The first thing you’ll notice upon entering this 2-bedroom apartment for rent on Rue des Cygnes is the tremendous amount of natural light. The open-plan kitchen, dining and living rooms are bookended by huge windows. Decorated with soft neutral colors, there is a sunny atmosphere throughout. A large, comfy sofa and flat screen TV welcome you into the space, and the dining area, with a contemporary table and chairs, is right in front of the fully-equipped kitchen, partially concealed by a half wall. The bedrooms are spacious and just as brilliant, with large windows. A shared bathroom with two sinks, tub and shower does double duty as laundry room, with a washer and drier. There is also a separate toilet closer to the living room.

Ixelles: Based on the south of the city centre, this wealthy and culturally diverse area is home to many European and Congolese immigrants. Its history dates back to 1196, with the foundation of the Abbey of La Cambre. In the heart of Matongé, you will be able to find two famous shopping centres - the Galerie d’Ixelles and the Galerie de la Porte de Namur, which can provide you with everything you might need to have a comfortable life. Stroll around the famous Ponds of Ixelles, pick up a "gaufre" or a glass of wine at the outdoor market, and enjoy the scenery. With over 45 nationalities, it’s one of the most diverse and exciting neighborhoods in Brussels, perfect for those missing home and wanting to hang out with expats from their own country! The district is also a home to Vrije Universiteit Brussel as well as Universite Libre de Bruxelles!
