We could not have been happier with our stay in this delightful house. All of us felt like we were at home in this spacious and comfortable accommodation. The little village was fascinating and the restaurant superb. There was easy access to a great number of tourist attractions, e.g. Volendam, Alkmaar, Amsterdam, Zaanse Schans to mention a few. Part of me does not want to recommend it as we would love to go back and if everyone finds out how good it is, it may not be free! If you want a relaxing time in North Holland I would suggest staying here. PS: In De Rijp, a small town nearby, we found a lovely baker next to the supermarket. Perhaps it is just as well I am not too near, otherwise I would be eating cake and bread every day. However, you could cycle on the many bike lanes through beautiful, and flat, countryside. My family is already saving to go back.
