The Details...

De Verrekijer is a picture-perfect windmill set in the magical, natural landscapes of Gelderland, Holland. Surrounded by colourful, wild meadows and enchanting forests, it has a peaceful spot in a majestic backdrop. Discover rolling fields and secluded country lanes, along with charming villages hidden in open plains.

The iconic, Dutch windmill sits on a lush, grassy knoll and was once a working mill turning locally grown corn. Now carefully restored to blend old with new, it is a characterful home with captivating views. Peer out between its ancient sails across the flourishing woodland glades, spotting the striking castles telling their story along the way. Marvel at its impressive blades or at its curved, stone walls, before stepping onto the cobbled path and through its quaint wooden door.

Inside, its original features have been left beautifully untouched and include large, timber beams and pretty, arched windows. Thick mottled walls are uneven to touch and are joined by traditional tiled floors and rustic boards. Winding staircases will lead you up to the rafters, revealing hidden nooks and crannies and large, open spaces.
On the ground floor you’ll find an industrial-style kitchen, complete with stainless steel worktops and a modern gas cooker. Dine at the rustic table or head up to the family living area, curling up on the leather sofas and talking long into the evening.

When it’s time to retire, there are six double/twin bedrooms which provide a surprising amount of space for up to 12 people. Choose the spacious master room or the chic family suite or the bijoux double with its canopied mattress. A cosy games room/study also provides extra space for the kids and has a PC, games table and funky seating.

The windmill is settled in the tranquil village of Bergharen and is surrounded by the protected landscapes of Holland’s Gelders region. Take a walk through the countryside and soak up the rich, local culture or head out for the day to explore the local towns and villages. Explore the ancient city of Grave or the historic Floris Castle or the meandering waters of the Rivierenland channels. The Roman city of Nijmegen is also well worth a visit and has a stunning location alongside the Waal River.
