house with beautiful garden and natural pool

Hello,
We are a sportive family with 2 boys from 14 and 16 years old
We have an independent, modern house with a large garden, a natural swimmingpool and a terrace. The house is 200 m² and it has 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 2 toilets , a storageroom and a large livingroom with open kitchen. We have TV, internet, Netflix and a playstation 3 that can be used.
We have a lot of toys: lego, playmobil, marbels, knex, little cars/hotwheels, ....
In the garden children will have fun in de natural swimmingpool or on the trampoline . They can play soccer and volleybal in the garden and we have a lot of outdoor games like spikeball, badminton and skate-or waveboards.
If you want to relax you can sit in our greenhouse, made of willow branches or drink an cocktail at our BBQplace/campfire or in the hammock.

Our house is situated in a quiet green area in the centre of Belgium, near Mechelen (16km), Leuven (17km), Brussels (30km) and Antwerp (40 km).
Belgium and our region has a lot to offer.
You can visit the beguinages in Leuven or Mechelen. This Unesco world heritage from the 13th century is a bewitching piece of pure relaxation right in the heart of the city. It has a succession of streets, squares, gardens and parks, with dozens of houses and convents in traditional sandstone.
In Mechelen, Leuven, Brussel and Antwerp there are a lot of monuments (towerhall in Leuven, churches, Central station in Antwerp, marketplace and Atomium in Brussel,.....)
If you love cycling or walking, you can plan your own trip. In almost every region in Belgium you have a cycling and walking network. Also for mountainbike there are marked trails in Haacht, Leuven, Mechelen,....

Belgium is famous for his beer. In our area there are several breweries you can visit to taste the different beers of Belgium. Belgian cuisine is varied and from high quality. There are good restaurants in Leuven and Mechelen.

For children you can go for a swim in the lake of Rotselaar (7km), Aquaparc Oceade in Brussel (indoor) or in the provinical parc of Leuven and Mechelen.In these two parcs you find also a large playground.

We did already 5 home-exchanges and we love meeting new people and places.
