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.

Well positioned. We were very lucky because they allowed us to arrive on Easter Sunday, which I was very nervous about. Most of the correspondence happened in German, so Google Translate was my friend. I think there was a bit of confusion, but only because of language differences! There is building work going on in the Estate, but that is only temporary and didn't detract from our holiday. The only other thing I would say, is that the stairs are unbelievably steep!... we have an 18month old, and we had to keep stopping her from going up and down. I think a stair-gate would be helpful for people with very young children. People with mobility problems would also be unable to climb the stairs, but there is a ground-floor bedroom that is accessible. All in all though, a great holiday, would thoroughly recommend.

Well maintained and cared for, this property makes an ideal retreat for a large group or family. Karin and Richard were always on hand to help with questions and extra requirements. Karin even arranged the cycles for all 9 of us. We were 9 and found it was ample for our space needs. We loved the secret garden spaces with paths and pond, hammocks and trampoline and wildlife. We ate outside under the canopy almost every day. Secluded but close enough to town and facilities. Cycle routes galore meant we were always out and about discovering the delightful Veluwe region. Highly recommended.

Modern kitchen with all appliances, like dish washer, micro wave oven, etc. Led TV and free Wi-Fi and standard Chromecast, so we used our Netflix account to enjoy some new movies. Nice gesture from owner was a 10% discount voucher for restaurant Smaakvol in Holten. We had a fantastic dinner and a great bottle of wine there. The pitoresque village of Holten is close by. We whole heartily recommend Huis van Oranje to other guests.
