Delft holiday apartments
Those who want to experience a more traditional Dutch city will love having a holiday apartment Delft, a charming smaller city sandwiched between Rotterdam and The Hague, in the west of the Netherlands. The city centre's architecture and canal system and is reminiscent of Amsterdam, but utterly unspoilt, and compact enough to explore on foot from your Delft holiday rental. That said, why not embrace the Dutch lifestyle and rent a bicycle? The green space east of the city, the Delftse Hout, makes for a great cycling day out, especially in spring and summer.
Delft is most famous for its pottery, Delftware, and for being the hometown of Johannes Vermeer, Dutch Golden Age painter whose best known work is The Girl With The Pearl Earring. Explore Delft's ceramics heritage on a walking tour, or head to the Royal Delft factory and museum, and get familiar with the life and works of Vermeer at the Vermeer Centre. In the pedestrianised city centre you'll find the Oude Kerk (old church) and Nieuwe Kerk (new church) as well as the Prinsenhof Museum and the beautiful Stadthuis, or city hall. Climb the tower of the Nieuwe Kerk for fantastic views across the city, and even The Hague and Rotterdam. There's so much to see and do when you have a Delft holiday rental!
