The Space

Comfortable 1 bedroom apartment is situated in the centre of Zutphen, an old historic city with about 30.000 inhabitants. The modern styled apartment is above a shop at the edge of the city centre. On the first floor you find a spacious livingroom at the front, a kitchen/diningroom at the back and a sunny roofterrace at the back. On the second floor you will find a bedroom with a kingsize bed at the back of the house and an office for 3 people at the front, all computers connected to the a high speed Internet (website hidden) the back of the premises there's a free parking lot and a shed with tools, a workbench and it also stores 3 bicycles.

Zutphen is one of the oldest Dutch towns in The Netherlands and is famous for history as an important trade-city because the river De IJssel flows through it. The old centre of the town is in fact unchanged in the last centuries and the town is and a popular daytour location for foreign tourists. Although the town is very quiet, it's situated perfectly in the middle of The Netherlands and it's an ideal 'base camp' for making daytrips to Amsterdam, Utrecht, Den Haag, Arnhem, but also to Germany since the German border is only half an hour drive away.

  • Wir waren Ende Mai eine Woche bei Mark und Ans zu Gast, ein ausgesprochen angenehmer Aufenthalt. Die beiden sind sehr freundliche, aber nicht aufdringliche Gastgeber.
    Das von uns gemietete Haus liegt am Rande eines riesigen Grundstücks, das zu einer ehemaligen Kohlemine gehört. Mark und Ans haben hier einige interessante Bau- und Gartenprojekte am Start.
    Das Haus selber ist mit zwei Badezimmern und zwei Terrassen ideal für vier Personen geeignet, geräumig, und charmant eingerichtet. Sehr nett, dass die beiden schon ein paar Grundlebensmittel in den Kühlschrank gestellt hatten. Gute Duschen, genug Warmwasser für alle, und sehr ruhig.
    Das nahe gelegene mittelalterliche Örtchen Selva ist auch klasse mit seinen superengen Sträßchen, fernab des großen Tourismus. Allerdings ist in dieser Ecke Mallorcas ein Auto angesagt.

    English: We had a pleasant week at Mark & Ans guest house, remotely situated on an unusual ground, a former coal mine. With two bathrooms and two terraces, it's ideal for four people, quiet and charming. Mark & Ans are friendly, easygoing hosts (as is their dog, btw.).
    The nearby town of selva is also very nice, and shows "the other side" of mallorca. Car recommended.

  • A great place where we only stayed one night, but we really loved it. Mark and Ans were very quick to answer mails. God cooking fascilities. Two lovely terraces.
    Much better "in real life" than on the pictures. Seems that Mark & Ans had thought about everything. Strong WiFi signal. We would love to come back - well recommended.

  • Hallo,

    We hebben genoten van het mooie en ruime huis. De terassen zijn heerlijk om te vertoeven. Het was erg rustig en de omgeving is prachtig. We zaten dichtbij de bergen.
    Mark en Ans zijn perfecte gastheer en vrouw.
    Bedankt voor een fijne vakantie.

  • We booked for 3 nights in the lovely of Mark and Hanse.
    It was a peace of paradise for us looking for a quiet place to stay!
    We enjoyed the terrasse at night and in the morning with the dog ☺
    The house is equipped with everything you need, Hanse even had few goods in the frigde to welcome us.
    Only one regret....not being able to stay longer !

  • It is a small house in a great garden setting and has everything that is needed, a wonderful place to wind down relax and enjoy the evening sun on the veranda. Mark and Ans were fantastic hosts and everything worked well. We had some great bike rides in the Tramuntana Range which starts behind Selva. Great little place.

  • We stayed for a few days in this lovely house in Värmland. The house is very nice, and very well equipped. The view from the porch over the river is amazing.

  • ans and mark have a little growing paradise to share... and sharing they do!
    we had a wonderful time thanks to so many things... great weather, great location, nice hikes, good food (e.g. eggs from the owners chicken), nice warm stove and of course great hosts!
    with all their work and projects they still found the time to show us around, have a little chat here and there and to invite us over our last night...
    the only bad thing was, that one week just ain't enough time!! the property itself „la mina san cayetano“ with all its diversity has a lot to explore... and of course the island as well...
    thank you mark, ans and bure for making our first stay on the island very special! we hope to come back! marcin & anne
