Holiday cottage in Edam
In the historical city of Edam, only 20 minutes away from Amsterdam, lies this idyllic detached holiday cottage on the waterside. Â 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,Â only 3 minutes walking from the bus station and the city centre. The lovely private garden 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. From the open kitchen you walk into the garden. Â Because of the moving water there are no mosquitos!
The holiday cottage in Edam is fully equiped with a dishwasher, refrigerator, oven, microwave, washer, dryer, radio/tv/dvd and wifi. On the first floor Â you find a small bathroom with toilet, sink and shower and 1 large bedroom with a double and single bed.
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. 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 IJssellake eather by coach or by a Dutch barge. Visit Volendam or the island of Marken where it seems Â time stood still. In July and August there are cheese markets every Wednesday in Edam. Different golf links are only 15-minutes by car.
Donâ€™t forget to rent an electric boat or canoe to discover the rural surroundings of the small towns of Zuiderwoude, Broek in Waterland and Monnickendam or rent a boat to explore the small canals of Edam.
Too much to mention , so come and see for yourself!
I hope to welcome you soon!
