Hosting an au pair in the Netherlands

beautiful view of a windmill in the netherlands
When you think of the Netherlands, you think tulips, wooden shoes and windmills. But there is so much more to this small country!
Aside from the obvious benefits of hosting an au pair, it can also be pretty stressful. What about your privacy? We have experienced that you don't have to worry about that at all. Au pairs love to go on adventures, they are adventurous types! Especially in a beautiful country like the Netherlands, who wouldn't want to make memories, visit the beautiful cities and get to know the amazing nightlife that Holland is known for?
