* About the area:

• The Hague (The Netherlands) is a middle-sized relaxed city located on the shore of the North Sea. It is the seat of the Dutch Parliament and Ministries. It is also the seat of all international embassies and of a multitude of European and international organisations (International Court of Justice, UN Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, European Patent Office, Eurojust and Europol etc.). There is therefore a big expat community, many museum and theatres (English-speaking), first class restaurants and shopping areas. It is a very green city, kid-friendly and you can go everywhere by bicycle.

• Our house is located in the Boomenbuurt in The Hague Netherlands. See google map:,4.2625014,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x47c5b0e6a3caec87:0x36942a9e7275cd5b

• It is a residential area, only 1 km (0.9 mile) from the Beach. We are very close to the most natural part of the beach called Zwarte Pad (no building along the beach only sand dunes, forest, cycle paths ). The house is also located close to the fishing village and sea resort called ‘Scheveningen’ where you also find the Harbour.

• You will find lots of local shops and amenities either on Badhuistraat, Stevinstraat/Gentsestraat, Keizerstraat where you can do your grocery shopping but also enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. We have a French bakery and a nice Italian restaurants within 5 min walk that we can recommend. We are 9min drive from Bronovo Hospital 12min from MCH Westeinde.

• The city centre of The Hague can be reached within 10min bike ride, or by public transport (tram 1). Tram 9 brings you directly to the train station Den Haag Centraal Station. From that station you can take a train for the Amsterdam airport Schipol, and Amsterdam (45 min on the train) and Rotterdam (15 min).

• From the Hague you can also catch a direct train to Antwerp (1 hours 20 min) and Brussels (2 hours). Paris is only 3 hours and 20 min, Frankfurt 4 hours and London 4.5 hours.

• Starting from our house, you can also go running or skating/skateboarding along the beach, enjoy beautiful bikes rides along the North Sea Coast (all the way to Amsterdam: 60 Km). Greg is a kitesurfer and regularly enjoys riding the waves. There are many kite-surfing spots nearby (waves and flat). You can also do some paddle/canoe/ponting on the canals next to our house.
