About our home

You will find our home at the end of a small and quiet road. There are no drive throughs here. You park the car in the integrated carport and enter the house with dry shoes. The house was build in the beginning of the 70'ties by an architect who wanted a home for himself and his family. It's build as a bungalow with a built-up roof in the typical style of danish architecture from that time. During summer old roses bloom in the back of the garden. Rhododendrons from the Himalayas fill the garden. Inside the house you'll find two spacious rooms, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Our favourite room is the open kitchen/diningroom with floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors that lead to the large wooden terrace and connects the garden and the interior of the house. Here daily life unfolds. When it's time for more laid-back activities, we usually find ourselves in the spacious livingroom, close to fireplace. Nice to fire up on a cold evening, cuddling up in the sofa reading your newspaper, watching a homemovie on the 42# flatscreen or enjoying some of the musical opportunities - opera, blues, rock, folk, jazz - on the HiFi. The bathrooms offer a quiet retreat and an opportunity to cleanse body and soul. A simpel minimalistic expression, based on danish and international designclassics. The bedrooms are small and meant for sleeping.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

The neighbours are quiet and friendly people and you will find children, cats and dogs galore. Situated on the edge of a small traditional fishingvillage 4 kilometers south af Elsinore, you are no more than 10 minutes walk from the cosy harbour of Snekkersten. Next to the harbour (south) there are good bathing opportunities and a lively beachlife during summer. In the winter it's more quiet but if you happen to be there at the right time you'll see Vikings bathing in the cold water 365 days a year. In Elsinore you will find the famous Kronborg Castle (http://www.kronborgslot.dk/en.aspx) where Prince Hamlet suffered his cruel fate, according to Shakespeare. Crossing to Sweden by one og the electrified ferries, you can enjoy the swedish city of Helsingborg. Here you will find a rich cultural life in Dunkers Kulturhus (http://www.dunkerskulturhus.se/main.aspx?epslanguage=EN) It's an easy ride of 25 minutes across the Sund and you'll be there, as Dunkers is situated right next to the harbour. South of Elsinore is one of the best danish museums of modern art - Louisiana.(http://www.louisiana.dk/dk/Service+Menu+Right/English) Definitely a must if you are interested in modern art. Copenhagen, our vibrant capitol, is only 40 minutes away by car or by train. If you go by car be prepared to pay for parking. You can see more about what's happening on the internet (http://www.aok.dk/english)
