Nieuw Leven is a family business where we have grown up and lived together for three generations. In 2017, we took the step of entirely renovating our group accommodation. Sustainability, service, care, peace, space, nature, luxury, quality, professionalism, offering a personal touch and remaining true to Texel are our focus.
The newly built villas meet all these requirements and the concept is even a European first! The homes are fully energy self-sufficient and thus have no connection to gas and electricity networks. The latest methods of power generation and storage are combined and 75% of the water consumption is saved. The accommodation is:
- Suitable for groups of 2 to 36 people (excluding small children)
- Centrally located, near Den Burg
- Very luxuriously furnished
- Accessible to the disabled
- Fully off-grid and sustainable
- The perfect stay for friends, families and businesses
"Opa Eelman" built the farm in 1928. Historically guests and boarders were received in addition to the farming activities. Around 1965, the first groups came to sleep on fresh hay in the farm as soon as the cattle were let out of the barns.
In 1967, son Paulus passed away. Although the farm business continued, the group accommodation was professionalised. There were (bunk) beds and the group accommodations were adjusted over time. When the farm activities were discontinued in 1986, the focus was placed on the guesthouse. Many groups such as schools, families and organisations have stayed at Nieuw Leven and experienced an unforgettable time.
A few years ago, son Martijn joined the company and came to live with his wife Hendina and daughters at Nieuw Leven. Because the group accommodation did not meet the demands of this modern time, the choice was made to renovate the entire complex. Hospitality is our trade and is in the genes of the family. We warmly welcome you!
