Luxury villa on an island in National Park Alde Feanen, Eernewoude, Friesland
average rating of 4.875 based on 21 reviews

Rust, ruimte, comfortabel

  • 4 of 5

Begin september met een groep vriendinnen een weekend naar Titania geweest. De plek zelf met zeilgelegenheid, terassen aan het water, zwemmogelijkheid etc. had zoveel te bieden dat we de kant bijna niet opgeweest zijn. We hadden echt het gevoel dat we het hele eiland voor ons zelf hadden. Wat een rust en ruimte! Het huis is leuk en comfortabel ingericht en is in verhouding kleiner dan de ruimte buiten.

Owner's Response: Het is een heerlijk en gezellig huis, met net voldoende ruimte voor een grote groep, maar met name buiten heb je alle ruimte rondom. Dus bij goed weer leef je lekker veel buiten en bij slecht weer ben je meer op het huis aangewezen en dan kan het te klein zijn voor een grote groep. Daarom verhuren we ook eigenlijk alleen gedurende de zomermaanden.

Pracht huisje, schitterende locatie.

  • 5 of 5

Na de fijne, goede en snelle communicatie met de gastvrouw hebben wij het afgelopen weekend gebruik mogen maken van Titania.

Het huis is erg compleet, met prachtige details ingericht en licht op een mooie locatie aan een rustig vaarwater.

De diverse teraslocaties, aan het water of in de tuin geven alle mogelijkheden om goed en gezellige de dag en avond door te komen.

De separaat bij te huren sloep is een echte aanrander en sluit aan op de gehele kwaliteitsbeleving van een erg goed weekend in de Alde Feanen.

Willen bij deze nogmaals bedanken voor het gebruik maken van en zullen zeker met de tijd terugkeren.

Well appointed villa in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this villa in the natural park the Alde Faenen for the first time in August 2015 for one week and rented it again this year (2016) for two weeks.

The house is in a secluded location on one of the lakes of the Alde Faenen. It has 3 nicely appointed double bedrooms plus one bedroom for 4 people. Throughout the house paintings & canvas photographs from the local artist adorn the walls. The kitchen is well equipped including a combined hot air/micro wave oven, large fridge and dishwasher. All from top quality brands. The bathroom has a washer/dryer. All in good functioning order. There is no shortage of utensils, pots and pans, cutlery, plates or glasses so it can comfortably cater for large groups. And it has a fireplace with wood provided for the colder days.

The villa caters very well for holidays on the water: it provides three wooden sailing boats (Valk), 4 kayaks, 2 surfboards, a motorboat (to get to a from the villa) and optionally a luxury sloop. We always paid extra for the sloop because it allows for day trips wider afield from the villa by connected waterways to Leeuwarden, Sneek and Grou which are all worth a visit.

The owners do everything to make every stay special: from the welcome hamper with local specialties to dealing with any problems or special requests immediately and effectively. The villa is professionally cleaned before every stay.

Holidays in Friesland are of course very much dependent on good weather given its focus on watersports. However, we found the house well stocked with boardgames and books for the rainy days. Also, picturesque towns closeby are an ideal escape for when the weather fails to co-operate.

We hired the villa twice and will do so again. We’d recommend it to any family who loves watersports and nature.

Alles war rundum schön

  • 5 of 5

In Titania kann man perfekt entspannen und die Ruhe genießen. Die Ausstattung ist mehr als reichlich in Allem. Man merkt in allen Details, dass die Eigentümer das Haus für sich eingerichtet haben. Leeuwarden und Groningen sind nicht weit für Shoppingtouren wenn es mal zu einsam wird auf der Insel.

Fazit: Wir würden sofort wieder buchen, 5 Sterne von uns ! Uli & Reinold

net zo mooi als het plaatje

  • 4 of 5

Het perfecte huis voor ons familie-uitje in het Pinksterweekend. Helaas veel wind en koud ,waardoor we minder van alle voorzieningen rondom het huis konden genieten dan we gehoopt hadden ,maar juist daardoor was de ruimte om het huis ook heel fijn als we toch naar buiten wilden.

