  • A nice change from other rental properties we have stayed at.

    "We booked this trip quite late and the owner was very helpful in accomodating us. They offered lots of ideas of things to do in the area even though it was not yet the high season. The house itself is well located in the village. What is even better is that is has great unobstructed views from every room. (We're here now actually!) The design and decor were very nice and contemporary. Not to heavy and Provencal. If you are looking for an old traditional house this place is not for you. This house looks very old from the outside but is beautifully designed and modern on the inside. My favourite part was the massive glass wall that spans the entire height of the house at the rear giving on to the spacious courtyard. I could recommend this house for families as there is plenty of space for kids to run around in safely. The only weakness i can mention is that it does not have AC, but then few houses in Provence seem to. We've found that shutting the shutters does the same job and keeps the rooms cool. Overall we had a very nice stay and have already booked another visit for this Autumn and next spring. Well done! (now I want to try your travel company business too!)"

  • Beautiful House in a Tranquil Yet Convenient Location

    "Our family of four just returned from a fantastic two weeks at this beautiful villa! This was our first trip to Italy and we could not have wished for a more perfect place to stay. We were warmly welcomed by Gabriela, Adolfo and their charming and helpful daughter Valentina. They greeted us with a delicious cake and nice bottle of wine from a local vineyard. Gabriella and Valentina gave us a tour of the house and property, making sure that we had everything that we needed. Adolfo gave us helpful information on where to find good local restaurants and food stores. It was very nice to meet such a kind and friendly family. Thank you for an unforgettable vacation!!! The Villa itself was even more beautiful than the photos... thanks to the sounds of church bells, chirping birds and the smell of lavender and rosemary. The views from inside and outside the house are truly breathtaking! We felt like we were in a movie! The interior of the villa is cozy, clean and beautifully decorated. The beds were very comfortable with fresh quality linens. The bathrooms and kitchen were perfect. The swimming pool was great after a long day of sight seeing! The local shop and vineyard owners were very kind and had everything that we needed. (Maria, who owns the local vineyard produces delicious wine & olive oil) Some of our favorite evenings were spent sitting on the patio, admiring the olive trees, over a glass of wine, cheese, bread and olive oil. The private location is conveniently located close to Lucca, Viareggio beaches, Cinque Terre, Pisa, Voltera, & Florence. If you are ambitious you can even take a day trip to Rome via speed train from Florence. Thank you also to Mrs. Sonia who made booking this house very pleasant and easy. We hope that we will be able to visit again in the near future!!!"

Netherlands Travel Tips

Finding Your Way to the Netherlands

The main travel hub in the Netherlands is Amsterdam. Schipol Airport, which is located on the city outskirts, is the fourth busiest airport in Europe. The airport hosts both domestic and international flights from Europe and many other parts of the world. There are many direct flights to Amsterdam from the major cities in North America. The airport has good rail and road links to Amsterdam and the surrounding communities so getting to your travel destination is easy. Rail is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to tour the Netherlands. Almost every town and city has a railway station and frequent train schedules. In the cities, there are also many local metro trains and buses that provide public transportation. If you enjoy being active on your vacation, one of the best ways to explore is by bicycle. The Netherlands is one of the most bicycle-friendly destinations with marked cycle paths and detailed route maps for getting around. Because the landscape is relatively flat, it is is not strenuous work and you can cover quite a lot of mileage in a day.

Visitors to Netherlands Accommodation

The Netherlands is a destination that has a wealth of cultural attractions. Anyone who has an interest in European history and culture will have great fun exploring the many historical sites and museums. If you enjoy walking and cycling, the Netherlands is the ideal destination for you to explore independently. If you decide you have had enough exercise for the day but have still not reached your destination, you can simply hop on a bus or train to travel the remaining distance to your destination.

Those with an interest in art will want to spend some time in Amsterdam where famous painters like Rembrant lived. The Netherlands is considered a very modern society where there is much tolerance for all different types of people. Many activities that are illegal in many other parts of the world are practiced openly. If you are a more conservative type of person, be aware of where you are exploring so you don't find yourself getting offended.

Netherlands Travel Attractions

Most travelers spend their time in the four main cities, namely Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. These cities are the most populated parts of the Netherlands and contain many of the major cultural and historical attractions. Amsterdam is a city filled with beautiful architecture, interesting museums, scenic canals and many coffee shops. It is the main travel destination within the Netherlands. The Hague is a historical city and the residence of the Dutch Royal family. It is also home to the international judiciary. Utrecht has a beautiful historic center and several interesting museums. Rotterdam is the most modern of the Dutch cities and known for its vibrant nightlife.

Favorite Time of Year to Visit the Netherlands

The Netherlands is located in the northwestern part of Central Europe. It has a relatively temperate climate owing to its flat landscape and proximity to the North Sea. Winters are cold and wet although rainfall occurs throughout the year. The summer days are generally long and warm, and ideal for touring and exploring. Accordingly, summer is the peak travel season. June and July are the busiest months of the year but the weather is typically warm from May through September. The landscape is green and interspersed with orchards, fields of flowers and quaint towns. If you are traveling to the Netherlands just for the culture and history, you can choose your travel season. While the weather may not be ideal, most museums remain open all throughout the year.
