  • Description


    UPDATE: we have a spot available from weekend of 20 november till +/- weekend 18 december!

    We're an Euregion (dutch-german) buzzling family living on the Belgium french-speaking countryside next to 3 cities (Maastricht, Liege and Aachen). Our language at home is Dutch. We are: Anouk (51) Maarten (51), Hugo (20), Lily (19), both studying in Amsterdam, Jules (17) and triplets Nina, Chet & Miles (10), our 2 dogs and a litter of 6 adourable puppies born end of september, a pig called Bisou and some chickens who produce delicious eggs.
    Anouk works fulltime for the city of Maastricht as a landscape architect (now partly from home) and Maarten has his own company: a 100% recycled stroller and works mainly at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven.
    We live in a beautiful big old 18th century house named Villa des Roses with lots of charm, a big ecological style garden, vegetable patches and a forest.
