We live in Hilversum, wich is a middlesized community about 35 km from Amsterdam, by train about 30 minutes. Station in Hilversum is a 10 minute walk,several busstops just around the corner, so we have good public transport facilities.There are several beaches at different lakes nearby, about 15 km, were you  can swim, surf, waterski etc.

The main shoppingcentre is a 15 minute walk, where you can buy everything, with lots of nice places to have a drink or something to eat. Then there is a smaller shoppingcentre with three supermarkets and other stores, 5-10 minutes  by bike.There is a indoor swimmingpool 5 min. by bike. Several outdoor swimming pool is 15/30 min by car.
We have a moor and a  forest nearby, were you can have nice walks and also nice places to cycle.
The Hague is also worth while visiting, by train its about one hour.Utrecht about 15 min. by train.
More close to home several little communities with lakes, where you can hire boats, go for a picknic, have a nice meal.
