Den Oever / Wieringen
Wieringen once was an island. The villages are different. The sloping landscape is different. The church is the oldest church in the Netherlands. Small twisting trails are decorated by hawthorns. Monumental farms and amiable dike houses characterize the area. A small authentic piece of the Netherlands going about its ways for hundreds of years. The holiday houses are situated at the internationally protected Wierdijk which is eight kilometres long and build out of seaweed. Be assured, the dike has protected the area for the last 400 years. You can still feel, taste and see that island of elapsed times where every visitor is being welcomed as a special guest, not as a stranger. The area includes waters which are rich in fish. These waters can also be found all around the beautiful Robbenoord forest. The forest can be reached within a 5 minute cycling trip from the holiday houses. Several locations can be visited within the near area of the holiday home; such as the biggest shrimp supply dock in Europe and the Afsluitdijk. The Afsluitdijk is a hydraulic engineering masterpiece and is known in the world as one of the biggest tourist attractions in the Netherlands. The holiday houses are located at the top of that internationally famous dike, less than a 50 minute drive away from Amsterdam. See more of the environment through the links.
