In the time I lived in Lisbon I also had a B&B and I ran the B&B with a lot of pleasure.
Back in the Netherlands I missed it to welcome guests in my house. So I decided to create a new B&B.
My home is built in 1890 as a carpentry workshop. The construction is made from wood. Since 2011 the house is on the official monumental list.
It has views over meadows and stands on the edge of the woods. The double room has a very comfortable king size bed with cable television. The bathroom is shared. Feel free to use the living room with an open kitchen. Also you can use the balcony to relax.
Artland is situated in the region Gooi & Vechtstreek. This area of Holland is a beautifully wooded area with many lakes. An area where you can enjoy many water sports. In Kortenhoef you can rent a boat or canoe so you can discover the protected area of the lakes of Kortenhoef. In the right time of year it is full with gorgeous multi colored water lilies. It is just 3 km’s from our home. In wintertime there is the possibility to skate along the frozen lakes.
‘s-Graveland, the village, is famous for the ten historical outside places.
In the beginning of the 17th century the rich merchants from Amsterdam used to build their stately homes here. The trail called, ‘s-Graveland outside places, brings you along 8 estates with pretty houses. It is a 17 km walk. The whole area has great bicycle paths. You can use the free bikes and if you desire I organize a picnic that you can take with you on the bike and enjoy it in a wonderful spot along one of the routes.
It is not only the nature that is appealing in our area. Around ‘s-Graveland there are several nice villages that you can visit, to do some shopping or to visit a museum and enjoy a delicious lunch. Amsterdam is only 20 km’s away and easy to reach by train. There are several good restaurants in the neighborhood. There is even one across the street.
I am very much looking forward to welcoming you to my lovely Artland B&B. I will try and make your stay a pleasant time that you will think back with a smile on your face and telling your friends about us!
Hope to see you soon!
