“We just visited Brussels, for a couple of days. Such a dynamic, international and nice city. The house of Sabine and Marcello is a true palace. Very spacious and comfortable, in a nice area of town, with perfect access to public transport. Sabine, Marcello and kids were at home when we arrived in Brussels. We had lunch together at their big table, the 10 of us who were involved in this home swap, mixing Dutch, German, English, Italian, and French. When we came back in Amsterdam, we found the house and our cat in a perfect state. We had a wonderful swap. Our teenage kids really loved it too. The house must be a paradise for a family with small children.”

Where is it?
Our house is a typical Brussels townhouse in the charming Art Nouveau/Art Deco neighborhood of the historic Josaphat Park (at 200 m), where two children's playgrounds and a small animal farm with two donkeys and lots of birds (no touch) entertain kids. They can also roller-blade and bike in that park, and adults stroll under huge old trees, along lakes and admire the landscaping and artist's monuments. Green lawns invite people for picknicks and ball games in good weather. There are numerous restaurants and pubs in the immediate surroundings, as well as shops, a twice-weekly market, and supermarkets. Access by car is easy and direct from the motorway E40.
Public transport (busses and trams) are at 100 m and take you all over Brussels for sightseeing the town or to numerous museums, or directly to a train station, from where you can take day trips to Gent or Bruges (Brugge) or the Belgian coast, or even to Paris (Thalys train) or London (Eurostar train). The historic university town of Leuven (= Louvain or Löwen) is at 20 km, the Diamond city of Antwerp with its large harbour is at 40 km, both also worth visiting.
