UCCLE, SO CHIC AND SO BEAUTIFUL
Uccle is a very chic municipality, second in size only to Brussels City and fourth in population. It is surrounded by green spaces: the Bois de la Cambre as far as the Forêt de Soignes to the east and the green walkway that runs along Uccle from the north-west to the south-east to reach the Forêt de Soignes, which covers a quarter of the area of the municipality. There are several parks in Uccle, including the Wolvendael.
Uccle has an airy, undergrowth feel to it. Several tram and bus lines complement the five railway stations of Uccle-Calevoet, Uccle-Stalle, Moensberg, Saint-Job and Vivier d'Oie. The cultural centre of Uccle offers a wide range of theatrical, musical and cinematic performances. There are several neighbourhoods in Uccle with high quality shops: the Saint-Job neighbourhood on the Chaussée de Waterloo or the intersection between the Chaussée d'Alsemberg and the Rue Xavier de Bue.
The Saint-Job market is held every Monday from 9 am to 1 pm and has been for 35 years. Some good restaurants are located near the square of the same name.
Buying a property in Uccle is a mark of prestige. It is therefore not surprising to see the highest prices in the entire Brussels region for houses, villas and flats.
