Please consider our neighbors when you are in the garden. You have your privacy, but they will also appreciate theirs.
We are a documentary filmmaker (Els) and a schoolteacher / carpenter (Marc), with two daughters in the primary school age. We love films, literature, arts. But also as a family, we love sailing and skiing.
Amsterdam is our basis, but we chose to live just a little outside the big busy city to provide more tranquility to our children and a large garden to ourselves.
Marc almost built all of our house himself. We are proud to welcome you in our lovely house.
