Our house is located in the Bommelerwaard, a region in the south-west of the Dutch province Gelderland, located between the rivers de Waal in the north, and de Maas in the east and south, and the dammed Maas in the west. There are located several castles in the Bommelerwaard, Slot loevestein, Kasteel Ammersoyen, Huis van Malsen, Kasteel Nederhemert, and Slot Rossum.
Everywhere around you there are rivers and dikes. Within walking distance of the house (5 minutes) there is the beautiful sandy beach het Esmeer, with a huge playground, old harbour, and a bistro where you can eat delicious food. And a snackbar where you can eat, and which deliveres as well. A slightly longer walk on the dike along the river (2.5 kilometers) is a unique location to drink or eat something, and it also opens already from 10 AM:
