We live in the north-western part of the village of Bergen, but we are still close enough to walk to the center, and right on the edge of the dunes. Within minutes, you 'll find yourself surrounded by beautiful forest and a lovely dune-landscape. Even the beach is fairly close by; you can get there by bicycle within 20 minutes.

Getting around

Our house is situated in a quiet dead-end street of the village of Bergen on walking distance of the center, 5mn on foot to the dunes and woods. Less than 20mn on bike to the sea (6km of beautiful dune landscape to cross). Even though Bergen is a village it has numerous quality shops, cozy cafes and restaurants. Since around 1900 it has been an artistic village were famous artists (painters, poets, musicians) lived and still live. It gives Bergen that very special atmosphere. We have lots of art galleries and the wonderful Museum Kranenburgh with its sculpture garden. Amsterdam is at 45km. Since we just moved from Amsterdam we have lots of info for you if you plan a visit to that city. Also the close by cities of Haarlem, Alkmaar and Hoorn are worth a visit.

Member description
We are Marlijn and Reinier, an energetic couple in our sixties, positive thinkers. Reinier is retired (financial manager in cultural institutions like theaters), Marlijn is a visual artist / filmmaker. We have 2 adult sons living elsewhere, and our lovely cat Zazi who lives in the house and garden (catflap). February 2015 we started exchanging on another platform and since we swapt and swapt... a live changing experience. Best way to see another country is to live there some time in 'a real house' in stead of a holiday resort, meeting interesting people, making new friends. Always curious to broaden our horizon! We are interested in art, fashion design, history, music, literature, cooking and nature. On these subjects you will find books, cd's and dvd's in Dutch, English and French in our house. We are open to exchange propositions, mainly in Europe because of Reinier's health; no stairs if possible. In PLU we hope to find what we lost in our former platform; sharing, trust, generosity, respect, communication, equality, cooperation, honesty, hospitality, friendship and flexibility. As we no longer have children at home our house is not equipped for their needs and we prefer to exchange with adult couples only. We speak English, French and Dutch
