Hoeilaart is a commune located in Vlaams Brabant province (Belgium). It is a commune really near Brussels. 7 km from Brussels' center, some 12 minutes to join the capital city from Hoeilaart.
My "trips" to Hoeilaart were mainly to pay a visit to my best friend. Some days here and there, to have diner together, to walk in the neighbouring wood... To chill out before going to restaurant.
She guided me once in this area. But since she doesn't live there anymore, I wonder when I would return. I remember though it has some nice setting: greenery, a park with fountain, this town hall. Kind of a nice place to live (dorm?) in.
One of the tracks in the wood... Just inviting and refreshing. Very calm, bucolic.
Find in one of my t-logues some pics taken during those hours walking and chatting. As they are walks in the woods, you could find the bucolic touch of the page... Enjoy!
However, don't limit your appreciation to a countryside village. It has some nice (and expensive) restaurants, cosy villas and renovated houses of serrist.
