Now we have a home-from-home in Jordaan, our favourite area of Amsterdam. Spacious, cosy, furnished with agreeable simplicity yet every convenience. Original artwork on the walls, large light-filled rooms, natural wood floors. Quiet house on a residential street yet with cafes, bars, galleries, markets and canals all around. Highlights for us were: talking with very friendly locals, browsing local markets and galleries, many hours drifting through Amsterdam on canal boats, and Rembrandt's house which is fascinating, atmospheric and moving (you can also make your own print there.) We travelled everywhere easily on foot and by canal bus.
