About the neighbourhood
Located at the south-westerly tip of the province of Drenthe (approx. 2 hours east of Amsterdam), is renowned for the open-air productions of Shakespeare which have been re-enacted in its forest amphitheatre every summer since 1946. In the village there is a grocery store, an award-winning bakery, a good variety of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and a bank. There is a market, encircling the 14th century church, selling everything from clothes to local products – held in Diever every Monday throughout the Summer months. There is also a Dutch National Tourist office in Diever with a wealth of information on the surrounding area. The farmhouse is just a 10-minute walk away from one of the largest areas of natural beauty in the Netherlands!
