The Province of Zeeland is located in the south-western part of the country of Holland which is made up of a number of small islands and a small strip of mainland that borders the neighbouring country of Belgium. A Zeeland holiday is a popular choice with many kinds of travellers and is particularly high on the list of those who wish to have a fun-filled and interesting trip away from home. A Zeeland holiday rental house not only offers some fantastic views of the sea, it provides a comfortable haven to return to after a wonderful day out exploring this unique province.
Although only small in size, the province has a multitude of activities and attractions for visitors to get their teeth stuck into. As it is so close to the water, visitors can expect to enjoy a vast range of water-based activities including sailing, scuba diving, snorkelling, swimming, water skiing, wind surfing and jet skiing. Other activities widely available in Zeeland include golf, tennis, paragliding, horse riding, roller-blading and cycling.
If you have soaked your feet in your Zeeland holiday rental house after a hard day and wish to get out to see the sights, then it is worth heading for the city of Middelburg which is the capital of the province. For some nostalgic Dutch history, Middelburg is home to several older buildings including the beautiful 16th century New Church and the 14th century Koorkerk Abbey. For something that the children in the group will enjoy, head to the Miniature Walcheren Park in the middle of the city. The park has scaled down models of the towns and villages that are part of the province, all situated in a wonderful garden setting complete with quaint Bonsai trees.
If the weather plays a huge part in deciding whether to book a fabulous Zeeland holiday rental house or not, then you must know that you can expect to enjoy fairly warm summers but chillier winters. Most people choose to enjoy a Zeeland holiday between the months of July and August when the temperature during daylight hours can be as much as 22°C. The winter months of December and January offer up colder daytime temperatures of between 2° and 6°C. The annual rainfall amount for the province is 21 inches.
Travellers on a Zeeland holiday can arrive at Antwerp Airport (ANR) which is just under an hour away from the province. Amongst the air operators offering cheap, frequent flights to Antwerp are KLM, Flybe, Eastern Airways and Air France. Passengers can leave the UK from several major airports such as London Gatwick (LGW), Glasgow (GLA), Birmingham (BHX), Newcastle(NCL) and Southampton(SOU).
