AMSTERDAM COUNTRY HOME

For the wedding of our son in Amsterdam he had to find a Hotel for all guests from abroad ! Not easy to find as Hotels in Amsterdam are usually very expensive.  The problem too was that there were many young children amongst the guests. He finally found an ideal place, the Amsterdam Country Home located in North Amsterdam and only 10 min far from Amsterdam city center by car.



When we arrived we were pleased to see such a beautiful place in the countryside ! The front



and the back of the main building, which I believe had been an old barn converted into a Bed & Breakfast.



There were some bungalows for families and a lot of space around.



A little everywhere you had nice spots to sit and rest




The children had enough room for playing  which would have been impossible in a hotel in Amsterdam







and while some adults were still sleeping they had fun running around and jumping on the trampoline







The main building was surrounded by 10.000 square meters (33 square feet) of farmland. Goats, sheep and geese were there much to the joy of the children and a very friendly dog.



You could climb up the stairs in the main house up to the roof, look down on the kitchen and living rooms, bikes for fitness and enough room for inside activities.



On the top of the building I had a beautiful view to Amsterdam




Our room too was quiet special all in wood.

So if you want to combine holidays with Amsterdam visits this would be the ideal place.  With all the wedding guests we had the whole place for us. It was just wonderful.

Hi Gattina

I have tucked this away in my holiday file in the hope that it may come in useful as a place to stay one day!

We used to be neighbours, as we lived down the road from you for 8 years. I have joined your blog to get my Brussels fix!

Looking forward to reconnecting with Waterloo!

I think informal places are wonderful for weddings

Here we have a place called heritage house people rent out for weddings.
Every time we go, their tables are all set up and a bride is taking pictures.

This is my kind of place. One where everyone can spread out and enjoy themselves and still have some privacy from the other guests. In this case, you had the place all to yourselves which is even better! Congratulations on your son's marriage :-)

What an incredible place; your son found a real gem .. just perfect for the big occasion. I can't imagine a better place for lodging a group like this anywhere in the world!

Hello Gattina - what a wonderful idea - so much space for everyone and what better than a family event - I love your shots - especially the ones taken at an angle of the interior of the house - very good - Jane uk
