Description of Organisation:

Villa Hellebosch, a spacious property surrounded by rustic parkland, in a domain of several hectars with meadows and hundred-year-old beech woods, is hidden away in the folds of the hills and valleys of the Pajottenland countryside.

The hostess, Alexandra Cool, opens her home as a welcoming space where writers, translators, artists, essayists and academics can work, meet and live in complete tranquillity.

Villa Hellebosch is situated at Vollezele (Galmaarden), 25km south-west of Brussels, in a region of the Flemish Brabant, close to the linguistic border.
