Other things to note
Our house is a listed building and it is decorated and furnished with great care. We are sure that guests will appreciate that.
The entire building is non smoking. Pets are not allowed.
I travel a lot for my work, I collect old beads and I’m often abroad looking for new treasures. My favourite destinations are Morocco (the souks!) and Italy (Venetian glass, Murano…).
Beside travelling, I’m fond of good food. You’ll find a lot of restaurant-tips in my City Guide. Ghent is becoming very fast the mekka for foodies from all over the world…
We recently moved to Antwerp, I'm working on my City Guide!
