“Had a fantastic stay in Gent Jan/Feb 2011. We went there with no pre-conceived ideas - and our expectations were exceeded in every way. The house, situated in the "Patershol" neighbourhood, is amazing, it is centuries old, but has a trendy architect designed interior. "The Patershol" (being right next to Het Gravenstein - The Castle of the Counts), is an integral part of Gent's Historic "Olde Flemmish" core and is bursting with atmosphere, having over 100 excellent restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Also within Gent's historic town centre, and within easy walking distance, can be found dozens of Cafes, Music Clubs and Pubs, all of which serve high quality - reasonably priced food and/or the best beers in the world - bar none. Gent is an ideal, centrally located base to explore the rest of Flanders, being only 30 to 40 minutes journey by train from Brussels, Bruges, Antwerp and Ypres. Karien and Patrick made us very welcome and we would highly recommend their home for anybody considering a home exchange to historic Belgium - the land of beer, waffles and chocolate. Leonie & Michael Hayes”

Where is it?
Our house is situated in the middle of the "Patershol," an authentic medieval district in the shadow of the Castle of the Counts. Today the Patershol is not only the place to be for those who appreciate fine food and drinks, but also for those who like to stroll in an environment where each piece of red brick caries long tales of history in each of the old houses and museums of the district.
