House in De Heen, Netherlands

Hello! For 2020 we are looking for an exchange possibly in the spring from the 28 of April untill the 4th of May or in the summer for 2 weeks somewhere between 20 July and 23th of August.

We live in De Heen for almost 11 years now. It is a lovely quiet village  (500 people) wich has a cafe and a camp-site with pancake house. There is a lot of boating going on and the people are very friendly.
It is a very safe area and your children are safe to play in the garden or in the village, where there are several playgrounds.
On a distance of two kilometres there is a natural park with wild animals.
We've got lots of bicycles for you to use.

Near the village is Steenbergen where you can find everything you need.
We have got four lovely children. They are 16,14,13 and 9 next summer. The two oldest are girls and the boys are the youngest.
Our house has got 6 bedrooms on the first floor. There is bedding for 9-10 persons now, but there is more space to put in a matras. There is a playing area in the garden.
We have downstairs a great kitchen and dining area, a music room, a living room with a TV corner, an seperate office and a
room for coats & shoes. The washing unit is also downstairs.
 For us, this is the tenth time that we would like to exchange. We prefer to exchange with another family with children. We were already in Sweden, Switserland, France, Germany, Belgium, Denmark and Canada.
We are a non smoking family!

As we don't have any animals you can take your dog if needed. We do have fish nowadays, but that shouldn't be a problem.

We are also available for other exchanges, so please let us know. Especially during school holidays.
Veerle and Jochem (both 43)
Emma, Maura, Lucas and Siem (15,14,12 and 8)

About Our Family

Our family has four children of 16,14,13 and 9 years old in the summer of 2020. Jochem and Veerle are both 43 years young :)

Lifestyle

We both work full-time, Veerle in Rotterdam as a coördinator at a university of applied science for teaching in Rotterdam and Jochem is a senior advisor for safety at a company H2K.
We love playing musical instruments and enjoying nature.
As our village is so small, it is very safe for the children to play in and make themself dirty:)
