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

Utrecht is the small but densely populated region in the centre of the Netherlands mainland. It is centred around the old city of Utrecht which was established by the Romans in 47AD and is one of the oldest towns in the Netherlands. It has several bustling cities as well as picturesque villages, castles and residences to enjoy from a self-catering holiday base in this area.

Things to Do in Utrecht

The beautiful countryside around the well-located Utrecht holiday rentals is ideal for walking and cycling. Horseback riding and canal boat trips are also a popular way to enjoy the countryside whilst Utrecht is a pleasant city for sightseeing. As with most places in the Netherlands, sampling the local cheeses is a real pleasure, especially the mature Edam and Gouda cheeses along with local Dutch favourites.

Places to Visit Around Utrecht

The main city of Utrecht has an old center with a Medieval cathedral tower which dominates the skyline and several canals. There is also the Centraal Museum and a Museum of Modern Design, now called the Rietveld-Schroder-Huis Museum with many design exhibits. The smaller towns of Loenen, Wijk bij Duurstede and Amerongen are all well worth spending time visiting. There are several old castles around your Utrecht holiday rentals including the Kasteel Loenersloot in Loenen, Slot Zuylen and the well-known neo-Gothic architecture Kasteel De Haar. The city of Amersfoort has a well-preserved historic centre with small shops and markets which give a taste of provincial life in the Utrecht region.

It was quiet with a pleasant outlook. It's position geographically was ideal for us to visit the places we wanted to go to, a bonus is that the main line station at Breukelen is only a 20 minute drive away. Definitely a place we would consider visiting again.

But best of all was Kristien the owner/hostess of the property! She is very bright, kind, and helpful. Her personality is such that she genuinely enjoys helping make your stay wonderful with all the help and information you may need. Not only would I come back and stay-I already am booked to return in December!!! And looking forward to it. Thanks Kristien!

De Duif was very warm and comfortable and had everything we needed and the log burner had the house warm in a few minutes. A perfect base to go out exploring the local countryside on our tandem cycle - Cycling is very good here. A superb holiday location, we couldn't have wished for better. Jeremy and Jan
