|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Where can you find sand, sea and dunes bordered by beautiful old woodlands, all together in one place?Where can you ramble and cycle through the unspoiled countryside and do whatever suits your fancy, be that meandering around, finding an outdoor cafe, sunbathing or leisure shopping? The municipality of Bergen has a lot to offer the present-day tourist. The former fishing village of Egmond, with its pleasant beach, outdoor cafes and small shops; the ‘arty’ village of Bergen with an abundance of art and culture and the village of Schoorl is perfect for those seeking a more peaceful beach and splendid woodlands and dunes. The seaside resort of Bergen aan Zee has a very individual atmosphere, with a sea aquarium and kilometres of beach. The annual Jazz & Sail Festival is now a nationally known event.
The house,build with all natural materials, is located in a small child friendly park.Unlike other houses on the park it is not enclosed by other houses and has no passing (car)traffic.
We bought the place in 2008 to have a getaway within 60 minutes from our home in Amsterdam. We now live in Vancouver, Canada. We've always loved the Dutch coast especially in Northern Holland where the beach towns are still authentic and not so much developed as Scheveningen, Noordwijk or Zandvoort. The dunes and adjacent forest are stunning, we love to hike, run or cycle there. The villages of Bergen and Schoorl are quaint and relaxing. We drop everything when we get to our place and enjoy the pace&peace in this beautiful part of Holland. We hope you will enjoy it too.
We had a lovely week, with a very relaxed cycling, digging in the dune at Schoorl and enjoying the national park with its beautiful beaches.
A most peaceful and relaxing house which has all the amenities. Easy access and parking.
Positives - great location, well-maintained and very interesting building, everything you might ever need was provided.
Negatives - design of house meant that master bedroom downstairs was dark and unwelcoming. We slept upstairs in a beautiful room but as it was laid out for children had two single beds.
Cottage located within easy reach of many interesting places. Recommended.
PS Ignore the Sat-Nav when looking for this house!
We had not travelled to this part of the Netherlands before and we impressed with how beautiful the landscape is and how relaxing the holiday was. The holiday house is great and perfectly suited our group of 4. Although the house is fairly small and simply furnished, the layout meant that we did not feel like we were tripping over each other. The kitchen was well equipped and a store of basic ingredients like oil and herbs were provided, which was very useful. The owners had provided toys and games and they kept our children entertained every evening. The local area was full of things to see and do and great places to eat lunch and shop. We will definitely be back!
We were really impressed by the house, the location and the area - this is not a well known area of the Netherlands for British tourists (we only saw one other UK registered car!) but we loved the countryside; sitting between the natural beauty of the dunes, and the peaceful farmland of the polder, this is a great place for young families to explore.
The house itself is stylish and modern, but has all the comforts of being someone's holiday home - lots of crockery, kitchen equipment, towels etc. - we really enjoyed the outdoor space and furniture - the small development is well spaced, peaceful and very family- friendly, and both countryside and the towns of Schoorl and Bergen are nearby.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the house, as a great base to explore this area of North Holland
We totally fell in love with the house, the people and the area.
The house is so beautifully decorated and has really high quality furniture, which are very comfortable to use. We love the house, because it is beautiful and practical.
For us ( family of 5) , the house was the perfect size. The children played and slept upstairs and we had a little bit of peace downstairs.
The garden has a good size and the children spent some time playing table tennis on the playground of the holiday park.
We think of Schoorl as a perfect location for a holiday, because it has something to offer for every weather and time of the year.
The beaches are very big and beautiful, the dunes of Schoorl have fantastic cycle paths and walking paths and near by are many nice cities to have a look at, like Almaar, Hoorn, Bergen and Amsterdam.
We definitely plan to return.
This holiday home is in a park between Bergen and Schoorl, the scenery is very nice´and each house has an own garden. The house has two bedrooms, one of them upstairs with a great outlook. Inside it is very nice, new furniture, big windows so iti is very light inside. We felt very well in this house and will come back for sure.
