Apartment near Amsterdam, for 4-7 guests, free Wi-Fi and parking space

Are you looking for an attractive and characteristic Dutch property in a unique ambiance? Visit our beautiful furnished apartment. We are located at the outskirts of Aalsmeer, very close to Schipol and Amsterdam.

The River Amstel runs in front of and behind the pasture, right where our cows graze. Your dream holiday will come true when you sit on the dock and enjoy the views of the pasture.

There is a spacious bathroom with a shower cabin, an open plan kitchen and a marvellous living area.

To entertain the children, we offer go-karts, a big trampoline, a barn, a jet ski and a small football field.

Agricultural activities: Both you and your children can help in the farm. During summer, you can herd the cows from the pasture to be milked. They are milked twice a day. You can do it yourself or just be a spectator!

A perfect family vacation

  • 5 out of 5
What a wonderful week! My husband and I stayed with our two grandchildren, ages 9 and 11, for a week in April. The apartment was modern, well-equiped, and perfectly clean. The beds were comfortable. Best of all, the farm was perfect for the children. The owners have provided a lot of fun things to do and they are wonderful with the children. Ours had so much fun they preferred not to leave the farm at all and, when we did go out for sight-seeing, they were delighted to come back "home" to the farm. It was also a great learning experience for city-kids to get to help milk the cows, see the new-born calves, discover chicken eggs, feed the ducks and pet the sheep. We highly recommend a stay at Huis ted Lucht.

Couldn't have asked for anything more...

Couldn't have asked for anything more...
  • 5 out of 5
We chose to stay at Huis ter Lucht instead of Amsterdam because it was less expensive, but we got much more than we could've asked for!! The apartment was plenty big enough for my family (2 adults, 4 children aged 3-8). It was very nicely furnished with everything you can need to enjoy your stay at prepare your own meals. The farm itself was fantastic. The kids had an amazing time walking around and playing with the several cows, sheep and chicken that run freely. They were invited to help milk the cows, and although they were too timid, still enjoyed watching someone else do the work. On our final day there, the kids got to witness the birth of a new calf. Truly amazing experience for them! In addition to the animals, there was also pedal cars, a slide, a trampoline and a small football pitch with goals for them to enjoy. There was also a hayloft for the kids to run around and build forts and be kids. There was never a moment of boredom while we were there! If we ever are lucky enough to visit Holland again, we are definitely staying with Ellen and her family at Huis ter Lucht!! Thanks for everything you did to make our stay so wonderful!

Owner's Response: Dear Nicholas and family,

Thank you very much for your nice message. We are very happy that you had a great time here and it was a pleasure having you here. You and your children were enjoyable and enthousiastic, so it was very nice for us too. Sieto liked it specially that the kids helped him with the milking (I think he was faster back in the house for dinner than normal because of these nice helpers:-)). So thanks again and we hope to welcome you all back again in the future.

Take care and kind regards,

Ellen en Sieto

Great for Family Stay

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of five decided to stay here as it provided a great place to explore The Netherlands (Holland). It was incredibly expensive to stay in Amsterdam, so this was our next option. It was so much better than being in crowded Amsterdam.

The apartment was spacious and the kids had fun in our spare time on the farm. We stayed a week and explored 5 different towns. The kids got to see farm life (which only added to the overall experience). There were sheep, cows, ducks, chickens. There were riding toys for the kids, a trampoline, and bicycles we used. The owners spoke very good English and were helpful. There was a community washer and dryer for use by those in the apartments.

The location was a little tricky to find even with a GPS. We stopped and asked someone in the community for directions and that was helpful. The Easter week vacation was cooler than we expected, but we brought plenty of warm clothes.

Suggestions for items to pack: kitchen dish soap, dish washing detergent, laundry detergent, 1 Euro coins for the washer/dryer and rubber boots for the kids for walking around the farm. If you like wash cloths for bathing, bring these as well.

The only thing I would suggest to the owners is to add a small microwave to the kitchen (which was had plenty of other supplies).

Overall, 5 stars... we would recommend this to everyone!

