I want to spend the summers in a less warm country. I prefer a maximum temperature of 21 degrees Celsius and in the Netherlands it is often 25 degrees or warmer in recent years. I have written down below from June 15 to August 15, but I am flexible about that.

A wooden house in the countryside near Leiden. More photos follow soon.
There are four rooms. Downstairs living room with open kitchen, bedroom with double senior bed, bathroom and toilet.
I have mosquito screens for all windows and for the patio doors. Also in the living room an electrically operated roller shutter and an electrically operated sun screen. The bedroom is always Cool in summer because it is on the north. Above two rooms of which one can be used. Here is a single bed. Because this atticroom is also the storage of a lot of Playmobile and other toys I don’t offer this room offically, but you can use it. Also the toys if you come with kids. There is also a double selfinfloating airbed you can use. On this floor is a toilet, cold and hot water.
In the bathroom is a shower, a sink and the washer and dryer are here. The kitchen has a dishwasher.
There is a piano you can use. I have a brand new e-bike you can use and a normal bike.

I am 69 years old and live in the nicest city in the Netherlands: Leiden! I am retired. Until 2014 I worked in the career consulting industry. The first 20 years as manager of a consultancy firm, then as a self-employed person. For the last 5 years I worked as a teacher to train career counselors. Since I retired, I have time to look after my four grandsons. Next year I go with the oldest, then 14, to Japan. I hope to make a trip with the others, who are now 5, 2 and 2 years old when they are teenagers. I study Spanish and piano, both as "dementia prevention". I like cooking, baking and cycling.
