The chalet is located near to the border of The Netherlands at the cross of A12 highway and A3 Autobahn. In a rustic scenery with a free view on the old mill of Elten, the woods and a nearby ranch it feels like being away from the crowded cities, although they are pretty close: Arnhem (NL) and Kleve and Bocholt (D) are 20 minutes by car. The airports of Amsterdam and Düsseldorf are approximately à 75 minutes drive.
The small village of Elten has a lot to offer: 3 big supermarkets, wine and flower stores, a fresh bakery, many restaurants and a few bars. On touristic level you’ll be surprised by the endless opportunities for hiking and biking in the nature parks “Montferland, Bergherbos, Rijnvallei and the Reichswald. Or you are able to visit famous museums that are nearby. And what do you think of the large shopping mall Centro in Oberhausen?
Be sure not to forget to make a climb on the Eltener hill (Eltenerberg). On top, only 80 metres above sea level you have a wonderful view, an old medieval church and the Drusus brunnen (springs).
