Light and spacious appartment in quiet green neighbourhood, Rotterdam, Netherlands

Our appartement is with 120 square meters, light, spacious and very comfortable. There is a shared garden belonging to the complex. Always enough space to park your car free from charge. Our appartment is situated in a quiet neighborhood 15 minutes by public transport from the center of Rotterdam (city). Hillegersberg is a former village now part of Rotterdam. It has good public transport possibilities (bus, tram and train). There's a animalpark and a lake just 5/10 minutes walking from our house. Rotterdam is famous for it's architecture. New are the immense Markethall and the Central Station. The old harbours are reconstructed to housing areas. We also have our own garden with a little house on it where we grow vegetables, sit in the sun and cook in the summer. Just 5/10 minutes walking from our appartment, to relax even more.
