Giethoorn cottage

The village of Giethoorn is a really wonderful little town in the Overijssel province. It's about two hours drive from Wassenaar. It is remarkably well-kept; there are no modern buildings and the only way you can get around in the village is by boat or walking. Although a popular tourist attraction (it is known as the "Venice of the North"), it manages to avoid being as kitschy as some of the other "preserved" towns in The Netherlands. This is a typical village house with a beautiful garden as seen from the canal boat.
