Let's Go Dutch For A Change

a beach in hollandWe’ve been to Spain and loved it.

We’ve partied hard on the Venetian Riviera and enjoyed the medieval riches of Italy’s finest cities. We’ve eaten the finest foods France has to offer.

Time for a change?

What about Holland? That lovely European country of flatlands, incredible beers, breathtaking landscapes and art.

What about a beach holiday in Holland?

Not something many of us have considered, is it? Holland is about Amsterdam or nothing for many of us.

But we’re truly missing out. Beach holidays in Holland have a different slant, an edge you can’t achieve on the Costas, the Italian rivieras or French seaside resorts.

Stray beyond the big cities and there’s some incredibly unique European beauty to be had outside of the famously welcoming Dutch restaurants and cafes.

Outside of Amsterdam, it is places like Wassenaar that best illustrate what Holland is really about.

Encircled by the sandiest of dunes, incredible fantasy forests and rolling green countryside, Wassenaar lies spitting distance inland from the country’s renowned west coast, famous for its huge award-winning beach – it’s a bespoke family holiday waiting to happen.

Fortunately for you good folk, Al Fresco Holidays have a fantastic holiday parc right in the heart of Wassenaar.

Duinrell Resort is jaw-droppingly good.

The four-star parc features one of the best water slides in Europe, and its pool has been voted one of the top 20 swimming pools in the world.

Get wet and enjoy some seriously fun escapades on the lazy river, wave pool or paddling pool. There’s splashing fun to be had for all ages.

Got kids? Looking for an alternative to regular trips to France, Spain and Italy for a summer break? Duinrell is an absolute no-brainer.

If the pools don’t grab you then the roller coasters and shows are always popular at Duinrell, and if it’s a more leisurely pace you’re after try the nearby beach or forest to wind down after all the excitement.

A beach. In Holland.

If you’ve not experienced it before, it really is time to go Dutch.
