Welcome to the First Dune in the lovely small village of Bakkum (Castricum). Our renovated home is from 1927 and lies at the foot of the first dune of the National Parc 'Noordhollands Duinreservaat'.

We rent out the house when we're not home ourselves. Our cat will be around, so if you are allergic or afraid, please note this. If you like cats, enjoy :-)

Location

Castricum, Noord-Holland, Netherlands

Forest, dunes, beach at the doorstep. At 200 meters by foot you are in the forest & in just 15 minutes by bike you can reach beautiful isolated beaches. We are situated next to the entrance of the 'Noord Hollands Duinreservaat' (North Holland Dune Reserve); one of the largest National Parcs of the Netherlands, in between Wijk aan Zee and Bergen, with an area of 5,300 hectares, including dunes, beach and an inner dune forest.

Depending the season you can see owl babies flying out in our street, pick bramble berries in the dunes, encounter wild horses, enjoy the magical autumn colours of the forest, or have a windy winter beach completely to yourself.

Just around the corner there are some good restaurants, cafés and an excellent artisanal bakery. At the beach there are some nice beach clubs, open year-round.
