Échanges avec les voyageurs
My interaction with you is according to what you prefer. If you want to stay in your room, no problem. If you want to work or read sth in the living room (where I normally work), you're welcome! Just feel yourself at home and make/take it easy. If I want to have some privacy, I'll tell you :)
This is how Lonely Planet introduces our city, Ghent:
"Asking citizens of Ghent what they think of their city is a pointless exercise: you’ll find only unanimous love. And with good reason. Ghent is one of Europe’s greatest discoveries – small enough to feel cosy but big enough to stay vibrant. It has enough medieval frivolity to create a spectacle but retains a gritty industrial edge that keeps things ‘real’. Tourists remain surprisingly thin on the ground, yet with its fabulous canalside architecture, wealth of quirky bars and some of Belgium’s most fascinating museums, this is a city you really won’t want to miss."
No smoking inside the apartment.
Please provide information about yourself, share a photo and tell what you want to do in Gent / Belgium.
Your room will be cleaned on Tuesdays.
You can book 40 nights maximum. If you want to stay longer, let me know in your reservation.
I like traveling to other continents or citytripping in Europe. Huge fan of Barcelona!
When going abroad for work, I always try to visit a city for some days and meet lovely people living there, just to know more about interesting local spots. That's also what I can share with you about Gent.
I culture: Movies, theatre, dance & art.
