Cosy familyhouse in the east of Holland and modern new apartment in Amsterdam
The city-center of Arnhem is 20 minutes by car or bus. The bus stops at the end of our street, (3 minutes)
It takes 7 minutes by train from the brand new train station in Westervoort to the center of Arnhem. Arnhem- Amsterdam is 1 hour by train.
Arnhem is surrounded by green parks and forests, such as the National nature reservate: De Hoge Veluwe and the Posbank. Here you might pick up one of the white "free" bicycles, and make a nice trip through the beautiful forests. In this park you will be able to visit the famous art museum: Kröller Muller Museum, and the " life-under-the-earth" museum.
In Arnhem you'll find a very famous Zoo, called Burgers Bush, with safari, tropic hall, desert hall, and sea-life hall. If you are interested in cultural activities one of the museums such as the Open Air Museum, the Africa museum and a War-museum could be interesting. You will also find a tropic swimhall with waves, slides etc. in Arnhem. Arnhem has a nice shopping centre with big centre-square full of bars, cafe's, restaurants and sunny terraces.
Arnhem has been awarded as the most pleasant and interesting shopping-centre of the Netherlands. Arnhem is also recently awarded as the greenest park-town of the Netherlands.
10 minutes (by car) from our house there is a beautiful nature lake-swimming-place, with beaches, eat and drink-terraces etc. You will be able to find the pictures under the item: "neighbourhood". Very nice for a beach day with young children!
You can reach Amsterdam by car in 1 1/4 hour drive. The most comfortable way to the center of Amsterdam is to park the car outside Amsterdam at one of the Transferia, also called:P+R-zone. For the charge of 8 euro (parking for a whole day), included 5 free go and return-tickets to the center of Amsterdam by metro, train or bus. Easy to do for a one-day-trip.
You can reach the coast of Holland within 1 1/2 hour by car.
The border of Germany is 20 minutes by car, this means a visit to several German cities is easy to do. Such as: Kleve, Düsseldorf, Oberhausen.
Our house is situated in a very child-friendly and quiet neighbourhood with mostly house-owners. Many playgrounds and parks, also a children-farm 10 minutes walk from our house.
Supermarket for your daily needs, bread, and a snackbar are located at 500 meter from our house. Our village Westervoort has a small shopping center and some nice restaurants, Chinese, Turkish, Shoarma, Pizza etc. Also the Ikea and Mac Donalds are very close if you like fast food.......
At the opposite of our house there is a big playground for the children. You will be able to watch your children from the house while they are playing, very save, without traffic.....The playground belongs to a primary school, that obviously is closed during the summer-holidays.
Westervoort is a nice region for a bicycle-ride.....along the riverside, and through the country-villages.
We have one electric bicycle that can be used.
Apartment in Amsterdam:
It is also possible to exchange with the new modern apartment of our doughter in Amsterdam.
Close to the World Fashion Center in Amsterdam West, 10 minutes to the center of Amsterdam with good transport.
It is situated on the first floor with an elevator.
This apartment has one bedroom and is very comfortable for 2 persons.
It includes a private parking under the building.( see photo’s)
Car-exchange is possible in case you would like to travel by airplane and arrive at an airport in Amsterdam, Eindhoven or Dusseldorf Wheeze.
Our car is a new electric Dacia Spring, january 2022.
The car can be loaded for max 200 kilometers, we realize this is not a big distance but there are plenty of fast charging stations where you can charge the car along the highways in Holland.
In our garden in the front of our house we have a private charging station.
