In Hotel Restaurant Jans Rijs you can enjoy the nature of the 'Rijsterbos', which is part of the national landscape 'Gaasterland'. This area is perfect for those who love hiking and biking. I have stayed here before and really liked it but previously stayed in the little bungalows. This time I had a room in the newly renovated main house and it was just wonderful! Top marks!
Bed & Breakfast Rijsterbosch is located at the Rijsterbos in Rijs, also known for its watersport activities due to all the lakes in the surrounding area. IJsselmeer is only 1.9 mi away. Our friends were in a room upstairs and it was gorgeous. The sitting area was beautiful as well.
Located in Rijs, 28 miles from Harlingen, DeVilla provides a garden and free WiFi. The bed and breakfast has a terrace. Heerenveen is 24 miles from DeVilla, while Sneek is 16 miles away. Marvellous historical building. Our room was big and had a high ceiling. Beds are very comfortable. Nice and friendly people.
We arrived about 5pm, (after the 4pm check in) and had a little trouble finding the front door as the obvious door was locked and the side door they use required a key. We went to the restaurant adjacent to the property and the hostess said we came at a "bad time" but when she had a chance, she'd let us in. We were first shown to a ground floor room with a door that opened out into the dining room! If my husband got up before me and there were guests eating breakfast, they would see me in bed! The only way to appreciate a view was to get out of bed and walk over to a window down a little hall. It was not the room picture I booked online. We had to pry out of our host that there was another room available upstairs and when we were shown it and asked to have it, it seemed we were putting her out. We took that room upstairs, even carried our own luggage up the stairs. And that was pretty much the last we saw of her and her husband as it was a Sunday night and they take Monday's off! They did make us breakfast and brokered the E Bikes for us, but our room was never cleaned Monday, the toiletries were never replaced, and the towels that we left on the ground to indicate we'd like fresh ones were there when we returned. On the ground! They provided us with a safe for our belongings; a small, light, metal box, not attached to anything and they provided the code! We had to ask three times for some ice to cool our wine we brought off and had to go to their quarters to ask once again, coming through the kitchen as we couldn't find their front door! And that did not please them! In summary, here is a beautiful house in the countryside, a beautiful living room and it was as quiet as a church. A little music, an open window, a bottle of wine with an appetizer so we guests could visit with each other would have been wonderful. Instead it felt like we were staying with a rich aunt who was doing our mom a favor by letting us stay.

My friends and I had dinner in the garden on Saturday evening and it was beyond excellent! I had the lamb cutlets and goulash as a main and it was the best cooked, most tender lamb I've ever had - and I've eaten a lot of lamb in my 56 years! My friends had the haddock and proclaimed it delicious and we shared the mango sorbet and ice cream for pud which was equally amazing! Well done Hotel Jans!

The stay at hotel “Devilla” had been a very pleasant stay! The hostess welcomed us at the for us appropriate time, and was even so kind to reserve a restaurant for us! The accomodation is a very Nice estate where from you can go for a hike in one of the most beautifull parts of Friesland. We would recommend everyone to plan a visit and Enjoy all the beautifull aspects of “Devilla” we sure enjoyed it!
