The former tobacco farm Rutjensland, built in 1898, was built on the foundations of what used to be a farm for hundreds of years.
It is a protected, historic monument and is situated close to the Rhine dike between Driel and Heteren, a peaceful, rural part of the green and panoramic Betuwe region.
The possibilities for hiking and biking trips are numerous. Although you can easily spend a couple of days wandering around the Betuwe, the other side of the Rhine is also very interesting.
Right across the Rhine you will find yourself in the Veluwe region with its woods, heathland etcetera. An area with beautiful hiking and biking routes.
You can cross the river by means of the solar driven foot-passenger ferrry Driel-Heveadorp.
The well known Ooijpolder, part of the nature reserve the Gelderse Poort, is within biking distance.

Nature lovers, people who enjoy being surrounded by lots of space in a peaceful and quiet area are more than welcome. We kept our facilities basic to maintain this peacefulness: this means no canteen, no swimming pool or extensive playgrounds for the children. This doesn’t mean children aren’t welcome!
On the First Floor of the farm there are two bedrooms for four persons.
We offer you a temporary warmly home feeling.
