The little Paradise [Het Kleine Paradijs] is located in a unique location, two kilometres away from the picturesque village of Easterein. You could make your journey there by walking, cycling or sailing and enjoy the surroundings. Easterein has a medieval church and Friesland’s oldest pub (with adjoining restaurant) the ‘Noflik Easterin’. Enjoy the peace and space of this cultural and historical area. You will soon become impressed by the beautiful farms in the area, picturesque meadows and countless waterways. Bicycles, canoes and pedal boats are ready to rent. You can easily use the property’s cycling paths and get around the villages on foot and on a bike.

The monumental Slachtedijk runs through meadows and along waterways, leading you to villages with terraces and by strolling through narrow streets you can learn more about the fascinating Frisian culture and history. (A Slachtedijk is a road that is higher than the land to protect those travelling on it, these used to be protection for those living in the Netherlands as the land is below sea level and is at risk of flooding)
