House in Nijmegen, Netherlands

** WE HAVE ALREADY MADE ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE SUMMER OF 2020 **

Since February 2016, we are living in our new home in Nijmegen Lent. Lent is the northern-most suburb of Nijmegen, located on the north border of the river Waal.

We live in a new area of Lent, a very child-friendly neighbourhood. There is a playground right in front of our house and reduced traffic, which makes it an excellent place for families with young children (ours are 7 (girl) and 10 (boy). Nijmegen city centre is easy to reach by car (10 minutes), bike (15 minutes), bus (10 minutes) or even by train (Lent has its own train station, easy connections to Arnhem, Nijmegen and Den Bosch and to other major Dutch cities: travel to Amsterdam will only take one and a half hour). Nijmegen has a direct train connection with Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The German Airport Weeze and Eindhoven airport are also nearby.

Our house has a garden with lots of sun during the day (and a sun screen ;), two bedrooms and one playroom (can be used as an extra bedroom as well) at the first floor + a bath room with separate shower, and a master bedroom at the second floor.

Nijmegen is the oldest city of the Netherlands: http://en.vvvarnhemnijmegen.nl and http://english.nijmegen.nl Nijmegen is located near the German border and has excellent connections by train and car with National Park De Hoge Veluwe (30m) http://www.hogeveluwe.nl/en/14 , Utrecht (1h), Amsterdam (1h20m), and Cologne (1h40m).

The surroundings have much to offer: hiking and cycling in the meadows of the river Waal (5m by bike from our home), relaxing at the nearby pond, shopping in the city center of Nijmegen (10m by car). Nijmegen is a former Roman village; the Valkhof Museum exhibits this Ancient heritage: http://www.museumhetvalkhof.nl/english.html
Nijmegen is located in the southeast of the province of Gelderland, famous for its national parks and its many castles: http://www.mooigelderland.nl/index.php?pageID=3283

We are experienced ‘Intervac-ers’: over the past years we have exchanged homes with families in Germany, Switzerland, Sweden and Austria. Moreover, before we had a family of our own, we have spent several holidays with our parents/in-laws – who have over 30 years of Intervac-experience – exchanging homes with people from all across Europe.

We would prefer to exchange homes with people from Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Denmark and United Kingdom.

Presentatie tekst voor het gezin

We, Martine (41), Harm (42), Simon (12) and Hannah (9), live in Lent, Nijmegen. Martine teaches (ancient) Greek and Latin languages at a high school in Arnhem, Harm is a history professor at Radboud University in Nijmegen. We live in a very child-friendly neighbourhood with lots of families with young children.

We are looking forward to spending our holiday abroad, mixing relaxing and visiting the swimming pool with making trips to nearby cities, museums, interesting sites etc.
