Comfortable house in an historical town in Leiden, Netherlands

This autumn we should like to go to Germany, by preference an old town like MUNICH, but also other towns and countries are possible!

My husband and I live in a cosy family-house, situated at 20 minutes from the centre of the historical town. of Leiden.
Our house has two storeys, the top floor is the attic (with washing machine and extra room for a sleeping place).
On the ground floor a living-room, dining-room and an equipped kitchen: from here you have a a view on the garden. Digital television/radio and dvd are available On the second floor: 2 bedrooms, one with balcony, 1 bathroom and 1 study. with computer. We have also wifi. A spare baby-bed is on hand.

In our nice little garden you can enjoy the sun and use the barbecue! The neighbourhood is quiet ,green and attractive for children; you can make some nice walks or bike-tours to the lake along the river.
The shopping centre is at 10 minutes walk, 3 minutes with the car

.Leiden is a beautiful old town, we think its the most beautiful of Holland! There are lots of museums churches, theatres restaurants and shops, and you can make a boat tour through the canals. Other towns, worth visiting are Amsterdam, The Hague, Delft etc.and the coast of Northern Holland is also beautiful.

The public transport is excellent, Going by bike is attractive, to the centre as to the beach.
Going to the centre takes 15 minutes by bus and about the same with the bike.
Actually and if you wish, you don't need a car !   .
