    Ijesselmeer Lake is the largest lake in Holland and is one of the Netherland’s most popular sailing regions. The picturesque views, calm waters, diverse wildlife and the charming fishing and trading towns that surround the shores of this lovely lake make it a fantastic place for a weekend getaway. One of our favourite villages is Stavoren, the oldest of the 11 towns that border the lake. Stavoren was one of the most important towns in the Hanseatic League and was a major player in the Baltic Maritime trade in the middle ages. Though not a lot remains from its rich past as a trading town, Stavoren has become a prime destination for water sports enthusiasts.
