Because of private circumstances we are not yet able to have an exchange in the summer of 2017.
Our house is a comfortable home in a row of 4, with front yard and backyard. The living room is connected with the kitchen. On the first floor you will find the master bedroom and a bathroom, as well as our sons bedroom. The third bedroom, the washing machine and dryer are in the attic.
This house is situated in a quiet neighbourhood less than 1 kilometre from the shopping centers and the railway station (Houten). The centre of Utrecht can be reached within 10 minutes by train.
Houten is situated in the center of The Netherlands, near to Utrecht (10 km).
Utrecht is well known for its history, the Dom tower, museums, unique channels with restaurants and galleries.
Houten is famous for its bicycle friendly urbanism (national bike town award 2008) that is copied throughout the world. The village Houten has a nice old square (Plein, 7 minutes walk) with many restaurants. Around the railway station (5 minutes walk) you can find a theatre, a variety of modern shops, a cinema and restaurants.
South from Houten you can find the Dutch river system with beautiful dikes for lovely bike tours. Houten is situated in the heart of the Hollandic Water Line, ancient military series of water-based defences.
More about bicycling: see the hyperlinks at 'attractions' > 'Walks or jogging paths'.
The Netherlands offers many possibilities for art lovers. The most famous museums of the Netherlands are all within reach:
• Museum Het Catharijneconvent in Utrecht (10 km)
• Museum University of Utrecht (10 km)
• Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk museum all in Amsterdam (51 km)
• Mauritshuis in The Hague (69 km)
• Kröller-Müller museum with many paintings of Van Gogh and a sculpture garden situated in a National Park (Otterlo, 65 km).
Unfortunetly it is not possible for us to live in a house with cats, because of healthproblems.
We are a quiet, music loving, art interested and outdoor oriented family. Our hobbies are: playing piano, sport climbing en sailing/hiking. We all read lots of books.
We all had very interesting and nice days in your home! Thank you for this posibility!
We saw fantastic exhibitions. The Van Gogh exihibition was great. We were also in the Kröller Müller exhibition which was also wonderful. We made a very nice bicycle tour there and enjoyed the different landscapes.
A second bicycle trip went us to the Huis Doorn, were we had a guided tour through the palast.
The Anne Frank house was also very interesting, touching for us all. I read her diary once in school.
The highlights of our last day were the canal tour in Amsterdam and especially the Rembrandt House.We were very impressed.
We can highly recommend this clean and cosy home. We spend only one week in Houten and could have had one aditional week in order to see more of the landscape.
All the very best for the next home exchanges to the Bronsveld family!
Best regards from Margitta, Bernd, Karoline and Theresa
