About our home

Brussels travel is cheap compared to London and Paris, with a touch of charm and elegance. It is a center of European culture with almost 90 museums, beautiful parks and fascinating walks. The vibe of Brussels is further enhanced by picturesque medieval streets, lively squares, beautiful boulevards, impressive monuments, cozy cafés, fabulous restaurants and an active cultural life.

Our home is located in a quiet street in St Gilles, which is the favourite neighbourhood among expats who like to live like locals. From the top end, with its grand Art Nouveau houses, down to the earthy Gare du Midi, St Gilles is packed with quirky restaurants, shops and a buzzing nightlife. There is the beautiful art deco Victor Boin swimming pool and Turkish baths for relaxing, plus a number of theatres, cinemas and galleries to explore. It is one of Brussels’ most dynamic areas with a definite future, attracting both expats and locals to its enigmatic character.

Belgium is a country to eat, drink and be merry! When it comes to eating establishments, the country is proud of the choice and quality of its restaurants. In fact, Brussels ranks among the top European cities with the most Michelin stars. In total, the Michelin Guide for Belgium 2016 featured three restaurants with a three-star rating, 20 restaurants with a two-star rating and 106 restaurants with an one-star rating. But it’s not just highbrow dining that the Belgians excel in. According to a survey by, Brussels was the only western European city in the top 10 destinations in the world for street food.

Belgium is unlikely to disappoint on the cultural and entertainment front. Besides impressive museums, a lively theatre scene, and some of the most picturesque historical towns in Europe, Belgium has more castles per kilometre than any other country in the world. There are also a number of colourful festivals, not least the folkloric, UNESCO-recognised Carnaval.

If you’re a beer drinker, you’ll find yourself in the capital of great beer. All major cities and towns have bars of all types, from trendy lounges to old Flemish hostelries serving an array of the best-tasting and most interesting beers in the world. In fact, in Belgium, beer is even a ‘religious’ affair, with Trappist monks having brewed and sold their own beer for centuries.
