Our home

We are an italian family living in a lovely house in Ixelles, one of the most lively and friendly neighborhood in Bruxelles. Our house was completely renovated in 2017 and it has: a fully equipped kitchen, where we love cooking and having friends; a big living room with a comfortable double sized sofa bed and a fireplace; a master bedroom with a big double bed; a children's bedroom with two mezzanine bed and a big extra room, which is our office, but can be converted in an extra room, with has a sofa bed and plenty of light, as it has a roof windows. We have three bathrooms: one with a walk-in shower, a second one with bath tub and a third one which has a simple toilet. Two gardens front and backyard, of approximately 50 sqm each complete the house. We love having barbecues during summertime! Internet wi-fi is available.
Walking distance the lively area of ULB university, plenty of bars and restaurants, supermarkets and direct connections to city center and airport. Even if we are very close to the lively area, our street is very quiet and silent and you can hear birds singing in the morning like in a little village!
We love our house and we will treat yours as it was our own.
