A short drive away is our local town - Alkmaar, a great place to enjoy a mid-morning coffee, lunch or dinner in one of the great restaurants. From April to September inclusive, you can find out how cheese is traded according to a tradition that is centuries old, every Friday from 10am. There is also an abundance of open air music and festivals during the summer.

The Egmond beach (by car about 20 minutes) is roomy, broad and devolves seamlessly in the Beach of Bergen aan Zee.
