Paterswolde, best of two worlds : the vibrant city of Groningen and the nature of Drenthe

We live in Paterswolde, 10 km. south of the vibrant city of Groningen.
We just moved here from Groningen in January 2024.
We live in a nice bungalow with a big garden. Close to public transport, shops and restaurants, the Paterswoldse Meer (lake) for swimming and sailing. Perfect cycling opportunities.
Paterswolde is well known for its woods and estates. Just 2 min. from our house you can start walking!

About Our Family

We retired from a lifelong career in teaching (Wiepke 70 and Kor 66). Our two daughters live in Driebergen (NL) and London.
We like to travel and have seen a lot of the world, but there are always nice countries and more cities to visit.
We are since long Intervac-members and we were never disappointed.
One of our daughters lives/works in London.
We like to visit her on a regular basis, so an exchange with London (or surroundings) would be welcome any time of the year.

Voor korte schoolvakanties, lange weekeinden staan we open voor alle voorstellen, ook binnen Nederland.

We are also interested in (short) exchanges with European cities (Hamburg, Berlin, Wien, Paris etc.),
long weekends or schoolholidays.

Lifestyle

We are real travellers. When we were younger we loved to cycle (longer trips from six weeks to yes, up to 1 year : Holland - Egypt - Holland).
With our two daughters we backpacked a lot in Asia and Australia.
Now we travel together and since we are retired we are quite flexible in our plans.
We don't drive a car and use public transport everywhere. Most of the times we'll manage quite well, some times we book a short organized tour to get to the touristic highlights.
