Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Waterland - De Zwaluwen

Lovely and spacious farmhouse in beautiful surroundings for the perfect holiday

De Zwaluwen (the Swallows) offers all home comforts and is the perfect base for combining country-nature adventures with city (Amsterdam) tours..

This is a spacious house for max 5 people that has its own private garden with direct access to canals and lakes around. The area attracts many birds in the breeding season. This is the perfect base for outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, canoeing and running and city trips to Amsterdam, Utrecht and Haarlem. The North Sea coast and beach are at +/-. 40 car minutes, however there are small (sweet water) city beaches in the area (biking distance). Typical Dutch villages such as Marken, Volendam and Edam are at short distances.

De Zwaluwen is a beautifully renovated Dutch farmhouse with all modern conveniences. It has an open ground floor plan with dining and living room, fireplace, modern kitchen, hall and toilet. The second floor has a spacious master bedroom, two additional bedrooms of appr. 14 sq mtrs (one with a double and one with a single bed), a working area, bathroom (double washing basins, bath and walk-in rainshower) and separate 2nd toilet. Almost every room in the house provides beautiful views of the farmer’s fields and/or water ways. Breakfast can be provided at an extra charge of 10 Euros p.p/p.d. The house has all modern comforts including double ovens, microwave, washing machine, dryer, wireless internet, wifi.

The owners live around the back and can provide you with additional information and care. The situation of the houses and gardens are as such that you have your own peace and privacy.

Just Right

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (young teens) culminated our 11 day trip to Europe with four nights at this beautiful Dutch farmhouse in the idyllic village of Ransdorp. The house itself is beautifully designed and updated with a wonderful kitchen, 2 wc's, great shower and bath, comfortable beds, and open and inviting living spaces. The hosts are generous, warm and very helpful. The setting among farms with sheep, cows, abundant birdlife is super convenient to Amsterdam central station via the Park and Ride. Also, great for biking the Noord along the dykes to quant villages along the sea. We highly recommend a stay at the Swallows.

Owner's Response: Hi Linda, Howard, Hope you had a good return journey. Thank you for you fine review, we very much appreciate this. I am afraid to say but you had the last of the great weather, it has really turned cold and wet, today is a nathional holiday, Kings birthday, and not very promising for the big party. All the best and just maybe we will see you back at the Swallows, greetings, Michael & Leontien.

Jederzeit wieder

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschönes, sonnendurchflutetes und geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Haus mit allem erdenklichen Komfort (Gaskamin, Regendusche, Traumküche, Kinderspielzeug, Hochstuhl, Kräutergarten....). Unsere 3köpfige Familie hat sich rundum wohl gefühlt. Die Vermieter wohnen gleich nebenan, sind super nett und hilfsbereit. Kommunikation ist problemlos in Deutsch und Englisch möglich. Central Amsterdam ist mit Park+Ride in ca. 15-20 min unkompliziert zu erreichen. Wenn es einem in der Stadt zu quirlig wird, kann man herrlich auf der Terasse mit Blick in die wunderschöne Umgebung oder bei endlosen Spaziergängen und Fahrradtouren entspannen.

Wir würden dieses Haus uneingeschränkt an Freunde und Familie, insbesondere mit Kindern, weiterempfehlen.

September-Holydays in de Zwaluwen

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for families and couples. After our biking tours along the Ijsselmeer, to Haarlem and Muiden, we enjoyed the tranquility in the beautiful village Ransdorp as well as the well equipped kitchen, the comfortable dining place and living room and the pretty terrace with the view of the surrounding landscape. The house is stylish furnished and very neat and tidy. The ferry can be reached by bike within 20min - ideal to explore Amsterdam and to discover the interesting districts outside the touristic centre.

Many thanks for the hospitality! We are looking forward to coming again.

Wunderschönes Haus im Norden von Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus hat eine unserer Meinung nach ideale Lage - nur einen Katzensprung von der Innenstadt enfernt und doch sehr ruhig. So kann man sich nach einem Tag voller Eindrücke in Amsterdam herrlich entspannen. Das Haus ist sauber und gepflegt, es ist alles vorhanden, was man braucht. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Wir empfehlen das Haus gerne weiter!

Wonderful oasis next door to Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

Modern, immaculately clean farmhouse in a lovely small village outside of Amsterdam. Perfect base to experience Amsterdam but also the beautiful countryside outside of the city. The hosts are wonderful people and were very helpful about logistics-- like finding the closest supermarket and bike rentals. We relied on bikes to get around (two were provided with the rental). A car would be nice to have-- but not necessary if you enjoy bike riding and don't mind getting wet by the occasional rain storm or biking on days when the North Holland winds are strong. Highly, highly recommend the rental.
