Make a holiday apartment in Plantage your home away from home

HomeAway has an exciting choice of holiday homes in Plantage, a leafy and refined part of Amsterdam. Plantage holiday apartments are in a calm, green enclave, rich with history and within an easy walk of the famous Canal Ring. Rentals in this district date mainly from the 18th and 19th Century, with interiors that boast lots of original character but have been lovingly updated to accommodate today’s visitors. Apartments in Plantage are fitted with modern kitchens and bathrooms, and with Internet access you’ll have no problem staying in touch.

Things to do

-Visitor attractions. One of the great family days out in Plantage is the Artis Royal Zoo – it’s the oldest zoological attraction in the country, dating to the mid-19th Century. Today it’s complete with a planetarium, aquarium and museum devoted to zoology. The Hortus Botanicus is also in the area – it’s a beautiful botanical garden founded in the 17th Century to grow herbs for apothecaries and doctors.

-Museums. Amsterdam has a choice of museums that sets it apart from most European destinations. Find out about the Netherlands’ long relationship with diamonds at the Diamant Museum, see where Anne Frank hid from the Nazis at the sad but inspiring Anne Frank House, or see the world-class art collections at the Rijksmuseum or Van Gogh Museum.

-Canals. There’s probably no better way to get a taste of the city than by taking its waterways to see the many bridges, waterfront townhouses and houseboats. You can hop on a cruise from prime locations like Central Station and spend as long as two hours exploring the iconic canals. Some companies offer nighttime dinner cruises, while it’s even possible to hire a boat and navigate the waterways on your own steam.

-History. Amsterdam has one of the largest historic centres in the world, which managed to escape the widespread bombing that befell many other urban centres in Europe. Medieval remnants can be seen in the form of wooden houses at Begijnhof and Zeedijk. The UNESCO-listed Canal Ring combines 17th Century engineering prowess with stately architecture.

-Food and drink. A charming attraction in Plantage is the IJ Brewery, which is set in an old bath house beside the iconic De Gooyer windmill. It’s one of many places around Amsterdam where you can sample authentic local produce – at this brewery you can try a host of beer varieties. A similar experience can be had at the Reypenaer cheese-tasting rooms, where tasting sessions are accompanied by glasses of wine.

Weather in Plantage

Arrive at a Plantage holiday home in mid-summer and you’ll probably be able to enjoy some pleasantly warm weather. Temperatures during this season normally hit the mid-20s, and the days tend to be drier than other seasons. Autumn arrives in late-September bringing mild and damp conditions, and temperatures fall sharply as winter approaches. A typical day in mid-winter is relatively mild, and frosts are quite rare because of the expanses of water around the city.

Travel to Plantage

The airport for Plantage holiday accommodation is Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS), which sits to the southwest edge of the city. As a major hub for a range of airlines you’ll have little trouble finding a flight to this destination from Britain. If you’re driving to Plantage you can simply take the A4 and A10. Using public transport you can catch a bus or train to the centre of Amsterdam, and from there simply catch the metro - three lines run to Plantage from Central Station - or tram.

                                                          My sister and I stayed here for a second time this summer. Love the apartment, there is a bar and cafe at either end of the street and the supermarket for any little toiletries you forgot and food 5 minutes around the corner. You only need to walk 5 minutes to the nearest tram stop, taking you directly to the centre. I have no faults whatsoever and the contact person was kind, friendly and informative. Nothing, I believe this apartment is ideal for both long and short stays and can accommodate all types of traveller.
