“Nous avons passé de très belles vacances chez Mark et Tjakien. Nous avons eu plusieurs échanges par mail et téléphone avant notre séjour pour tout organiser. Nous avons été très bien accueillis dans leur belle maison, idéalement située pour visiter Amsterdam (20 minutes en métro) et ses environs (en vélo, en voiture). Nous avons pu pratiquer les pistes cyclables en toute sécurité avec les enfants, avec les vélos mis à notre disposition. Nous vous recommandons vivement d'échanger avec la charmante famille Bakker ! ”

Where is it?
Our house is situated at the green outskirts of Amsterdam, near the picturesque little river Gein and the small city of Weesp and the villages of Abcoude and Baambrugge. All are worth a visit, a walk or a bicycletrip. In the park behind our home you might encounter the freerange cows that graze there during summertime. If you love walking, you can start your walks right behind our garden, towards the park and into the country side. Walk or bike along the river Gein, enjoy the country side and take a drink on one of the terraces in Abcoude or Weesp. Furthermore, there are plenty of nice restaurants in Weesp. Of course, Amsterdam is only 30 minutes away, by metro. Admire Rembrandt and Van Gogh in the museums, enjoy the terraces, shops, and all the famous places of our capital.
There is a small beach just in front of our neighbourhood, at walking distance. The water is clean and it's also safe for (small) children. At a rainy day you might consider to visit the indoor-children's playground of 'Ballorig', situated next to the parking at the beach. Farm-restaurant 'Langerlust' is located at walking distance, in the direction of Weesp. Small children can play outside safely, because of the walking area around our house. There are several playinggrounds in the neighbourhood with slides, merry-go-rounds or climbing racks. Children can also bike safely and independantly on the special bicycleroads (free of cars) in the neighbourhood.
If you like to visit one of the Northsea beaches you can easily drive to Zandvoort, Bloemendaal, Heemskerk or Schoorl, all within an hour's drive away.
