About our home

Our little white house is in Randers - Denmarks 5th largest town. On the edge of town, our semi-detached house has an open plan layout downstairs with one bedroom on the ground floor and three further bedrooms upstairs. In the open plan living area there are two seating areas, and a dining area, plus a kitchen which is somewhat separate.
The main double bedroom has double doors out to a balcony that looks out towards a little white danish church just 50 meters down the road. The house has wooden floors, except for the kitchen and bathroom which are tiled and have underfloor heating. One of the extra bedrooms upstairs has a double sofabed, there is space for a double bed in the other room too, but that's Samuels room at the moment (there are ekstra matresses if anyone wants to use the floor space. The downstairs bedroom has a single bed.

Our 4 bikes could be included in the exchange.
Samuel is 8 years old, so there are quite a few boys toys, and we have a baby chair if needed.

It's just 1km to Gudenaa ... and you can walk all the way along the river to the town or out to the forest and deer park. We both love to run, and this is a great place to do it! Along the river it takes about 45 mins to walk into town, about 10-15 minutes to cycle.
Randers is an old market town, just half an hour from Aarhus and an hour to Aalborg, not to mention easy access to lots of other small towns. Randers is well known for it's rain forest ... a three domed tropical zoo which sits on the riverside in town.
We have two supermarkets within walking distance and, best of all, there is a great bakery just 2 mins walk away ... you can go through the church yard and down a lane and there it is, with fresh rolls and all the danish pastry you could ask for.
We have our own back garden and a door directly out onto the patio.
