Welcome to the "Green Heart"
Between Amsterdam and Utrecht in the so called “Green Heart” of the Netherlands and the Vecht-area, and that is where our characteristic 150 year old farm is. Here you can find rest and space while enjoying the lovely open landscape, beautiful scenery, and recreation possibilities.
We created three apartments where in the earlier days there used to be a pig barn. This apartment can accommodate 2 people. We have installed all the modern features to ensure you have a pleasant stay. There is nice furniture, big windows, a TV and bathroom.
The village of Breukelen is situated on the river de Vecht with a beautiful backdrop of what life was like many years ago. The village became a part of the new municipality, Stichtse Vecht, on January 1st, 2011, including Maarssen and Loenen aan de Vecht. The village contains 3 castles, including Nijenrode, and is well-known for its university. Stichtse Vecht offers the most historic outdoor places of the entire Netherlands. Most of them can only be viewed from outside. However, in the Vechtstreekmuseum and Slot Zuylen, you can learn everything about living near de Vecht during the Dutch Golden Age.
De Vecht sets the atmosphere in Breukelen and its surroundings. Loenen aan de Vecht has a protected town centre and is definitely worth a visit. Take a walk through de Dorpsstraat, with its old, majestic houses and unique ‘overtuinen’ (gardens that are separated from the houses), and their graceful tearooms.
Stichtse vecht is also a part of the ‘Nationaal Landschap Het Groene Hart’ and is an area full of water, so enthusiasts of aquatic sports can also enjoy themselves. De Maarsseveense, Loosdrechtse and Vinkeveense plassen are all close by.
Within Breukelen, but also outside the town, you can find several reasonably priced restaurants. On Fridays, there is a market on de Kerkbrink in the town centre, surrounded by various pleasant outdoor cafes. The vibrant cities of Amsterdam and Utrecht are both just 20 minutes away by car. The public transportation options are also worth considering. A train and bus station is located within walking distance.
