- What to do around Apeldoorn:
The “Apenheul” (a big zoo with only monkeys), “Park Berg en Bos’’ with the climb wood, the Palace “Het Loo”, and the CODA museum for modern art are characteristic for Apeldoorn.
In the environment of Apeldoorn you will find many extensive forests en heathlands, called “de Veluwe”, where you nicely can walk and bike to for instance the sheep herd of Hoog Buurlo, or the wild park and museum “Het Aardhuis” at the village Hoog Soeren. In the village of Beekbergen, also close to Apeldoorn, you can book a guided tour with the “Bosjuffrouw”.
In the park, “Het Nationale Park de Hoge Veluwe” in the village Hoenderloo, you can find the beautiful hunting lodge ‘’Sint Hubertus” in Art Deco style and which is designed by the famous Dutch architect Berlage. In this park you can also find the “Kröller Müller” museum with many paintings of several famous painters as Van Gogh, Mondriaan, Seurat, etc.
But you can also enjoy a ride with an old steam train which goes through Apeldoorn and a couple of villages.
And if you want to relax, there is “Thermen Bussloo”. Thermen Bussloo is one of the most beautiful and exclusive wellness resorts of the Netherlands. There are several saunas and baths, for instance the 4 elements sauna, the roses sauna, the salt cristal sauna and the hamambad.
And if you like to visit special gardens, you must see the ''lifegardens'' of ''Groot Hontschoten'' in the village Teuge. It has a tea house, a art gallery (orangerie), and several beautiful large gardens with nice sculptures en very nice cozy corners with special atmosphere.
No smoking inside the house, but of course you may enjoy your sigaret or sigar in the garden. And when it starts to rain you can smoke in de garage where you can take a seet.
We like animals very much, but we have a cat, so other animals are not possible.
Frans en Jo waren gastvrij, en de B&B was perfect: Het Bed was goed, het Breakfast was uitgebreid met vers fruit en vers uitgeperst sinaasappelsap. Er waren zelfs een Senseo en waterkoker op onze kamer. De douche was heerlijk. Kortom een meer dan goed verblijf in een rustige wijk van Apeldoorn en op loopafstand van het centrum waar legio eetgelegenheden waren.
Frans and were Jo were welcoming hosts and both the room and bathroom were spotless.

We, Jo and Frans, are a special couple and live in a lovely place in Apeldoorn. We are interested in art, spirituality, culture, nature and traveling. While Frans likes to cook, Jo likes to be busy in the garden. Frans has been working in the IT world since he was 27 years old. Later he was working as a project manager in the IT. And after that he studied business economy, and then he started his own company to coach people who wanted to start there own business. Now he is looking for a new challenge...
And Jo..., she is always taking a different way of thinking and lives her life without many standerds. And she always has creative ideas.
We have a very green relaxing garden and we have some space left in our house.. We both like to meet other people. Therefore, we want our guests to share in what our site has to offer. We wish you a warm welcome!
