foto-6Summer has really ended and autumn officially started a few weeks ago. Despite this fact, the weather is still really nice here in the Netherlands. While I’m typing this post I’m sitting in the warm but gentle sun wearing a t-shirt and my favorite sunglasses. Perfect! I wish these Indian Summers could last till February next year because I want to enjoy the sun as much as I can. Therefore, I’ve selected the best places to spend the Indian Summer in my home country. So ladies, soak up the last sun rays at these beautiful locations – I have to admit, it’s a bit cold for a bikini – because before you know it it’s Christmas!Branding beach clubBranding beach club in Noordwijk
Branding is a beautiful beach club in Noordwijk which is located a little more south on the Dutch coast. They have a beautiful outside terrace where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. The good thing about Branding is that when it gets a little colder you can relocate to the fireplace inside and order a hot chocolate to stay warm.

Want to enjoy the sun but not in for a drive to the coast? Stay in the city and visit this 85 meter high rooftop terrace in Amsterdam. Get that ultimate city vibe with a breathtaking 360⁰ view and a good mix of locals and tourists. Relax in the many lounge chairs while sipping on your cocktail.

Inn StyleMaarsseveense plassen
If you love the view of forests, water and a beautiful sunset I advise you to visit the Maarsseveense plassen near Utrecht. Perfect for an afternoon swim and a late lunch afterwards. There’s also a  spa right at the lake if you prefer total relaxation and zen mode.

vondelparkVondelpark city park
Vondelpark is a city park in Amsterdam and it’s my favorite! You can find me there at least twice a week whether it’s running, having a lunch or I cycle through to get from A to B. I love this park so much because it really gives a good reflection of the people that live in Amsterdam. You’ll see a lot of locals mixed with happy tourists looking for a perfect picture.

Vakantiehuis-De-Waddenlodge-Texel-1Wadden Lodge vacation home on Texel
Book a vacation home to relax and unwind. Whether that’s a long drive or close to your home. Make sure you have enough privacy and outdoor space to enjoy the beautiful views. This modern home is big enough to spend time with your family!

So despite the fact that summer is officially over that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the weather outside. You can definitely find me at one of these places when the sun’s out but tell me you favorite place to spend Indian Summer. Would love to hear!
