This charming holiday house is a place to come home to! In a quiet setting, with a private terrace on the water. The property is partly fenced off, and offers direct access to the 'Krekengebied', a creek and lake area that emerged from the flood disaster in 1953 and is now a nature preserve. The hiking trail is beautiful and quiet, and offers great views of the Oosterschelde. The area is home to all sorts of animals. At high tide, the land between the Oosterschelde and the largest lake offers birds a safe and dry location, and thus the area is popular with bird watchers.
The house has three bedrooms (double bed 2x80, queensize 140 and two separate beds plus a sofa bed), a comfortable living and dining room, and a fully equipped kitchen (hob, microwave, oven, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, waterboiler, coffeemaker and a Nespresso machine). Bedlinnen and towels can be made available for a small fee. There garden offers great privacy, and two terraces to enjoy the sun (or shadow).
Ouwerkerk is also home to the Watersnood Museum, dedicated to the great flood of 1953 and located in the caissons that were used to close the last hole in the dike that the flood had caused.
Visit the pitturesque nearby town of Zierikzee, with plenty of shopping opportunities and restaurants. The salt-water Oosterschelde is nearby and easily reached via a nature preserve directly accessible from the park. Go there at low tide to collect oysters, or simply to enjoy the scenery. Also in close proximity is the (sandy) beach of Ouwerkerk, a good and safe spot for families with young children. The North Sea beaches of Burgh-Haamstede are only a 20-mins drive away.
There are several nice golf courses in the area, as well as charming historic towns such as Schuddebeurs and Dreischor. Veere, Middelburg and Domburg are also worth a visit. For more shopping and nightlife options, Rotterdam, Breda and Antwerp are all approximately an hour's drive away.
