We live (my daughter and I) in a very beautiful house in Overijse. 15 min. drive or else 40 min. cycling from Brussels (heart of Europe).
The house is just behind the famous forest South East of Brussels called Forêt de Soignes.
We live with Bonnie (cat), Blues and Jazz (dogs). The three of them are real sweethearts.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Brussels is a thrilling capital in central Europe with lively cultural and social scene. The opportunities here to exchange, cultural wise, with the XXL expat community and with the very easy going Belgian community are really endless.
Overijse is a very green area offering lots opportunities for walking, cycling, horse riding, ...
Buses to Brussels or university town Leuven close to the house (8 min. walk).
A car can be parked on the street in front of the house. We also have a bicycle at your disposition.
We are looking for somebody to help us with the daily chores (cleaning, animal care, gardening and other outside works) and DIY little works (someone with building, renovation and DIY experience is our preference)
The house, garden and environment are really unique.
We offer a very cosy and beautiful room. We just expect honesty, cleanness and good help in exchange.
Food is not included. Nonetheless when my daughter or myself do cook we normally cook more to share. You would have space in the fridge and freezer for your stuff.
You will have a quite independent and large room.
It is a quite independent space with its own terrace and accesible also directly from the exterior. The room has its own tv with lots of international channels and its own Netflix.
The house itself is very cozy and luminous. It is situated in a very peaceful street with lots of trees and nature around. There is also a big garden with fruit trees and a small “cute” swimming pool for the summer and beautiful terrasses. For winter we use the fireplace a lot.
Of course we can help you discovering and enjoying Brussels & Belgium as well as with tips on where to go, how to mingle in, how to get in the local scene, etc, etc
