About our home
Ghent is a very attractive medieval city with lots of young people thanks to his university. It has been awarded and mentioned several times by many travellers companies. Like: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/belgium/flanders/ghent/travel-tips-and-articles/76165 and http://landlopers.com/2013/01/27/love-ghent/ .
In July we have the longest outdoor festival in Europe in the city centre with a lot of free performances, for more info on what to do: http://www.use-it.be/_files/inlineuploads/pages/ghent_activities.pdf.

If you wish you can use our bikes to travel around in Ghent (it's the easiest an by far fastest way of exploring the city)
In our street there are lots of young couples and students, but those students will mostly be gone during July. There is little traffic and it is a very safe neighbourhood. At the end of the street there is one of the many canals which is great for walking or biking.
All kind of shops are just 2 streets away. The millionaires area is also close by and there you can see some of the finest architectural buildings. A swimming pool and sauna are just around the corner. There is a new tropical swimming pool at the "Rozebroeken" that is great for children its 30 min by bus to get there.
