where we are staying in Zeeland

‘Zealand was inhabited before the arrival of the Romans. The rich history of this province for every visitor is worth to explore. The province is characterized, as its name suggests, through his relationship with the sea. The eternal fight is reflected in the geography of the province which lies below sea level. A patchwork of polders and dikes, islands that have formed into three large peninsulas and areas traditionally inhabited by the water gained.
Because of the long isolation of Zeeland is much history preserved and reflected in everyday life. Let yourself back to ancient times by the many historical places and monuments in cities like Middelburg , Goes and Zierikzee and feel inspired by the lifestyle of the people in villages, where agricultural past, the Zeeland costumes and the Calvinist establishment remind you with a rich history.’
