About our home

Aarhus is the place to be! Aarhus' historical charm and modern cultural and culinary puts in on the top list of cities to visit - and at the same time it offers the coziness and friendliness of a small town.

Our home is a typically Scandinavian house, with wooden floor, fireplace and Scandinavian furnitures. We love spending time in our home and having friends over especially in the summer where we enjoy a barbecue in our lovely garden.

Our house is comfortable, clean, and spacious. We have 3 bedrooms and an extra room. One teenage room with double bed and sofa. Another large teenage room with double bed and a master bedroom (double bed) with private bathroom.
We have a living room and a large kitchen where all the family can eat. The house has two bathrooms.

Bikes for 3 is available.
We don't have cable TV but ChromeCast
