Dreaming of a new life in Belgium ?

Some of you, my dear readers, do propably know the UK’s longest running relocation show, BBC’s ‘Escape to the Country’. A series which helps prospective buyers find their dream home in the country. Escape to the Country features a team of experts who assist a couple or family in obtaining their dream country home.
The series is currently running. This programme guides the spectators along the English countryside and shows us lots of properties on the market.
