  • Perfect location

    "My husband and I stayed in this quaint apartment for our second stay in Paris. The location can not be beat. We walked or biked to most destinations. If it was a little further, we hopped on the Metro. The velib and metro station is a quick 5 minute walk from the apartment. Just down the street is the Rodin Museum. It is a quick walk to Invalides and a 10 minute bike ride to the Eiffel Tower. The apartment also has a washing machine and clothes dryer which made for very easy and light packing! We will definately stay here again during our next stay in Paris. Martine was a pleasure to work with and answered all of our questions prior to our arrival very promptly.I highly recommend this apartment."

  • A truly amazing spot.

    "The location was very central,the breakfast each morning was delicious with fresh baked goods,accommodations were very private and comfortable and the outdoor area with the pool was perfect for happy hours and relaxing. But best of all were the owners Claude and Sylviane who were so helpful in planning our ventures and making our stay an unforgetable experience. A perfect vacation. Connie and Dave Doherty"

  • Real Venice

    "This was our first trip to Venice and we didn't care where we stayed as long as it was comfortable, quiet, and affordable. This place sounded perfect, and we were happy that we received such quick emails from Barbara explaining how to get there and answering any questions. So -- here are the pro's and con's of our visit. Pro's It is blissfully quiet. No partying or stomping around of other tenants. It rained the whole time we were there so we were unable to sit in the tiny sliver garden downstairs, but it was very private and we would have enjoyed that. Our bed was heavenly -- soft sheets, great pillows, lots of blankets to choose from. We slept VERY well while we were there (and we were only there for 3 nights). Barbara has some great books -- they perch in many places and in many rooms. I wished I could have stayed longer just to read some of them! The apartment is eclectically decorated, which we enjoyed. The windows could be opened and you could see slivers of the Venice rooftops -- lovely. Her directions and suggestions were spot on -- and the person waiting for us was very sweet and friendly. She was worried that she didn't know enough English to explain, but she was excellent! The two bathrooms are beautiful! You take a shower and it gets everything else wet -- we thought this was a novelty and fun! Our son (who was 11) slept nicely in the living room -- we had to make up his bed, which meant moving a few hundred (just kidding) pillows, but that was fine. Had we needed to cook, the kitchen had everything needed --small, but who cares! The apartment is in a more residential area, but we walked everywhere with no problem, and that is with my husband who had just badly injured his foot and was using a cane. There was a corner cafe that we spent some time in just around the corner and it/they were lovely. A washer and dryer to use! That was wonderful! CON'S This was not really a "con" for us, as we enjoyed this bit. But if you have trouble with stairs, this is neither the city or the apartment for you. Fortunately, we thought it was fun and just added to the romance of our adventure there are two steep flights going up to the apartment. But for someone with bad knees or poor health, this could be a detriment. The final thing is that the owner asked if she could rip up the $200 deposit check. My husband said no, to please send it. And she never did. So we had to put a stop on it, which was disappointing."

Netherlands Travel Tips

Finding Your Way to the Netherlands

The main travel hub in the Netherlands is Amsterdam. Schipol Airport, which is located on the city outskirts, is the fourth busiest airport in Europe. The airport hosts both domestic and international flights from Europe and many other parts of the world. There are many direct flights to Amsterdam from the major cities in North America. The airport has good rail and road links to Amsterdam and the surrounding communities so getting to your travel destination is easy. Rail is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to tour the Netherlands. Almost every town and city has a railway station and frequent train schedules. In the cities, there are also many local metro trains and buses that provide public transportation. If you enjoy being active on your vacation, one of the best ways to explore is by bicycle. The Netherlands is one of the most bicycle-friendly destinations with marked cycle paths and detailed route maps for getting around. Because the landscape is relatively flat, it is is not strenuous work and you can cover quite a lot of mileage in a day.

Visitors to Netherlands Accommodation

The Netherlands is a destination that has a wealth of cultural attractions. Anyone who has an interest in European history and culture will have great fun exploring the many historical sites and museums. If you enjoy walking and cycling, the Netherlands is the ideal destination for you to explore independently. If you decide you have had enough exercise for the day but have still not reached your destination, you can simply hop on a bus or train to travel the remaining distance to your destination.

Those with an interest in art will want to spend some time in Amsterdam where famous painters like Rembrant lived. The Netherlands is considered a very modern society where there is much tolerance for all different types of people. Many activities that are illegal in many other parts of the world are practiced openly. If you are a more conservative type of person, be aware of where you are exploring so you don't find yourself getting offended.

Netherlands Travel Attractions

Most travelers spend their time in the four main cities, namely Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. These cities are the most populated parts of the Netherlands and contain many of the major cultural and historical attractions. Amsterdam is a city filled with beautiful architecture, interesting museums, scenic canals and many coffee shops. It is the main travel destination within the Netherlands. The Hague is a historical city and the residence of the Dutch Royal family. It is also home to the international judiciary. Utrecht has a beautiful historic center and several interesting museums. Rotterdam is the most modern of the Dutch cities and known for its vibrant nightlife.

Favorite Time of Year to Visit the Netherlands

The Netherlands is located in the northwestern part of Central Europe. It has a relatively temperate climate owing to its flat landscape and proximity to the North Sea. Winters are cold and wet although rainfall occurs throughout the year. The summer days are generally long and warm, and ideal for touring and exploring. Accordingly, summer is the peak travel season. June and July are the busiest months of the year but the weather is typically warm from May through September. The landscape is green and interspersed with orchards, fields of flowers and quaint towns. If you are traveling to the Netherlands just for the culture and history, you can choose your travel season. While the weather may not be ideal, most museums remain open all throughout the year.
