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.

The owners were very nice and the booking process was very easy. The house is well equipped and the garden is very pretty. I couldn’t find an iron although there is an ironing board so that was a pity. There was a bit of confusion I think due to the owners being german and me not understanding german! It says in the details of the house on homeaway that linens and towels are provided, however when we arrived there was no bedding or towels – I thought that the beds would be made up on our arrival. The arrival time is stated as 4pm, we arrived just after 5pm and the reception was closed so you do need to arrive before 5pm. Luckily we were able to rent bedding and towels, although unfortunately this was an expense that we were not expecting (about 50 euros :0( ). It also states that there is one bicycle available but this is not the case and unfortunately all of the hire bikes had already been rented out so this was a disappointment. You have to pay 12 euros to take your car into the park and there is an extra charge for the swimming pool. Also there were no loo rolls, so glad we had some with us! The previous occupants had left the BBQ filthy so we couldn’t use it!

The town is a delight with many good restaurants and historic sites. The accommodation is clean and modern, yet retaining the old character of this centrally located home. Janine was a very helpful host.

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
