Wow !! What a special place!

  • 5 out of 5
Run!..don't walk..to spend a vacation in this beautiful home in the Dutch countryside.
A wonderfully clean and peaceful retreat surrounded by farmsteads and some of Holland's finest recreational cycling paths.
Enjoy the atmosphere of the nearby villages of Elspeet and Uddel ...,with their laid back pace of life.
You can easily cycle there from the house on the bicycles provided!
The "great for shopping towns" of Apeldoorn and Amersfoort are an easy 30 minute drive..and don't forget to drive out to Spakenburg, Volendam and Harderswijk, all typical small towns where you will see the locals wearing traditional costumes.
We had flown in from Los Angeles to visit with our Dutch and Swiss families..and Vinca Minor proved a wonderful base to entertain and welcome.
We have travelled the world both working and vacationing..and this ranks in the top 5 of our places to stay.
The house is spacious yet somehow cozy, full of contemporary touches mixed with old world charm.It really is special!
And the gardens surrounding the house are spectacular. This year, as in most of Europe, the seasons are a little delayed..so we got to enjoy the late flowering purple rhododendrons..and to pick the first strawberries.

Loving the homeland

  • 5 out of 5
This home is very beautiful and spacious, the yard is amazing. We loved all the space and bedrooms. The kitchen was great, we never did learn how to start the oven... This home is super clean and the home was cleaned twice during our stay, it was immaculate when the ladies finished cleaning. We found this home very centrally located, as we did a lot of day trips in Holland and even a couple of nights to France. Thank you, the home and our trip was a great experience.

Absolutely Lovely!

  • 5 out of 5
Vinca Minor is wonderful!! The pictures on Home Away do not do it justice, as so much is hard to capture in photos. The house is beautifully renovated, and so clean and fresh feeling. The gardens and tall hedges are endless and simply amazing. We adored spending time in the glassed-in gazebo. Vinca Minor has lots of windows and there are incredibly lovely views from all the rooms. The town of Uddel is close by (walking distance) and has a substantial grocery store and a restaurant.

We stayed for a week with our two young girls - ages 5 and 6. They thoroughly enjoyed playing in the yard, visiting and feeding the horses, the small play room on the 3rd floor, and the princess bed. We really appreciated the toys in baskets strategically placed around the house (including plastic dishes in a basket in the kitchen). These were unexpected and ever so welcome.

Vinca Minor has a certain formality that is pleasing for adults and yet is completely kid-friendly. Mercedes made us feel truly welcome to her home, – and provided a fabulous welcome basket that was remarkably generous and was still "giving" by the end of the week. We found Vinca Minor to be a unique and memorable place that utterly delighted us throughout our stay. We could not leave without thinking about when we would return!

What a wonderful place to spend vacation!!

  • 5 out of 5
We absolutely adored our stay at Vinca Minor. We spent 8 wonderful days there, including the celebration of our son's 3rd birthday. We rented the home to have a bit more space, as we came from the US to visit my husband's family. We were able to accommodate our entire family, including Bert's parents from Groningen and sister's family from Zoetermeer! The setting was perfect with great spaces for our little guys, ages 3 and almost 2, to play. They loved playing soccer in the courtyard and walking through all the gardens. The playset was also great for the boys. One of the best treats was going out to feed the horses apples and carrots everyday. It was amazing to have them so close by..basically in the backyard!! There are lots of nearby places to explore...Garderen is a wonderful village and there is a nice new Albert Hein in Ermelo. We enjoyed eating at the Bonte Koe in Garderen, enjoyed pancakes in Hoog Soren and going for a horse ride at de Kronkel. I could have moved right in!! Thanks to Mercedes for being so accommodating of our request for extra days!!

The Best Stay Ever!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Vinca Minor is a location you can only dream of with all the luxury you need and the real "go beyond" mentality of it's owners makes this is a unique and unforgettable experience.

As soon as you enter the house, you immediately feel at home and the complementary welcome basket is this first of many pleasant suprises.The interior is tasteful, contains everything you possibly need and has many opportunities to sit back and relax.

For us it was a unique stay and we are already longing to go back to Vinca Minor.

A truly impressive villa

  • 5 out of 5
We are a family of 4 from the UK and stayed in the villa for a week in July 2011. The description of the property and the reviews from other vacationers were consistent and accurate. This is a really attractive and spacious villa, with nice touches (e.g. a basket of food goodies/essentials when you arrive) and so many attractive features (e.g. hi spec music system and great collection of jazz CDs, a double glazed summerhouse and orangery that were great for breakfasts, big rooms nicely furnished, and a good sized kitchen with lots of equipment for those who enjoy cooking). The garden is a delight - we just kept finding more nooks and crannies as the week progressed. Nearby Uddel has a good supermarket and just few kilometres away Elspeet has a couple of good eateries, including an excellent pancake house. You really should cycle when you come here - there are so many good routes nearby. The highlight of the week for us was a trip to the Kroller Muller Museum and the De Hoge Veluwe National Park, where Van Gogh and many other artists' work were well displayed in a remarkable building, a walk around the sculpture park in the grounds - all finished off with a brilliant cycle ride across a unique sandy landscape with a rainstorm brewing (and hitting us full in the face) - WOW, exhilarating or what!

Situated half way the 3 miles scenic road from Lake Uddel to Staverden Castle and only a ten minutes drive to the cute old villages Uddel, Garderen. Elspeet. All with shops and charming restaurants.

Close to attractions like De Hoge Veluwe with the famous Van Gogh Collection, Zoo's (Arnhem and Amersfoort), Dolfinarium (Harderwijk), Royal Palace 'Het Loo' and the kids paradise Julianatoren (Apeldoorn).

This is the green heart of Holland, 'The Veluwe'. This area is very popular for hiking, biking, running, horse back riding, playing golf, sport flying and gliding. At the Veluwemeer the most popular sports are game fishing, sailing and windsurfing.And in the winterseason: it's skating!

Almost all beautiful old Dutch cities such as Amsterdam, Den Haag, Leiden, Delft , Utrecht are within a distance of a 1-1 1/2 hour drive. But don't forget the old centers of the nearby cities Putten, Elburg, Kampen, Deventer, Zutphen. All are less than an hour to drive
