  • Description

    Description

    Me and my husband Maxime are a young couple enjoying life on the farm. We bought the farm last year from my parents, it goes many generations back in time. We have a family farm on which we have 2 horses, a bull, some chickens a dog and some cats. My grandma also lives on the farm in a separate house. We live very quietly in Damme, next to Bruges and 17 km from the seaside. We have a large house with a separate bedroom and a separate bathroom for our guests. We even provide a small kitchenette where our guests can cook for themselves. We provide food or ingredients, you can choose for yourselves.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Since or farm is quite small and traditional, you will be able to live very quietly here and enjoy the peace of the Belgian countryside. However we are only 3km from the small city of Damme and 9 km of the beautiful and historical city of Bruges. We have some fields on which we grow grains which can be an enriching experience for you to discover. There's a lot to see in the neighborhood and we offer bikes so you can move around to see some more of the surroundings. We can definitely help you to speak English, Dutch or other languages.

    If you like animals and being outside, you will like our farm. We are looking for helpers who can stay on the farm whenever we're not at home so we are sure the animals are ok. It's more farm sitting than anything else. We have lots of space and fun things to do, like for instance our vegetable garden where you could grow your own vegetables. We have a flower field where we grow flowers for own use. We have many fruit trees that provide us from fresh fruits in summer time. Our two horses, bull and dog love some attention and like to play around. The horses like to be brushed and run around in the meadows. It could be a great help for us if someone likes to brush them since we often lack time to do this.
