Garden group wants to visit gardens open to the public

Our garden group will be in Amsterdam from 2nd-5th May to visit the Keukenhof Gardens. Are there any gardens similar to Jardins Remarquables in France (for example Jardin de la Louve in Bonnieux, Luberon, designed by the retired Hermes stylist Nicole de Vesian) which are open to the public by appointment where one can see spring bulbs in a domestic setting?

There are small courtyards called "hofjes". Here a couple of links:

This Dutch initiative seems similar to Jardins Remarquables:

Thanks for asking, I was not aware this existed.

I presume you are already going to the Aalsmeer morning Flower Auction. It's not as good as a garden, but it is still a great outing for gardeners.
