Make a holiday home in North Funen your home away from home

Funen is an island found to the south of Denmark and is a place sun-seeking holidaymakers have in the recent past made a habit of fleeing to. This is thanks to a picturesque, relatively secluded coastline littered with bays, straits and inlets. Nature lovers also cherish visits to this, Denmark’s ‘Garden Island’ in which they hike up and down verdant hills carpeted in neat orchards among which are scattered thatch-and-timber farmhouses. Based in lavish North Funen holiday homes provided by HomeAway, visitors will also get the chance to experiences the intricacies of Danish culture through this island’s selection of eateries and bars. These apartments, cottages and re-modelled farmhouses, holidaymakers will find, are spick and span and sprinkled with chic furnishings. Conveniences such as satellite/cable TV and Internet access come as standard in a number of them.

Things to do

-Cultural attractions: One of Denmark’s most popular authors lived in Odense. Hans Christian. Andersen’s house in the heart of Denmark’s third largest city still stands and has been converted into a museum. Here visitors will get the opportunity to peruse his fairy tale books and other creative works which included paintings. For more art by other Danish painters, they can make their way to the Faaborg or Johannes Larsen Museums. Holidaymakers can also treat themselves to theatrical performances at Denmark’s second oldest theatre, the Odense Teater.

-Ancient architecture: In the Egeskov Castle, Funen boasts one of Europe’s oldest renaissance island castles. Before entering this beautifully designed fortress, visitors will want to wander through its elaborate, meticulously manicured, award-winning gardens. They can even take advantage of them to enjoy picnicking under the blue summer skies. The structure, built in 1554, has retained much of its charm and the oil paintings that adorn its walls are largely intact. Also on the island is another 16th century castle, Hvedholm.

-Food and drink: Tourists staying in North Funen self-catering holiday rentals will no doubt relish the opportunity to try out the offerings of surrounding restaurants. At the Restaurant Rudolf Mathis they can appease their taste buds with their choice of seafood and enjoy the bonus of magnificent harbour views. Danish specialities are served at the Sortebro Kro in Odense and visitors who dine there always come away praising the quality of the meals and service. Their selection of wines is also top-drawer. Holidaymakers can also choose to make their own meals with fresh produce available at roadside booths.

-Experience nature: Visitors can seize the opportunity to explore Denmark’s garden island, hiring bicycles to pedal through vast fields of pasture. The island’s best landscapes are found in South Funen, especially between the towns of Svendborg and Faaborg. For sublime views over the South Funen Archipelago, ascending the Svanninge Hills is advised. Along the way visitors should keep their eyes peeled for various bird species.

Weather in North Funen

Tourists headed for holiday homes in North Funen in the peak tourist months of June, July and August will find excellent holidaying conditions; warm temperatures averaging between 20 and 22°C. Though August is Funen’s rainiest month, its average precipitation measures just about 50mm. In September temperatures are slightly lower but at an average of 18°C, still conducive for holidaying, and there is the added benefit of no summer crowds.

Travel to North Funen

There is an airport here, 17km from Odense. But it is a small facility that mostly services only chartered airplanes. Seasonal charters from Rome, Split and other selected European cities are available. A good portion of the island’s visitors therefore prefer to get a flight to Copenhagen and then travel to Funen by road or rail.
