House in Vianen, Netherlands

 
We are Tineke and Pierre, 60 and 71 years of age.
Pierre is retired, before he retired, his work was to visit people, who were ill and therefore could not come to work. Tineke is facility manager of a company who helps people to find a new job or to develop their skills.( At 01-10-2018 retired).
Our first home exchange was in 1985. We already made more then 50 exchanges all over Europe. Sometimes even 3 times a year, always with great pleasure. We went to a lot of nice places and enjoyed the homes of all the other Intervac Families.
We hope to continue exchanging for at last the next 15 years.
Vianen is a Historic small town (20.000 inhabitants) with a lot of monumental houses and buildings and a historic city centre.
Amsterdam and Utrecht are both within a short distance and easy to reach. (half an hour)
 
Our house is built in 1887 and originally used by the lock-keeper, the lock is still in use, but the houses are renovated in 2006 and are now in use for living. It is part of a serie of 3 houses.
We have a nice garden with sauna, and from our house it is just a 3 minutes walk to the town center.There is enough space to park your car. We have 3 bedrooms, one we use as a study. We have two double beds. Our kitchen/diningroom is well equipped, with fridge, freezer, oven, washingmachine.
 In our area you can make nice walks, bike or make city trips.
Vianen is situated on the River Lek, with very nice views.
 
The bus-stop to Utrecht and other places is 50 mtr from our house.

About Our Family

We love to travel, not only with Intervac, but also other trips. In the past we went to Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesie, Suriname and Cuba for example. When exchanging houses we like to visit nice city's as well as the country. We like walking in nature but also goning out to eat in nice cosy restaurants.
We sometimes like to travel with friends.

Lifestyle

We live in a nice small town with enough shops to do the daily shopping. The people here are very friendly. It is easy to go to a bigger city like Utrecht. The busstop is only 50 mtrs from our house.
Life is very relaxed in Vianen.
We have a nice garden with several terrasses where you can sit and relax, reads a book, or drink a glass of wine in the evening.
