Our home

The apartment is a comfortable 110 square meters, on the ground floor. It is part of a one-story cottage like house within an exclusive complex of character accommodations. It enjoys its own private garden and terrace. Really a plus during the summer days when the city is hot. Some vaporous shade does come as a blessing.
The apartment comprises one big double bed bedroom with private bathroom, another room with additional accommodation possibilities (click clack sofa) and second private bathroom. Ideal for a couple.
Fully equipped kitchen. The living room is particularly spectacular in the midst of towering bookshelves. The living room - albeit not immense - is cosy around the stove with a direct view on the garden and surrounding centenary trees. The garden is a nest of quietness and relaxation in the midst of otherwise busy bee Brussels. I have traveled and made this a 'homy' place, full of reminiscence and collectables.
This place is also safe. Apart from the fact that it is hidden away from the little cobbled road passing in front of the complex as it gives on the gardens of the back, it has also an alarm. The neighbourhood is also very safe and quiet.

Who we are

  1. I am a documentary film maker, hired these last years as Press and Public information officer for the European Foreign Affairs' civilian missions in difficult parts of the world (Kosovo, Libya). I have travelled extensively in Asia, Africa, the Maghreb but the lure to go is ever present. My twin sister tried this Home Exchange formula and had wonderful experiences. So I thought I might give it a try too. All the more so since I like to travel outside of typical tourism tracks and appreciate to be as close as possible to locals' life.
    I am not married but loyal to my 20 years old romance. I will also be loyal to our exchange engagements. I am also flexible.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

This is a very quiet apartment tucked in the heart of green Brussels, walking distance from the Cambre Lake where joggers and bikers gather during week-ends. It is nonetheless - and quite extraordinarily - close to the city centre by a few bus or tram stops (the Grand Place is a short 15 min. away). By car, it is even easier: one just drives down the famous Louise avenue to its posh shopping area (place Louise, avenue de la Toison d'Or).

The apartment "Clairiere" (meaning the clearing or meadow ) is close to some of the most exclusive Brussels restaurants (cf. La Villa Lorraine, les Brasseries Georges,…)
It is an ideal hide away for those who want it all: enjoy the ebullient cultural life of EU's capital, explore further cities (Waterloo, Bruges, Gent,…) from a central point, go on with healthy practices without having to go out of one's way (hiking, jogging) and make the most of a rare accommodation full of character and warmth.
I look forward to welcoming you and make sure that you make the most of your stay.
