Large appartment in Amsterdam, Netherlands

The house is situated in the very center of Amsterdam. We have a beautiful view on one of the canals. It is a historical neighbourhood opposite the Rijksmuseum. There are many lovely shops and a wide variety of fine art and antiqueshops. Our house is built in 1898 and we live on the first floor in a spacious apartment (170m2). It has a modern atmosphere. There are two bedrooms with twin beds and in the studio. A small bathroom with shower and bath and a nice kitchen with all equipments.The apartment is quiet and well maintained. The public transport is very close to our house. The famous Vondelpark is just a ten minutes walk form our house. Holland is a beautiful country with flowerfields, historical villages and wonderful beaches (20 km from Amsterdam).
We live in a world heritage, very close to renovated Rijksmuseum (Nighwatch, Rembrandt) and the Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk museum. Almost every main spot of Amsterdam is within walking distance of our house. Anne Frank's house is a 10 minutes walk from our house. Or you can use our bikes or boat.We have one lovely cat, who stays often outside the house. We don't smoke and we will travel without children. We are interested in big cities and we love mountains and the rural countryside. For the summer 2016 we look for an exchange in a rural area.

About Our Family

We are two professors/artist , (66, 64) head of Academy of Fine Arts, director art Institute.
We are very happy in our house in the center of Amsterdam. But in the summer we like to be in the country. We love rural, even isolated, places. We like to sport, hike and travel during the summer. Our children (3) are adults, and will not join us on holidays. Our house is perfect to visit Amsterdam. Very close to museums and touristic area's. We also have a small boat, to experience the canals.

Nous sommes professeur/ artiste (59/62) a une Academie des Beaux Arts. Aussi: dir. et chef d'une Institut d'Arts.
Nous sommes tres content avec notre maison dans le centre d'Amsterdam. Mais en été nous préférons la campagne, très calme dans la nature.Nous aimons les sports, promener, etc. Notre maison est perfect pour visiter Amsterdam. Les musées sont a 5 minuit a pied, et Nous avons aussi une petite bateau pour visiter les canaux d'Amsterdam.

Lifestyle

Our house matches with our lifestyle, it's close to all kind of cultural events, but at the same time we like privacy and quiet nights.
In the summer we like long walks in the country, we love the seaside.
Because we live in the city, we like the country for the summer, to hear the birds, see the trees, to enjoy nature
