Appartement in Herent


        After succesfull faraway and long term exchanges( Australia,New Zealand, USA, Canada, South Africa), we now want to discover beautifull Europe...We have two accomodations available for an exchange : a century old vicarage (presbytère) in France )( see BEFR 591) and an appartment in Herent, Belgium.The vicarage, comfortably equipped for a single occupation or a couple( no children, no pets), is located in Davrey, a small village in the Aube an area well known for its rich cultural heritage and, indeed, for the Champagne wine. The appartment's location is Herent near Leuven, in the heart of Belgium, 20km from Brussels..Leuven is not only known for its University but also for its architecture, excellent restaurants and homemade chocolate  The vicarage is perfectly renovated ,has a large garden with jaccuci and outside swimming pond (baignade exterieur).The appartment is well equipped for a single or two person occupation. We are a dutch/belgian couple. Johannes( 72) is a retired official of the European Commission and Sophie(53) is an art historian and (retired) florist..

We combine, at present, living in rural France with all the charms of the countryside where we own an old vicerage in the small village of Davrey( France) and the comfort of a modern appartment in the suburbs of the famous university city of Leuven near Brussels (Belgium)..But we frequently enjoy faraway travelling as well.Our most (senior home exchange ) experience covered the south of South Africa:we enjoyed immensely Stellenbosch and the Cape area during a five week visit.(jan/feb 2016.).
As for 2017, we would like to discover the south of France, Portugal, Spain.Italy, Croatia..The months of September and October are available for an exchange with our house in Davrey, our appartment in Herent or a combination of both.Photos and more information available on request..Languages spoken french, english, dutch
