Hello my name is Truus and I provide you a shelter in Driemond, a rural area of AMSTERDAM.
10 miles from the center of Amsterdam and 2 miles from Weesp.
Close at my place is one nice bar you can visit only 4 minutes walk.
PARKING FREE: Parking your car here is still old-fashioned free.
THE ROOM: The room is small but cosy and has a small size 2 persons bed.
BATHROOM: The bathroom has been renovated and we share this.
BIKES: I have one lady bike, you can use for € 5,00 a day.
BREAKFAST: I do not serve, you have coffee and tea at your room, and some small bites.
Driemond is a small village and very quiet there is no restaurant, but plenty of walking and cycling possibilities. There is one supermarket where you can also withdraw cash, as well as tasty sandwiches for the road on the counter. There is also a snack bar.
TO DO: In the immediate vicinity of Driemond:
AMSTERDAM: Amsterdam is easy accessible by train/tram or metro.
If you like a bike ride to the tram this is about 5 miles and it is a nice road.
You can also bike to the metro that will bring you in 25 minutes to the center of Amsterdam.
If you go by car you can also park the car at the Arena where parking is about € 8.00 for 24 hours and you get a free ticket to the center for (max) 5 passengers.
Sorry to let you know the bus is not running in the weekend.
More to see and do:
WEESP: Weesp is nearby and here are several restaurants, shops and a beautiful old church.
Do a walk through Weesp with a guide, or on your own, do not forget the "stumbling stone pathway" or relax on a terrace and look at all the boats that sail, is no punishment.
Weesp also has a very nice small museum.
MUIDEN: Muiden and Muiderberg are beautiful old towns; full of Dutch history and the Zuiderzee (now called IJsselmeer).
MUIDERSLOT: THE CASTLE OF AMSTERDAM called by the Dutch: Muiderslot. It is famous since the Golden Age after the escape of Hugo de Groot; (you can visit it) and it is also possible to visit it by boat it is located on the island Pampus.
Not to forget ABCOUDE where some very good restaurants are and easy to visit on the bike (10 miles) or car along the water, one of the most beautiful (bike) tours in the area.
Near to my house is the Diemerbos, where you can enjoy nature and peace.
And a visit to Naarden, Bussum (’t Gooi) a medieval small town where the center still shows the old fortification.
My place is very central for those who like to bike in Holland. For some days, or you want "peace" and explore the area.
Close by there is a golf course if you want to hit a ball and for those who love the sauna there is a very nice sauna and next to the sauna is a separate pool. This all 5 minutes away by car and 10 minutes by bike.
I have two very affectionate cats, who just like me, hope to welcome you!
I speak English and German
