Do you want to rent or buy a chalet for a great holiday in Friesland? At the recreationpark "de Holle Poarte" in Makkum we mediate in the rental and sales of chalets. These chalets are from private owners so there is a varied selection of chalets near water but also chalets with plenty of privacy. We cooperate with "de Holle Poarte" allowing the processing of your booking to go smoothly.
Makkum is located on the Frisian IJsselmeer coast, municipality Súdwest-Friesland. The Frisian IJsselmeer coast lies between the ports of Harlingen and Lemmer. This beautiful setting is called the Southwest corner, in Frisian it is called "Sûdwesthoek". This region contains many Frisian towns like Harlingen, Leeuwarden, Sneek, Workum, Hindeloopen and Stavoren, in which there is much to see. From Makkum you have a perfect starting point to visit all these beautiful places. The woods in Rijs, municipality Gaasterland are half an hour away by car. There are many cycling routes so you can also make beautiful bike trips in the area.
Makkum is located on the border of fresh and salt water and is a historic fishing village with many tourist attractions and a popular destination for many boaters and the Brown Fleet (old sailing ships).
From Harlingen you can take a boat trip on the Wadden Sea to the Frisian Islands Vlieland and Terschelling.
If you prefer to remain in Makkum during your holiday, you will not get bored here! Sunbathing, swimming and surfing is possible on the lively IJsselmeer beach with promenade. The IJsselmeer here is very shallow, so safe for children.
