vacances formidables dans un petit paradis !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine de vacances fantastique chez Leontien et Michael. La maison est très belle, très confortable, très sûre pour les enfants en bas âge (nous sommes partis avec nos 2 filles âgées de 5 ans 1/2 et 14 mois). Visible depuis chacune des fenêtres, la campagne environnante est exceptionnelle. Hérons, grues, cigognes, canards sauvages cohabitent avec les vaches, moutons, chevaux, lapins, dans une ambiance bucolique assez unique. Un petit Eden aux portes de la ville ! Les magnifiques villages du Waterland sont tout proches (Marken, Edam...) et les abords du Zuiderzee doivent absolument être parcourus à vélo ! Nous recommandons chaudement cette adresse, y compris pour l'accueil exceptionnel de Leontien et Michael, devenus plus que de simples hôtes en seulement quelques jours

Le Bonheur à l'état pur !

  • 5 of 5

Fort heureusement nous sommes tombés sur ce petit coin de paradis ! Nos vacances n'auraient pas été les mêmes sinon... La maison de Leontien et Mickael, nos hôtes charmants/sympathique/super-accueillants, c'est l'endroit idéal pour se retrouver en famille, en pleine nature, à 15 mn seulement du cœur d'Amsterdam (montre en main!). Avec deux ados et un petit garçon de 2 ans et demi, tout le monde en a eu pour son plaisir. Le village, sublime, regorge de chemins pour courir au bord des canaux le matin. Et le soir, au coucher du soleil, Mickael a l'extrême gentillesse de mettre ses canoës à disposition pour aller à la rencontre du chant des oiseaux, à travers les canaux, au pied de a maison... C'est L'ENDROIT où passer du bon temps à Amsterdam !!! Nous y retournerons entre amis...

A perfect house in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at De Zwaluwen. The house is really lovely, with everything needed for a comfortable, enjoyable stay. We hired bikes for the week, kindly arranged for by Michael and Leontian, and we cycled everywhere! There are safe cycle paths to use from the house into Amsterdam (very easy) and out to Marken and beyond. The house is perfect for a family holiday and ideally placed to explore Amsterdam. We loved our stay here, Michael and leontian were the best hosts and we really didn't want to leave.

Beautiful house in peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

The old farmhouse has been extensively restored, is amazingly spacious, bright and clean and has very modern, complete equipment and facilities. During breakfast on the terrace we overlooked green pastures with grazing sheep and watched herons, swans and migrating geese.

The city of Amsterdam is close: Within a few minutes by car we reached the park and ride area from where the tram took us to the central station.

The homestay also served us as a base for excursions to the surroundings, touring on the canals by electric boat and visiting Edam and the picturesque village of Marken.

Last but not least: Michael and Leontien are fabulous! Without being intrusive they are extremely attentive, helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our one-week-stay in De Zwaluwen very much, also thanks to Michael's and Leontien's great hospitality.

Unlimited recommendation!

Wunderschönes Feriendomizil in Ransdorp

  • 5 of 5

Lieben Dank unseren Gastgebern für diese wundervollen Tage in ihrem Ferienhaus. Für alles war gesorgt, gemütliches Haus - ja wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Nähe zu Amsterdam, der Keukenhof, eigentlich noch mehr Ziele, die wir leider innerhalb der vier Tage nicht alle geschafft haben. Daher bleibt nur zu sagen, dass wir in dieses schöne Haus und die naturverbundene Umgebung gerne wiederkommen möchten.
