“We stayed at Gavin's for 10 days. It is a beautiful apartment in a great location - very convenient, but far enough away from tourist traps! Gavin left lots of notes around the apartment to welcome us and give us a "tour" without even being there. A great exchange!”

Where is it?
The loft is within a gated community - just off the street. The area is called Jette - in fact the apartment is on the site of the old communal buildings. The area itself is popular and near the North West of the centre, and not far away from a very large 1930s designed (but finished in 1960s) basilique called Koekelberg.
The centre is only 11 minutes away on the train (2 stops) or you can take a tram and the metro. There is a market nearby (4 times/week).
A car is a good idea, I think - especially to visit outside Brussels - though train would also work (to Bruges, Gent, Antwerp etc.). Brussels is an easy city for business, shopping and walking. Plenty of 'character' places to see, but it's not London, Paris or New York. Having said that - Paris and London are well connected on the train - as are Amsterdam and Köln as well.
