“We spent one phantastic week in the wonderful house of Valerie and Georg. The town of Antwerpen is worth visiting and we enjoyed our trips by bike very much. Fortunately we met the especially nice family in our house before we went to Belgium. They even cared for our dog! We had a really good feeling from the beginning and so we had a relaxed and great time. They left our house in a perfect condition.”
Georg's reviewsAs a host (3)
“We stayed in Georgs and Valeries beautiful house for one week in April 2017 and really enjoyed our stay. The house is very large, but extremely comfortable and elegant. We (a family of 4) didn\'t even use all the rooms ;-). The cats were easy to care for and one of them even snuggled up with the kids on the sofa after getting used to us. The location of the house in Antwerp-Zuid is a great starting point for discovering the city by bike, which the family generously provided us with. After our return our house was in perfect condition and exactly as we left it. Another perfect exchange ... that\'s why we love this kind of vacation so much :-).”
“Had two great weeks in Valerie and Georgs lovely house on a quiet street but in the middle of an area with restaurants, cafés, museums. 15 minutes’ walk and you are down town where all the tourist and shopping attractions are. We didn’t know much about Antwerp but was very surprised by the international atmosphere. Antwerp are definitely worth a visit, and not far away you can visit other interesting towns like Brussel, Brugge, Gent, Namur etc. or the south of the Netherlands as we did. We met the family at their house and had a nice dinner together, and afterwards the children invited us to a superb ice cream shop in the neighborhood that served Antwerp’s absolutely best ice cream. We warmly recommend a house swap with Valerie, Georg and their children. The family of 5 from Denmark.”
Where is it?
The house is situated in Antwerpen Zuid (Antwerp South), a district that originates from the end of the 19th century. It is said to have been inspired by Haussman, giving rise to the nickname “Le Petit Paris”. Antwerpen South offers a lot of monumental views, large streets, an enormous range of bars, restaurants and art gallerys. Our house lies in a quiet street, next to the Museum of Fine Arts. 500 meters further you'll find the 'Fotomuseum' (Museum of Photography) and the Museum of Modern Arts (Muhka). It takes a 3 minutes walk to 2 nice playgrounds en 4 minutes to the river. The old city is 15 minutes by foot, or you take the tram, that stops very close to our house.
