Property description

On a unique location, in the Green Heart of the Netherlands, on the edge of Alphen aan den Rijn, a splendid cottage was recently built and opened. The cottage is cozy and picturesque, decorated in country style; a place to enjoy and to relax. Situated nearby the windmill, you can see the windmill to one side and the beautiful polder landscape to the other side, where in summertime, cows and sheep graze outside. The cottage is surrounded by 3 terrasses.

The cottage is adjusted for 4 persons, of course less is also possible. An extension up to 6 persons is possible by use of one extra bedroom, or up to 8 persons by connecting the next door apartment, by way of an inside door. For more information about the extra bedroom or apartment, please ask your question on the 'Contact' page.

The cottage and the connected house are built in nostalgic country style, in perfect harmony with the windmill and the landscape. Lots of old materials have been used, like beams, bricks and the rooftiles of the former old cowshed.

On the groundfloor there is a cozy double bedstead (160 x 210 cm) and above of this bedstead it is possible for one or two children to sleep.This is an extra sleeping possibility, children don't have to sleep there. The space above the bed on top is limited because of the ceiling. All matresses are of good quality.

There is also a complete modern kitchen, a dining table and a cozy lounge area on the ground floor. There is also a bathroom with a shower and a seperate toilet.

On the first floor is a bedroom with two single beds. The boxsprings and mattrasses are of good quality. We have 'four season' wool duvets on all of the beds.

You are a guest of Hans and Susanne Vrolijk and their two children, the inhabitants of the windmill. Besides his Job as a technician, Hans is the miller of this windmill on a voluntary basis. Susanne Is a portaitpainter.
They would be very happy to welcome you!

Ofcourse it is possible to have a look out and inside the windmill, the miller is happy to tell you about its history and function.

The Vrouwgeest windmill and the cottage are beautifully located right in the middle of the 'Green Hart' in the west part of the Netherlands, on the edge of Alphen aan den Rijn; only 30 to 40 kilometers from the cities Amsterdam, The Hage, Utrecht, Rotterdam. Nearby lies the city of Leiden, and the small villages of Woubrugge and Hoogmade. And it is only a 30 minute drive to the beach!

The windmill is built on the waters edge alongside the Heimanswetering, a canal built between the Old Rhine river (Oude Rijn) and the beautiful waters of the Braasem and Wijde Aa (large natural lakes). On the other side of the canal is a residential area and a small marina.

Hiking and biking, you can explore these beautiful green surroundings. There are lots of possibilities for water-sports in the immediate area, such as sailing, renting motorboats/yachts or swimming. We also have some canoes for use. And ofcourse you can do some fishing!

If you are especially interested in windmills, in the immediate area are lots of windmills to discover! Within a one hour's drive you can visit the 'Zaanse Schans' or 'Kinderdijk', famous places because of their windmills.

•Avifauna Birdpark and big playground in Alphen

•Archeon Archeologic theme park about the Middleages and before in Alphen

•Madurodam Holland in miniature in The Hague
