spacious and very colourful house in Tubbergen, Netherlands

NOTE: for the summer of 2020, we have found an exchange end of August, beginning of September. For the rest of the year, we are interested in shorter exchanges, from an (extended) weekend up to one week.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Are you looking for the excitement and the hustle and bustle of city life? Sorry, then this offer is not for you. On the other hand, if you are interested in staying in a (generally) quiet and peaceful provincial town in the Eastern part of the Netherlands, very close to the German border, surrounded by nature, suitable for hiking and making bike tours, keep on reading!

We live in a spacious and very colourful house. Our house is non-smoking and we intend to keep it like that. Downstairs we have a living room, a practical kitchen, a gallery / guest room with a sofa bed (double), a bathroom with jacuzzi, a terrace with parasol. Upstairs we have a master bedroom, a second bedroom with double bed, a guest room with single bed + a child's bed, a bathroom with shower.

We have a child-friendly home, taking into account that we have 9 grandchildren, varying in age between 0 and 13 years. Apart from toys, we also have children's plates, children's cutlery. Playpen available.

For 2020, we are looking for an exchange with Ireland or Scandinavia, preferably in an area where we can find peace and quiet, close to nature with opportunities to hike, ride a bike, observe plants, animals, …

Besides, we would very much like to exchange for the following shorter vacation periods or any weekend (date to be discussed) with someone in the Netherlands, Germany or Belgium.

Voor kortere vakantieperiodes of tijdens weekends (data in nader overleg) zouden wij graag willen ruilen met iemand in Nederland, Duitsland of België.

Übrigens würden wir uns freuen über einen Tausch mit jemandem in den Niederlanden, Deutschland oder Belgien während der kürzeren Ferienperioden oder an noch näher zu erörternden Wochenenden.
