Abcoude is a lovely characteristic village perfectly located between Amsterdam (10 km) and Utrecht (20 km). Around Abcoude you can explore the Dutch countrysides with walking trips or bike rides on the dike next to the picturesque river ‘Het Gein’. The village is easily reached by train; it takes 15 minutes by train (or car) to get into central Amsterdam. The trainstation is only a ten-minute-walk or three minutes drive from the house where parking is free of charge. The house is located in the old centre of Abcoude in a deadend street with view on the meddows. Grocery shops, supermarket and two bakery’s are all within walking distance as well as some restaurants and a small playing area for the little ones. On Thursdays there’s a little market near the house with fresh groceries, cheese, meat and flowers.
