You will find lots of supermarkets, local grocerystores, shops and bars.
There are a couple of parcs nearby as well as a nature reserve.
As Belgium is a small country, you can easily visit Brussels(30min.), Ghent(30min.), Bruges50min.). The sea ain't that far neather(1h) and the Ardens are reachable in 2hours. The Netherlands aren't as far a away as well:1 hour driving brings you to Rotterdam, in 1,5 hour you're in Amsterdam. Paris is at 3hours driving(or by train even faster).

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Brussels Zaventem -

The neighborhood is characterized by its rich and multicultural character. There is a residential villa area, there are mansions but also many workers' houses.
The Olympic Games in 1920 and the 1930 World Exhibition changed the neighborhood dramatically. There is not much more to be seen now, except for a lot of street names that refer to sports.
The center of Antwerp is reachable in a short time by bike(10min.) as well as by tram. Visiting the center by car is possible, but not recomended.
You can go hiking in the nearby Nachtegaelenpark, visit the Middelheimpark with its sculptures, walking through Sorghvliedtpark or go back to nature in the Hobokense polder.
The olympic pool is nearby, as well as a normal pool where you can enjoy jacuzzis or take advantage of the slide.
