A wonderful holiday home in a beautful location
We have just returned to the UK from a wonderful week's holiday in this beautiful location. Five of us stayed here, including 3 boys aged 15, 12 and 11.
The holiday home is situated literally at the water's edge and the uninterrupted views from the house are just stunning, particularly the sunsets.
We made full use of the boat which is moored directly in front of the house - you can row down the peaceful channel and into the huge lake at the end. The water is beautifully clear and perfect for swimming.
The house itself is excellently appointed and had everything we needed. The hosts are wonderful and are extremely helpful in giving general local information.
We visited Utrecht and Amsterdam (both half an hour away), the wildlife area in the sand dunes at Zaandvoort (an hour away) and spent a day at Walibi World, which was an amazing theme park with lots to offer families with both young and older children (and the young at heart!) - again this was within an hour and a half from the house.
Best of all were the hours spent on and in the water just by the house, the walks to the village of Breukelen and the cycling routes.
From a practical point of view, there is a large supermarket in Breukelen, cash machines, cafes and restaurants. However, we chose instead to barbeque at the house with an amazing view, sunset and a glass of wine, watching the herons, cormorants and swans..
Be sure to pack some insect repellent and enjoy yourselves (we all did!)
