Home base in Holland

Jump to last reply

We are flying into Amsterdam at the end of April and want to spend a few gentle days in The Netherlands, primarily around the Keukenhof and tulip fields. We would like a place that is not too big (we're skipping Amsterdam this time) and that has some character to explore without being too long a drive from the tulip area. We will have a rental car. We have been considering Leiden, Haarlem and Delft. (Lisse would also be a possibility but there doesn't seem to be much accommodation available there for our dates). We are somewhat attracted to Delft, but I don't know how long a drive it would be to the tulip fields. Any comments or advice would be appreciated, including any specific recommendations for B&B or small hotel accommodations.
