Hi People like us!
We live at a terrain that used to be a farm. At our terrain of 1 hectare are several buildings, and one of them is a silo that used to be a farming silo. Thinking and acting 'out of the box' we took out two big (and some smaller) junks of the concrete and projected big sliding windows. By adding luxury and comfort, we realised a project that did not yet exist in Holland.
The Silohouse, has a great kitchen and charming places inside and outside,The rural area and windmill of Werkhoven are waiting to be discovered by bike or feet. Amsterdam (40 min) and Utrecht (15 min) are nearby, all easy to access with public transport or by car.
We have a large garden and two terraces . Next to the silo is a meadow with 4 sheep (and hopefully lambs in spring), that complete the rural way of living at our place. We also have several bikes you can use.
Last 5 years we were memeber of HE and enjoyed 6 exchanges.
We are looking forward to a next exchange, please surprise us!
The Silohouse is a light and spacy building. The living room, large kitchen area with dining table, toilet and room with washing machine are downstairs, Upstairs we have two large bedrooms (25 m2 each). Both rooms have an attached bathroom with shower, double sink and toilet. The master bedrooms has a large bed (180 x 200) and accomodates 2 people. The second bedroom has a double bed (160 x 200) and two beds for one person and can accomodate up to 4 people.
For the children we have lots of space outside, a big trampoline, a big go kart and grassland to play soccer or any other games.
Ground floor and first floor
Our terrain of 1 hectare has several buildings, and we are happy to offer 2 of them for home exchange: the Silo house and the redesigned farm we live in. We also rent the silo house for some periods of the year, and we are glad to be able to use it for home exhcange, as it makes it possible to do non-simultanious exchanges.

If you like the peace and quietness of the forest, fields and also like to be close to Amsterdam (even the beach is within a one hour drive!), this is the place to be. The dutch windmill of our village is in a walking distance and can be visited every Saturday. We love to buy the flour that is grinded in the windmill and make pancakes of it!
