Βέλουε
Explanation:
To my opinion this is the best approximation of the word's pronunciation in Greek, since Greek does not have an exact equivalent of the Dutch "uw" sound.

A letter-to-letter "ου-β" (u-w) transcription would result to "Βέλουβε" but this is quite far from how the Dutch pronounce it, so I would advice not to use it.

Example sentence(s):
  • Όταν είχαμε πάει στην Ολλανδία, ο πεθερός μου μας πήγε βόλτα στο Βέλουε. Ήταν όνειρο!
