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.

Travel to Overijssel

The nearest airport to your Overijssel holiday rental is Schipol (AMS) Airport which is in the capital city of Amsterdam. Rotterdam (RTM) Airport also has regular flights from all over Europe.

It is a very comfortable cottage in a quiet rural area, with the old city of Deventer nearby. Its a perfect combination of a peaceful stay with the exciting possibilities of the east Netherands.

Roomy home with a beautiful garden

5 of 5
We stayed in the villa for 8 nights and it was a very comfortable place with lots of room even for 8 adults. We played in the yard and used it to relax. The facilitates were nice and the nearby waterfall was a great addition. It was also very close to national parks and the open air museum and zoo in Arnhem.
