Michel (57) is retired (head chef in a sea-side hotel of the army). I like real cooking, reading, listening to music (I am a huge fan of Deep Purple), TV, gardening, traveling;

and now I really am into photography...

I hope you will enjoy the Flemish dish I prepared especially for you

Gina and I are a happy couple since 1977 and have been married since 1982.

home exchange

2016

 
 
   
 

 

We like having nice things ourselves and therefore we know how to take care of them.

We are considerate people and will do whatever we can to make sure that your home and belongings are left in the same conditions as we found them.

We are non-smokers.

We have a home exchange insurance for possible damage.

On this site you can see the Belgian school holidays.

You'll find our offer on homelink

If you wish to, you can write something in our guest book

to see our home, please come through the hallway door:
