What's in the neighborhood?


Let's take a walk in the neighborhood! Fosbury & Sons Boitsfort is located right next to the Sonian Forest and just 10 minutes away from Avenue Louise. Perfect for those who want to work surrounded by nature and yet enjoy the perks of the big city at night. We'd love to show you around!


From our top floor at Boitsfort, you'll have a breathtaking view over the immense Sonian Forest. It is a vast area of pristine nature dominated by beech and oak trees. A paradise for outdoor activities, and much-needed leisure area after a hard workday or even during lunch. The forest hides numerous attractions worth discovering, including some of the oldest archaeological remains of Belgium, and is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

"I bike through the forest everyday when I go to work and it is just magical! Everyday is so different but still beautiful. It puts a smile on my face first thing in the morning, LOVE it!" (Joy, Front Desk Officer)



The Bois de la Cambre is an urban public park on the edge of the Sonian Forest. It is linked to the rest of the municipality of Avenue Louise. The park comprises a small lake with an island in the centre, called Robinson's Island.

"Bois de la Cambre means two things : Apéro or running ... with a preference for the first one! ;)" (Joy, Front Desk Officer)



Avenue Louise
represents the height of modern luxury in Brussels. It is one of the most prestigious and expensive avenues in Brussels. Fancy a little bit of shopping? Here you will find the major department stores, designer stores and exclusive shops.

Avenue Louise



The Villa Empain is a private house in the Art Deco style by Swiss architect Michel Polak. This mansion is undoubtedly one of the finest masterpieces of Art Deco architecture in Brussels. This beautifully restored Art Deco masterpiece successfully serves its original purpose: to be a center for art and dialogue between the cultures of the East and the West. Definitely a must-see.

Concept farm, eco-responsible morning and evening, mobile bakery,... Les Terres D'ici is the kind of place where we would spend our lives. Located at the heart of the Sonian Forest. It's also a (market) garden production without chemical fertilizers, no pesticides, an educational center, a place of sharing for young and old and even a restaurant.

"When you arrive here, it seems like you’re in La Douce France. Beautiful restaurant with a big vegetable garden where you can go for a walk. Good food (with vegetables from the garden) & super cozy atmosphere." (Sarah, Calendar Manager)
