Comfortable house close to Amsterdam, Haarlem, National Park and Seaside

The house, built in 1930, is located in a quiet area of ​​Overveen, next to Haarlem. It has a frontyard, a backyard and a balcony on the south. The house has three floors, three bedrooms with double beds, two bathrooms and a toilet on each floor, as well as two studies.

The location is perfect for both lovers of nature and city. One can get around easily without the use of a car: we usually get around by bike and by train. From Haarlem station there are frequent trains that bring you anywhere you want to go to in the Netherlands. In our small country everything is nearby.

It is only 1,5 km to the center of Haarlem, a beautiful old city with lots of bars, restaurants, shops and famous museums, such as the Frans Hals Museum and the Teylers Museum. The nearest trainstation of Haarlem is 1,5 km (ten minutes by bike), from there it's 17 minutes by train to Amsterdam (19 km).
There are also direct train connections to other cities you might want to visit, such as The Hague (40 km, 30 minutes by train) or Rotterdam (53 km, 1 hour by train).

The nearest airport is Schiphol (13 km).

For those who love cycling, walking, swimming and sunbathing, Bloemendaal beach is 5,9 km from our house, and the dunes and lakes in National Park Kennemerduinen at only 2,3 km. There are some beautiful parks to stroll in, such as Elswoud, Middenduin and Koningshof, all within 2 -3 km distance, easily reached by foot or by bike.

About Our Family

We are Frank and Judith.
We live close to the city as well as close to the beach, forest, park and lakes. We like to walk, cycle and swim.
Frank is a journalist and Judith is a publisher. We have two daughters who are now adults and who are now living and studying in Amsterdam, but who like to accompany us part of the time on holiday.
We have a lovely large house with a garden, suitable for 4-6 people. We are looking for something similar as an exchange object. The location - preferably in nature, but not far from a city - is most important to us. We are interested in southern countries where we can go to by car or train and which our daughters can reach by plane. Preferably (northern) Spain: near Barcelona, ​​Gerona, San Sebastian, Santander or Bilbao.
