Where is it?
The houseboat is on the river "De Vecht", in between two small villages on a small rural road in the countryside but very close to the city of Amsterdam. It takes only 15 to 20 minutes by car or train. It's a true hidden gem right in the middle of nature but close enough to the city Amsterdam to go out for restaurants or shopping.
The houseboat is placed on a small dam with 11 other houseboats or ships. Although neighbours are close by, everybody has their own look out on a part of the countryside or the nature-reserve.
The small nearby village Vreeland offers some restaurants and a small supermarket. It has a Michelin star restaurant as well; De Nederlanden, Vreeland.
The area is well know for watersports, cycling and boating but also because of the beautiful manors in the area. There are some mills you can visit as well as the farms in the area. Most of all you'll enjoy the river, for swimming, ice skating or checking out all the birds, ducks and storks. (there are 3 natural stork nests which you can see from the terrace). Just take a book, sit yourself on the terrace, put some music on if you want, relax and look for the most impressive sunsets Holland can offer.
The houseboat is great for people who want to visit Amsterdam but who want to relax in a natural area after visiting the busy city. Other cities like Utrecht are close as well.
Kids love this area but they have to be able to swim as there's water all around. Small kids who can't swim yet have to wear a life jacket when outside.
One of our neighbours started a small catering company so there's a possibility to order breakfast, lunch or dinner for a good price.
