The yurt does not only exist in Mongolia. It is a traditional nomadic dwelling found in many countries of Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, etc). It is a dwelling that traditionally really only provides for basic needs. The yurts have been developed over the centuries in such a way that it can be easily moved, in order to follow the seasons together with the livestock and find a place with fresh grass and fresh water.
Staying in a yurt is similar to staying in a big tent. Inside it is cosy and warm, yet you are always connected to what is happening outside; you are more aware of the weather (cold or warm, rain or dry) and you hear the birds, animals and all the sounds around you.
The traditional Mongolian yurt with a modern twist; our yurt has beautiful large windows at the front and also has electricity. This way we combine a bit of luxury with a "less is more" feeling.
A traditional Mongolian breakfast is actually quite basic, but always freshly prepared. Tea, dough products and dairy products are often the main ingredients. Our breakfast consists of"Boortsog" (freshly baked yoghurt biscuits),"Gambir"(freshly baked slightly sweet flatbread), 2 kinds of jam, cream and yoghurt with fruit.
The cost of a dish is 18.50 per person. The dishes we prepare are the same as those we prepare in the cooking workshops. See more information on this page.
We live on the edge of a very small village in the Kop van Noord Holland. It is an important horticultural area. In spring you see here fields full of flowers and there are also flower related activities. Furthermore, we are only 8km from the coast. In about 25 minutes you can cycle to the beach.
On the"Surroundings" page we have listed places you should definitely visit, should you want to do something outside the yurt (beach, hiking areas, cycling routes, museums, events).
