Activities 

The Netherlands is the perfect destination for both - short and long vacation! If you want to explore the diverse nature of the country with one holiday, it’s not a problem! The Netherlands is relatively small, so the distances between its charming villages and natural places can be covered by bike. Just like Denmark, the country is a top destination for cycling trips with its flat surface and cycling routes everywhere. In fact, this will allow you to feel like the real Dutch person who prefers cycling instead of driving. From forests, rivers, rural areas and polder landscapes, to the coastal strips and beaches in The Hague and Zeeland, you’ll be surprised by the hidden beauty of The Netherlands. Other popular activities include walking, boat trips, and fishing. Some of our landlords offer information packs with suggested activities and day trips in the area. 

Renting a house in The Netherlands

The most exciting part of our accommodation is that the houses are always in the natural areas, secluded from the big cities. Firstly, your privacy is guaranteed and secondly, you are surrounded by unspoiled nature. This way you can finally enjoy the peace and quietness that you are longing for. Being a Dutch company, our holiday houses in The Netherlands are quite diverse. You can have a romantic getaway with your loved one in one of our tiny houses and cozy chalets, or an adventurous journey with all of your friends in a spacious villa. Perhaps, you want to have the May holidays and Easter spent with your whole family away from home, or a beautiful Christmas celebration in a foreign country? Spring in The Netherlands reveals stunning landscapes of colorful gardens and verdant meadows. For group accommodation it is best to check out the villas, bungalows, farms or country houses. If you haven’t been to an agriturismo holiday yet, this is your chance to meet the farming culture firsthand and live like the locals. There's also the possibility to stay in a small holiday park, where you will meet fellow nature lovers. 

Our homes differ in their level of luxury. So before booking, think about this: how long are you staying in the home, and what kind of activities would you like to enjoy? If you just need a hideaway for the weekend, then pick a more simple dwelling, like a tent or a yurt. Autumn or winter, it doesn’t make a difference. Just check which camping homes are equipped with general heating, and you won’t have a problem with the cold. We also have many cottages and apartments, along with the b&b type of accommodation. The next choice you have to make is about the natural surroundings you most prefer. The Netherlands is flat, so you don’t have the option to stay in the mountain regions, but you still have other possibilities. You can pick a home that is deep in the woods, where you can watch the wild animals from your cottage. You can wake up to the sound of waves and the smell of sea breeze, if you choose a home near the sea. That would be a refreshing experience, not only for the summer months. Or perhaps you want to enjoy a peaceful environment of the fields or a lake with fishing possibilities nearby? Choose an option from the boxes on the left side of the page. Combinations are also possible!
