About David & Monique Samson
Greetings from Diever! We are David and Monique Samson. In 2004 we decided to relocate our family to peaceful rural Drenthe, one of the most beautiful parts of the Netherlands. David has twenty-five years experience in tourism, having worked for several major airlines, tour operators and business travel agencies. We have advertised our holiday farmhouse rental property with Owners Direct continuously since February 2005. Secure credit card payments accepted via the Owners Direct online payment system.
David & Monique Samson purchased this farmhouse in 2004
Why David & Monique Samson chose Diever
In 2004, here in the small Drenthe village of Diever, we found the perfect location for a holiday farmhouse. The property was originally the site of a very popular B&B, which operated from 1972 until 2004 (at which point the previous owners decided that it was time to retire!) We have discovered the most idyllic spot in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Being situated between two National Parks (including the largest area of wet heathland in continental Europe, at 'Dwingelderveld'), this allows for many recreational activities. Yet, close proximity to the motorway network makes for easy day trips to other parts of the Netherlands and the German border, which is less than an hour away. If we can provide you with any local knowledge to make sure that you have the perfect holiday then please contact us.
What makes this farmhouse unique
Centrally located in Diever village. Within walking distance of a good-sized supermarket, an award-winning bakery, ice-cream parlour, 6 restaurants, chemist, newsagents, many souvenir shops, a bike rental shop and an archaeological museum. We are just a short walk/bike ride away from the nearby 'Drents-Friese' forest. The farmhouse, situated adjacent to fields and a bicycle path running alongside, can comfortably accommodate up to 10 adults, but smaller groups are most welcome. You will be amazed by the many attractions in the area. The outstanding natural beauty of Drenthe is here for all to enjoy - not forgetting the forests, lakes, dunes, hiking & riding trails, parks for the kids, the many museums & places of historic interest, as well as the ease of reaching the surrounding towns and cities.
