Lonely Planet ranked the lovely island Texel (the Netherlands) in the top 10 of European destinations to see this year. Texel offers unspoilt dunescapes, wildlife reserves and white-sand beaches. During summer there are lots of events, including the spectacular Ronde om Texel, the worlds largest catamaran race (June 25).
Texel is the largest Wadden Sea Islands of the Netherlands. It is the perfect place for a short or longer holiday. QL Hotel Bij Jef is located in Den Hoorn, the most southern town of the island. This week, Michelin star chef Jef Schuur has earned the SVH Master Title, which is the highest degree of professional competence that you can achieve in the hospitality industrie. Host and sommelier Nadine generously pours the variety of wines for you.
