Want to be close to Amsterdam & Utrecht, but not in the busyness of the city, but at the water and nature? Then this is the place for you! Only 10 car minutes away to Amsterdam and Utrecht.

Vacation in The Netherlands! The Netherlands has many beautiful places. This also applies to "The Amsterdam Chalet" at the beautiful Vinkeveense Plassen. Only accessible by car. You can park directly at the chalet.

The space
The chalet with 2 bedrooms is private and fully equipped. In the summer of 2020 we placed an air conditioning system that can also be used to heat the chalet. There is also a gas heater for the cold evenings. The luxurious bathroom has a lovely spacious shower, sink with storage space and toilet. Here you will also find towels and toilet paper. There are two bedrooms for a total of 4 persons. One room with a spacious double bed and a room with a bunk bed. Beds will be made upon arrival. Both rooms have plenty of closet space. A baby bed and high chair can be provided on request. The kitchen is fully equiped with a dishwasher, combi microwave, large fridge-freezer, Nespresso coffee machine, kettle and all the crockery and cooking utensils to eat and prepare food at the chalet throughout your stay.

The chalet has a lovely sunny terrace with garden furniture (6 chairs), two sun beds, a bench, a Weber BBQ and various children's outdoor toys. Access to the wonderful swimming water trough a wooden jetty with swimming ladder. A boat can also be moored along the side.

The area is wonderful for walking, sailing and cycling. For example, explore "het Gein", a beautiful area between Abcoude and Driemond, where you will pass a mill that Piet Mondriaan has painted. Be sure to visit 'Anna Haen' or Boutique hotel "De Witte Dame" along the way, a beautiful old former train station building with a beautiful terrace to eat or drink. Or go back in time by visiting the Fort in Abcoude, an old fortress from 1884. You can cycle to Amsterdam in 45 minutes. Or you cycle to the train station in Abcoude or the metro station at Amsterdam Holendrecht where you can take the train or metro with your bike. The chalet has 2 bicycles for adults and 1 children's bicycle that you can use. Or you can rent bicycles (including electric ones) at 'Ollie's' in Abcoude where you can also enjoy a nice meal.

Within walking distance of the chalet is 'Zwier' and 'Jachthaven Bon' where you can rent a canoe, sup, sloop or sailing boat to spend a day sailing on the lakes. Or rent for several days and moor your boat at the chalet. From the Vinkeveense plassen you can make great trips, for example in 2 hours you are on the Amsterdam canals. Or sail through the Waver or take a tour past glorious country estates that you will find in abundance in this area.

Culinary there is also plenty to be found within walking distance. For example "Koffiehuis de Goede morning", a super romantic place where you can have breakfast and lunch and they have homemade cakes. Or enjoy lounging on Wander Island, a beach club on Island 1 on the lakeside with a beach. The children will not get bored here either with the adjacent playground. Sail or drive to the 'Harbor Club', which has a location on the Vinkeveense plassen. Do you take your bike or car? Then the choice is huge. There are plenty of tasty culinary discoveries in Abcoude, Vinkeveen and other neighbouring places. There is a folder in the chalet with even more tips.

With bad weather you can, for example, take the train in Abcoude and visit the neighbouring towns and cities. You are in Amsterdam in 2 stops and in Utrecht in 3 stops. Or stay at the chalet and play one of the many games that are available or watch TV.
