House in Gouda, Netherlands

We live near the city-centre of Gouda, in a quiet neighbourhood. Walking to the city-centre one usually do in about 10 minutes or less.
Gouda is a friendly city, not too big. It has every facility you might like and it is situated in the Green Heart of the region. There is enough water in the neighbourhood to enjoy. Tourist information from Gouda: http://www.welkomingouda.nl/en or http://www.groenehart.nl/the-green-heart-of-holland and http://www.holland.com/global/tourism.htm.
The intercity-trainstation is within 1 km. From there it takes 20 minutes to reach the inner city of Rotterdam, The Hague or Utrecht and less then 1 hour for Amsterdam.
In the Netherlands distances are usually not too far and in the environment we have no mountains, not even hills...we just have 'dikes'. So, it's easy to go your way bicycling, you can use our bicycles. If you like you can also use our carrier cycle for sight seeing and shopping.
We live in a nice city house with a lot of space and a green garden. Our house is rather 'basic'. We dry our laundry on lines, we do our dishwashing in a tub... our kitchen and bathroom are functional, not luxury.
We enjoyed seven exchanges now and each time it was beautiful in different ways. We are open for proposals from all over Europe. The most important condition for exchange for our children is: a place to swim in the neighborhood....

Lifestyle

We live in Gouda for almost 22 years now. Since then we didn't need a car anymore, so we don't possess one. If necessary, in the city a car can be hired for days or parts of a day.
