For anyone dreaming of a simple life, you may want to consider moving to Giethoorn, Netherlands. This idyllic village has no roads, and the only access is by water over the many beautiful canals or on foot over its wooden arch bridges. The locals use punters to get around and cars have to remain outside the village. It's no surprise Giethoorn is a popular tourist attraction and has been given the nickname the Venice of the Netherlands.
