Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Friesland third on Lonely Planet’s ‘Best in Europe’ list. Our house is in the middle of the best that Friesland has to offer.

Lonely Planet elected Friesland third of the ten ‘Best in Europe’ spots of 2018. It’s the first Dutch destination to ever end up so high on this famous list. The vivid capital Leeuwarden, the vast landscape, and the Frisian Wadden area were the decisive factors for this high ranking. The election of this cultural capital of Europe did not go unnoticed: ''It is well-deserved; not only is this year full of phenomenal Cultural Capital events, but the province is also bursting with nature, places where you can unwind completely''.

The writers of Lonely Planet have been traveling the world for forty-five years to discover special travel destinations. Best in Beetsterzwaag / Olterterp in Friesland is a bohemian village surrounded by forests. Strong points being the three and a half centuries old street with many historic buildings, the silent witness of the nobility who lived in the village in the 18th and 19th centuries. The estates belonging to gardens were once the delight of a few. Now they are open to everyone. Many art galleries and restaurants to be found in the area.

Beetsterzwaag is a lively village. Historical buildings are combined with shopping and quality restaurants, hiking- and (mountain) biking routes in the forest and natural areas and many art galleries.

In short Beetsterzwaag - Olterterp is a natural delight!

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We are very experienced home exchangers. We like open communication and are friends with many of the people we exchanged with. Our home is not perfect yet, as it is old. But it is warm and cozy with central heating, a fireplace and an AGA cooker. It is located at one of the most beautiful spots you can imagine on an old estate. We do not like it if people smoke.
