Staying overnight on the swell of the water? Come aboard and spend the night in one of the modern ship huts. At B&B Vita Nova you do not enter a hotel, but you get aboard of an experience. Here you experience the city of Amersfoort in a special way.
I am Elène and I welcome you aboard my ship Vita Nova. With pride and pleasure I run a B&B in this sturdy cargo ship from 1940. Discover the charm of this ship at this unique location in Amersfoort.
Our home port is Amersfoort: centrally located, easily accessible and close to the historic city center. The ship is located in the middle of 'De Nieuwe Stad', the creative area of Amersfoort. Here you will find small businesses, workshops and restaurants. Where once stood little cottages , is now the Eemplein. A place that includes a supermarket and cinema. Via the modern Eemplein and the beautiful Koppelpoort you can easily walk to the city center.
