The farmhouse is situated in a rural environment, on a dike protecting the polder from the river Waal, in the natural reserve of Gelderse Poort (the gateway to Gelderen).
From the back, the fields and distant hill side of Berg en Dal (a glacial till from the latest ice age), offer a grand rolling view of the surroundings. The view form the front gives you a tremendous impression of the broadest river in the Netherlands with cargo ships slowy steaming to and from Germany.
A perfect setting for long walks and bicycle tours.
