A lakeside vacation

Many wonderful lakeside vacation homes await for a fantastic, varied holiday, especially with children. Grab yourself a boat, surfboard, canoe or rubber dinghy and make your way to Holland! Typical lakeside scenery can be found in Friesland. However, all other regions of the Netherlands have fantastic lakes and estuaries too - and your dream vacation home is already there, waiting for you.

Sea or lake?

Instead of a lake, people often refer to “plassen”.  The Loosdrecht and Vinkeveense Plassen [lakes] near Utrecht are some of the most beautiful lake regions in Holland and many wealthy Dutch people have built weekend homes there, directly on the lake. But there are also unique vacation homes there for tourists, directly on the lake, often with their own moorings.
