We also have 3 bicycles you may use).
What you will love in the neighborhood
We live at a quiet place in a small city, but near larger cities (most are reachable within a 1 hour drive). Amsterdam is a 50 min drive.
Several beaches closeby, like the one in Lemmer, which is a beautiful and more turistic village closeby (10 min by car). There are also some excellent restaurants in Emmeloord and Lemmer.
Kampen is a lovely medieval city, famous for its harbour and only 20 min from here by car or bus. Schokland (UNESCO Heritage) is also very closeby (10 min by car). You will also want to see Urk, which is a historic fishermen's village (and some of them still wear traditional clothing) and Giethoorn, which is also called the Florence of Holland.
We live in a nice apartment on the 3rd floor. The apartment is very luminous and the view is wonderful (we live near the water). It is a small city, but everything is at hand. Several large supermarkets and the city centre are closeby (a 5 min walk). There are parcs, we have a public swimming pool and the beach is a 10 min drive by car. If you wish to visit some larger cities, you can best go by car. It's recommendable to rent a car if you want to travel around a lot, although the city also has public transportation by bus. Amsterdam is a 50 min drive, Zwolle is reachable within 35 min, while you can reach most other cities within 1 hour (Groningen, Utrecht). We feel this appartment is a nice and luminous place, with all facilities you need for a nice holiday. We have 3 bedrooms, 2 of them have beds and the third bedroom we transformed into a study with a pc. We have WIFI in the house too. There is enough space to spend time here with a company of 4 people. It is a place to relax but you are near the bigger cities, making it an ideal place for 1 or 2 couples, friends or a couple with 1 (older) child.
