Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Schiphol Amsterdam Airport - 17 kms, and 30 - 45 minutes by public transport

The Pijp is a lively and nice neighbourhood that is very popular and has great old school architecture. It has lots of cafes, restaurants, shops pretty much around the corner.

From our house you can walk easily to where the historical center begins. It takes around 10 minutes walking to be on one of Amsterdams famous canals. Also you can take the tram. From here to the museum district is also only 10 tram-minutes away. But Amsterdam is a compact city, walking distances are not so long.

There is a nice park very nearby, the Sarphatipark, were you can sit down on the grass, and have a picnic, like many people do.

There are many fresh food stores, groceries, bakeries, and there is a large bio-supermarket very nearby.

About Our Family

We are Esther, Wiek and Jonathan, our nearly 18 year old son. We are proper, quit, easygoing and considerate people. Jonathan is in his last years of highschool, esther works in healthcare as a policymaker and as a visual designer, Wiek is a teacher and a visual designer too.

We love cooking, reading, discovering new (and old) places, culture, design and art. Traveling too, of course. For sports we like walking and swimming and snorkling.

We like cities, but last year we were in Corsica and discovered how nice it is to hike along and in small rivers in the mountains. Great experience that was.

Outside school holiday periods we usually exchange just the two of us, during school holidays sometimes Jonathan comes along.

Lifestyle

Our lifestyle is quite modest, as we ourselves are. For example we like walking, and hiking. Here in Amsterdam it is always very lively. But one of the nice times to walk is at six in the morning, when the city is still asleep. It is special to walk the empty city in the morning coolness and smell the fresh scent of the Amstel river
