House in Linden, Netherlands

The house
The house is the former living area of a converted farm, dating from ca. 1830.
On the ground floor there is a cosy kitchen-dining room, a large living room with a fireplace. There is a bathroom with a shower, a toilet and washing-machine.
On the first floor you will find one large bedroom, a smaller bedroom ( double bed) and a small officeroom with the possibility of a bed. There is a small bathroom with shower and toilet. And finally there is a sauna, bastu. On te second foor there is a third bedroom ( double bed)
The house is equipped with various amenities: two tv-sets, a computer and a piano. The house is comfortably furbished; the kitchen has been kept in the style of the old farmhouse. The house is surrounded by a garden, equipped with garden furniture. You will find two bikes in the garage.
The house is part of a larger house, in the other part lives our daugher and her familiy. The house and gardens are totally separated
The village Linden
Linden is a small, originally agrarian village with less than 300 inhabitants. Right in the centre is the 500-year-old, recently restored Lambert's church. For thirty years now people have been winning sand and gravel around the village, thus creating a beautiful nature area with a big lake as its centre. This lake offers great possibilities for water-recreation: swimming, sailing, surfing. of course, the surroundings are also perfectly suited for walks and bicycle-tours. It's only five minutes' walk from the house to the lake.
The surroundings
Linden is situated on the river Maas, at the meeting-point of three provinces. It's ten minutes drive to the medium-sized town of Cuijk, where all major shopping can be done. Cuijk is easily accessible by public transport.
In the vicinity are also several quaint old villages, such as Grave, Megen and Ravenstein, all worth a visit. Linden is also surrounded by woodlands and nature areas, such as de Tongelaar, de Mookerheide (moorland), de Hatertse vennen (fenlands), de Ooijpolder, de cilinderwand (an undulating terrain with a golf course) and the Reichswald (a forest) near the town of Kleve, just across the border in Germany, some 20 kilometres from Linden.
Nijmegen, Charlemagne's city, with its many sights, is 12 kilometres away. There are excellent shopping and entertainment facilities, such as theatres, cinemas, and numerous pleasant pubs and restaurants. Also Den Bosch with its gothic cathedral is well worth while a visit.
Since Linden is close to the motorway (E31 or A73), various large towns and cities in Holland, Belgium and Germany are within easy reach. By car it will only take you 45 minutes to get to Arnhem, 60 minutes to Utrecht; and dam square, Amsterdam or the Norths Sea beaches are only 90 minutes away. Antwerp, Brussels or Cologne are not more than two hours' drive away. So, you see, plenty of possibilities for cultural exploits, or simple enjoyment of nature, whatever you wish.
