Familie Buitenhuys Netherlands


 Sleep under the stars in a greenhouse in the middle of nowhere with a great scenery over the fields and Markermeer lake. This hidden gem is just 40 minutes away from Amsterdam!

We keep on searching for great getaways in the Netherlands and this time we have found another amazing hidden gem for you: Familie Buitenhuys. An unique experience awaits you when you visit this wonderful place. The Dutch/German owners, who live in Amsterdam, build 4 different tiny houses in total, all at different locations. However, we want to highlight our favourite one, their cosy greenhouse not far from the Dutch capital.

People call it an “absolute fairytail setting”.
