Our appartment of 105m2 on the first floor of the building is situated on the beautiful site of the Old Veterinary school of Brussels. Big windows all around let lots of light in, great view, a terrace in the summer, great for kids to play.

At 7 minutes walk from the South station, and 20 min walk to the Grand Place, the appartment is situated in a parc, hardly any traffic, therefore great for kids, and quiet. The appartment is entirely renovated with ecological materials. In the summer there is a private terrace and the rest of the parc to enjoy. The ancient features of the appartment with wooden doors, moldings on the 4m high ceiling and a marble mantelpiece in the master bedroom have been kept and restored.
Most walls have been insulated and with the underfloor heating and a wood stove give a very pleasant indoor climate. The ceiling in the guest room still needs to be insulated as it has directly a piece of roof above it. Until then we provide in the winter an extra stove and blankets.
On the site live mostly expats from all over the world, so any language goes...
For 2015 building works for the big building at the entrance of the site are going on, so please expect to see some "building site rubble" when you enter the site. The noise is not really an issue, as most of the works are inside.

Depending on us being here or away you have either a bed and couch in one of the rooms for 1 (exceptionally 2) persons or access to the whole appartment for 3 to max 5 persons, including the living, kitchen, master bedroom, office/guest room and the children's room. There is also a separate toilet room, a shower and a bathroom that has a shower, 2 lavabos and another toilet.

If not otherwise indicated, in the next months we can host 1-2 persons, only during holiday season we will make the whole appartment available.

Please note: The bathroom is the only room that is not entirely finished, (e.g the door is currently still a curtain and the second level of the bathroom where a bathtub will come one day).

Generally we (couple with a child of 5,5 years) love to interact with our guests, invite them for dinner, show them around. When we are not here we will provide you with all necessary information for an enjoyable stay in Brussels. Also we speak English, German, French, Italian, Dutch and some Spanish.

The neighbourhood is a special one, with this park area in the middle of a mainly old and new immigrant neighbourhood with a growing influx of young belgian couples as housing prices are still affordable. The area used to be the top address of Brussels 100 years ago. That's why you find the most beautiful art deco houses in this area. The cultural and conference center "The Egg" is literally around the corner (2min walk).
A mediterranean atmosphere in the neighbourhood provides for lots of little shops and makes it easy to talk to the people in the bakery, fruitshop, butcher, fish shop, pharmacy etc, all friendly and with good prices. The other side of the coin is a certain amount of disorder on the streets and walkways (+ official rubbish bags in the streets on different days during the week, waiting to be picked up by the municipal waste utilities). Lots of smaller grocery shops around with ok prices as compared to big supermarkets.

The Brussels South station with Eurostar, Thalys, ICE high speed trains from all over Europe (London, Paris, Frankfurt), Metro station, lots of busses and trams. It is currently possible to park on our site next to the building.

We tend to have only 1 guest room rented, however, it can happen that there will be another Airbnb-guest staying in the other guest room at the same time. We have 1 bathroom with WC, 1 shower and one extra WC, which means that even in those circumstances, sharing of facilities is limited.

House Rules

We enjoy civilised, responsible and solution oriented people, no problem if sth goes wrong, just talk about it and we can find a solution.

When you leave the appartment and we are out for a few days, please deposit the key into the keysafe outside the building.

If something happens during your stay (like electricity switch off, or smoke detectors beeping etc) and we are away, please always contact us via email or sms, so we can help you solve the problem (and avoid to have the contents of our freezer unfrozen upon our return....)
