Additional Information on the Area
Kaatsheuvel is a small village in the province of Noord Brabant, where cosiness is written with a capital C. It falls under the Municipality of Loon op Zand. The area is very beautiful with many meadows, heathlands, forests and the famous Loonse and Drunense Duinen. Perhaps less well-known, but the landscape is very beautiful. It is a “Slagenlandschap”, which was created by the extraction of raised bog and land consolidation. Watercourses such as the “Oude Lei” and the “Oude Vaart” are traditional waterways by which farmers transported their peat. Also, in the south of the municipality, the landscape “Loonsche Land” has been restored to its former glory dating back to 1850. In many places you can walk and cycle, but it is certainly worthwhile making a car trip through the villages and countryside.
