House in Amsterdam, Netherlands

The house (about 120 m2) is a typical Amsterdam house from about 1900, consisting of two flats, the one below is mine with two floors, the flat above belongs to my very friendly and helpful neighbours; their flat has three floors.
 
The garden is quite spacious for an Amsterdam house, about 10 by 6 meters, and it has sun in the summer from about 12 o'clock onwards until about 7 at night.
 
The street is very quiet in a residential area very close to the town centre (about 10 minutes on a bike) and 50 meters from the nearest  underground station, which takes you to Amsterdam Central station in 5 minutes.
The street is a side street on the river Amstel, along which one has a very pleasant walk, with lots of cafe's and little restaurants. Shops of all kinds are close by.

The family: I work at the university of Amsterdam. I have three children (Daan, Joost and Tessel); they are all adults and don't live with me anymore but one or two of them sometimes like to join in on an exchange when the time suits them.

I have done many house exchanges with our previous house in Amsterdam (about 9 times in France, Germany, Austria, Italy, the US), in the summer and around Christmas time and always enjoyed it! We are open to any offer but possibilities depend on whether I have to teach or not
