Since October 2004, foreign authors have been living and working at Villa Hellebosch for several weeks at a time. Invited by the literary association _Ñ_ëëHet Beschrijf_Ñ_ëë, some dozen writers from all over the world have resided here.
From 2010 onwards, different formulas for residency are proposed. You will find additional information on these possibilities under:
http://www.hellebosch.com/residents_aan2.php?lang=eng>Belgian, francophone and Dutch-speaking writers and translators
http://www.hellebosch.com/residents_aan4.php?lang=eng>Artists, essayists and academics from Belgium and abroad
These propositions are not exclusive. Other possibilities of residency can be taken into consideration. Don&rsquot hesitate to contact us.
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.
