Modern flat in Gembloux (Province of Namur - Belgium)

We have already made over 30 exchanges since 1982 and we always have been very happy of the experience.
Now we are retired, so we are flexible for the period and duration.
Our flat stands in the city of GEMBLOUX (Population :8.200). It’s situated in the Southern part of BELGIUM between BRUSSELS and NAMUR.
The environment is really quiet and pleasant to live.

Gembloux has a remarkable architectural heritage which includes: the remains of urban walls (12th century), the feodal castle of Corroy (13th century), a former Benedictine abbey (18th century), a belfry (UNESCO added it to the World Heritage list in 2005) ...
It’s a very good location for visiting:

  • BRUSSELS (50 km): the capital of Belgium and Europe, the beautiful Grand-Place and the Cathedral, the Atomium, many ancient and modern museums, …

  • NAMUR (15 km): the capital of Wallonia, a beautiful city along the river “Meuse”

  • LOUVAIN-la-NEUVE (10 km), the most recent university town of Belgium, and LEUVEN (25 km), the oldest one.

  • and many other nice and interesting cities: WATERLOO (30 km), DINANT (50 km), LIEGE (75 km), ANTWERP (90 km), GHENT (110 km), BRUGGE (135 km), …

Our flat is very spacious (120 m2) with all the modern comfort. It’s on the 4th and last floor of a new building built in 2010. It's very bright and completely oriented to the South.

Railway station and shops are very close. They can be reached by a footpath (500 m.). A trail of more than 50 km reserved for pedestrians and bicycles pass less than 100 m. of our apartment.
