The Glorious Dutch Bulbfields
Every spring the fields of western Holland, with the emergence of millions of blooms, explode in a riot of
colour. We offer an unrivalled choice with three 4 star and two 3 star superior hotels. All are within easy
reach of Keukenhof Gardens and “the Bulbfields Route” and all offer either menu choice or buffet dinner.
