beautiful location
  • + a beautiful hotel, with lovely peaceful and tranquil surroundings right by the river. Bike hire available if you want to explore and the roads are all bike friendly with designated bike lanes. Friendly staff and comfortable clean accommodation. Simply Beautiful.
  • Mosquitoes are a nuisance in the evening so take a good insect repellent
  • * my tip Visit Blokzijlt nearby, it has a beautiful harbour and lovely restaurants. Visit Giethoorn, which is like a mini Venice all on the river. You can hire a small boat to explore which is not expensive and you can explore many gift shops and bars and restaurants as well.
