  • Description

    Description

    We are a dynamic international family. Mum runs a social enterprise and kids (15 - 23) all study abroad. We spend our summer here. Now in times of CORONA we focus on our own little calm place and create a safe haven in the country side near Amsterdam where we restore our lovely 19 Th Century mansion directly on the VECHT river (connecting to Amsterdam).

    We live close to Amsterdam (20 KM) in a lovely village on the river. We are a family of global citizens - we all work and study around the globe (Asia, North America, Canada) and spend our summers here in the country side close to the city. We will share our lives and facilities with you. You can swim, sup, bike and hike here and make fires in the garden. We love to live a simple lifestyle, prepare food together, sail, and build a vegetable garden.
