Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Overijssel, Netherlands your home away from home

The province of Overijssel is in the east of the Netherlands and the capital, Zwolle, is on the banks of the river Ijssel. The river was the reason the area was developed around 800AD when Frisian merchants used the location as a trading point. The area remains largely agricultural although cities such as Zwolle have buildings dating back to the 13th and 15th centuries. It has a varied landscape from river plains, moorland, ridges of hills, arable and sandy areas and the Nature reserves extensively protect wildlife and birds. It is an attractive area for Overijssel holiday rentals.

Things to Do in Overijssel

Walking, driving and cycling in this area are wonderful ways to enjoy the pastoral scenery and local towns. The cities of the Overijssel region offer a pleasant balance of history and activities. Enjoy the many local bars and cafés such as the Public Grand Café along the Zwolle Canal. The café culture includes many pavement tables and cannabis is available for personal use. The area has many sports events for those wanting to participate in or watch football, field hockey and basketball. The area hosts several concerts and festivals including the Street Festival, the Rhythm and Blues Festival and the Student Cabaret.

Places to Visit Around Overijssel

Zwolle has the atmosphere of a large village rather than a city of 112,000. The Roman Catholic Church dates back to 1399 and the church tower, which is known as the pepperpot, is one of the tallest in the Netherlands. The moated castle is worth a visit in Almelo along with the 14th chapel which has a timber spire and the splendid tomb of Count van Rechteren. The pretty town of Giethoorn has more canals than streets and is known as the "Venice of the North". Amsterdam is also within easy reach on a day trip from Overijssen where canal boat trips, museums, churches, flower markets and old houses can all be enjoyed.

Weather in Overijssel

Overijssel has a typical temperate climate with warm damp summers and cool winters. Temperatures generally reach 22°C (72°F) in mid summer and drop to an average 3°C (38°F) in the winter. The Zwolle area can be rainy at any time of year, with around 6-7cm of rainfall.

David’s fantastic welcome set the tone for our to-be-remembered stay with our family of nine: friendly and open communication, very knowledgeable of the area, walking us through our home-away-from-home, always available to answer any questions, yet respecting our privacy. In other words: Hospitality with a capital H! The kitchen is the heart of the home. Here it is true! We opened the lovely bottle of wine, part of the welcome gift. “Proost!”, my sister-in-law and I said as our glasses touched. More than you can ask for, and everything you need, is already in place in this well-stocked kitchen. The Coop grocery store is close by and in a short time our groceries were put away. The smaller table is ideal for breakfast – since members of our group drift into the kitchen at different times for, here, you want to sleep in because the beds are so comfortable. The large table is perfect for all of us to gather around during dinner time, and to stay awhile, unhurried, stretching out the mealtime into the early hours of the evening. Diever is a walking town. Step on the bike-and-foot path next to the farmhouse and you walk past the neighbour’s fields, where a black Frisian horse feeds on the lush grass. This path will lead you to a tranquil park, surrounded by homes. You will discover shops to explore, see the church with its steeple at the centre of town, and continue walking along quiet roads. We stopped and picked apples out of a wheel barrow, a present from an unknown giver, which was made into applesauce to accompany our meal. You will discover another park which is home to friendly ducks, turn the corner, pass a café, walk for a few minutes more, and: You are home. Dora S.

We really enjoyed the large garden with trampoline, we set up our own paddling pool which the kids loved as well as enjoyed riding round on their bikes, it was a perfect setting for our BBQs.

Only let down was as it was summer and in the woods, we suffered with biting insects in the whole area. I'm sure at othe times of year, this is not a problem, and would recommend the property as a great base to explore the area.
