Northern Holland region


Edam, town of cheese and much more!

We have a very affordable golf club 10 minutes' drive away in the beautiful wooded area!

The area is ideal for cycling trips through beautiful real Dutch landscapes and on the dikes along the famous IJselmeer

Bike rental in the village only costs € 8.50 per day.

Edam has more to offer: cosy shopping streets and convivial terraces where once can enjoy a drink, a bite to eat and the local colour.

There is the marina and a campsite on the edge of the IJsselmeer. Countless watersport fans from far and near have found their way to this public swimming and sailing area , just outside of Edam.

The most obvious association with the name 'Edam' is 'cheese'. For centuries the well-known round Edam cheeses have been sent from this litte town to all corners of the world.

The cheese market, once again restored to its place of honor, is enacted weekly during the summer months. And nearby cheese warehouses keep alive the memory of a colourful post. There are also the cheese farms in the area of Edam en Volendam. However, Edam is more than cheese.

Edam is a city with a rich history. It began in the 12th century, when farmers and fishermen settled along the little Ye river. With that 'Yedam' was a fact.

This primitive settlement developed into an increasingly prosperous town well into the 17th century. Shipbuilding played an important role in this growth.

Once Edam had a great number of ship yards building many famous ships. A good example is the 'Halve Maan' (Half Moon), the ship that the Englishman Henry Hudson sailed in 1609 when attempting to discover a northern route to the East Indies.

A futile attempt in fact, because he stranded on the island of Manhattan! Beside shipbuilding, commerce was a major contributor to the thriving development of Edam.

Together with Amsterdam, Hoorn and Enkhuizen, Edam was one of the most important commercial towns in Holland.

Today Edam is a town with authentic 17th century architecture, convincing proof of its rich past. When walking along the old streets and quiet canals, one can easily imagine how it must have been in a Dutch town centuries ago.

Well preserved gables, squares, bridges and monuments capture and hold the attention of the visitor.

A stroll takes one past the tea-houses on the 'Schepenmakersdijk', the leaning Carillon tower (1561), the museum with the floating cellar and the Tourist Information on the Dam square -once the town hall of Edam- to the 'Grote Kerk' (Great Church).

This church is one of the largest churches in the Netherlands. It has an extraordinary collection of richly coloured stained glass windows dating from the 17th century.

We could easily continue summing up the attractions Edam has to offer, but we prefer inviting you personally to come to Edam and discover the quiet and beauty of this little IJsselmeer-town. You're more than welcome!

Welcome in Volendam

Legend has it that the Volendam coat of arms is a compliment to the beauty of the Volendam girls !

No wonder that a famous singer sang the praise of this characteristic Dutch fishing village in the words: "Anyone who wants to see the real beauty of Holland, goes to Volendam".

As a result of its completely insulated location, this village preserved its character for six centuries, also because of the tough vitality of the fishermen.

The characteristic small houses, which together with the canals and the drawbridges form the most picturesque spots, present the visitor an atmosphere of geniality and romance

Don't forget to visit the Volendam museum with the 'Sigarenbandjeshuis', where cigar rings are on display.


is called the "backyard of Amsterdam ', but that is far too irreverent name for Waterland: green, watery landscape that immediately begins north of the IJ. This is the Holland as the world knows Holland: low meadows, ponds and ditches long, winding dikes, bridges, cows, cane, farms and ancient villages, winds and heavy skies and lots of birds. And in winter: ice skating!

Waterland - it is not called so - can discover the best from a canoe. Paddling through a maze of canals and more than a man reed watch the cows at the water from the ditch

The IJselmeer offers a number of opportunities for recreational activities.

Sailing, swimming, skating, windsurfing, kiting

Our area is perfect te make long walks en cycle tours

"Spacious flat with good kitchen but the single bathroom and separate toilet proved difficult;lt for 5 adults"

Good arrangement with upstairs flat and owners' accommodation downstairs.The location is attractive and very safe but too far too walk into Edam to eat or to catch the bus into Amsterdam.

We liked the area very much and it would certainly be most attractive in warmer weather! Our idea was to stay outside Amsterdam but with easy access to the city in order to see more of real life in Holland. This aim was certainly achieved and the bus journey into town was very easy.
Our major difficulty was with the toilet and bath arrangements.

For a low price we provide the highest quality possible for groups up to 8 people.
For this price, we offer a very spacious, comfortable apartment with a luxurious bathroom with double sinks, whirlpool tub, shower room and a separate toilet room. In accordance with the description in our ad.

The old town centre of Edam with several restaurants, cafes and terraces is no more than 8-minute walk away.
We have two bus stops to the centre of Amsterdam on 3 and 2 minutes' walk away.

If you are unable to accomplish this distance on foot, we can arrange a minibus up to 8 people for you to Edam and Volendam center and the local central bus station for only € 10, - each way

"¡Excelente apartamento!"

Viajamos una familia de seis personas, y la verdad que nos encantó. El apartamento se encuentra en un barrio muy tranquilo y muy bonito que vale la pena recorrer.
El apartamento se encuentra en un segundo piso, y la verdad que es muy lujoso. La cocina es muy amplia y completa, posee un living grande, un comedor, el baño es muy amplio con un jacuzzi además de la ducha. Y la verdad que el señor Peter y la señora Esmee son muy amables!

Thank you for the compliments, we appreciate that very much and you were great guests.
