Nice and spacious apartment with lake and historical town view, situated at 35 km from Amsterdam.

From the apartment you will reach the trainstation in less than a 15 minutes walk. Trains for Amsterdam depart twice an hour. The bus stop for Amsterdam is a 3 minutes walk from the apartment, departure 4 times an hour.
Founded in 716, Hoorn rapidly grew to become a major harbour town. During Holland's 'Golden Age' (or 'Golden Century'), Hoorn was an important home base for the Dutch East India Company (VOC) and a very prosperous centre of trade. Nowadays you will find a cheesemarket, beautiful stepped gables and Sunny terraces in the Center.
Enkhuizen was one of the harbour-towns of the VOC, just like Hoorn and Amsterdam, from where overseas trade with the East Indies was conducted. Enkhuizen has one of the largest marinas in the Netherlands. Zuiderzeemuseum is located in Enkhuizen. Architecturally, the Drommedaris is the oldest building in Enkhuizen, from 1540. Tourists take boat trips to and from the port to Medemblik.
Volendam is a popular tourist attraction in the Netherlands, well known for its old fishing boats and the traditional clothing still worn by some residents. The women's costume of Volendam, with its high, pointed bonnet, is one of the most recognizable of the Dutch traditional costumes, and is often featured on tourist postcards and posters.
The North Sea for a swim and sandy beaches is reachable at a distance of 30 km.
