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.

Temperatures generally reach 22°C (72°F) in mid summer and drop to an average 5°C (41°F) in the winter. The Utrecht area can be rainy at any time of year, with around 4-6cm of rainfall.

Excellent accommodation - the best we have stayed at.

5 of 5
We spent almost a week in apartment 1 - a wonderful and very well-equipped apartment. Our hosts had thought of everything from towels to ample cooking equipment; cutlery; crockery etc - including items suitable for our 3 year old. There was a stair gate too and I found it very child friendly. However, this was child friendly combined with rustic luxury so it felt like a proper grown-up holiday too. No compromises are needed on family holidays here! The garden was spectacular and much used by us. We stayed during something of a heatwave but we never had difficulty sleeping because of the heat and the house was always cool and refreshing. I couldn't find any faults with this accommodation. We were also lucky to have amazing neighbours who arrived just after we did. Our children played together (and also with the infamous kittens!!) and we enjoyed catching up with them in the evenings. The location was excellent - we visited Amsterdam/De Haar castle/Utrecht/Kinderdijk/Efteling and none was over an hour's drive (and many were much shorter - we also used the P&R park and ride for Amsterdam and Utrecht). I would urge anyone thinking of going to do it! P.S. Communication with Gerline and Jochem was fast and easy from booking to staying. Thank you, both, for having us to stay. We will definitely return.

A very attractive chalet, inside was modern and nicely done. Had everything you needed. We went out on bikes every day, a very varied and attractive area.
