Our home

Built in 1721 the townhouse has a history. Renovated in 2006, it has all modern comfort and appliances you need. 3 floors, decorated in uplifting colours, in the heart of the medieval city centre. Broadband wifi, digital tv including BBC domestic and World, CNN and all European channels. Situated in a quiet neighbourhood but at walking distance from the city's highlights (Graslei, Korenlei, Groentenmarkt, Vrijdagsmarkt). 100m to public transport. 2h to London, 2h to Paris or Amsterdam. Car included in the homeswap. (Mercedes Benz B, automatic transmission). We have 2 cats, they love people and are very disciplined. Local friends can take care of them while you would be traveling in Europe. We prefer an exchange where you take care of them most of the time but we can arrange a cat "hotel" for them if you're not a pet lover.

Who we are

  1. We own and so our work is mostly happening online. That's why we are easy going when it's about a longer home exchange. We are currently in Perth until June 2010, and would like to do a new exchange in this beautiful city somewhere later this year. 3,4 or more months, or a combination of 2 shorter swaps. We are neat, well organised and respectful, have ample driving experience in Perth already and can provide several local contacts for you in Belgium to help you out with language and other practical issues.
