Our home

Looking for a kids-friendly place from where you can explore all the beautiful and lively cities of Belgium, the Netherlands, western Germany and northern France? Our house is located on the edge of the old university town of Leuven (Louvain). It has all the space and comfort needed for a family with (or without) children, and is easily accessible by car or public transportation. We prefer not to accept pets, although we do keep 2 cats ourselves. They sleep outside and never go upstairs. We can leave the cats in your hands, or we can find another place for them while you're here.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of four: Wim and Kathleen (both born in 1970) and our sons Sander (1998) and Hannes (2000). Wim is a journalist for a daily newspaper in Brussels, Kathleen teaches French in a highschool in Leuven. This means that we can only do exchanges during the official school holidays (july, august, 2 weeks over christmas, 2 weeks over easter, 1 week in november and 1 week in february). We love travelling, but we always have to strike a good balance between our own interests (culture & nature) and those of our kids (FUN!). If you still have doubts about Belgium as a holiday destination, please let us convince you. Not only are you very close to many old cities, Belgium also offers you excellent food, a vibrant nightlife, lots of cultural events, and of course our famous beers and chocolates ;-) We'll provide you with all the info & tips you need. You can Skype us at wimkathleen.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our house lies at walking or biking distance from Leuven, a very lively university town with lots of great and affordable restaurants and pubs. Brussels is only 15 minutes away. Antwerp, Ghent, Bruges, the North Sea, Lille, Liège and Cologne can all be reached within 1 - 2 hours. Paris and Amsterdam are possible as a daytrip. We have a small 2nd car (Renault Clio) which could be exchanged, but a bike and/or bus/train will also get you to any major destination. Leuven itself is surrounded by some beautiful green areas where you can go for a walk or a bike ride.
