We are looking for an exchange for 3 to 4 weeks.

Looking for summer 2020

Welcome to our home! We are a family of five people and two cats (Snoes and Siep). Frans-Jozef (42), Heleen (40) Fiene (12), Rijk (10) and Marie (5). We live in a historical suburb of Amsterdam, 5 minutes by car (20 minutes by public transport)!
Our house has three stories. We have four bedrooms.
In front of our house is a playgarden. Just around the corner there is a small shoppingcentre with a supermarket, flowershop, Chinese restaurant, snackbar and shoemaker.
We have a car you can use (+ 2 carseats, 1 babyseat) and  4 bikes, and four seats for children. It's a ten minute bikeride to the childrens farm. It takes 15 minutes to bike to the city of Amstelveen, which has a large shoppingcentre (5 minutes by bus or car). 
The village we live in lies at the riverbank of the river Amstel, which also flows through Amsterdam (the canals) and is famous for it's restaurants. There are lots of possibilties for recreation alongside the river. Visit one of the excellent restaurants or take a picture in front of the windmills. 
Only 2 kilometers from house there is a small lake. You can cycle, walk or windsurf there. Next to the lake there are also stables and a riding school. Only two minutes by bike there's a large open air swimmingpool.
