One of the few villages with convenient public transportation, the Dutch village of Bussum has a population of 37,000
and two train stations, Naarden-Bussum and Bussum Zuid, both on the direct train line to Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam,
and Utrecht. Bussum lies in the heart of the famous nature reserve of Het Gooi ('t Gooi) and Gooimeer lake near Amsterdam.
A stone's throw from Naarden Vesting where the last Dutch prince got married, Bussum is surrounded by forests, fields,
and parks for running, cycling, horse-back riding, hikes, and long walks.

Where else can you get fresh air, no airplane noise, and yet be so close to where you need to be?
