Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

+++ WE ARE LOOKING FOR A SWAP FOR SUMMER 2019 Scandinavia, Letland, Estland Litouwen, Iceland, Poland or any other suggestions as long as there's a lot of nature nearby. Surprise us! We will be happy to answer you. Aart & Hilde

Our home is a spacious 3/4 bedroom house , with fully equipped kitchen and 2 bathrooms laid out over 4 stories.

Facilities include:
- Dining/ kitchen with large stove, microwave, fridge/freezer & dishwasher
- Laundry area with washing machine and dryer
- Courtyard garden
- Internet
- TV
- Use of bicycles and secure bicycle storage

Note that our house has a number of staircases and a balustrade on the first floor which may be an issue for little children and people who have difficulty walking stairs.

The house is situated in Amersfoort's architectural suburb 'Kattenbroek' right in the centre of the Netherlands. Amsterdam and Utrecht are within 45 min driving distance, the beach will take one and a half hour by car.
A great way to visit Amsterdam on daytrips and get back to a quiet home without tourist crowds. Utrecht is even better than Amsterdam: relaxed, trendy and good food everywhere! (and the worlds largest bicycle parking facilitating 15:000 bikes!)
