Colourfull family house in Laren, Netherlands/ Looking for a christmas-exchange 2017!!!

 
As a family of 4 we love to travel the world! Our children are 14 & 16 years old and play hockey. We, Michel (57) and  Sabine (47) used to travel the world for work & pleasure. Now travelling with our kids we think home-exchange is a perfect way for new adventures.
We live in Laren, a small beautifull village very close to Amsterdam, also called 'the backyard off Amsterdam". Within 25 minutes you're in downtown Amsterdam.
There are 5 bikes available, a nice way to explore the area whith a great diversity off things to do. (forest/heather/lake) Small historic villages as Naarden Vesting and Spakenburg are reachable by bike. On the lake 'Gooimeer' you can swim, sail or surf , also reachable by bike.
Our neighbourhood is childfriendly; there are a lot off playgrounds within walking distance and the public swimming pool is only a 5 minutes walk.

We love music! In our house you can find a piano, a drum kit and a guitar, feel free to use it.
Michel and Skip are allergic to cats so no cats please !
