What you will love about this home
My apartment is beautiful, lots of light, with a spacious double living-room and dining-room, a large terrasse overlooking the trees and with no one around. It is very quiet and has a very good piano! I put a lot of carpets and différents objects brought back from my trips, so it has a distinct and personal feel. The apartment is the second and last floor of a typical Brussels house from 1910.
What you will love in the neighborhood
My neighbourhood, Saint-Gilles, is considered as the hip area of Brussels, yet very quiet. For lovers of architecture, there are many beautiful Art nouveau houses, and the famous Horta Museum is cinq minutes walk from my house. I live in a beautiful street with trees, quiet but very near a lot of little restaurants, cafes, shops, supermarkets, a nice market on Monday where everyone goes for a drink in the evening, and all transports. It is by far my favourite area and all my hosts are very happy to discover it!
It is a non-smoking and shoe-free apartment, in order not to spoil the beautiful carpets with the dirt brought from the streets:-)
