The Welcoming Estates Website was created to provide a service exclusively for members of the Friends of the Countryside who wish to open up their estates and allow visitors to discover and enjoy the beautiful countryside, nature and facilities in exclusive surroundings. Thanks to an attractive, user-friendly and well organised website, people increasingly find their way to the countryside and enjoy the hidden treasures each estate has to offer. The Welcoming Estates Website now displays 28 estates throughout Europe that offer a vast range of actvities for those visiting for the day or making it their holiday destination.
Members can choose whether to welcome only other members of the Friends of the Countryside to their estate or extend this welcome to a larger targeted public.
De Hoge Veluwe National Park (NL) donated €5000 to start this project and Mr. Hein Van Beek of Boubeek Communications and Marketing, who is specialized in leisure activities, is the project manager (www.qlhotels.com, www.seasonsbedandbreakfast.nl).
