There are holiday rentals in a very large area around Maastricht. Many holiday rentals are scattered from the airport in the north to Eijsden in the south. However, this large periphery belongs to the great metropolis of Maastricht; it is easy to get back to the centre by public transport. As far as the hyper-centre is concerned, it has the largest number of rentals in the west, between the Binnenstad and Jekerkwartier districts. To the east, it is the Wyck district that has the highest concentration of housing.Original and welcoming holiday rentals
Many of Maastricht's rentals consist of floating accommodation. The Meuse functions a bit like a long avenue, where many rentals are moored. It is ideal to enjoy a cosy interior with a nice view. There are also more classic, but no less elegant, holiday rentals. These are often, especially in the inner suburbs, beautiful buildings. Spacious, well decorated, modern... They have many assets to seduce families. For couples, nice accommodation with terrace is available.

Location and orientation
Maastricht is located in the very south of the Netherlands. It is the capital of the province of Limburg. The city is located almost on the Belgian border, just 30 km from Liege. It is this situation that, centuries ago, gave impetus to its development as a commercial city. The city is now very well connected to other cities in the country as well as to other cities in Europe. From Paris, the journey takes about 4 hours by car. Within the city itself, it is easy to get around by bus.The best districts of Maastricht
Maastricht is divided into five districts, all of which have several districts. The majority of sites of historical interest are located in the central Maastricht district, which includes districts such as Binnenstad or Wyck. It is precisely at the level of these two districts that the city's animation is concentrated. Markt Square is the landmark of the city centre, where you can find the city's shops, small restaurants and bars. It is ideal for couples who want to enjoy the lively atmosphere of the centre. For families, the ideal is the southern district.
Travellers and activities
Maastricht offers something for the whole family to enjoy. In the centre, the visit can start at Markt Square, especially if you come in winter. The Christmas market is indeed a real institution in the city. Exciting, the Museum of Natural History will amaze the curious little ones. But the ideal is to enjoy the surroundings of Maastricht. The visit of the caves of Mont Saint-Pierre is the activity not to be missed.

This is one of the activities for which Maastricht is famous: shopping! Indeed, there are a host of pretty shops in the city where you can find the latest fashionable creations. Two places in particular concentrate the stores. Vrijthof Square in the centre is the ideal destination. This is where you can find all the city's concept stores. You can enjoy a small cupcake between fittings. Another district, another atmosphere: in the Wyck district, there are beautiful vintage and elegant shops.
Dutch cuisine may not be very well known, but it is no less tasty! In fact, every year in August, a feast is organised. Le Preuvenemint gives gourmands the opportunity to taste local dishes.
