Where can you find sand, sea and dunes bordered by beautiful old woodlands, all together in one place?Where can you ramble and cycle through the unspoiled countryside and do whatever suits your fancy, be that meandering around, finding an outdoor cafe, sunbathing or leisure shopping? The municipality of Bergen has a lot to offer the present-day tourist. The former fishing village of Egmond, with its pleasant beach, outdoor cafes and small shops; the ‘arty’ village of Bergen with an abundance of art and culture and the village of Schoorl is perfect for those seeking a more peaceful beach and splendid woodlands and dunes. The seaside resort of Bergen aan Zee has a very individual atmosphere, with a sea aquarium and kilometres of beach. The annual Jazz & Sail Festival is now a nationally known event.
The house,build with all natural materials, is located in a small child friendly park.Unlike other houses on the park it is not enclosed by other houses and has no passing (car)traffic.
We bought the place in 2008 to have a getaway within 60 minutes from our home in Amsterdam. We now live in Vancouver, Canada. We've always loved the Dutch coast especially in Northern Holland where the beach towns are still authentic and not so much developed as Scheveningen, Noordwijk or Zandvoort. The dunes and adjacent forest are stunning, we love to hike, run or cycle there. The villages of Bergen and Schoorl are quaint and relaxing. We drop everything when we get to our place and enjoy the pace&peace in this beautiful part of Holland. We hope you will enjoy it too.
