Our home

My little studio is small (50m2) but very well thought and organized. It doesn't feel small at all and is open to a unique garden in the very center of the city. Situated in the back of a building, it is very quiet (no city noises). i share the garden with my twin sister who has her own little studio just next-door. Ideal for twins ! The flat has all the facilities of a big apartment with an open wide kitchen for four, a cosy corner with sofa (also transformable into a double comfy bed), a little desk in front of the window, a huge TV screen and a "hidden" double bed in the mezzanine. You get to the bed using the wide ladder next to the sofa. The bed space is high enough not to feel claustrophobic. It feels like a little nest. The "Ibiza" bathroom is big and has a huge bath and shower. To summarize : peacefulness right in the middle of the city !

Who we are

  1. Since an early age, I've had the chance to travel a lot thanks to my dad who was a diplomat. Since then, I have always loved traveling a lot and experiencing new emotions and friendships. I have an MBA of International Law but am now busy in the interior decoration business. I am a proud mother of three daughters who are now all studying abroad. I have a twin sister who is travelling as much as I. I'm a pianist, love writing and reading, and enjoy a lot sports such as yoga, swimming in the sea, tennis, golf or horse-back-riding.
    All my past experiences with home exchanges have been very successful and friendly, so I'm very much looking forward to experiencing this new opportunity again. I appreciate to share my cosy place and offer the opportunity to others to discover the beauty of Brussels and Brugge. In exchange, I would appreciate a lot to discover other parts of the world, on the base of trusteeship and friendship. I care a lot for my home and would guarantee the same respect to yours.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The flat is situated on a main avenue in the centre but since it is on the ground floor at the back of the building, it is completely quiet and peaceful. Very close to parks, shops of all sorts, restaurants, bars, museums and theaters. It is at 15minutes from the very centre and the Grand Place, with a very easy access to all parts of Brussels.
I recommend two places less than 10' minutes walk from the flat : place du Châtelain (very much appreciated by the expats of Brussels) and place Brugman. Both are full of life and whenever the weather allows it, everyone is enjoying a glass outside. On Sundays, the flee market place du jeu de balles is always attractive and animated.
