Happy 50th wedding anniversary celebration
Review submitted April 2011. Period of stay: 7 – 14 April
Vinca Minor in Uddel, in the middle of the country really is an eldorado for everyone, irrespective of age.
In April we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary there with our immediate family, half Dutch, half English – three generations – a total of 10 people (6 adults and 4 children).
We rented both the impressive, restored former farmhouse as well as the comfortable apartment above the stables.
One feels immediately at home in this tastefully furnished immaculately clean home surrounded by beautiful and well-maintained gardens. Total area 3.2 hectares! It is indeed fully equipped with everything and for everyone including amongst other things, a well-stocked library, DVDs and not to forget plenty of toys for children of all ages.
Upon arrival we found that breakfast food and some other goodies had been supplied, thus no need for immediate shopping!
At ground level, in the stables below the apartment there is a very nice and large orangerie, which can be heated if so required, also very suitable for meals with the whole family.
The surroundings are beautiful, great for nice walks and bike rides, sightseeing and other activities, with a number on interesting small towns and playgrounds for children (and adults) nearby. The nearby castle (Kasteel Staverden) has a very good brasserie, which is worth a visit.
We were very impressed by the hospitality and friendliness of Mercedes ten Ham the owner, and also her local staff who had even arranged for a beautiful bouquet of flowers on the occasion of our 50th wedding anniversary!
Summarizing, the whole family fully enjoyed their stay and we are already considering a return
