Welcome to a rich haven of peace in Holland's metropolitan area
Meet us at Gooi & Vecht
Within a stone’s throw of the cities of Amsterdam, Utrecht and Almere, the Gooi & Vecht area allows you to enjoy in all peace and quiet the many varied touristic attractions. This area, the Dutch television network-capital of Hilversum being it’s lively center, truly is a rich oasis of quiet, space, nature, unique waters and historical highlights. And last but not least: very, very good restaurants and shopping possibilities. No wonder this area is also known as Amsterdam’s beautiful backyard. In this area, and within a short distance from each other, you’ll find the river Vecht, which is indisputably Holland’s most beautiful river, the lively Loosdrecht Lakes in the municipality of Wijdemeren, the scenic Naarder Lake, the stately old estates in ’s-Graveland and the Gooi Nature Reserve’s extensive heathlands and forests. Historical villages such as Laren, Muiderberg and Blaricum are absolutely worth a visit. And don’t miss out on strongholds and fortified towns like Naarden, Muiden, Bussum and Weesp, some of which are part of Unesco’s World Heritage. Not to forget the area’s characteristic old harbour of Huizen. Everywhere you go you will find the finest little shops, the most enjoyable terraces and the very best restaurants. Come and stay with us for a couple of days, for even staying with us is an adventure in itself! There is a choice of bed & breakfasts, and of course the area boasts a number of luxurious hotels of very good report.
