The villa was very clean, modern and spacious, it was well equipped, very comfortable and it's position on the lake is fantastic. We stayed in late October and did not make use of the private jetty, but staying in summer and taking advantage of the position of the villa for boating and water sports would be amazing. Booking was clear and simple, contact with the owner very easy and quick, when we arrived we collected the key from reception, and the staff were friendly and helpful. On leaving, the villa was checked quickly and our deposit returned immediately. The villa was exactly as expected and as described on the website. The area is beautiful, with huge expanses of open water, miles of cycle paths, incredible wild life and many wonderful places to visit in easy reach. We particularly enjoyed Harlingen and Bolsward, both within half an hour of De Potten, and Sneek is a very pleasant small city close by. We took a longer trip to Amsterdam and used the Ajax Stadium P&R which took about 80 minutes to drive. I would thoroughly recommend the villa and the area, and we would certainly consider returning.
