About our home

Our house is comfortable and very cosy. Three years ago we built it ourselves in wood and straw. It has an ecological touch and therefore it is very healthy to live in.
Our house is in fact one open space with a large kitchen, dining room, sofa, computer corner, study and on the first floor four bedrooms and a bathroom.
Big windows from the bodem to the roof give a nice open view on our garden with wooden terrace and beautiful herbs and flowers.
Our house is decorated with art and old wooden furniture. We love spending time in our home and garden, it is warm and inviting.

Where is it?


We live very quitely in a small green town, in the middle of the Euregio, near to the border with the Netherlands (Maastricht) and Germany (Aachen)and the French part of Belgium (Liège). You drive one hour to Brussels and Antwerp / two hours to Brugge, Gent and the Northsea / three hours to Paris, Amsterdam or Köln. 15 minutes away you can visit Tongeren (the oldest city in Belgium). You will find a mix between lovely nature and exciting cities, between green and action. You can enjoy walking, biking and sightseeing.
