The training centre provides the infrastructure to deliver and implement open call trainings and programs funded by Erasmus+. Full time volunteers run the training centre and they maintain and prepare the buildings for these occasions.

During the projects and trainings, the organising team and the participants are solely responsible to keep these on going tasks, which results in a self-run approach. This is a fundamental reason for our great offers and pricing.

The Training centre of the foundation Olde Vechte is located in Ommen the Netherlands. It is near the river de Vecht at the edge of the historical town Ommen (17.000 inhabitants). It is only a 500 metres walk to the city centre, with supermarkets, restaurants and a wide range of shops.

Even being in the countryside, it is only 1,5 hours by train to Amsterdam airport and therefore, it is easily reachable for international travellers.

The property has two independent group accommodations. The main house Olde Vechte has 17 sleeping rooms and the Country House Zeesse 9 sleeping rooms. Both buildings have a full-equipped kitchen, living rooms and cosy areas. There are outside terraces and surrounding playing fields with a great view over the river to the town.

In 2016 a new training room of 150 square metres was built. It has a new sustainable floor heating system where the sessions of the trainings take place and provides also a work place for groups.

Next to the premises, there are 3 apartments. Each of them has 4 rooms to host (12) the volunteer’s and staff members of the foundation.

The whole property is around 4 hectares and contains also a small forest, which enables enough space to be on your own in the breaks or reflection moments during the training. It is a great spot to do all kind of outdoor activities, games or personal assignments, working in couples or small reflection groups.

It’s lovely landscape with historical places; the very small village and family farms make the countryside of Ommen. This landscape is inviting to have bicycle rides or a nice walk in the forest around the corner.

    - Costas Papsanakis, Greece

  • "It was perfect environment for understanding my self through others. It was hard , and uncomfortable but at the same time it gave me many breakthroughs. To be honest , I received the most only after the training when I was reflecting on my own. I believe each one receives his own experience in Choice. "
