we are newly retired couple with a very cute poodle , and like bio gardening , walking and travelling. We collect natural fruit to make our own marmelade , cultivate our own vegetables and are fluent in English and french and would like to get better in german and spanish and widen our view on the world and other cultures. We live 15km from two big cities - mechelen and leuven and there is a busstop at a few minutes walk mechelen from where there are frequent trains to brussels , antwerp and the rest of belgium .
We are a considerate and polite couple and expect the same from the visitors. We are happy to explore new culinary experiences and are open to people with different diets as well.
We expect 4 to 5 hours a day which can be flexible in the sense that you could work a whole day and then take a day off to travel around Belgium as well. In return of your help, you'll have a warm, big room with internet and access to other amenities as well. We will consider you a part of our family and hope that you will feel at home.
