Farm House in Dutch countryside in the centre of the Netherlands - looking for exchange summer 2020!

Family farm house in quiet environment, in the centre of Holland, one hour drive from Amsterdam

Our house is spacious and renovated in 2012. It has a spacious kitchen with large windows overlooking the garden, and meadow. The kitchen is equipped with many conveniences to prepare delicious food. The large living room has a sitting area, TV corner. Outside there is a lot of space (total 15.000m2) consisting of an orchard, vegetable garden, forest and a large meadow; all this is surrounded by trees. We live a lot outside in the summer. We have sheep, a dog, chickens and we keep bees. The dog will not be at home when you stay at our place. The animals don't need a lot of care. We can ask somebody to look after them if you don't want to. We eat many things that we grow ourselves, such as vegetables, fruit, eggs and honey. You are welcome to it too! Upstairs there are 5 bedrooms and a bathroom with bath and separate shower. Upstairs there is a large play area for the kids as well. With a biljart, football table and X-box.
We have a Bed and Breakfast (De Oogapppel), which is connected to the house. It has a double bedroom, private bathroom and living room and small kitchen. The Bed & Breakfast can also be used (for more information: www.bbdeoogappel.nl).
The rear part of the farm we use as a conference room. It has a large meeting area, kitchen, toilet and a entrance. This area open for you as well. See pictures at www.aangenaamvergaderen.nl

About Our Family

We are Joàn (43) and Caroline (42) Teerling, with our children David (15), Lois (13) and Noah (9). We have lived here since 2004. Before that we lived in Portugal and England. Joàn works at an Research & Development department for boilers and Caroline is a biologist, designs gardens and runs a B & B and a conference centre from home.

Because we often keep our holidays in the less touristy areas, this seems like a great way to meet people and get to know the world better. We will treat your house with respect as if it were our own home.

In 2014 we made our first exchange and we really liked it! Since then, we have exchagned every year in the summer. Five times to France and once to Ireland. This is our first year on this web-site.
We like to meet the people we do the exchange with,

Lifestyle

We love the country life. Joàn loves to cook and Caroline loves to grow the food. We like to meet friends and eat with friends and family.
We have done home exchanges 6 exchanges since 2014 through an other online platform
