The review below was published by Mrs Local Hideways, check out her website for other beautiful authentic and unique places to stay.

Beautifully situated in Zeeland, the most south-western part of Holland, you will find this Dutch “chambres et tables d’hôtes” (or B&B), lovingly called “France-North” by its sympathetic and determined owners Lille and Edith.

They turned an old Zeeland farmstead into their very own piece of France in order to have that ultimate holiday feeling even when at home. Mrs. Local Hideaways has very fond memories of this Hideaway, as this was the place where she spent an entire weekend celebrating her fortieth birthday with her closest friends!

The plot is over 2 square miles large and consists of the farmstead, an open carriage house and several annexes. The beautifully refurbished barn was fitted with underfloor heating and two wonderful studio apartments were built in it. Both have en suite bathrooms, small kitchens, a private terrace and television and internet facilities. A small double room was also added.

The barn’s centrepiece is a fantastic, spacious and high-ceilinged common room of some 860 square feet. This is a wonderful place for getting together for some quality time or quietly reading a book in front of the cosy crackling fire. For a lovely breakfast, you can sit down at the 13 ft long table. As a guest, you are also free to use the fully equipped kitchen in the open area: things can’t get more homey than this…unless of course the owners’ dogs, Zwaan and Rosa, decide to pay you a visit!

By the way, the spacious back garden also provides several sleeping facilities. For instance, there is a really cool tree house, specially designed by a Dutch artist, and a cosy garden room for two. More into retro camping? They also have a vintage caravan. If the weather is nice, the garden or open carriage house are lovely places to stay. And if it turns a bit chilly, you can light the wood-burning stove or plunge into the outside hot tub: The Dutch Tub.

The surroundings are also worth a visit. The beach, where Lille and Edith have their own beach cabin, complete with deck chairs, is less than a mile away. And the countryside is stunning, with its deer, birds of prey and pheasants. Or, if you prefer visiting a city, Vlissingen and Middelburg are just around the corner.

In short: this Hideaway is an absolute must….One that gives the Zeeland landscape a warm and cosy French touch!
