Monumental, yet friendly house in Haarlem, Netherlands

Our big, monumental house (1865) in Haarlem, with child friendly garden is very convenient for people that are interested in either historic Haarlem (www.haarlem.nl) or cosmopolitic Amsterdam, and ideal for people that want to combine citylife with dunes and sea. It's situated in an 19th century park, and opposite the railway station. Wandering around or shopping in the historical centre of Haarlem (the nr. 1 shopping city in the Netherlands) is great. Rich of museums, including Teylers museum, which is the oldest museum in Haarlem, Frans Hals museum etc. and full of restaurants and cafes.
 
We're a family with three teenaged daughters, but the house is also equipped for younger children. The big garden in the park contains a trampoline and swing. Our cats are very easy with adults as well as children. We could ask a friend to take of them if that's a problem.

We are open for exchanges during our holidays from April 27th - May 10th and summer 2018, July 25th - August 15th.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Amsterdam Schiphol - 20 km

We live in a funny neighbourhood, with the front of our house right in the centre of the old city of Haarlem, and the back in a 19th century park, the former bolwerks. Haarlem is rewarded shopping city of the Netherlands several times, because of the wide diversity of shops. You can also find the Dutch eldest museum Teylers and the famous old Dutch masters Frans Halsmuseum in Haarlem. Go out for dinner or lunch in one of the many restaurants, visit a concert or film in Haarlem, or a concert in the open air theatre in nearby Bloemendaal: spectacular. It's easy to cycle to the beach or stroll in the nearby national dunepark.