Het meest karakteristieke en prettige aan het huis en de plek was dat er zoveel rekening is gehouden met alle weersomstandigheden en soorten mensen. Overal was het comfortabel te maken . De relatief kleine huiskamer was gezellig en zo ingericht dat ieder zijn plek kon vinden .

Klein min puntje was dat de zeilboten niet helemaal in orde waren (misschien de eerste huurders van het seizoen ? ) ,maar daar heeft de eigenaresse achteraf heel sympathiek op gereageerd . Ook de beheerder was trouwens heel behulpzaam .In het geheel genomen straalde alles uit dat men "niet moeilijk deed" ,met een goed oog voor wat een vakantieganger wenst en prettig vindt.

Er is weinig te huur voor zoveel mensen op zo'n mooie plek met veel privacy en toch midden tussen de mensen op en aan het water ,we hopen dan ook nog eens terug te komen om volop te kunnen genieten van de omgeving en alle zon/zwem en vaargelegenheid !

Een dikke 4* plus dus .

Perfecte plek

  • 5 of 5

Wat een fantastische plek is dit. Een geweldig mooi huis, overal prachtig aangelegde terrassen, fijne steigers en schitterend en perfect onderhouden bootjes om mee te varen. Binnen is alles aanwezig om een luxe tijd te hebben, van keukengerei tot handdoeken en badjassen. We hebben ons als familie met z'n elven hier heerlijk thuis en op ons gemak gevoeld. En het eiland gaf een heerlijk vrij gevoel. Een echte aanrader, en voor de prijs hief je het niet te laten.

Car: recommended


Holiday home Titania is uniquely located on the corner of an island in the Sânemar, in the middle nature of National Park De Alde Feanen. This is close to the village Eernewoude and just beond Hotel Princenhof.

On the mainland there are 2 parking spaces where you leave the cars, after that you can only reach the property by boat! Obviously there is a rowing/motor boat available for you.

This place is ideal for those seeking peace, space, water and lots of naure. There are plenty of opportunities for sailing: there are 2 boats ready. The park has a direct connection to the Frisian lakes, so you can sail to Grouw or to Sneek. There are 4 kayaks at the house for the most beautiful small ditches.

And if you prefer more convenience, you can (in consultation) hire the 12 person luxury boat and have your cold beer or white wine on board.

In the house you will find games and books, but you will only need these if it is too cold or wet outside. In fine weather you can swim in the lake (outdoor shower), sunbathing on one of the many terraces with sunbeds, or just relax in the spacious louncheset. Obviously there is a BBQ and there are 4 picnic tables in the garden, so there is always a place in the sun or in the shade. Enjoy the evening with magnificent sunsets and especially enjoy the silence around you.

National Park De Alde Feanen.

In the heart of Friesland is the National Park De Alde Feanen (Old Fen), located around the village Eernewoude, in the triangle between Leeuwarden, Heerenveen and Drachten.

It is a nearly 4,000 ha area with fen and bog. It is a very varied landscape of lakes, peat bogs, ditches, reed marshes, swamps, quaking bogs and marsh marigold meadows and reedbeds. In the area there are more than 450 species of plants.

Because of its location and variation,Alde Feanen is extremely important for water, marsh and meadow birds. In the summer many birds breed. So far there are over 100 species observed. The wet area is an essential stopover for many migratory birds. There are also a number of storks nesting in station 'It Eibertshiem'.

The Alde Feanen has the status of a national park since 2006 and is the twentieth National Park in the Netherlands and also the last one. National Parks in the Netherlands are the most important natural areas who will continue in the current state. The National Park also includes a visitor center with all the information about the area. You will find the visitor center in the former building of villa 'It Wiid'.


The recreational values of the Alde Feanen are large, particularly in the area of watersports, sport fishing and skating. In and around the Alde Feanen are various watersports centres like Earnewâld, Grou, Warten and De Veenhoop.

In summer, more than 700,000 water tourists visit the area. In the park most of the canals, ponds and lakes are easily accessible for water sports. There are plenty of opportunities for sailing and fishing. At various points there are special berths constructed by 'De Marrekrite'. Above all Alde Feanen is a unique canoe area.
