Our cozy bungalow is located in the middle of the woods of the Overijssel Vechtdal.

The forest house has a beautiful sauna and a big (wild) garden of more than 1000 m2 where you can rest and enjoy all the flora and fauna.

From the cottage you can walk, cycle and swim for hours. There are beautiful routes and you can easily jump in a canoe or enjoy a terrace in the lively Hanseatic town of Ommen.

Experience it for yourself: it is wonderful coming home to the fireplace here.

The space
You enter through the kitchen equipped with all amenities such as a dishwasher, oven, microwave, hand blender and fridge with freezer compartment. We provide a cup of Nespresso (latte/capp. also possible), some tea and standard herbs. Choose the whistling kettle or the electrical kettle. Since we are quite tall ourselves, we have added a higher working area opposite the old sink.

Jeroen made the long dining table himself. Here you can of course dine together or finish some work behind your computer; we have super fast WiFi thanks to fiber optic.

In the living room you will find a large wood stove, a deep sofa and a sturdy reading chair, television (also Netflix), a Sonos music system, books and games. For more books, games and puzzles you can look at the reception. More on this later!

From the living room you reach our sauna. It gets very hot and thanks to the windows you can look straight into the forest. After your cold shower you can relax in the large garden of more than 1000 m2. We also have a fireplace outside for those who appreciate that. When it rains you can sit under the canopy (also handy to take off your boots after a wet walk)!

In the house you will find two bedrooms:
one with a double king-size bed (180x200) and one with a three-person bunk bed, the lower bed of which is a double (140x200). The bedrooms are darkened with wooden blinds.

Where you’ll be

Giethmen, Overijssel, Netherlands

The most beautiful things of the Netherlands come together in the Vechtdal in Overijssel. Forest, heathland, the rivers (Regge and Vecht), beautiful farms and vast meadows. You can easily cycle and walk everywhere and on the way you often encounter wild animals; from hedgehogs to roe deer. The Lemeler- and Archemerberg (berg means mountain) are also suitable for walks (view!), mountain biking or a horseback ride.

Nice towns such as Dalfsen and Zwolle are only 20 (train) minutes away; well worth it! There are also flea markets in Ommen. If you have a car, a tour of the various flea markets is also recommended. There is also a Ferris wheel in August and often live music.

Our cottage is the perfect base to enjoy the Vechtdal in all its facets. Here you will find a combination of nature, relaxation and (for those who want) luxury, thanks in part to some highly regarded restaurants in the area.

** for the ADRENALINE fanatics **

Do you enjoy amazing experiences? Then call Aeroclub Salland around the corner and go gliding! Or.. do you already feel the adrenaline a little lower to the ground? Then book an afternoon of climbing at Outdoor Ommen or go archery at Rederij Peters.

For the modern treasure hunters among us: try Geocaching! More information about these semi-digital puzzle tours on the park's website.

Hi I'm Sophie!

During the week I teach French at a high school in Amsterdam. In my free time I like to play music, sit behind the sewing machine, or go for a swim.

Recently, I have a vacation home with Ommen with my friend Jeroen. The perfect addition to the city! Here enjoy what we are missing in the city; he is mountain biking and I enjoy horseback riding. After long days of strolling outside, you can relax in the sauna.

If we are not in the Netherlands, we also like to travel on Airbnb. Apart from a single misrepresentation, this was always very pleasing.

We are both friendly, open minded and always in for meeting new people.

See you soon!
