Sommelsdijk, Goeree-Overflakkee

Not a moment’s boredom!Not a moment’s boredom!

Watching other families enjoy themselves here shows us how few leave the farm since there is so much to see and do. Here the kids are in their element and don’t have time to get bored! That´s why the parents are having a great time too.

But if you do still want to see something of the local area that the island of Goeree-Overflakkee has to offer then you’ll not be disappointed. Located on the border of South Holland and Zeeland this island is largely regarded as one of the most northerly Zeeland islands, sandwiched between the waters of the North Sea, the Krammer-Volkerak, Grevelingen lake and the Haringvliet nature reserve. Whether you are cycling through the vast polders, strolling through the dunes, sunbathing on the beach or swimming in the waters here – there is something for everyone to enjoy. There are also many charming villages to visit like Middelharnis, Goedereede and Zierikzee .

For a fun day out with the kids we highly recommend a trip to Fauna Park Flakkee. This beautifully landscaped park of 25,000m2 is full of fauna and flora. The park plays host to a wide variety of animals ranging from parakeets to birds of prey, owls and several larger animals such as capybaras, deer and even a white kangaroo.

Kids can play around to their hearts content while discovering various parts of the island and for toddlers there is Ukkie Island where they can dig, scramble and splash around.
