About the neighbourhood
There is a quiet beach where you can swim in the lake. It has a big terrace to dine outside. This is a very beautiful place for a honeymoon, a wedding anniversary, for writing, for reading a good book (books available too in different languages!)
but if you like to be more active: there are lots of opportunities to explore the countryside by foot, bicycle or by car.
It is a great place for bird watching and if you like horses you can watch the neighbor training his horses at sunset.
The area is very safe and we have a place to park your car.
Getting around
There are lots of opportunities to explore the countryside.Besides Edam and Amsterdam there are lots of interesting places nearby, like all the historical fisherman's places around the lake, Volendam, Hoorn, Enkhuizen etc. You can make daytrips to the North Sea, to the bulb fields or Keukenhof to see the tulips in full bloom (April), Friesland and Hindelopen. Everyone who likes to be in the countryside and at the same time near Amsterdam and many other interesting places in Holland will enjoy this place.
