The house is a gorgeous place to stay. This art deco house from the '30 (with its authentic details) has the forest at the back of its garden, and at the same time, you can reach the center city of brussels thanks to public transport (a tramway crossing the forest will lead you to the Montgomery subway). It's an ideal place for a family with children or for nature and sport lovers who also wants to visit Brussels. There'a a huge indoor public swimming pool with a slide a big outside garden at 5 min biking, a petanque and football/basket field in front of the house. The forest brings you to very beautifull parks such as the Rouge Cloitre or the Tervuren park.. Hiking or biking is perfect.. There is a small village atmosfeer here (with shops and a weekly market)
La maison est endroit très agréable à vivre. La maison art deco des années '30 avec ses détail d'origine, a la forêt à l'arrière de son jardin, et en même temps on peut rejoindre le centre ville par les transports en commun (un tramway qui traverse la forêt pour rejoindre le métro Montgomery). C'est un endroit idéal pour les familles avec enfants ou pour les amoureux de nature et de sport. Il y a une grande piscine intérieure publique avec toboggan et un grand jardin extérieur à 5 minutes en vélo et il y a une zone de pétanque+terrain de foot/basket en face de la maison. Il y aussi une superbe pleine de jeu (enfants de 3 à 16ans) à 15 minutes à pied à travers bois. La forêt vous menera à de superbes endroits comme le parc du Rouge Cloitre ou le parc de Tervuren..à pied ou en vélo, c'est parfait. Il y a aussi une petite atmosphère de village avec des magasins et un marché hebdomadaire..

The space

Many things are considered as exceptionnal with this house, that's also the opinion of our friends who are born and live themselves in Brussels. The link with the forest, at the back of the garden, for someone living in Brussels in pratically unreal. Even the neighborhood is particular and could have inspired the Belgian painter Delvaux: the forest, a village atmosfeer in Brussels, and the tramway crossing the forest and joining the city. The house itself: this art deco house from the '30 has been constructed by an architect for himself. I think this man had a certain idea of the life he wanted to have: all the spaces of the house are strongly connected (you feel like in a loft) and the details are wonderfull. For instance there's an exotic wooden floor or a enlighted ceiling corniche you find rarely in Brussels houses . All the people who has lived in this house apparantly felt a connexion with the architect or with its architecture, because no one deard to destroy any of the original details of the house.

We are a belgian family with 2 children, and this is the house where we live. We rent the house on Airbnb only the weeks we are on holiday. We love nature and nice atmosfeers. That's why we chose this place to live, at the border of the great "Forêt de Soignes". We couldn't live far away from everything, that's why we are only 2 steps far away from the center city. We love to share a good glass of wine with our friends, or to go for a hike in the forest. We also do a lot of activites with our children. We listen to jazz music and actual music, and our favorite filmakers are Clint Eastwood, and Jacques Audiard. One of the trips outside Brussels we love to do, is to go to the sea, at the border between France en Belgium: the beach is wild and facing a natural reserve. When we travel, we like to stay in a calm and confortable place, with old stones, and within a great nature. We appreciate if the host let us maps and informations about what to do in the area. It's even better if the host is there, and if we can have a nice discussion, and for instance share a local product.
Nous sommes une famille belge avec 2 enfants et nous vivons dans cette maison que nous ne louons que 3 semaines, pendant que nous sommes en vacances. Nous aimons la nature, voilà pourquoi nous avons acheté cette maison au bord de la merveilleuse Forêt de Soignes. Nous ne pourrions pas vivre loin de tout, c'est pourquoi nous habitons près du centre ville de Bruxelles. Nous aimons partager un bon verre de vin avec nos amis ou partir en ballade en forêt. Nous faisons aussi beaucoup d'activités avec nos enfants. Nous écoutons du jazz ou de la musique actuelle et nos réalisateurs préférés sont Clint Eastwood et Jacques Audiard. L'une des escapades qu'on adore, c'est d'aller à la mer, à la frontière entre la Belgique et la France, où les plages sont sauvages face à u!ne réserve naturelle. Quand nous voyageons, nous aimons nous retrouver dans un endroit calme et confortable, dans de vieilles pierres, et une nature magnifique sur place.. Nous aimons que notre hôte nous ait laissé des cartes et indications sur les choses à faire et à voir. C'est encore mieux si nous pouvons le rencontrer et avoir une belle discussion, ou échanger des produits locaux.
