Cosy, quiet apartment in the historic heart of Amsterdam

Our 65 m2 apartment is located in the heart of Amsterdam, at a 2 minutes walking distance from the historic canal ring, recently denominated Unesco World Heritage. This part of town, the 'Jordaan' is both bustling and quiet, since the old streets are too narrow to allow much traffic. Lots of small shops, cafés and restaurants. If you like, you may also enjoy our garden house, a dacha in 200 m2 of flower and vegetable garden (15 minutes cycling through a park).
You can:
- take a boat trip around the 17-th century canals (2 minutes on foot)
- visit the Anne Frank House (10 minutes on foot)
- have a look at the Van Goghs and Rembrandts in our major museums (20 minutes by cycle or tram)
- look at cows and windmills in the surrounding countryside, (45 minutes by cycle or train)
- shop till you drop, for instance at our weekly antiques or organic food market (3 minutes on foot)
- go lie on the beach (30 minutes by train)
- read one of our 3.000 books or listen to our 300 CD's
