VILLA LA VECQUEE : STYLISH HOUSE ON THE HILLY OUTSKIRTS OF LIEGE

Fully-renovated Anglo-Norman style villa with a large organic garden (awarded "Best garden for the protection of wild life and biodiversity") surrounded by woods (with pedagogical paths, a brook and a pool with a BBQ area, and a vita trail).

Back from your visits to the historical cities of Liège, Huy and Namur (all three have a citadel) all along the river Meuse or from your walks in the picturesque villages all along the rivers Ourthe and Amblève or from the beautiful Ardennes (with famous cities as Spa, Stavelot, or the pilgrimage centre of Banneux in the province of Liège), you can have a good swim in a relaxing heated outdoor swimming pool (summer only!). Or simply enjoy a Weber BBQ on the sundeck.

BONCELLES has all the imaginable facilities (tennis courts, royal golf club, horse riding school, fitness centre, a fort museum, an outdoor olympic swimming pool, a dozen of restaurants, local shops plus a large shopping centre with CARREFOUR, DELHAIZE, COLRUYT, ALDI, LIDL (15 minutes' walk).

Our house is only 10 minutes' drive from Liège historical centre (citadel, roman and gothic churches, museums, local breweries, and local folklore of puppets).

Enjoy our lifestyle at home : our main hobbies are cooking, gardening, walking, cycling, bird-watching, reading, listening to good music and watching movies at home (large number of CDs and DVDs). In winter we enjoy the atmosphere of our wood-burner.

IIdeally situated too (maximum one hour drive) if you want to experience very different cultures in Brussels, Maastricht, Luxembourg, Aachen, Cologne, the Ardennes, or simply the neighbouring greystone villages of Tilff and Esneux in the valley.
You don't feel like driving? : just cross the road and step into the natural reserve of le Bois de la Vecquée (also the name of the brook crossing our garden).

And last but not least enjoy our uncomparable friendly welcome appreciated by all our exchange partners since 1988!

N.B. We have a nice cat at home to look after but all she needs is her daily food as she can pop in and pop out by herself through the catflap in the cellar.

Stile di vita

Albert works in IT (higher education). I'm retired from the same college (where I was his English colleague!) and spend most of my time gardening, socializing (sports), travelling with Intervac, and cooking for our family. We have two sons (36, 37) who are both married, are both civil engineers (and as such real globe trotters!). We have 4 grandchildren (3,5,7,9), who I often look after here at home, their playground. So there are many, many toys for them (bike, go-kart, LEGO’s, ping pong table, soccer goal, rackets, a large collection of DVDs and educational books...).Of course we also need some time to relax walking, cycling, tasting wine and food, and discovering other friendly places and countries around. Our garden has been selected by NATAGORA for the protection of biodiversity in nature (and I'm very proud of it!).
