Overview

This bright studio apartment for rent on Avenue Ducpétiaux is on the 4th floor. There are two tall and wide windows. One is in the kitchen space and the other in the living area. Although this is an open-concept studio, the kitchen is set a little bit back from the rest of the space. It’s fully equipped with lots of storage. The bathroom is cozy and includes a shower stall. The living area window overlooks the street. This cute room is furnished with a sofa bed and a couple of additional chairs, a wardrobe, and a 2-seat dining table.

Saint Gilles is a large neighborhood with art nouveau buildings here and there. The Horta Museum is a 15-minute walk down the street. It’s not the only museum in the area. You’re also living on the edge of Forest Park, where you can walk, jog, or read a book at your leisure. There are a few restaurants and breweries nearby. You’ll find a bakery and supermarket around the corner. And you can shop for various items at the Midi Market, held at the Brussels-South railway station every Sunday.
