As our daughter will be studying in Sweden, Malmö, we would like an exchange with Sweden of Denmark. We are already exchanging for 1 week now untill the 31th of July, but we would like to stay a week longer! So... please check out our house and surroundings!

House in De Heen, Netherlands

Hello there!

For the summer of 2022 we are looking for an exchange in Sweden/Denmark. Our daughter wil start her education there after the summer and we want to explore the surroundings of Malmö. For now we are looking for an exchange from the 31th of July until the weekend of the 6th of August.

We live in De Heen for almost 14 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 18,16,15 an 11 next summer. The two oldest are girls and the boys are the youngest. We do not know yet if we are travelling with 5 or 6 next summer.
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 or a tent in the garden. There is a playing area in the garden. The bathroom is completely new, I will make some pictures soon.
Downstairs, we have a great kitchen and dining area, a music room, a living room with a TV corner, a seperate office and a
room for coats & shoes. The washing unit is also downstairs.
 For us, this is the twelfth 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 some chickens in the garden.

We are also available for other exchanges, so please let us know. Especially during school holidays.

About Our Family

Our family has four children of 18, 16, 15 and 11 years old in the summer of 2022. Jochem and Veerle are both 45 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:)
