Eefsele is a hamlet in the Dutch municipality of Oost Gelre, a part of the province of Gelderland, Netherlands.

It was first mentioned in 1315 or 1316 as Everslo, and means "forest of Evert (person)".[2] It is not a statistical entity,[3] and the postal authorities have placed it under Lievelde.[4] The hamlet was accidentally bombed on 8 February 1945, because the target was a German stronghold in the forest. Eefsele consists of about 80 houses.[5]
