For a holiday centred around one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, head to the Netherlands and stay in Ijsselmeer holiday cottages. Lake Ijssel, or Ijsselmeer, is an artificial lake created in the heart of the Netherlands and the biggest lake in Western Europe. It is a freshwater lake replenished mostly by the water from a branch of the Rhine. There are many Ijsselmeer holiday rentals in the vicinity of the lake that can make your holiday a memorable one. The history of the Ijsselmeer dates back to 1932 when the Zuiderzee, an inland sea, was closed off by the construction of the Afsluitdjik, a dam that led to the land reclamation. While staying in the Ijsselmeer holiday rentals, you can enjoy plenty of recreational activities on the lake and catch a glimpse of the traditional sailing boats that float on the lake.
