More about us

  1. I am Kevin, 30 years old. As a radio show host/producer I work for a national hit radio station in Belgium. I enjoy travelling. I may well be travelling by myself or with a friend, so either small or larger properties are of interest to me. I can provide lots of information and general support to ensure your time in Ghent is superb, including early bookings (restaurant, theatre, ...) and special event info, etc. All offers are welcome. I would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know the fellow exchangers via email first. That way we can see how we can facilitate our journeys. People from the Benelux, France and the UK: also possibility for short stays (weekends, short city trip). Looking forward to your offers!

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

The apartment sits in the historical city centre of Ghent, with the main shops and restaurants within walking distance. Public transport (bus/tram) is very nearby (100m). Trams and buses go straight from the train station (Gent-Sint-Pieters) to our residence (in 7 minutes). In the late medieval times Ghent was the second largest city in NW-Europe, after Paris. Ghent, 55 km to the west of Brussels, covers 156 sq. km of which 36 sq. km is port area. Ghent is located in the centre of Belgium. Therefor it's ideal for trips to the Belgian Coast (40 min drive), Brussels (40 min), Antwerp (30 min), Bruges (30 min), Lille (40 min), Normandy (40 min), ... Eurostar train (from Brussels) brings you to London in 2h20mins. Thalys train (from Ghent) connects you to Paris in 2hrs. Ghent is internationally renowned because of its international Film Festival of Flanders, the Festival of Flanders for Classical music, and the Municipal Museum for Contemporary Art (S.M.A.K.). In 2005 Ghent was awarded with the title “Most pleasant city of Flanders”. “Pleasant” means warm, welcoming, alive, sparkling, never boring, always moving and appealing to your imagination. You’ll find these characteristics of Ghent in its sparkling cultural life, by walking along the monuments, the historical or modern buildings, by enjoying the local (renowned) gastronomy, in the pedestrianized shopping streets. The locals provide for the pleasant atmosphere and Burgundian hospitality. More info: www.visitgent.be.
