The Surroundings

Emily's Place is situated centrally, in the heart of the province of Limburg.
Significant is the green area, with nature reserves, trails and a cyclepath network.
The nature reserve "De Teut" is only 500 meters away, just like the prehistorical site of "De Holsteen".
These carvingrocks are dated in the prehistory (10.000 years BC).

The nature reserve of DE TEUT has a lot of nice trails to walk in a light-glowing landscape.
Typically are the heathland, pine tree woods and marshes.
On the highest point of "de Teut", you can enjoy a beautiful view, a wide panorama of the region.

Even through this nature reserve, you can join as a cyclist the famous cyclepath network : more than 2000 km cycle path. Limburg : a paradise for the cyclist.
