What I love about the countryside in The Netherlands is that, no matter where you visit, you will discover the most scenic places in The Netherlands. In the countryside of the province of Noord- Holland, you will find everything The Netherlands is famous for: polders, authentic Dutch villages, windmills, small Dutch towns and so much more. 
Here you will find the best villages and small towns to visit in the Noord (North)- Holland province.
