Why buy a bungalow in Flevoland?
The origin of Flevoland fits in with the tradition in which the Dutch fought against the water and conquered land on the water. The many polders in the west and north of our country are the silent witnesses of this age-old struggle. The Zuiderzee project is a real feat in this battle against the water. The engineer Cornelis Lely's plan included the construction of the Afsluitdijk and a number of land reclamations, including the Wieringermeer, the Noordoostpolder and Flevoland.
The development that our society has gone through in the 20th century is clearly reflected in the landscape and urban development in Flevoland. The mechanization in agriculture and with it the scaling up have left their mark: in the most recently constructed polders of South Flevoland, the agricultural plots are the largest and with the rise of the car a few large residential areas were sufficient. Common features in the Flevoland landscape are: open agricultural areas, interspersed with farms and their windbreaks, which form green islands in the landscape. The long straight roads that cross the province create a landscape that is reminiscent of Mondriaan's artworks with clean lines and sharp contrasts.
Flevoland was one of the few places in our country where innovative designers such as Rietveld, Van Eesteren, Van Eyk and Ruys were able to realize their ideas on a larger scale.
Also special are the former islands of Urk and Schokland, which have become part of the mainland of the province as a result of the reclamation. Schokland was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1995. In 1859 this island was cleared by order of King William II because of the unsafe situation (due to the many floods) and because the maintenance of the island was too expensive. Since 1942 it has been part of the mainland of the Noordoostpolder through draining.
Flevoland is very centrally located in the Netherlands and from the beautiful peaceful surroundings interesting places like Amsterdam, Amersfoort, Zwolle, Apeldoorn, Utrecht, Enkhuizen and Medemblik can be reached easily and quickly.
The immediate surroundings of Bungalowpark De Bremerberg, the Veluwemeer and IJsselmeer offer many recreational opportunities for walkers and cyclists. The Veluwe is also within easy reach via a bicycle ferry.
