Holiday Home in Kortenhoef, Nr. Hilversum (Lake District), Netherlands - Boating And Swimming Only 20 Mins From Amsterdam

The house is very cosy, with underfloor heating and all the necessary amenities. Included are 2 bikes and a little boat. A watersports centre with sailing boats for rent is nearby, so are a lot of nice waterfront restaurants. A friend of ours is offering roundflights with a private plane.

Christian purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Christian chose Wijdemeren

This is our very comfortable guesthouse, which was built in 2008.

The area is quiet, beautiful nature, ideal for water(sports) lovers, for hiking and cycling in nature reserves, but still near the big cities like Hilversum (6km), Utrecht and Amsterdam (20km).

What makes this cottage unique

Privacy. Terrace on the waterfront, swimming, fishing, use of a rowing boat with electrical outboard, use of bicycles. Comfortable house, central heating, underfloor heating.

"Hi Willemine & Chris,

We had a wonderful time in Holland mainly thanks to our fabulous lodgings, so very many thanks for renting Papageno to us for the week. It was lovely to wake up in such wonderful surroundings with the water lapping at our front door. The efforts and imagination you have put in to every detail made the whole week magical for us."

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Willemine & Chris,

Back home after a lovely break, refreshed and ready to take on the world again. We had a wonderful time in Holland mainly thanks to our fabulous lodgings, so very many thanks for renting Papageno to us for the week. It was lovely to wake up in such wonderful surroundings with the water lapping at our front door. The efforts and imagination you have put in to every detail made the whole week magical for us. Amsterdam getting ready for Christmas was what we came to see but cycling along the dyke (or in my case wobbling), the walking round the nearby towns and villages and visiting the windmill, all combined to make this one of our most memorable holidays in a long time with memories we will treasure. So here's to you both and many thanks again. Seasons greetings.
