  • Description


    I am living on my own in a quiet place close to the historical city of Bruges, Belgium. I can offer you a room for one or two persons in exchange for help in and around my house.
    I am a vegetarian, I live as ecological as I can (I have no car, but enough bikes) There is good local transport around.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The Unesco world heritage city of Bruges is 15 minutes by bike. Gent, Antwerp, Brussels are all reachable in circa one hour by train. The seaside is approximately 20km from my place. Biking to Holland is also a very beautifull daytrip.
    I like to exchange thoughts about cultural identity, language, art, literature. I'm not going to take you out at night, but I have grandchildren who will like to do that, if you wish.
    Im not always in the house, as I have many hobbies and friends as well as a big family. But you are free to be on your own in the house, when i am not there.

    Can you help me to make a new and safe refuge for my chickens, do you like to work in the garden? i have a small garden with some vegetables. Besides, I'd like to get some help with painting in the house. If you can cook from time to time (vegetarian), I would be glad.
