“We loved our stay at Bregje and Jacco's house and felt very lucky to be staying there . Everything was perfectly prepared for us, including bikes and a bottle of wine, and we felt very welcome. Bregje communicated regularly and clearly with me. The house is in a lovely, friendly neighbourhood with a good selection of restaurants, interesting shops and a beautiful park just round the corner. The station, which connects with Amsterdam Central in 6 minutes, was just 10 minutes walk away and so we were able to explore Amsterdam at our leisure and return from the hectic hustle and bustle to this peaceful setting every evening. It was lovely to be able to walk out in the morning and get fresh bread or to pop to a coffee shop for breakfast. We look forward to welcoming Bregje, Jacco and the children to Oxfordshire! Thank you for a great stay.”

Where is it?
The area we live in is very child friendly, it has lots of play grounds. And for everyone it offers green parks, ancient 1900 houses, bars and restaurants. This is a neighborhood with not too many tourists, where you can experience the real Amsterdam.
Apart from the more known activities and sights like musea and canals there are many other things to explore in or around Amsterdam. We'd be happy to help you with information on this, for instance:
- Large swimming pools Flevoparkbad (outdoor) and Mirandabad (outdoor and indoor) are close by. www.amsterdam.nl/flevoparkbad/ or www.amsterdam.nl/demirandabad/
- The Zoo has picknick evenings with music on Saturday evenings for the whole family. www.artis.nl/en/ We have some tickets for you.
- You can reach the beach in 45 min by car of travel by train. If you think that is too far, within cycling distance (20 min) you can reach the beaches on IJburg and Diemen: Strand Diemerpark (Diemerpark), Strand Blijburg (IJburg), or jump into the canals, there are some places where you can have a lovely swim. www.waternet.nl/en/our-water/surface-water/safe-swimming/
- Food market once a month in the nearest park.
And if you want to explore more of the Netherlands, in our country nothing is far away.
