All about the Bed & Breakfast
Bed & Breakfast de Bolle combines luxury with a warm welcome and is located in the middle of the beautiful, old village Beesd, in the West Betuweon on the river Linge. This peaceful and picturesque village nestles in the countryside amongst fruit orchards, history, culture and natural monuments and is almost totally encircled by the river Linge. Beesd has a station which is just outside the village (2.5 Km); you can also reach the village via the old country estate, the Heerlijkheid Marienwaerdt, either on foot or by bicycle. If you looking for easily accessible accommodation where all your requirements can be catered for, then you have found the right address! This is the perfect location from which to enjoy activities such as golf, walking and cycling. On the Linge you can canoe, sail or make a trip on a cruise boat. You also visit the Marienwaerdt country estate where there is both a Pancake restaurant and a Brasserie.

There is also the unusual Owl Centre and the Zoo "de Paay" which are next to the Linge just outside Beesd. The B&B is in the centre of the old village, but is still very peaceful: its position is ideal if you want a quiet spot to read or to write. The accommodation is also ideal if you need to use a wheel chair or a walking frame. You will receive personal attention and I will ensure that you enjoy an unforgettable stay at Bed & Breakfast de Bolle in the town where I was born and grew up.
The accommodation is both luxurious and welcoming, with a separate entrance and level floors and which are wheelchair friendly, and various facilities to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay.
