Holland, a country renowned for having unbelievably flat terrain, windmills and tulips at every turn, traditional images of canals, and its new face as a modern European nation is a must see for the traveler headed to Europe.
Holland is a country with seemingly unlimited opportunities to explore the culture and dive into magnificent beauty in the form of rolling landscapes and perfect backdrops. From the busy pace of life in the streets of Amsterdam to the stunning medieval towns like Utrecht and Delft, Holland is a place for all.
So why a Villa?
A villa usually offers much more than your average hotel. A villa usually comes equipped with a living room, dining room, kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms and sometimes balconies. Some even come lawns, private pools and even tennis courts.
Because you have a full kitchen, you can save quite a bit of money by cooking instead of eating out. This also gives you ample reason to visit the local markets which is a fantastic experience when visiting places like Holland.
Also, a villa is normally rented in one week blocks so you can hang the hat and relax without the worries and concerns that can come with hotel rooms. Simply unpack your bags and start feeling and living the experience of a true cultural journey.
Villas can be a little more expensive, but if you time it right they can also be quite a bit cheaper. Don't forget to calculate in the money you will save by not having to eat out as much and in a place like Holland the savings will be very noticeable.
As far as location is concerned, it doesn't get much better.
Take Amsterdam for example; some consider Amsterdam to be one of the most visually impressive capitals in the world. It is a place where you can also journey through centuries of history aboard a canal boat or explore the array of excellent museums and enjoy breathtaking sunsets. The Netherlands has far more than just its capital though, with a slew of impressive cities including Arnhem, The Hague and Rotterdam.
Unpack your bags, take a shower, and explore. You've got all week in your Holland vacation villa!
Go ahead, take the plunge and give a villa a try at your next vacation destination. You won't be let down.
