Great house - great location

  • 5 of 5

For anyone wanting a spotless, modern furnished house near Amsterdam but in a picturesque quaint village, this is ideal. The owners are incredibly helpful and friendly, as is the "caretaker" who lives right across the canal. The kitchen has everything you need for eating "in." The beds are very comfortable, too.

The town has a small supermarket, bakeries with good breads, a delI and some excellent restaurants all within walking distance. The view from the living room is very pretty - the canal with its boats and a church with the steeple lit at night.

Getting to nearby towns such as Volendam, Marken, and Edam is a snap, and with the A10 ring road that's 10 minutes away, you can get to all tourist sites easily.

We highly recommend Dutch Buoy.

SHORT ORIGIN OF THIS REGION, NORTH OF AMSTERDAM

"Human beings started to quit the North Sea coast in the tenth century and They moved inland to the peat zone. The domes and cushions or peat, standing four meters proud of the bog itself, looked like the mounds, hillocks or the child-which HAS used as refuges before. A century of drought made the bogs Seem almost accessible, and if drought could do that, man could do better. All it was firing ditches and canals to drain off the water from the high peat domes to the pools That pockmarked the low bog, and you can dig a ditch with the tools any peasant owns: no new technology required. Once drained, the land could be farmed. All the sodden peat in Waterland-which is just north of Amsterdam, Became land for farming in this way. ............ The town of Medemblik sat in Waterland on the side of the Almere Lake. It was a transit town for freight coming from the Rhine and heading to the North Sea on its way to Scandinavia and England. .......... The sea broke into the lake and it turned brackish and tidal: what was used to be called the Zuider Zee ......... .. Between 1100 and 1300 most of the Zuider Zee was lined with dikes to stop the land washing away ......... The Dutch already had the reputation for managing water ...... "free ground with free people" ... .. Peat mining Became an industry: for fuel and breweries from Amsterdam to Antwerp ...... The towns had ruined the peat grounds withtheir appetite for fuel and now the factthat the ground was spoiled led to the building of dams and the new towns around them : towns like Amsterdam "......... and Monnickendam. (Pages 170-175, "The Edge of The World, How the North Sea Made Us Who We Are" by Michael Pye, 2015, Penguin Books).
