Sunny, countryside holiday home for wonderful family holidays.
Through the hall you enter a spacious living room (45 m2) and the adjacent kitchen (12 m2). The living room has lots of windows and several doors leading to the garden. Modern interior. In the dining area, a spacious table offers room to the guests. In the livingroom, you will find comfortable arm chairs and an agreeable large sofa.
The upper floor has four bedrooms (two master bedrooms with double beds, and two bedrooms with two single beds). All beds are incredibly comfortable. All bedrooms have a handbasin. The upper bathroom has a large bath (two people will fit with ease), a separate shower, and lavatory. At the ground floor, a second bathroom (with shower) and a separate toilet room can be found. The house has been equipped with a very comfortable “bolidt” epoxy floor screed.
The house is situated in a quiet area, and has a 540 m2 garden that can be closed with a fence. The garden has been provided with a large terrace, a big lawn, dining tables, a lounge set, a swing and a wooden playhouse with slide for kids.
The house, built in 2011, is large and spacious, but still comfortable. While feeling at home, you will experience the feeling of being on a special holiday. The house fulfills high standards for insulation, which makes it a comfortable home not only in the summer, but also in spring, autumn, and winter. In these seasons, the Jacobus wood stove can be used to enjoy the pleasure of a cosy wood fire.
The beaches are nearby. You will reach the sea on foot within a few minutes. You may choose a more quiet family beach, or a part of the beach with some beach restaurants and bars.
The house is situated in an area rich in nature, close to the dunes, with quiet roads and lots of trees. Near the house, opposite the quiet road, is a big lawn which can be used to play on. The center of Renesse can be reached on foot within 15 minutes (quicker by car, or by the bike you can rent in Renesse). Renesse has several shops (including a supermarket). Burgh-Haamstede, 15 minutes by car, also has several shops.
Several nice walks can be made in the area. You can walk along the beach, through the dunes or through the fields. On a rainy day, you might want to try visiting Zierikzee (20 minutes driving), Middelburg or Vlissingen (35 minutes), Antwerpen or Rotterdam (1 hour), or Amsterdam or Utrecht (2 hours).
Several nice restaurants can be found along the beach, in Renesse or Burgh- Haamstede, or at other spots nearby. Adolescents might want to enjoy the night life of Renesse, though the presence of several bars and small clubs in the center of Renesse will not bother you in your sleep. The house is situated in a very quiet area.
This house can only be rented per week.
Renesse is one of the oldest seaside resorts of Zeeland, after Domburg. When tourism started growing rapidly from 1900 onwards, local entrepreneurs responded to that cleverly. On a small scale, arrangements were made for the tourists. One example of this was the opening of the first “verversingstent” (refreshment tent), the predecessor of the present beach pavilions. In the verversingstent people could, for example, hire bathing suits.
Renesse is situated in the north of the island Schouwen-Duiveland. Because of this perfect location, it is still increasingly popular. Today, the village and its surrounding area, offer entertainment for both young and old such as beach pavilions, terraces, shops and night life facilities.
Off the coast, there are broad sandbanks on which you can see the seals sunbathing. The vast North Sea coast is perhaps at its most beautiful near Renesse. The sand beach here is almost 20 kilometres long and hundreds of metres wide near the so-called “Verklikkerduinen”. This dune area is characterised by wet dune valleys with many sorts of colourful and fragrant dune plants. There is a large rabbit population here and the area is also a popular breeding ground for many birds.
Several walking trails in the immediate vicinity of Renesse lead you through the beautiful landscape, through herds of wild Shetland ponies and Scottish Highland cattle. In Westerschouwen this area merges into the biggest forest of Zeeland: the “Domeinen”. Along the same coastal route, you can also find one of the most beautiful mountain bike routes of the country. The area of Renesse is perfect for long cycling trips through a landscape which there are not many left today. The many country roads take you past characteristic villages and offer you safe cycling routes.
Two of the best-known sights in Renesse are the Gothic “Jacobuskerk”, which you can find in the old town centre, and “Slot Moermond” which dates to the 13th century. The castle stands in the middle of the 45-hectares natural area “Landgoed Moermond” and is only used for parties and celebrations. Unfortunately, it cannot be visited.
North of Renesse is the Grevelingenmeer with the Brouwersdam and its many facilities for water sports activities. The Grevelingenmeer, for example, is a special diving hotspot and the Brouwersdam is a popular place for surfing because of its good location. Upon leaving Renesse in the south, you will reach the world-famous Delta Works with the impressive Oosterscheldekering. This storm flood surge connects the island Schouwen-Duiveland with the island Neeltje Jans, where you can visit the family water park of the same name.
Renesse has a large supermarket, a pharmacy, a bakery, a bike rental shop, and a large variety of shops, restaurants and terraces. For young people, there are plenty of entertainment opportunities. On the outskirts of the village is the “Transferium” where you can park your car for free and during peak season you can make use of free public transport from here to the beaches, the town centre and the camping sites.
Also worth a visit are the old Dutch towns Zierikzee, Veere and Middelburg or the other well-known seaside resort: Domburg.
