Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Historic 'coach house' build in 1880, only 5 km from the beach. Full of character, beautifully converted into a detached country house in the gorgeous seaside artist's village of Bergen, ca. 45 minutes from Amsterdam. The house features living and dining room and open fully equipped kitchen all in one large open space, still providing cosy nooks because of the clever way the conversion has been done. Double doors opening on a lush garden featuring 2 terraces. Sunny from morning till evening, shade provided by lush Catalpa tree.

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

A unique feature of this area is the variety of landscapes: stately woodlands around the ancient 'Oude Hof' estate, the highest dunes in the Netherlands, endless sandy beaches, pine forests, heather and the characteristic North-Holland polder landscape are all at your fingertips. Historic Alkmaar, a very friendly market town with canals as beautiful as Amsterdam's, with it's world famous cheese market, is 4 km away. Our house is located in a quiet family neighborhood of Bergen, surrounded mostly by historic houses and with lots of green.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Foremost excellent hiking on the endless sandy beach, in the dunes, woodland and polder. Beautiful historic village boasting amazing architecture from around 1900. It was very much frequented by painters such as Charley Toorop and Leo Gestel around the 1920s, who chose to make it their home, founding the Bergen school of painting. Nowadays one can visit the Kranenburgh art museum, offering a fine permanent collection of art by the Bergen school painters, as well as changing exhibitions of contemporary art. Historic Alkmaar, apart from it's world famous cheese market, is a quiet little gem and an excellent example of Hollands many historic towns. it is only a few minutes away by car. One also finds a railway station in Alkmaar (easy parking) with excellent connections to the heart of Amsterdam. Ofcourse one can also choose to travel to Amsterdam by car, but parking there is not always easy as well as very costly.
