Our home

This spacious apartment is situated on the first floor of a neoclassical building dating from the end of the 19th century. Formerly, it was a paper factory and a factory of Indian caps.
Although the apartment is located right in the middle of the city center, it offers absolute silence. High ceilings, fine decoration, lots of books (also in English) and delicate lightning will immediately give you a sense of well being, and the atmosphere will make you feel at home during your stay (you might never want to leave...).
Big windows open up to the wooden terrace with view on a green patio, so you can also enjoy sitting outside on warm days.
If you don't feel like dining out, the modern kitchen invites you to explore your own cooking creativity.
The apartment has one bedroom, so it can accommodate two guests.
If you come by car, there is a parking place in the garage under the building with immediate access to the apartment by elevator.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The apartment is situated in the middle of the historical city center. All musea, the river Scheldt, restaurants, bars, shops ... everything is at walking distance.
If you prefer exploring Antwerp and its surroundings by bike or use public transportation, a city bike station and a tram stop are in front of our door.
Antwerp has a lot to offer: city on the Scheldt, city of Rubens, of diamonds, of fashion, a port city... The sum of all these different aspects makes Antwerp a vibrant, welcoming metropolis, which is also great fun and heart-warming, with green areas where you can relax, and peaceful corners. Antwerp is a veritable cultural capital, which prides itself on its impressive architecture and splendid art. Moreover, Antwerp is a fashionista’s dream destination thanks to the stores of its world-renowned designers. The cafes only serve the best beers and foodies can enjoy the most delicious traditional and multicultural cuisine in the city’s restaurants. Antwerp is a pocket-sized city which is sure to conquer anyone’s heart in no time at all.
Antwerp is also a perfect starting point to visit other Belgian cities like Brussels (30 mins), Ghent (30 mins), Bruges (60 mins),... but even Amsterdam (1,5 hrs), Paris (2 hrs) and London (2,5 hrs) are nearby. The railway station is also at walking distance from our home.
After your city visit(s), the apartment offers you complete rest and shelter.
