My apartment is in a quiet place called De Bilt and has everything u need.
On the one hand u have Utrecht, the city, on the other hand u have u forest called Panbos, wich leads to De Utrechtse Heuvelrug, wich is one of the biggest green landscapes of the Netherlands.
De Bilt offers u everything u need. From restaurants to Supermarkets and everything in between. The forest is like a 10 minute walk from the apertment.
