Overijssel Holiday Lettings - take a wander off the beaten tourist track this year
Have you already spent your summers relaxing on golden sandy beaches in such popular holiday destinations as Llafranc Holiday Villas on the Costa Brava or Boljevići Villas in Istria and are now looking for some history and culture for your holidays? Overijssel is one of the provinces of the Netherlands and it lies in the central eastern part of the country. Overijssel holiday rentals can be found in many of its towns and cities, such as Hengelo, Almelo, Enschede and Zwolle, which is the capital city. The province is noted for its small rivers and lakes, meaning you can find many Overijssel holiday rentals in the form of waterfront properties.
You can also visit the Tankenberg, which is an 89-metre high hill, or visit the mediaeval village of Ootmarsum when you stay in the Overijssel holiday rentals. Another mediaeval city centre is in Deventer. When you visit this city, travel to the hills of Salland, or if you're looking for forests, head to Twente. If you are looking for fun-filled activities during your holiday, you can look at canoeing and visiting a cheese farm, and the several museums and nature parks as well.
