“In may 2009 we swapped houses with the family de Preter. We loved the house, the kids loved the toys and the trampolin in the garden. The centre of Leuven is nearby. A most beautiful city, with old buildings and lots of restaurants and terraces. While the kids didn't want to site-see the townarea every day, we also went to 'het provinciaal domein'; perfect day for the kids. The city Brussels is only 30 mn. away. Also worth visiting. We met the family when we arrived so we could swap keys. We had a warm welcome in Leuven, they even left lasagne in the fridge for the first day! We would recommand this family's home and there hospitality!”

“We really enjoyed our exchange with the de Preter family.They were incredibly flexible, understanding and charming people. They gave us a lift to and from the station and even left us some Belgian beers, chocolates and lasagne in the fridge. The house is very roomy and convenient and comes three cats that wonder in and out from time to time, which our girls loved! Leuven is typically Belgian, medium sized town not far form Brussels but much nicer! Thoroughly recommended!”
Where is it?
Our house lies at walking or biking distance from Leuven, a very lively university town with lots of great and affordable restaurants and pubs. Brussels is only 15 minutes away. Antwerp, Ghent, Bruges, the North Sea, Lille, Liège and Cologne can all be reached within 1 - 2 hours. Paris and Amsterdam are possible as a daytrip. We have a small 2nd car (Renault Clio) which could be exchanged, but a bike and/or bus/train will also get you to any major destination. Leuven itself is surrounded by some beautiful green areas where you can go for a walk or a bike ride.