A great family vacation

  • 5 out of 5
Huis ter Lucht provided an excellent place to stay for three nights with our three sons, ages 8, 6, and almost 2. The apartment was clean and well-kept. The kitchen was well-equipped. The deck off the back of the apartment overlooked a small pond and provided great entertainment for our youngest son. Even though it rained, there was still plenty to do: pedal cars, visiting the cows, calves, chickens, sheep, and playing in the playground in the hay loft.

The location is perfect. We had nice, easy, short trips to Amsterdam, Keukenhof, the beach, and even the grocery store.

Ellen was very helpful, friendly, and available. The listing is accurate.

Our children have asked to go back to the farm many times since our departure.

We would highly recommend it.

A Great Place

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great time here. The apartment was only a year old and very nice. The bedrooms are both upstairs and the bathroom downstairs, but that was not a problem for us. The kitchen was very small, but the best equipped kitchen we have seen in a holiday rental. We took our two small boys (3 and 1) and they had a wonderful time.

We purchased the breakfast, which we would highly recommend. It was quick and very tasty. It also gave us the chance to sample fresh cheese, milk, and butter from the farm.

We had great plans to see tons of stuff in The Netherlands, but we enjoy the location so much we just relaxed and enjoyed ourselves on their farm.

Séjour à la campagne pour profiter du pays

  • 5 out of 5
Nos vacances en famille avec nos 3 enfants ont été parfaites dans ce gite. La location est idéalement placée dans le pays : il est possible de rayonner dans tout l'ouest du pays en partant pour la journée. Amsterdam est tout proche et facilement accessible par la route puis le parking du stade de l'Ajax d'Amsterdam et le métro.
Les locations (6) se trouvent dans un bâtiment sur l'exploitation des propriétaires.
La location est neuve et très propre, décorée avec goût. Toutes les pièces sont spacieuses et lumineuses. La terrasse est très agréable : bien orientée, vue sur la prairie et elle donne directement au-dessus de la mare aux canards et de l'enclos aux moutons ! Le canal de l'Amstel passe le long de la propriété et un ponton est aménagé pour la pêche ou la baignade. Le long du canal est aménagé en piste cyclable : vous pouvez partir directement avec les vélos louables à la journée par les propriétaires ou à pied.
Les enfants peuvent circuler librement dans la ferme, tout est pensé pour eux : les karting et les vélos en libre accès, le grand trampoline, les animaux (moutons, vaches et veaux, chats et chatons, poules, canards), dans la grange une mezzanine paillée est aménagée en aire de jeux. Petits et grands peuvent participer à la traite des vaches de la ferme. Nos enfants (10, 13 et 16 ans) ont adoré s'amuser là pendant des heures !
Les propriétaires sont adorables : toujours disponibles, agréables et ont toujours
une bonne idée à suggérer ou un conseil à donner.
Enfin nous avons beaucoup aimé le pays (un peu boudé par les français car nous n'en avons pas rencontré beaucoup ) : tout est vert, propre, bien entretenu. Les jardins sont sculptés au bord des canaux. Les villes sont plaisantes. Les gens sont calmes, souriants et très agréables, engageant pour discuter, même et surtout avec des français assez mauvais en anglais !
Les qualités de ce séjour : reposant et dépaysant. Osez, vous ne serez pas déçus !

We live in a farm with 70 cows, 16 km from the South of Amsterdam. We love living in a farm and have given a new direction to our lives since 2010: we have built 6 new apartments that share the style of our company. 'Huis ter Lucht' is located in a unique place, along the River Amstel, and immediately it makes you feel as if you were on vacations.

Location of 'Huis ter Lucht': 23 km from the beach. The closest lake is 5 km away and the River Amstel is just 25 m from the apartment. The flower market in Aalsmeer, the largest in the world, is 4 m away and the airport is 13 km away. Among the 4 cities that are near, Amsterdam is the closest, while the other 3 are about 45 min away.

Other activities: graze cattle, milk cows, herd the cattle feed the ducks, many other things.
