The beautiful Green Heart of the Netherlands is a relatively thinly populated area in the Dutch Randstad. The major Dutch cities of Rotterdam, Den Haag, Leiden, Haarlem, Amsterdam and Utrecht lie around this area. Other cities inside the Groene Hart include Zoetermeer, Alphen aan den Rijn, Gouda, Woerden and the smaller cities of Schoonhoven, Oudewater, Haastrecht, Nieuwkoop, Montfoort, Waddinxveen, Bodegraven and Boskoop.
The Groene Hart is characterized by its rural character which contrasts the urban areas around it. Agriculture, nature and recreation are the primary activities in the Groene Hart, where residents and urban visitors can often find rest and many green spaces. The 4 big cities can be easily visited from here. It is the perfect location to enjoy both. Nature and rest and to visit Amsterdam, Rotterdam The Hague, Utrecht and Gouda.
The Groene Hart is a water-rich area, with bodies of water such as Langeraarse Plassen, Nieuwkoopse plassen, Reeuwijkse plassen, the Kagerplassen and the Braassemermeer. In addition, rivers such as the Hollandse IJssel, the Oude Rijn, the Lek, the Vlist, the Loet, the Rotte, and the Meije run through the area.
One of the European footpaths runs through the area. In the Netherlands this is known as the Floris V-pad, part of the Dutch LAW 1-3 path.
Cycling, water-sports and walking is perfect from this area.
Check out the guidebook for lots of great ideas and places to visit and things to do from here.
If you are travelling with children and you need a babysit, you can always ask one of my daughters if they can babysit.

This was one of the most amazing placed I have ever stayed with Air BnB or any site similar. From the moment we booked the host was in contact with us and let us know her expectations as well as provided a very handy guidebook of local cafes, supermarkets, and attractions.
When we arrived we were surprised how easy it was to get to all the major destinations in Holland and how easy it was to find the home. Even though it is only a few km from the highway, you don't hear anything but the farms around you. It was beautiful, peaceful, and perfect.
The cottage when you walk in has everything you need and more. It is well designed and makes you feel like you are home. The host was welcoming and even found some toys for our daughter to play with. The internet was fast, the kitchen awesome, and the layout was perfect.
There was a really great restaurant in the village (just by the bridge) that was perfect. The chef came out and asked us what we enjoyed and then crafted personalized dishes for us, given we couldn't speak Dutch and translating the menu would take forever. It was perfect and exactly what we needed after a long journey. There is also a cheese shop just down the road that makes wonderful cheeses from the cows that are just outside the cottage.
When we left we met up with the host and she double checked that we had a good time, that everything was to our expectations, and even gave us some good tips on different places to go for the rest of our trip of Europe. She was amazing and the perfect start to our adventure.
Nicolette's guest house was the perfect location as a base for our day trips around the Netherlands. It was clean, comfortable and had everything needed for our week-long stay. Her guest house is in a beautiful pastoral setting in the picturesque small town of Nieuwerbrug. Nicollette was the perfect hostess. She and Martijn were very interesting and very helpful with answers to questions about the area and culture of the Netherlands.
Wir haben die Ferienwohnung so vorgefunden, wie sie beschrieben war.
Die Unterkunft war sauber. Alles was man für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt benötigt, ist enthalten. Nicolette hat uns freundlich begrüßt und war bei Fragen hilfsbereit. Für Ausflüge nach Delft, Utrecht, Gouda, Amsterdam etc. ist die Lage der Wohnung optimal. Wir hatten sehr schöne 14 Tage.
We had a very pleasant stay at Nicolette apartment. Nicolette and her family are all very kind and helpful. The apartment is exactly like shown on the pictures, clean, tidy, very comfortable and the countryside all around is really amazing and peaceful. it's suitable for who travel by car.
Thank you Nicolette!
