lovely neighbourhood of the city center. It is a very untypical space which caracterise this historical part of Brussels at best. From the street, the house is nothing special, but behind is hidden a surprising place ! On a side, a balconny gives a view on a small private street inside the block, and on the other, we find the garden, accessible from the garage.
Both rooms are convenient for either short or long term stay (double bed, wardrobe, wifi). Intimacy and userfriendly ! The garden, garage and living spaces are all accessible.
We propose a breakfast (extra 7€ per person), it is taken on a large common table, alone or together depending everyone’s schedule. Our guests are more than welcome to use our bikes, there are a few itineraries that we could recommand too!
Interaction with Guests
We like to spend some times with our guest on their arrival. Drinking a beer and learning about eachother is a good way for everyone to feel confortable and welcome in the house.
Far from three pedal strokes of the the essential « Manneken Pis etc... », the neighbourhood is famous for its many restaurants, bars and artshops. It is nonetheless popular and multicultural. Our house is, besides, exceptionaly calm for its location.
For transport, there are many options. We provide some bicycles to our guests who desire to discover the city sportively. There are very nice bike tours that we could recommand. The metro stations are located at 200m (line 1 and 5) and 500m (line 2 and 6), and the three main train stations are only 15 minutes walk (Central, Norht and South).
Other Things to Note
We are quite flexible with check in and check out time. However, it is quite important for our organisation that the guests respect the arrival time announced.
We ask our guests to take off their shoes when coming into the house, we've got slippers that you can use though ;).
It is forbidden to smoke inside but there is a balcony and a garden for the smokers.
We loved this charming house right in the heart of Brussels. It was in a very charming neighborhood and the house was very clean and well maintained. There were two bathrooms which helped with the shared living situation. The only issue we had was we thought there were two beds when in fact there were just one. Another family had rented out another room in the house and they may have just gotten to the spare bed before we did. All in all, lovely town, beautiful home, and very sweet hosts! Would definitely recommend!
We had a fantastic time with Laurent and Viriginie. Apartment was beautiful and they were both very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended
This place was very nice. Just as shown in the pictures. Also the host, Laurent, was very helpful. He immediately showed us where the bikes are and adjusted them to out height. Helped us bring the luggage upstairs. He forgot it was three of us and the room only had a bed for two but very promptly set up a third bed. He showed us to the kitchen and the things we could use. The entire place is very spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The water pressure in the shower is great :) (it's amazing how you come to appreciate that while travelling throughout several countries). Laurent also provided us with a lot of tourist information and was nice to recommend some local beers and bars. This is a great place to stay, undoubtedly.
Le logement de Virginie et Laurent est idéalement situé, proche du métro et 10 min à pied du coeur de Bruxelles. Nous avons passé 3 jours au top, les hotes sont accueillants et chaleureux et les vélos sont idéal pour se déplacer.
This was a really beautiful place to stay with very kind and friendly hosts who made us feel very welcome. I can strongly recommend this (website hidden) is a wonderful and surprising city to visit!
We had a wonderful stay. Laurent was very nice and gave us all of the info we (website hidden) is a beautiful city with a lot to do! This place is a ten minute walk from downtown and we used the bikes to get around the outskirts of the city but not downtown because of the cobblestone. All in all, a wonderful place and is as advertised
