Environment

‘s-Gravenzande is located on the coast of Zuid-Holland, between Hoek van Holland and The Hague. At a walking distance from De Gravin are beautiful wide sandy beaches, where you can fully enjoy the splendour of the sea, beach and dunes.

Besides the beach of ‘s-Gravenzande and its cosy beach pavilions, which is immediately adjacent to the hotel, there are several other spas nearby, including Hoek van Holland, Kijkduin and of course vibrant Scheveningen. These places are easily accessible by bike through the recently built “Noordzeeroute”, a bicycle track passing through the dunes and along the beaches.

There are also many cultural attractions. De Gravin is a great base camp for visits to The Hague, Delft and Rotterdam.

The Hague

Political heart of the Netherlands, royal residence, International Court of Justice, art, coast, architecture, etc.

Here you will find the Mauritshuis with its famous ‘Girl with a pearl earring’ and the city museum with a large collection of Mondriaan, but also the Binnenhof, the royal palaces and the International Court of Justice seated in the Peace Palace. There is something for everyone in this city, less than 10 km away from ‘s-Gravenzande. In between there is ample opportunity to shop, or to settle down on one of the many terraces that The Hague has to offer.

Delft

William of Orange, Prinsenhof, Johannes Vermeer, Delftware…, Delft has a rich history which can, to this day, be admired in many places. Several museums and characteristic Delft locations offer you a glimpse of the past. Think of the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), with William of Orange’s grave and the present royal tomb, the ‘Little Street’ by (Johannes) Vermeer, but also the Oude Markt (Old Market) and the pleasant canals with her small shops, restaurants and cafés.

Rotterdam

It is not without a reason that Rotterdam was awarded 5th place in the Lonely Planet list of must-see global cities. With its beautiful skyline and high-quality architectural buildings, including the impressive Market Hall, Rotterdam is a city with international allure. The Art Hall and the Boijmans van Beuningen museum should not be missing on the art lover’s list. Its location near the Meuse River and the largest port in Europe make Rotterdam ‘the city that never sleeps’. Over the last decades, Rotterdam also made a name for itself in the shopping- and culinary fields.

Children

The surroundings offer a lot to discover with children. Besides playing, swimming and flying a kite on the beach, many different trips are possible, such as Madurodam, Museon, Blijdorp Zoo, Omniversum, Duinrell and Drievliet.
