|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
The village of Kortenhoef is part of the authentic lake district, near the big city of Hilversum and also close to Amsterdam, Utrecht and Schiphol Airport. Very nice surroundings, ideal for biking and boating, with old little towns along the river Vecht..
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.

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).
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."

Dear Christian and Willemine,
We just wanted to say thank you for letting us book your lovely guesthouse in Kortenhoef. It is such a beautiful house and we had a great time!You have thought of everything from the bbq to the lovely kitchenware.
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.

The cottage is in a fabulous setting and ideally situated for travelling around Holland - Holland is truly a wonderful place, clean and friendly, lovely beaches and the weather was great also almost everybody speaks English. The hosts are lovely and helpful and very friendly and it was great fun having use of the bikes and the especially the boat. The property was clean and well maintained and we would definitely recommend this property, we loved it.
Die Lage des Hauses war top.Man konnte sich allein in dem Garten am See schon erholen.Einziger Kleiner Wermutstropfen eine vielbefahrene
Hauptstrasse ca 150m vor dem Grundstück.
Das Ferienhaus war sauber und liebevoll eingerichtet.Besonders gefiel uns,daß zum Haus ein kleines Motorboot und Fahrräder gehörten.
Die Vermieter waren sehr nett.Besonders Frau Kellermann kümmerte sich sehr liebevoll um uns.
Dieses Urlaubsdomizil würden wir jederzeit weiterempfhlen.
Uns gefiel am besten die kleinen holländischen Städte und Dörfer,mit ihren hübschen Backsteinhäusern,den vielen Windmühlen,den Seen und Kanälen mit dem Fahrrad zu erkunden.
