The house is beautifully situated in the countryside. The river Scheldt is at walking distance and offers great possibilities for walking and cycling.There are several natural areas nearby (Gentbrugse Meersen, Kalkense Meersen). The centre of the great historic city of Ghent is only 10 km away and can be easily reached with a nice 30 min bike ride. The popular recreation park for small children, Harrry Malter, is less than 1 km away. Our town is centrally located in Flanders and Belgium and several large cities (Antwerp, Brussels, Bruges, Mechelen) are less than an hour's drive.. The train station of Melle is located at 1500 metres from our house and has good connections. The Belgian coast is only 45 minutes by car.

About Our Family

We (Delphine, 38y and Sven, 41) have 2 children. Our daughter Nelle is almost 5 and our son Magnus is 2 and a half. We like to enjoy nature on foot or by bike. We are looking forward to exchanging houses.


Health and familly relations are essential for us. We try to achieve this by practising a lot of sports (football, running, cycling, table tennis, yoga) and eating healthy food. Recently we've become a member of a CSA-project (community supported agriculture). This means we can harvest all year long biological vegetables at a local farm. Social contact is important for us, we like to invite family and friends in our cosy house and garden.
