The house was not only exceptionally interesting (I have wanted to see a highly energy-efficient house for some time), but also very quiet and comfortable, in a pleasant, green zone with villas just outside Brussels. I came by public transport, which is why the location was not very convenient, but the other aspects of the house more than compensated for that.

Celine and her husband were very friendly indeed and spent much time showing and explaining their high-tech house to me! Yet even if it had been an ordinary house, I feel sure they would have been just as helpful to make my stay pleasant. Highly recommended!
