Apartment citycentre Haarlem, Netherlands

Our apartment has two floors with a large living room, study, kitchen and a sunny terrace on the first floor and three bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor.
The house is built in 1917 in a beautiful style with coloured glass windows and high ceilings. It has a warm atmosphere in which our guests feel very welcome and at home. The view from our apartment on the canal is beautiful. Lots of boats are passing by. The house is situated in the historical city centre with lots of restaurants, shops, cafes, museums and markets within walking distance. In the other direction is 'De Hout' a beautiful city park.
From our home you can go to the dunes and the beach, easily by car but especially by bicycle. National Parc Kennemer Duinen is beautiful. Amsterdam with all its attractions and other historical Dutch cities like Volendam, Marken, Alkmaar, Delft are easy to reach by car or train within half an hour.
