I wouldn't recommend Ixelles either. Where is your DH working?

I wouldn't advise going to Ixelles with children. I lived there as a 22 year old and it was great fun but moved to Woluwe and then Auderghem when we had children. I would read the link suggested.

Hello Cydra, Brussels is a great place to bring up dc.

I can't offer advice about Ixelles I'm afraid (I'm sure others will be along soon to offer tips, if not now, when they are back from holidays end Aug/beginning Sept) but perhaps as a start have a look at this thread particularly third post from the end about why Ixelles is perhaps not the most family friendly area in which to look.

There are lots of recent threads under Living Overseas offering
advice/tips if you have a further trawl!

Good luck with your search!

We will be relocating from Italy to Bruxelles. Husband is already there working and looking for a place to live. We had a look at flats in the ixelle area. having 2 girls aged 4 and 1, we also need to look at schools and nursery as im intending to go to work as soon as possible. I was wondering if there are anyone else living in this area or near by and is this a good area??
