Something more about your co-residents
We are Luc (61 y.) and Kristel (57 y.). Our children have left home and we want to rent out part of our house. Reasons enough for this: the scarcity on the housing market, responsible (i.e. smaller) living, energy-saving living, ... We use as many ecologically sound materials as possible in the home. We are therefore happy to receive tenants who have an affinity with ecological living, non-smokers.
We like to share interests with others and we like peace and a natural environment. We speak Dutch, English, French.
These things we like to do togther
We like both quiet solitude and social contact. Since all spaces are for private use, we like to coordinate with the candidate what feels good to do together.
