About Ans Duin
We are pensionada's and live in Almere. Villa Royal is our holidayhome. It is a lovely place after a busy week to be lazy and enjoy the garden and house. Wim't hobby is working in the garden and the result you can see in the japanese looking garden in Lathum . Ans is a professional painter/artist and exposes her paintings all over Europe. See: www.AnsDuinArt.nl.
Ans Duin purchased this Chalet in 2000
Why Ans Duin chose Lathum
This house gives us and our guests the ultimate holidayfeeling. After a day of visiting the area or an other part of Holland you can rest in one of the lazy sitcorners in the cosy garden. The garden offers privacy and is fenced with conifers and closed with a gate. So very safe for your little kids.
What makes this Chalet unique
Recensie of 1 of our guests from Australie: 'We want you to know that our stay in the house was probably the high point in a very succesful European trip (we visited nine countries over forty days). We made the choice from Australia on the basis of the photographs and description on the internet, but the beautiful, cosy and very well-appointed house exceeded our expectations - not to mention the wonderfully landscaped grounds. It was a good base for our visit to the Netherlands, and we got to Maastricht, Leiden, Delft and Brugge and Brussels during the week. . We will most certainly recommend the house to any of our friends who plan to visit the Netherlands and would love to stay there again ourselves.' Villa Royal is situated in Lathum and in the centre of the Netherlands, so it is also a clever starting point for all kind of visits to other cities . Arnhem is the neariest big city for shopping and cllture. But don't forget to visit the small villages. At the park is in te summerseason a swimmingpool with also a small pool for little kids. In te house is a map with folders/flyers in different languages of 'thing to do'in the area.

A+ Holiday Home - Soothing and Relaxing
What a great place to get away for a bit of relaxation! The house has everything you need to settle in and enjoy a great vacation, and the charming owners have clearly put a lot of thought into making their home warm and comfortable for guests.
Even though there are people nearby, you really have a feeling of peace and tranquility because of the beautiful grounds.
There are great bike rides all around and some terrific restaurants close by. It would probably be easier to get around if you had a car, but we came on our bikes and had no problems.
The owners were lovely and we would highly recommend this place to our friends and fellow travelers.
Dear Family Stone, It was a pleasure for us for having guests like you in the house, the house was treated carefully and with respect. We certainly appreaciate to welcome you again as our guests . Ans and Wim.
The property was clean, very spacious and comfortable.
We stayed at the property for three weeks while working close by in Arnhem. This offered a comfortable home for the duration, the owners met us as we arrived and explained all the facilities and were very helpful. would very highly recommend this property.
Thanks guys, it was a pleasure to have you in our holidayhouse. Thanks for treating it so well and left it very clean. See you back may be next time. Kind regards, Ans and Wim.
Home Away from Home
Perfect home away from home. Has everything you could possibly need and more. It's like the owners have just stepped out. It was a pleasure to stay here and you were torn between spending time at the villa or going out as it was that nice.
The Garden surrounding the Villa is amazing too and worth making sure you explore and take in how much work Ans & Wim put in to make it this way.
There is a local shop, swimming pool, bar and few other bits onsite.
There are a few supermarkets within 10 minutes drive, if you wish to explore a little more, take the boat on foot or by bike and cross to rhenen, that was a nice little trip to the shop for some groceries.
We also took a 15 minute walk up the round to the local restaurant which is really nice also.
We visited many places, including efteling, Amsterdam and dierenpark. All within 1 and 15 minutes drive, so it is a very good location too.
Ans and Wim are very friendly and couldn't do more to make you feel extremely welcome and available if needed.
I would definitely recommend to everyone and would definitely consider coming back again.
Tot volgende Keer. Johannes
Hello John and family, It was a pleasure for us for having guests like you in the house, the house was treated carefully and respect. We certainly appreaciate to welcome you again as our guests in VillaRoyal. Ans and Wim.
This is the second time we have stayed at Villa Royal and this time was just as good as the last time. Ans and Wim were as helpful and friendly as they were last year absolutely nothing is too much trouble for them - a lovely couple. All facilities needed for a comfortable stay are available for the whole family. The outside of the villa is as lovely as the inside making it perfect for a family BBQ at the end of the day. The villa is located to easily reach all the beautiful towns around with Amsterdam and the bulb fields being within an hour and half drive. We had a fabulous second visit and are looking forward to our third visit next year. A big thank you to Ans and Wim.
Kind regards Therese, hope to see you again once. Ans Duin.
We stayed in this fantastic spacious, spotless villa with our three grown up children for a week. The facilities are superb for a multi-generational family from the very well equipped kitchen to the satellite TV and internet everyone was well catered for. Ans and Wim gave us a wonderful warm welcome and this was a super start to our lovely week in Arnhem. The villa is well situated to not only explore the lovely town of Arnhem with its variety of restaurants and designer shops but is only an hour and twenty minutes away from Amsterdam - well worth a visit. It is the first time we have visited the Netherlands and this property is an ideal base for such a visit. Ans and Wim are a delight to deal with and their spacious villa with a beautiful garden that provides secluded outdoor space for a BBQ or just relaxing is a joy to stay in.
We all had a fabulous holiday and look forward to a return visit next year.

It was a pleasure for us to take care that everything was o.k. for our guests from England. The family was a lovely family who treated the house and garden with respect and left it very tidy and clean. We should be happy to welcome them again next year. There are so many beautifull things more to see and explore in the neighbourhood of this house, just one week is almost not enough!.
