Rent a holiday home in historic Drenthe

Located near the German border, Drenthe comes from the word 'thrija-hantja', which means 'three lands'. It was here that artifacts from the Wolstonian Stage, dating back 150,000 years, were discovered. The Megalithic boulder tombs of Hondsrug Ridge were constructed by prehistoric people. Today a sparsely populated agricultural region, until the Bronze Age Drenthe was the most densely populated area of the Netherlands. You can visit the Borger Hunebed Centre for information on the 'hunnebeden', 5000 year old graves built with stones that weigh up to 40 tons each, while staying in a holiday rental nearby.
