House in center of Brugge near Beguinage. Also very close to First World War memorials area. Second house, with big garden, possible near the Belgian coast

Dear Home-exchangers,
We can offer the choice between two houses.
 
Luc's house (see pictures ) :
His large 19th century classical house is located in the immediate neighbourhood of the medieval highlights of Brugge : the Beguinage, St.-Johns Hospital, Our Lady's Church, museums and canals. http://foto.brugge.be/slides/slides.htm
There is a large living room , a sitting room, a fully equipped kitchen and a closet on the ground floor.
On the first floor 2 bedrooms with double beds and on the second floor 1 bedroom with double bed and an individual sanitary cel with shower. The beautiful art-deco bathroom on the first floor is furnished with a double lavabo-set, bath, shower and toilet.
At the back of the house is a small but adorable little garden with a sunny terrace that makes the link to a private garage for 1 car.
The house is equipped with all modern comfort

Filip and Ingrid's house
Our 1970's house in Koksijde was renovated in 2020. It is at only 10 minutes walk from the beach, and 35m minutes driving to Bruges.
The house has a small facade but does hide a spacious home wit big garden. From the terrace you have a nice view over the garden and the neighboring dunes. (protected natural area, see pictures)
On the ground level we have the garage, a dining room, a sitting room with open fire, the kitchen and a toilet.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms with a double bed and a small room with child's bed. The 1° floor has also a bathroom and toilet.
On the lower level you will find the master bedroom with adjacent bathroom and toilet, an office/playroom with acces to the garden.
The choice between the two houses :
If the choice seems difficult to you, we think that for real town-lovers Luc's house is the best setting. If you have children and you prefer a coastal setting, then maybe Filip and Ingrid's house is most convenient. But the choice is entirely up to you. Please feel free to ask for more pictures from Koksijde.

About Our Family

On the picture: Luc, Louise, Laura and Ingrid.
 
Our "home-exchange-family" consists of Filip (66), Ingrid (69), our children Laura (31) and Louise (29), and our brother in law Luc (65). Filip is a retired manager of a international rolling stock factury, Ingrid is a retired architect and did work at the Department of Monuments and Townrenovation in Brugge. Luc is a retired draftsman.
As Luc happens to be a single, our families have taken the habit of travelling together. That is why we can propose choice between two houses in exchange for your house.

Depending on the timing, our daughters sometimes, but rather exceptional, do drop in for a few day's.

Depending on the destination, the wishes of possible H.E. partners, the timing, ....we would like to bring our (well trained) dog Pipa. If we may bring our dog, we do keep her in a bench (big foldable cage), that we will bring along.

Lifestyle

We do love traveling (of course, that’s obvious as home exchangers), walking, movie’s, all kind of music, old buildings, modern buildings, modern art, musea ……good food.
Although retired, Ingrid is still very active as president of "The Bruges Foundation". A trust striving voor the conservation of old buildings in Bruges. Picture herewith is from a cloisters tree yard.
