The Strandlodge is located in the holiday park "de Joossesweg" on the Zeeland peninsula of Walcheren. It is located 300 meters from the dunes with beautiful sandy beaches on the south behind, so there is a lot of sun. The beach is therefore also called the Zeeland Riviera. From the house you can hear the sea and see the dunes! The Joossesweg is a park with mainly private holiday homes located between the pleasant seaside resort of Zoutelande and the sturdy Westkapelle (both 2 km away). The plots are large and therefore you have a lot of privacy. Peace and nature are central themes when it comes to the management of the holiday homes.
Right behind the dunes of the Joossesweg you are on this beautiful beach where you can drink and eat in one of the beach pavilions. In the period of May / early September you can also enjoy your own beach house here. Zoutelande is 2 km from the house with its terraces, shops and restaurants and in the summer there is a lively market on Tuesdays.
The Joossesweg area has on one side the dunes and the beach and on the land side there is a beautiful nature reserve where you can walk.
There are of course various walking and cycling routes! From the Joossesweg you can immediately take the cycle route around Walcheren, a route along all the beaches and picturesque villages.
There are many great attractions in the area. In the summer months there are various events and markets. The tourist towns of Domburg, Oostkapelle and the historic village of Veere are nearby.
