This new apartment with private courtyard is located in a very quiet and rather unremarkable street in the heart of Ixelles, just a few minutes from hipster Flagey square. On the ground floor of a beautiful contemporary architecture house this apartment is so quiet and surrounded by its own greenery that you'll easily forget about the hustle and bustle of the city center or your day at work.
It is also within walking distance from the EU institutions and the ULB campus.
This apartment has been especially created to cater for the professional and leisure traveler looking for a spacious, stylish and brand new place to relax and immediately feel at home. A wall to wall glass door takes you to your own lush and visually isolated patio. Birds sing here all day long and the street is quiet. You will hardly believe you're in the middle of a big city!
Guests will have access to a state of the art 50m² apartment for four people (up to 5 with an extra mattress or a baby bed) designed and decorated with a special eye for comfort and beauty. The bedroom has a high quality mattress to offer you the best possible sleep. A convertible sofa in the living room makes for an excellent second bed. The open kitchen has all the essentials, with a double HOB, a fridge-freezer, a microwave and espresso machine.
・Free WiFi, cable TV, Apple TV and Netflix for full entertainment.
・Free phone with a local phone number to receive calls and use the internet on the move.
・Free use of the house's garage (if your car is up to 4,8m long).
・2 free bicycles upon request.
・Cot (child bed), high chair, and books, toys and games for the younger ones.
・Iron, ironing board, hair-dryer. Access to the house's washing machine and dryer upon request.
Two doors separate your apartment from my house, which occupies the upper two floors of the building.
The apartment is totally independent from the rest of the house, only the entrance hall and the street entrance are shared, so you can enjoy full privacy and independence.
But rest assured, for every need you might have I will always be there, physically or on the phone! You will also find plenty of instructions in the apartment as well as emergency numbers and other useful information.
Ixelles is one of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan neighbourhoods in Brussels with a bubbly street life and a high concentration of restaurants, bars and other services to satisfy everybody, from the alternative traveller to the professional, the 'good-looking' or the heavy-spending one. Some wandering around will reveal small bookshops, affordable ethnic groceries and restaurants or independent record shops tucked away in side streets.
Place Flagey (7 min walk) is a cultural and social hotspot in Brussels. A place to be. From music and movie (EMAIL HIDDEN) to a friendly beer at fashionable Café Belga, a stroll or jog around Étangs d'Ixelles (the ponds), the street market in the middle of the square on Saturdays and Sundays or a cheerful street dance one of those same evenings.
Just a 15 min walk up Chaussée d'Ixelles you will land in Place Saint Boniface, with one of the best concentrations of restaurants, terraces and interesting shops in town (alternative and branded). Saint Boniface is adjacent to colourful Matongé, the city's main African neighbourhood.
A 15 min walk from your Ixelles home in the opposite direction takes you to the heart of the restaurant and shopping area close to the ULB campus: cimetière d'Ixelles. Less crowded and more laid-back than Flagey this area has a charm to its own. And with one of the very rare shops of my favourite belgian chocolates (Galler :) ) avenue de l'Université will always be worth a detour! ;)
The apartment is very well located and connected.
Just 20 meters from the house you have the 59 bus end stop, which takes you to Park Léopold (spot in the middle of all main European Institutions and next to Rond Point Schuman) in less than 15 min. One stop after Parc Léopold is the Malbeek metro station, going to the city centre and the Gare Central Train Station. You can also walk from the house to any of the EU institutions in 20 to 30 min. By bike it'll take you less than 10 minutes.
5 minutes away is the 95 bus stop Rodin, on Av. de la Couronne , which will take you in less than 25 min to Grand Place.
Also 5 minutes from the house you have Tram 81 which goes straight to the main train station (also Eurostar) in 25 minutes and to Parc du Cinquantenaire and Sqaure Montgomery in the other direction.
The house is a seven minute drive from the motorway to Brussels Airport, the Brussels Ringroad and other major motorways.
Please use the courtyard if you smoke and leave the ashtray and cigarette butts in the outside trash bin.
Treat the place with respect so that future guests will enjoy the same wellbeing you found.
For the rest just relax, feel at home and enjoy your stay!

I grew up in open houses and I'm delighted to share the house that I love with people who will appreciate its warmth and cosiness.
I'm a free-lance interpreter working mainly for the EU in Brussels.
I was born in Chile, grew up in Germany and Spain and have stayed for longer periods in many countries, including the US and Syria. In Brussels this is the run of the mill. That's maybe why it feels so much like home.
I have a passion for sailing (especially the Greek islands), creating beautiful images and tasty flavours and dancing to latin rhythms.
I love big open spaces and nature in general, be it in the ocean or the wilderness.
