Our home

Spacious apartment designed by ourselves and decorated with modern design, vintage and antique furniture. Surrounded by trees, cool in summer, bright in winter. Always very quiet, no sound of traffic because of our cul-de-sac street. Little outdoor terrace with plants, table and chairs looking on gardens. Kitchen is big and well equipped. 2 bedrooms with double beds and a study. Perfect for 2 couples or parents with 2-3 children. Musical instruments (electric piano, drums, bass-guitar) lots of CD's and books on art and architecture, many in English. Bathroom is small but very convenient with 2 sinks and showers for simultaneous showering. Separate toilet. Optional car exchange with private parking space and free parking in the city. Bicycles available.
