    We life in original farm in very nice area in the Netherlands which located in the Nationaal Park Weerribben-Wieden. Wanneperveen.

    Weerribben-Wieden is a national park in the Eastern Netherlands. It's less known and smaller than some other parks in the country, but offers nice opportunities for canoeing and boat trips through a generally quiet landscape of water and peat. Much of the landscape here evolved as a result of extensive peat harvest, which created large open water areas. Still, although a protected natural area, this is a cultivated place where nature has fully reclaimed only parts. Expect farm grounds and tractors to be part of the experience, as well as roads and traffic between the villages in and around the park.

    Wanneperveen is a village in the Dutch province of Overijssel. It is located in the municipality of Steenwijkerland, about 4 km west of Meppel. Wanneperveen was a separate municipality until 1973, when it became a part of Brederwiede was merged with nearby Steenwijk to form Steenwijkerland

    Giethoorn is a town in the province of Overijssel, Netherlands with a population of 2,620. It is located in the municipality of Steenwijkerland, about 5 km southwest of Steenwijk. As a popular Dutch tourist destination both within Netherlands and abroad, Giethoorn is often referred to as "Dutch Venice" (Dutch: Hollands Venetië) or the "Venice of the Netherlands".
