About our home

Our cosy detached family house is in the middle of all big cities in the Netherlands. It is an excellent place to stay and visit Amsterdam (48 km), Rotterdam (30 km), The Hague (13 km), Utrecht (58 km) and in spring the colourful bulb fields with tullips and hyacinths (10 kms). We have a train station at the end of the street which connects easily to all major cities within an hour and for more local destinations a bus stop around the corner.
We live at walking distance (5 mins) of a charming old village center with restaurants, shops and bars. And we are next to a supermarket (1 min by foot). And about 15 -20 minutes from the nearest beach, by car. As we have 3 boys and a girl (all teenagers) it is very welcoming for families. We are close to the sea and a lake for summer activities. We have 6 bikes and car which ca be swapped. As I used to be a tour guide we can provide you with good advice if needed.
We live in a free parking area, with always enough places to park your car.
