Where you’ll be

Leiden, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands

We live in the Merenwijk, a lovely green and quiet suburb of Leiden. In the middle is a park and wood and next to that (5 minutes walk from us) is a small shopping centre with 3 supermarkets, bakery, drug stores, etc.

2 minutes walk away is a beautiful green area for a stroll with a lake and river. The Merenwijk is a great place to relax in nature.

There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance, otherwise in the city centre there are hundreds of eateries and bars.

We are a British family of four who fell in love with the Netherlands many years ago and moved here in 2007. Living in another country helps us appreciate what it is like to be far from home and we hope to provide a warm and cosy place away from your home. We love offering hospitality to others and learning about other cultures and lives. Our aim is for you to go away feeling refreshed and relaxed, as well as having enjoyed your time visiting this beautiful country that is our adopted home.
