Haarlemmermeer and the area surrounding Amsterdam Airport Schiphol offers a variety of housing options particularly suited to international residents. The area includes Hoofddorp, Schiphol, Aalsmeer, Uithoorn, Kudelstaart, Badhoevedorp and Nieuw-Vennep, and is home to small neighbourhood communities, modern housing options, lush green landscapes and convenient connections to Amsterdam city centre (Haarlemmermeer is just 25 minutes from Amsterdam Central Station, for example).
The region’s proximity to one of the best-connected airports in Europe is a clear advantage for international business trips and residents who frequently visit family overseas. Many international businesses are also headquartered on the airport’s doorstep (such as Asics and Lóreal). While a growing number of trend-setting companies are setting up shop at cutting-edge business parks around the region, resulting in a wealth of career opportunities.
