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.
un accueil chaleureux et simple. comme si nous étions des connaissances bienvenue. Hôtes agréables, disponibles et de très bon conseil. maison charmante et confortable dans un super quartier. 5 Minutes du centre à pied.
Un endroit à retenir
Virginie et Laurent étaient super. Très accueillants, ils nous ont souhaités la bienvenue en nous donnant les bons coins de Bruxelles et ce qu'il fallait visiter, tout ça autour d'une bonne bière.
La chambre était nickel, le seul bémol étant qu'on s'attendait à avoir deux lits, et qu'il y en avait qu'un. Sûrement une incompréhension, rien de méchant.
Une adresse à recommander.
It was a very pleasant stay with Virginie and Laurent. The room ist comfortable, quiet and clean. The area is very interesting, and having a bicycle is just great. Virginie and Laurent are very nice hosts.
Laurent & Virginie's apartment is perfect for travellers coming to Brussels. The apartment is beautiful and is right around the corner from a metro station and walking distance to the Goote Martk. Our arrival was a little chaotic but Laurent made sure we got checked in. We were given a very useful 'locals' map for Brussels, Gent & Brugge on which both hosts filled in locations for us to check out. We had many pleasant conversations with Laurent and Virginie as well as Laurent's cousin who also stayed there while we were there. Laurent & Virginie were very easy going and accommodating even though we changed our itinerary several times and were rather strange tourists as we spent a lot of time at the apartment when I had to work.
on s'est senti chez nous instantanément! Virginie et Laurent vous mettent à l'aise très vite. le logement correspond en tout point aux photos et à la description, et je dirai même que c'est encore plus joli en vrai! décoré avec beaucoup beaucoup de goût. sinon ambiance super décontractée, on est totalement indépendant, et Laurent et Virginie vous donnent de vrais bons plans! aucun doute qu'à notre porchaine venue nous irons chez eux, car en plus d'être des hôtes charmants, on comprend rapidement que c'est pour eux un art de vivre :)
Amazing place - very spacious and clean. Laurent and Virginie were very welcoming and made us feel extremely at home. Laurent even kindly helped us to do our laundry which was especially nice. We truly appreciate him allowing us to stay beyond the check-out time as well. Really great experience!
Un super séjour pour nous en amoureux chez virginie et laurent et une très bonne première expérience air bnb !! La maison est très bien située, virginie et laurent sont très sympathiques et la chambre est très agréable.
Le gros plus ce sont les vélos disponibles pour parcourir la ville : nous en avons profité même s'il faisait -5° !!
Nous reviendrons sans doute quand il fera un peu plus chaud pour faire découvrir cette belle ville aux enfants.

We are a young couple from Brussels. We have always lived in this city that we adore! We share the house with Laurent's cousin, Julien, who has adopted the b&b&b attitude too.
We love sport, bicycle, going out in bars and restaurants and sometimes to clubs to listen to good electronics. We love gardening, some days we might grow some chickens too (--> local urban eggs for breakfast mmmh).
During our travels, we like to discover local folklore and things that autochtones are used to do. This is what we'd like to share with our guests too.
