Gastronomic stay on the prettiest river

De Nederlanden Boutique Hotel

This small boutique hotel is located in a historical building from 1680, on the banks of the river Vecht. Located in Vreeland, a small idyllic town centrally located between Amsterdam and Utrecht. Spend the night in one of the 11 minimalist designed rooms and suites that are inspired by Scandinavian and Japanese style. In the restaurant you can enjoy culinary creations at Michelin star level by Wilco Berends, meanwhile his wife Caroline Berends, who has been awarded ‘Hostess of the Year’ by Gault&Millau, runs the hotel and restaurant. In the summer we recommend to take a dip in the river Vecht, use the swimming ladder provided by De Nederlanden to easily get in and out of the water.

"A beautiful view from a stately building. But as soon as the exceptional dishes by chef Wilco Berends appear on the table, all attention is diverted from the ambiance. Berends cooks classically with global ingredients. All dishes are technically very well executed. Moreover, we enjoy beautiful and powerful flavours."

Gault&Millau 17/20

"There is a typical Dutch atmosphere in this former hostelry. This building full of character combines its charming past with contemporary austerity. The view of the Vecht and the drawbridge is truly enjoyable. Wilco Berends loves his land. You can tell from the menu."
