About the property

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.

Excellent Host

  • 5 of 5

I had booked a week stay at this property. Unfortunately we had to cancel. However I wanted to comment on how professional courteous and prompt my communications were with the owners. From the beginning they were thorough and informative and went out of their way to ensure the accommodation's were adequate especially since I was travelling with my elderly mom. Once alerted that I needed to cancel they promptly responded and per the policies refunded me quickly. I wish them much success.

Absolutely Perfect Introduction To Holland

  • 5 of 5

Den Zwaluen is the most beautiful house in an idyllic setting. Michael and Leontien were so helpful and welcoming. We loved riding the bikes and walking to the neighbouring villages. Wished we had a lot longer.

Absolutely adorable!

  • 5 of 5

We truly LOVED our stay at the Swallows. It is nestled in the cute community of Ransdorp -- surrounded by green fields and canals, with cobblestone streets and a beautiful church. The canals bring swans, herons, and other birds to the area, while sheep and goats graze in the fields surround the little community. We rode bikes around the area and were heartened by the sweetness of it all. The home is beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and an awesome kitchen and lovely bathrooms. A short drive will take you to the most delightful little market with fresh meats, breads, and produce. It is a short drive to Amsterdam central, or a train ride if you prefer. All was amazing and exceeded our expectations! Communications with the owners and caretakers were perfect. Thank you so much!

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.
