High Rise Apartment with stunning views - surrounded by green parks and a windmill from 1621 home swap

We offer our pied-a-terre in Voorburg which is one of the oldest towns in Holland and is just outside of The Hague. The home is in a free standing apartment building with the most amazing views - in the far distance is Rotterdam skyline, surrounded by parks and as you look down from the lounge, in the meadow opposite, a windmill from 1621.

Fully renovated, featuring a beautiful solid oak floor, new kitchen and comfortable furnishings. Plenty of parking downstairs. One of the more classy apartment buildings in the area.

About the location

Voorburg is a beautiful part of The Hague, 20 minutes by bike to the Parliament Buildings, the famous shopping streets of The Hague, the royal forests and Royal Palaces. 30 minutes by bus to the beach and the ancient town of Leiden (where Amsterdam is for tourists, Leiden is for visitors that want to see how Amsterdam used to be). Easyly commute all over Europe. 3.5 hrs by high speed train to Paris and London, 7 hrs to Berlin. Holland has the most perfect public transport, and connections to all of Europe.

ABOUT US: We are semi-retired, normally live on the Gold Coast Queensland. We go to Holland regularly and therefore purchased a pied-a-terre over there. This year we are looking for longer exchanges as we wish to spend time in the Sydney area to be near our grand children. We are experienced in home-exchangers - since 2007 we have done 10 - all over Europe, and also NY. We have also done house & pet sits. Last Summer we did 2 in Sydney where we looked after peoples homes and pets.
