bezuidenhout is brilliant - we love it!
If you can afford to live in the expensive central areas favoured by company-subsidised expats, you can't go wrong really. The Hague is very green for a capital city - there are lots of trees and open areas, so it is a pretty pleasant environment.
If you go further out such as Leidschendam, the property styles vary, are probably more modern and therefore maybe less spacious internally but with bigger gardens.
You estate agent (use one which specialises in expats) will advise on the areas to avoid...most parts of the Hague 'feel safe' to walk around apart from the area around Hollandspoor Station.
The Statenkwartier and adjacent areas, although further from the school, have beautiful brickwork/architecture....so as I say, if you can afford to live in the main expat areas, you are bound to like it. Especially on a sunny day like today
