Touring in the Netherlands
The endless vistas of the Netherlands coast, its tranquil islands and easy-going coastal communities allow you to stop, breathe and sample the good things in life, away from the bustle and hum of everyday life. And, when your soul is suitably recharged, it’s time to grab a piece of big city living again: only, in the Netherlands, even its likeable capital operates on a human scale, and you’re free to dial up, or dial down the thrills as you wish.
Holland | Netherlands
Appearances can be deceiving. This pretty, green and pleasant parc is situated in a superb coastal, and rural location - just five kms from terrific beaches. But fun and frolics are never far away. On parc, you’ll find a pool complex with an indoor pool, kids’ pool and waterslides too. If that doesn’t keep the little ones occupied, try the great play area. More tranquil options include fishing the well-stocked lake or hiring bikes to explore the coastal trails: and head to those terrific beaches to fly a kite, or to kite surf!
Hankering for big city action? Amsterdam is just 40kms away: an easy half hour drive. Here you’re spoiled for choice, with the city’s array of world-class art, quirky designer stores and canal-side dining. For a small country, the Netherland’s friendly capital packs quite the punch. You may find yourself returning for another day’s adventure.
Camping De Twee Bruggen ★★★★★
Gelderland | Netherlands
For a complete change of pace, head just two and a half hours deep into the Netherland’s interior to stay at parc number two: De Twee Bruggen, in Gelderland. A refreshingly peaceful region packed with natural treasures to explore, Gelderland will awaken your senses. Wildlife flourishes in De Hoge Veluwe National Park, and the Achterhoek area is The Netherlands’ answer to the Loire, with pretty villages and fairytale castles: more than you’d ever have thought you’d find in this surprising country.
Your parc is a real outdoor lover’s paradise, with huge pitches and plenty of space to stretch out and relax. With indoor and outdoor pools and four waterslides, kids will be in their element. And if you love cycling through forests, picnicking by the side of a lake, or visiting canal-laced villages, you will be too. Try the Netherlands for your next holiday: we have a feeling you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
