Hi, I own 3 apartments in Benidorm, Spain and am looking to rent them out - either short term or long term. What are the best websites in the Netherlands to advertise these fully equipped apartments for holiday rentals? Thank you for your responses....

I'm confused. I know there is no mail delivery here in Holland on Mondays, but this past Monday I happened to pass a PostNL location in The Hague and was surprised to see it was open. What's the deal? Are Dutch post offices open on Monday and there is just no mail delivery? If so, that seems odd, no?...

A friend of mine went to the Brexit meeting last week that was organised by the British Embassy. In case you weren't able to make it, here is what my friend who did attend told me about it in case it is helpful...

Those questions which don't have an answer yet will be added to a list for those people who have been given the ...

I've been here in Holland for a while and I still can't figure this out. On what days do the Dutch hang out the national flag? Anyone know? I live in the center of The Hague and it makes it even more confusing because the city goes around popping in the Dutch flag on all the neighborhood businesses sometime in April and they usually stay up for a month a two, so can't figure out which days exactly are the ones when y...

Hi all- I was just reading that Hudson's Bay, the Canadian retailer that will be opening 10 department stores here in the Netherlands this year, has started the recruitment process. They're looking for 1,800 workers to fill staff positions at those 10 stores, which include The Hague, Rotterdam and Leiden here in South Holland. I don't know if they will require all employees to be able to speak Dutch or not, but if I ...

Hi all, Just wanted to let you know I posted a new blog here on Angloinfo you may be interested in reading. It lists some of the store chains you frequently see on the Dutch High Street and other retail stores that are part of the same company (i.e. have the same parent company). For example, a lot of expats probably aren't aware that Blokker, Xenos, Leen Baker, Bart Smit, Marskramer and Intertoys are all divisions o...

Holland weather can be so weird. Most places get super warm and are usually sunny during August. Here it can just as easily be overcast, damp and only with a high temperature in the 60s. It's crazy! Sorry, just had to vent :-)  ...
