About our home

Our house has all modern comfort but still needs some renovation here and there. We find it a very cosy house that stays agreeably cool in a hot summer and it is pleasantly warm in winter. We live in a quiet, child-friendly neighbourhood not far from all necessary amenities. You can easily go everywhere you want by train or by bike (trainstation 10 minutes on foot). If you want, you can follow a bicycle trail all the way up to the Netherlands (15 km to the border). Feel free to use our bikes. One of them is a bike carrier and can carry 3 infants. It won't be possible to swap our car, because we will take it with us. Last but not least, please use our own bio vegetables and eggs!

Where is it?


Our lovely 'fifties style' house is situated in a small but thriving city between (not far from) the culturally very interesting cities of Antwerp and Ghent. The city centre and train station are nearby as well as shops and places to eat or go out. During summer a lot of activities are going on in Sint-Niklaas (city park concerts on every Tuesday, ...) and even more in Antwerp (the Summer of Antwerp, ...) and in Ghent (Gent Jazz Festival, the Ghent Festivities, ...). The beautiful Dutch city of Hulst is on a 25 minutes drive. Brussels, the North Sea or Bruges are within reach of a one hour drive. Paris and Amsterdam in a 3 hours drive.
There are also a lot of children's activities to do in the neighbourhood. There are two recreation parks nearby. We would be glad to give more detailed and personalized tourist information for our exchange guests.
