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 2017 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 the bedrooms are towards the court yard.
If not otherwise indicated, we can host 1-2 persons, only during holiday season we will make the whole apartment available.
As we have in principle two rooms we can rent, even though we prefer to rent only 1 room at a time, it is possible that there are other guests in the appartment, either friends of ours or through Airbnb.
Please note: The bathroom is the only room that is not entirely finished and has curtains instead of a door
Interaction with guests
Generally we (couple with a child of 9 years) love to interact with our guests, invite them for dinner of breakfast. 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.
Other things to note
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.
Please note: We are a family home, NOT a professional B&B.
a) The bathroom is the only room that is not entirely finished, (e.g the door is a double curtain).
b) The rooms cannot be locked at the moment.
c) Please read carefully the pdf with the instructions to find the apartment, which we will send to you a few days beforehand
d) When you are arriving late, please make sure to have a torch and the plan (from the pdf) at hand, as there are no lights on the site.
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....)
