Great spot on the river, new build 2012 luxious design watervilla. We live in a nature reserve at the border of Hollands most beautiful river De Vecht. You can jump directly from your own terrace into the river. Swim, sail, walk, bike. A plenty of activities. Or doing nothing ( dolce far niente ) and rest and look at all kinds of waterbirds and storks.
Unique is the combination of enjoying the rest of the direct environment and visiting the vivacity of our capital Amsterdam. Within 25 minutes by car you are in the very centre of Amsterdam or Utrecht.

Reviewed September 7, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed for 4 nights in July and loved this place. It is located about 5 min outside Vreeland along a small street nest to the Vecht river. It is a bit hard to find as you can't see the boat from the street, just the postbox and there is a small parking place opposite.

The owner was there to welcome us and show us around. They are very friendly and helpful. We could borrow their bicycles, laundry machine, waterbicycle and he prepared the bbq for us.

From the boat you have an amazing view over the river including ducks and ducklings (be sure to bring bread to feed them!). It is a side part of the Vecht so not a lot of boats passing. You can jump of the roof or use the stairs on the side to swim in the river. Stairs are not very easy as they are those swimming pool stairs but they are a bit loose so you have to hoist yourself up from the water.

Boat is complete with a kitchen with everything in there, even wine and beer in the fridge. There is a small...

Puur is an extremely stylish and comfortable self contained holiday home within a larger houseboat. The owner, Cor, lives in the other half of the boat and is as helpful a host as it is possible to find.

If anything the website understates the idyllic nature of the view and the setting. Storks nest opposite, the heron does a daily patrol and we spotted moorhens, cormorants and various ducks & geese - if we were better twitchers we would be able to tell you more.

The location is ideal for touring or visiting Amsterdam. There are nearby pubs/restaurants in Vreeland and Nigtevecht ( just the one closed on Tuesday but right on the river). Weesp is a revelation to anyone who only knows it from the A1 motorway with charming canals, a good selection of eateries and excellent shops from supermarkets thru deli's.

For us at least a package that is hard to beat. The bedroom/bathroom area is accessed by a typically steep and twisting Dutch staircase so potential...
