Your room is overlooking the square with local shops, including French-style 2 boulangerie/patisserie shops, Chez Josy (an organic cafe), a small supermarket, a Post Office and a home-made ice-cream shop across the street ! As the shops are all closed at night, you are guaranteed a peaceful night's rest.
Farmers Market every Sunday morning around the nearby early 20th century town hall. Recommended restaurants in easy walking distance, grocery stores across the street open until 20h everyday if you feel like cooking for yourself.
Local nature park with herons and deer only 5 minutes walk away. Only a mile away from the beautiful woods and parkland of La Bois de la Cambre and the Foret de Soignes for those who love hiking, jogging, skating, cycling...
Please note that the apartment is a walk-up - it's on the third floor (4th floor if you are North American) and there is NO lift (elevator) so only for the fit and healthy who are willing and able to climb the stairs !
Available for weekly / monthly stays in July and August only - please contact me for details.
IMPORTANT: For security reasons, I don't rent the room to people wih no photo or profile information.
Je parle francais.
No pets (small dogs possibly - ask me!)
I appreciate it if you leave your outdoor shoes in the hallway.
If you arrive/return after 11pm, please do not make a lot of noise in the stairwell as I have very young and very old neighbours who will be disturbed by noise.
A happy middle-aged Englishwoman who loves writing, travel, photography, art and design, nature and spending part of the year as a digital nomad..
I love visiting new places, meeting new people (and recommending the delights of my home town), learning new languages.
I prefer home comfort and meeting locals to staying in some anonymous corporate hotel !
I speak English and French.
