House rules
Beste vakantiehuis huurder van Woonark " Le Bateau Ivre " ,

Er zijn in Leiden veel dingen te doen en te zien.
Ik zal een tipje van de sluier oplichten:

# Er zijn vele goedkope reders die u voor weing geld door de stad varen zelfs naar de diverse grote meren in de omgeving.

# Leiden heet niet voor niets "Leiden Museum Stad":
U kunt gaan naar Museum Volkenkunde (tegenover de boot), Museum van Oudheden, Naturalis, Kunst museum De Lakenhal, Corpus, waar u als het ware door uw eigen lichaam kunt lopen.

# Er zijn vele gezellige café s en restaurants waar u voor weinig geld kunt genieten van de spijzen, drankjes en de ambiance. Een aanrader is het Spaanse restaurant " La Plancha " , met heerlijk eten en drinken met een geweldige ambiance. In de zomer is er een heerlijk terras op het zuiden, goed voor een paar heerlijke sangria 's in combinatie met wat tapa 's. Slechts 5 minuten lopen van de woonark.

# Bovendien heeft Leiden twee grote kerken, De Pieters Kerk en de Hooglandse Kerk. De Pieters Kerk heeft zijn naam te danken aan de heilige Petrus, de sleutel bewaarder van de hemel. Naar hem wordt Leiden " De Sleutel Stad " genoemd en de Pieters Kerk heeft zijn naam dus ook aan Petrus te danken.

# Bovendien zijn er vele festivals verspreid over het jaar. Wij hebben het 2 en 3 Oktober Festival ter herdenking van het fet dat de Leidenaren na de 80 jarige oorlog de Spanjaarden hebben verslagen. Vervolgens in Augustus het Rapenburg Festival, in februari het Jazz Festival, en in de zomer Werfpop. Dit zijn slechts enkele van de vele festivals.

# Voorts is het heerlijk om in de avond door de oude stad te slenteren en te genieten van de prachtige oude panden en de vele schitterende grachten.

# Op Woensdag en op Zaterdag is het markt op de Nieuwe Rijn. Een mooi moment om ook de oude Burcht te bezoeken, liggende op een heuvel bij de samenkomst van de Oude en De Nieuwe Rijn. Het is een strategisch punt, maar er is nooit gevochten.

# Zo er is veel te genieten en te zien in de oude stad van Leiden!!!

Es war spitze,
Wir waren zu viert auf dem Hausboot und das hat prima geklappt jeder hatte einen guten Schlafplatz. In dem Hausboot fühlt man sich wie Zuhause. Ruud hat uns bei unserer Ankunft sehr freundlich empfangen, für den kleinen Hunger hatte ruud uns auch schon den Kühlschrank gefüllt. Leiden ist eine schöne Stadt, wir waren viel unterwegs, außerdem hat man sehr sehr gute Zuganbindungen .
Danke Ruud für die tolle Woche in Leiden

I was very excited to be staying on a houseboat when visiting friends in Leiden. The boat has very good facilities and Ruud, the owner, was very generous buying in fruit and bread for us. However, Ruud should make it clear on the description of the boat that he has a room on the boat which he works in in the afternoons. As we were under the impression that we were renting the whole boat and the details describe 2 bedrooms we were disappointed that we did not have the boat to ourselves.

Very nice vacation in the houseboat directly on the canal at the center of Leiden.
The landlord Ruud Kenter was so nice and has prepared a stocked fridge for our arrival. His statements on the accommodation and the houseboat were very interesting and helpful. He also informed us in detail about the sights in Leiden and its surroundings. The bedroom, the living room with sofa bed, bathroom and kitchen were clean and tidy. The bed sheets were washed by Ruud in the middle of the week and the house cleaned. Even the adjacent small boat with an outboard motor, we could use a day. Overall it was a very nice holiday in a authentic Dutch houseboat. We can only recommend Ruud and his houseboat.

We spent some sore full day on the houseboat in Leiden in April. A very big thank you goes to Ruud, a gracious host who was very concerned about our well-being.
This was not quite sure our last visit.

Great time, the boat is very comfortable, well appointed and well located. Ruud is very friendly, he even did some shopping for us. It is very discreet when he is on board, it's good advice if necessary. He even did a magic trick for my son to entertain.
In short nothing to say except for when we return!

What a fantastic place to stay. We had been looking forward to staying on Ruud's houseboat from the first time we saw it on your site and we were not disappointed.

When we arrived we were blown away with the location, just over the canal from the culture museum and the old north gate into the town .
We rang the bell and Ruud came to the door with a great big welcome sign to greet us onto his boat, what a lovely touch.

Ruud is a perfect gentleman and went out of his way to give us advice on how everything operated on the boat and gave us ideas on things to do during our stay.

The boat is so comfortable and peaceful that you just drift away( not literally as the boat is tied up) and chill out completely with a glass of wine on the patio just outside the large veranda windows at the front of the boat.

Over the road there is a very secure car park which charges 10 euros for a 24 hour stay so that was very handy for us. The railway and bus stations are just a 5 minute walk away. We took the train to Rotterdam and had a great day there. You can also go to The Hague and Amsterdam by Train, there is even a bus to and from the Airport at Schipol if you do not want to hire a car.

Ruud provided us with a a starter kit of food ,wine, beer and fruit which was very nice of him. We didnt see Ruud again till the night before we left as we were away most days visiting the great many places you can go to in the area . We would highly recommend visiting the windmills at Kinder-dyke, a UNESCO world heritage site and the town of Delft. Leiden itself is a great place to explore and has an interesting market twice a week when you can sample the many cheeses and other local products of the area.

Cheers Ruud and thank you for giving us a wonderful place to stay with all the comforts of home, we loved it .
