My lovely home is located in Hilversum, a village close to Amsterdam (35 km), Utrecht (17km) and Loosdrecht (5km; water sport area). Hilversum is a cosy village with nice architecture (Dudok style) and all facilities you could probably need. The 'Gijsbrecht', is a lovely shopping street where you can buy groceries and shop for clothes, wine, cheese, fish and (french!) bread. In the near vicinity you will find a nature reserve (2700 hectare!) where you can walk or have your morning run.
