About our home

Our house is a restored former clergyman’s house from 1910.
The house is just next to one of Denmark’s many medieval churches and originally housed the local priest. It is therefore extremely well built and a proud representative of the finest Danish craftsmanship of its period. The house offers 320 sq meters of historical and beautiful living space. It sleeps 6 people or more, has 2 bathrooms, and the garden is a treat of 4700 sq meters of typical Danish trees, grass areas, foresty areas and different leisure posibilites (big trampoline for the children, dining terraces with grills etc).

Where is it?


Stevns as a community offers lots of experiences locally, if you want to study medieval castles, the extinction of the dinosaurs, spend the day on a sandy beach or take a walk in unspoiled villages, small towns and forests belonging to the manor houses dating back to medieval times and more. Maritime atmosphere can also be found just down the road from our house in the small local harbor or in the second biggest fishing harbor in all of Denmark, also situated on Stevns. More harbors are scattered all around the coast of Stevns. Don’t miss the lighting house. From there you can see Sweden, Copenhagen, Germany and even earth's curvature!

The shops are 4 km’s away in the nearest town (Store Heddinge). All necessary everyday facilities are found in Store Heddinge. There’s also a movie theater. The nearest bigger town is Køge (20 km’s) which offers many historical buildings, interesting museums and lots of shops. Our house is 50 km’s from central Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, packed with tourist attractions. Such as The Little Mermaid, harbor sailing, The National Museum, art galleries, all kinds of shopping, restaurants of all sorts (many Michelin restaurants), The National Theatre (Hans Christian Andersen, Ludvig Holberg), The Tivoli Gardens etc. Other places to visit while on Stevns could be Roskilde Domkirke, The Viking Ship Museum, Kronborg (home of Hamlet), just to name a few things.

Denmark is a small country, and by car you can go everywhere on your own quest for adventure in just 3 hours (if you go as far as you possibly can). So if you – for instance – want to explore the (hi)story of Hans Christian Andersen, you can get to his native city (Odense) within an hour and a half.

Apart from the main stream shops, you can get your vegetables, fruit, eggs and more from small farm stands all over Stevns. It is a historical and picturesque place. On the peninsula you can get very far out in the country to extremely secluded places indeed. All of this just an hour’s drive from Copenhagen. You can also get to Copenhagen by bus, train and via the subway. A car is recommended to get to the train (4 km’s from our house). Parking in not a problem in Copenhagen. There are underground parking lots, and you use very convenient apps. When in Copenhagen, you can get to Sweden by bridge to have a look at our brother folk.
