‘De Joffers’ is centrally located in the ‘Land of Peel en Maas’ – a beautiful area which is linked up with spectacular nature reserves such as The Groote Peel, The Maasduinen, The Schuitwater, Broekhuizer Broek, The Estates of The Hamert and Geysteren- all offering plenty of tranquillity and space for fantastic walking and cycling along well sign-posted cycling – and walking routes.
Many beautiful routes lead you through a varied landscape- through forest and heath, along the banks of the river Maas and little lakes, through drift sands and colourful blooming rose fields but also through little picturesque villages which lie dotted along the river Maas for a well-deserved break on one of the many cosy el-fresco outdoor terraces at the river.
The Joffers is a perfect base from which to explore these wonderful cycling routes. Nearby you’ll discover the famous Blueberry – Asparagus – and Rose Routes with the ydillic rose-village of Lottum as the focal point.
