Idyllic holiday cottage at the waterside of Edam
In the historical city of Edam, only 20 minutes away from Amsterdam, lies this idyllic detached holiday home on the waterside. According to the Lonely Planet Guide, Edam is the second most beautiful city of the Netherlands and I totally agree.
The house is located on a quiet spot, only 3 minutes walking from the bus station and the city centre. The lovely private terras lies on the South and borders on the river with a view overlooking the water and the meadows making it a serene place to relax.
The house is brand new and has hand made Portuguese tiles in the kitchen and a colorful bathroom. It is equipped with a kitchen, small stove, refrigerator, radio/tv and wifi. On the first floor you find a small bedroom with a double bed. On the ground floor the living room with sofa bed, dining table, wardrobe, kitchen and bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. Towels and bed linen are included in the price and also some tea, coffee and herbs.
Edam is situated on the IJsselmeer. The city has a rich history of shipyards, timber trade and cheese. It has beautiful buildings from the Golden Age, canals, museums, a good selection of restaurants and nice (antique)shops. It is also called little Amsterdam. Set in a open natural landscape and yet very close to Amsterdam. The bus runs day and night and brings you in 25 minutes to Amsterdam.
There are many cycling and walking tours, a choice in daytrips to places around the IJsselmeer either by coach or by a Dutch barge. Visit Volendam or the island of Marken where it seems time stood still. The Zaanse Schans is beautiful with 4 big windmills, some of them still working and set around an small old village. In July and August there are cheese markets every Wednesday in Edam. Different golf links are only 15-minutes by car
You can rent our boat to discover the rural surroundings of the small towns of Zuiderwoude, Broek in Waterland and Monnickendam.
Too much to mention , so come and see for yourself! Parking is free!
Your dog is welcome but cannot be left alone in the house. Extra costs for the dog is € 15,00 per booking. When you want to book please inform me about the dog.
I hope to welcome you soon!!
