Felt like home - spacious, beautifully appointed!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfekte Erholung

  • 5 of 5

Wir mieteten das Anwesen für 2 Familien (4 Erwachsene, 6 Kinder) und fühlten uns von der ersten Minute an wohl. Das Haus ist großzügig und sehr geschackvoll und liebevoll eingerichtet, die Küche super ausgestattet, der Garten eine kleine Oase der Ruhe (Blick auf den kleinen Kanal und die gegenüberliegenden Schafswiesen). Die Kinder nutzten das Trampolin ausgiebig und erfreuten sich an kleinen Ausflügen mit dem Ruderboot.

Die Lage in Nordholland ist auch sehr günstig. In einem Radius von 30 Autominuten ist man am Ijsselmeer, an der Nordseeküste, in Alkmaar und jede Menge sehenswerter Städtchen bzw. Dörfern ... und auch schon fast in Amsterdam. Aber auch zu Fuß bzw. mit dem Fahrrad wird es in der näheren Umgebung nicht langweilig. Für uns also trotz Wetter, das hätte besser sein können, ein gelungener, erholsamer Urlaub. Kann ich vor allem größeren Familien vollstens empfehlen. Gruß, Alex aus Köln

Nous avons été enchantés de notre séjour dans cette magnifique maison ; Maison spacieuse (nous étions 9 et n'avons pas été gênés) ; Equipements suffisants, linge de maison au top, propreté impeccable !

Par ailleurs la maison est située à 150 mètres d'un petit supermarché (où l'on trouve de tout) ; Endroit idéal pour rayonner dans les environs (Amsterdam, Volendam, Zaanse Schans, Alkmaar ect ect

A RECOMMANDER ! Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances et ne rêvons que d'y revenir.....

Merci également au propriétaire de mettre à disposition une petite barque ainsi qu'un trampoline (notre fille de 9 ans a adoré....)

Je tiens également à féliciter les propriétaires pour leur excellent goût en matière de décoration (mieux que Valérie DAMIDOT....)

Zeer ruime woning van alle gemakken voorzien.

  • 5 of 5

We hebben met acht personen een lang weekend mogen vertoeven in deze prachtige, volledig gerenoveerde hooihuisboerderij. Van alle gemakken voorzien, ruime woonkamer met een plekje om t.v. te kijken of lekker te relaxen bij de openhaard. Prachtig uitzicht over de achtergelegen polder waar je met het bijbehorende bootje lekker een rondje zou kunnen varen.

Het weer liet dit helaas niet voor ons toe maar we hebben ontzettend genoten van de woning en de omgeving, echt een aanrader!

The farm:

Orgine terms of this farm and now used as a residence. This type of hay is a farm house farm distinguished by the distinct features on the outside namely dwelling, stable and Kapberg.

The farmhouse dates from about 1680 where fishermen were forced farmers to go after Prohibition in the Schermer.

About 25 years ago, the farm was completely demolished and rebuilt authentically. The contractor - at that time the current owner - has

the price received at the time the farm was built up on the way and the farm is listed as a national monument.

The view from the house is unique with beautiful views over the Eilandspolder. Completely in the distance you can just see the church tower west

beeemster, part of the municipality of Beemster. Beemster with its unique allotment is an especially area which now stands on world heritage.

Personally, we find the Eilandspolder better since the polder pragmatic is still in original condition and no allotment is applied. In addition, this is a

unique breeding ground for meadow birds. Swallows - in many farms happens that swallows nests

building between the tiles. Again, that is the case, you will notice that when nightfall kinds of swallows flying around the house looking

for food. The lower the better the swallows fly returns. The fact that there are aanweizig nests under the eaves is audible in upper

bedroom in the Kapberg.

The village and its surroundings:

The village Grootschermer is part of the municipality of Schermer. The

Schermer consists of the villages Stompetorem, Three Houses, South Schermer, Schermerhorn and Grootschermer. Grootschermer consists of approximately 400 people.

The village is in the area known for its cycling and skating trails. Fame is mainly due to the nature Eilandspolder.

Supermarket - The village has a small supermarket, larger supermarkets (Plus) with baker, butcher, florist and pharmacy is available in Ripe.

Workshops - 3x workshops available in the village. Most famous is the studio of Nic Jonk. Mills - In Stompetoren are three mills along the way, that middle one is a museum, interesting ...

Restaurants - Small village in hedge Noordeinde - simple restaurant so close ... Weapon of Munster in the Rime - super restaurant in homely atmosphere. Favorite of ours and many others. Highly recommended, always reserve. Tel 0299-671496 Aagje Blanket in Middenbeemster - unique place. Tel 0299 ​​-475179 Black Whale restaurant in the conservatory on the Zaan, after looking around at the Zaanse Schans. Fables restaurant in Bergen our favorite restaurant, nice and easy with children. Sissy Boy on the beach of Bergen hip and tasty hot and happening .... Enkhuizen is a delightful restaurant From Bleiswijk Grand Café-Restaurant with the best club sandwich in the world ..

Cities - within 15 minutes drive are the towns of Hoorn (nice walk along the harbor), Purmerend (Tuesday morning market) and Alkmaar (Friday cheese market in the center) reach.

Strand - Bergen aan Zee, about 20 minutes by car. At the Boys nice spot on the white couches, good with kids too, hope trendy people here ... Or really eat on the beach at Sissy Boy ...
