In the green heart of Holland, on the north-side of the Alblasserwaard lies the settlement town Nieuwpoort, along the river the Lek. Nieuwpoort is the smallest and most perfect settlement town of Holland. Old fronts of the houses are dreamy reflected in the water of Buiten- and Binnenhaven. The sounds of the carillon in the tower of the town hall (1697) emphasize the rich cultural history. After a walking tour over the walls and through the city, it is nice to have a rest on one of the many seats in the town or at the terrace of one of the cafées. It gives you the impression of ancient history.
At a beautiful location on the Buitenhaven, you will find the monumental home of Family Den Braven. The house is a monumental premises and served as a farmhouse. Next to it is situated the barn, that served as take out for horses and belonged to the Café De Dam. The horses and carriages were stalled inside, while the driver went to the café or e.g. to church. The floor was used to store hay and straw. After a radical rebuilding in 1996 a pleasant Bed & Breakfast was realized here, and the authentic details remained.
