If all that you’re after is a cookie-cutter holiday then sure, you’re doing the right thing by staying in a hotel, motel or B&B. But if you’re after an experience that is truly memorable, sometimes it pays to think outside the box (at least a little).

Today’s Airbnb property is the perfect example. A hop, skip and a jump away from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam you’ll find this romantic windmill that provides the perfect base for anyone in their adventure through the Netherlands.

Bring a few friends and you’ll have the whole windmill to yourself, with multiple bedrooms, bathrooms and a luxurious kitchen and living area.

Huge wooden beams are striking features and you’ll feel snuggled up in this cosy property, before venturing out to explore the nearby green fields and rivers.

Then, when you’re ready to head back to the hustle and bustle of city life, Amsterdam is only a 15 minutes’ drive so you’ll never be too far from the action.

Even if you’re not planning a trip to The Netherlands any time soon, it’s worth scrolling through the gallery above to see what they’ve done to the place. We bet the interior is the last thing you would have expected after your first glance.
