We love the small and quiet neighbourhood we live in. From our house itâ€™s a 10 minute walk to the lively centre. Leiden is a university city and has a lot of musea, restaurants, take-aways, shops, cinemas and a market place twice a week. From our house itâ€™s a 5 minute walk to the train and busstation. There is a supermarket nearby.
Leiden is located between Amsterdam and The Hague. It is also not far to Rotterdam, Delft and Utrecht (all max 1 hour driving). Itâ€™s only 10 kilometers to the sea. You can choose from different beaches like Noordwijk, Katwijk, Wassenaarseslag and Scheveningen.
On the first floor we have a large and sunny livingroom (tv, dvd player and stereo), an open kitchen (dish washer, oven-microwave and fridge), a master bedroom (with balcony) with a double bed, five childrens bedrooms, a toilet and a bathroom (bath and shower).
On the groundfloor we have another livingroom with double doors to the garden. There is also an extra kitchen you can use when you want to eat outside. Beside the kitchen you will find the washing machine and the tumbler. There is also a piano room and an extra toilet on the ground floor.
Our garden has a lot of shade. It's a nice place for a barbeque sitting at the large table.
We take advantage of the sunny public playground behind our house, which also has a swimming pool for younger children.
We have several bikes available for adults and children. If you have younger children we can make special arrangements for you. And if you like inline skating: we have several pairs available in several sizes.
Within one hour drive you can also visit cities like Amsterdam (Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum, etc.), Rotterdam (several boat trips possible in the very large harbours) and The Hague (city of the government). There is a straight train connection to all of these cities if you wish to travel bij train.
We have two public swimmingpools in the neighbourhood, but you can also go to the Northsea or the Kager Plassen (lake district with lots of boats).
Within one hour drive you can also visit the best attractions of Holland, like:
- http://www.madurodam.nl (miniature park, very Dutch)
- http://www.efteling.com/ (fun park and fairy tail theme park)
- http://archeon.nl/nederlands/home.html (open air museum
- http://avifauna.nl/ (bird park and boat trips)
- http://www.kinderdijk.nl/ (famous windmills, Unesco)

We would like to exchange houses for three weeks in the period July 20 till August 31.
We have some ideas but are open to other destinations.
We have three children of our own: Philip (15), Daphne (18) and Matthias (20, lives elsewhere). We also take care of three foster children (on a permanent basis): Manuela (9), Lorenzo (10) and Shena (12).
We have no pets and are non-smokers.
