Luxury real estate: buy properties in Belgium

Situated between France and the Netherlands and on the coast of the North Sea Belgium is a relatively small country with a population of around eleven million people. It is an ideal location if you are looking for a luxury property to rent or buy in Western Europe. It has first class air, rail and motorway links with all surrounding countries including a direct rail link to the UK using the channel Tunnel. The country has two distinct regions, Wallonia to the south where French is spoken and Flanders to the north where Flemish is the main language. 59% of the population are Flemish and 41% Walloons. Sitting astride the two regions is the capital city Brussels. Due to this being the home of the European Union the city has an international flavour which when added to a stock of historic buildings means that luxury properties are not in short supply. Belgium also has many other fine historic cities such as Antwerp, Bruges, Ghent and Liege each with its own distinct culture. If the countryside is more to your taste then head south east to the Ardennes. This forested area of hills and valleys has wonderful wildlife and a range of outdoor pursuits. Finally the Belgian coast whilst not renowned for hot sun has miles of flat soft sand and is ideal for those that enjoy sailing and other water based pursuits.
