David could not have been more helpful. Absolutely fantastic location for cycling, walking, and boating at Giethorn. The house was well equipped and clean. The master bedroom is on the ground floor. Close to a fabulous supermarket, gift shops and restaurants. Everyone cycles in Holland so the pace of life is very relaxed. Would love to live there as everything...

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.
