About the Property

Apartment near Amsterdam, for 4-7 guests, free Wi-Fi and parking space

Are you looking for an attractive and characteristic Dutch property in a unique ambiance? Visit our beautiful furnished apartment. We are located at the outskirts of Aalsmeer, very close to Schipol and Amsterdam.

The River Amstel runs in front of and behind the pasture, right where our cows graze. Your dream holiday will come true when you sit on the dock and enjoy the views of the pasture.

'Huis ter Lucht' is a new property with 6 luxurious apartments near the river and a wonderful pasture for animals. Each apartment can accommodate up to 7 guests. It consists of 2 bedrooms (1 in an attic) with a total of 5 single beds (2.10m) with box springs. The 6th and 7th guests can sleep in a luxurious sofa bed in the living room (it can be transformed from a bed into a seconds). There is a spacious bathroom with a shower cabin, an open plan kitchen and a marvellous living area.

To entertain the children, we offer go-karts, a big trampoline, a barn, a jet ski and a small football field.

Agricultural activities: Both you and your children can help in the farm. During summer, you can herd the cows from the pasture to be milked. They are milked twice a day. You can do it yourself or just be a spectator!

We live only 13 km away from the airport. Therefore, if you travel by plane, you will arrive to 'Huis ter Lucht' in just 15-20 min. Welcome!

We also offer a boat for rent, with a 25 hp motor and capacity up to 8 people.


Minimum age 21 years.

Deposit: €150. It will be refund if the boat is returned clean and in good condition.
Animals are not allowed.

Car: Necessary

We live in a farm with 70 cows, 16 km from the South of Amsterdam. We love living in a farm and have given a new direction to our lives since 2010: we have built 6 new apartments that share the style of our company. 'Huis ter Lucht' is located in a unique place, along the River Amstel, and immediately it makes you feel as if you were on vacations.

Location of 'Huis ter Lucht': 23 km from the beach. The closest lake is 5 km away and the River Amstel is just 25 m from the apartment. The flower market in Aalsmeer, the largest in the world, is 4 m away and the airport is 13 km away. Among the 4 cities that are near, Amsterdam is the closest, while the other 3 are about 45 min away.

Other activities: graze cattle, milk cows, herd the cattle feed the ducks, many other things.
