Self-catering holiday rentals in Overijssel for your home stay

A trip to the Overijssel region of Holland for a self-catering holiday takes you away from the crowds and into the real heart of this fascinating country, the true Holland. You'll find journeys from your holiday rentals to be filled with unexpected adventures, and many of them will be outdoor activities. This is a place dominated by the natural beauty of the River Ijssel, and the historical cities that lie along it. Like so much of Holland, the region of Overijssel is relatively flat, and of course the Dutch are famous for their love of cycling. So why not rent bicycles for your vacations in Overijssel and cycle along the many safe cycle paths? This is an ideal family activity for a short break during the school holidays. Along the river, you'll find one of Holland's oldest cities, Deventer. Once you arrive there, take a climb up the medieval church tower and you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of a beautiful city. Wonder around the streets and gain an idea of why the Dutch rate this city so highly. The children will not be able to resist a visit to Deventer's toy museum. This is very much a hands-on experience that will easily take up a few hours. Adults will want to take the time to visit the local museum of history, and emerge with a greater understanding of this fascinating place. Afterwards, there is something special to look forward to. It's a local speciality for both adults and children: the making of gingerbread, something they've perfected here over many generations. The locals are very proud of this tradition, so why not relax with a cup of coffee or two to enjoy it. And perhaps pack some in a backpack to take with you as you cycle home to your holiday rental, for a true, traditional taste of this region. The city of Zwolle is another welcoming place. Zwolle is the capital of Overijssel, with its own important history. Here the markets are almost festivals in themselves and are held every Friday and Saturday next to St Michael's Church. Afterwards, bags full, you'll just want to relax in one of the many outdoor cafes and watch the world go by. Also on the River Ijssel, you'll find the city of Kampen. This city is much smaller, but Kampen is packed with character, history and interest. You'll find ancient monuments and the remains of the ancient city walls. Local walking tours are available to give you the full background of life here. During the summer months in Kampen, there's a series of festivals. One celebrates local folk tales, there's also the Full Colour festival each June with performances and activities for all the family and another perfect activity for families is a comic festival which is held each August.

Holiday lettings in Overijssel for your short break

The choices of holiday rentals in Overijssel for your self-catering trip are many and varied. All are of a high quality to offer a trip you will never forget. Overijssel is in the beautiful Dutch countryside, so we can offer you a large selection of characterful farmhouses to rent for your family holidays. You will immediately feel at home. This is a way to truly become a local in Overijssel. Some of these holiday rentals are on working farms, or perhaps near a children's farm, an ideal family rental for your self-catering trip to Overijssel. For larger groups, there are rentals which can sleep several dozen. These could be perfect for a big family get-together in this picturesque region. Also available are a large selection of rental houses, ideal for families or groups. Some of these vacation rentals have the idyllic location of being on the River Ijssel itself, so you can wake up with the sound of water on your doorstep. Perhaps you'll take a few days just relaxing and enjoying the surroundings. Just about all the rental houses we offer are surrounded by natural attractions, perfect outdoor activities during the school holidays. Many are typically Dutch in style, with the good taste that this nation has perfected. There are many local markets to take advantage of for your evening meals. For smaller groups, your preference might be one of the tastefully-appointed apartments for your holiday rental, during bank holidays, perhaps. All these of these vacation rentals will offer you the warmest of welcomes for your stay in Overijssel.

The best time to enjoy Overijssel

Summers in Overijssel are warm and mild, ideal for outdoor activities from your holiday rentals. You'll be surprised at how easy it is to forget about owning a car, as you cycle just about everywhere in the pleasant weather. A home stay, of course, will bring you to the heart of real Dutch hospitality. In the spring, the countryside along the River Ijssel is just coming alive, as your hosts will be delighted to point out to you. This is a country where just about everyone speaks perfect English, and will be happy to teach you a little Dutch as well. In the autumn, throughout Overijssel, theatres celebrate the beginning of the new theatrical season, and you can take advantage of bargain prices. So September is an ideal time to visit for those interested in culture. For group activities from your holiday rental, you might prefer to choose musical events. On the other hand, a group visit to the theatre, even if you don't fully understand the language, will make for a great evening out. You will make new friends with locals who can explain what happened onstage over a beer or two afterwards. For a characterful short break, try one of the winter months. There's a Dickens Festival in Deventer, a famous Christmas festival in Kampen and, in the city of Zwolle, an ice sculpture festival that's famous throughout Holland. With Owners Direct, you can be sure that your booking for a short break in Overijssel is safe and secure.
