Modern family home open for 2021

Our house is a modern family house and has a large living room with open kitchen, 4 bedrooms (2 with double beds), a large bathroom (with infrared sauna) and a fitness room. Outside we have a nice garden with jacuzzi and a beautiful tree with swing. We also have a ping pong table and bikes. In summer we have an outside swimming pool installed.

We live in a quiet neighborhood, in a village, very centrally, in the middle of Belgium, close to Mechelen and between Antwerp & Brussels. Our village has several good restaurants, 2 supermarkets, a swimming pool, a skatepark, a train and bus station, some playgrounds, etc.

All major Belgian cities are easily reachable by car and train. Mechelen, Brussels and Antwerp are closeby, but also Ghent and Bruges and even the beach are at easy driving distance.

Mechelen is a very child friendly town and has a lot to offer for both adults and kids. Climbing the stairs of the huge St. Rombouts toren is already a spectacle! For more information see: www.visitmechelen.be. Children will enjoy Plankendael (a big zoo with lots of activities and playgrounds for kids), the Toy Museum (Speelgoedmuseum), Technopolis (An indoor activity center of science) and the many big playgrounds and parks situated around Mechelen. You will also like the beautifull city center, the saturday market, ...

The historical towns of Brussels (with the grand market place, Manneke Pis, the musea, ...) (www.visitbrussels.be) and Antwerp (www.visitantwerpen.be) are less than 25 km away from our house and definitely well worth visiting in every season!

The Atomium, Mini-Europe, Kinepolis Movie Théatre are 15 km from our house.

A lot of fun activities are less than 15 minutes driving distance from our house, such as: bowling, ice skating, karting, movie théatre, several indoor and outdoor playgrounds, swimming pool, swimming lake with beach, sauna complex, walking and biking trails, shops, ...

If your kids like dino’s you should visit the Natuurhistorisch Museum in Brussels with big skeletons of dinosaurs!
The amusement park Walibi is only 40 minutes driving distance.

Amsterdam (2 hours by car) and Paris (3,5 hours by car) are also easy to reach by car of train (thalys/TGV). Germany (Aken, Köln) is +/- 2 hours driving, the city of Luxembourg +/- 2,5 hours. Lots of beautiful and well-know places are very easy reachable by car from our house.

You can also spend a day at the beautifull beaches of Belgium or Zeeland (the Netherlands) (110km).

You've must have seen the historical and medieval cities of Belgium (many of them are Unesco sites) and taste the nice food!

We are confident you'll love it here!
