Make a holiday home in Moen your home away from home

Situated towards the southeast of Denmark is an island that brings together some of the country’s best attractions. Moen is a picturesque isle boasting a stunning coastline characterised by impressive chalk cliffs and sandy beaches. Inland are lush green meadowlands where cattle graze peacefully. It is home to some rare species of fauna and offers ideal grounds for a host of outdoor adventures. The island is also known for its ancient churches that are covered in captivating artwork. A holiday home in Moen will put visitors at the heart of all these interesting attractions and more as well as offer them a base from which to explore the neighbouring islands. HomeAway offers holidaymakers a variety of excellent homes, apartments and cottages which guarantee a comfortable stay and proximity to important sites. The open green spaces and sense of privacy you get with Moen holiday homes is unparalleled.

Things to do

-Cliffs: Among Moen’s biggest draws are the arresting white cliffs that the Danes refer to as Mons Klint. These sloping walls of blinding limestone drop into the blue waters of the Baltic Sea leaving just a narrow strip of beach. Along the top of these cliffs is a trail which offers visitors breathtaking sea views. Going up and down necessitates climbing and descending a challenging set of stairs but anyone who has visited will readily agree that it’s worth the trouble; particularly those who get to spot the peregrine falcon during their hike.

-GeoCentre Mons Klint: This is an ultramodern museum where one can learn more about Moen’s amazing cliffs and how they came into being, explained expertly by the knowledgeable staff. Visitors will also learn about the dinosaurs that inhabited Moen millions of years ago while viewing incredibly detailed models. They can participate in exciting dinosaur excavations to Greenland arranged by the centre as well. The centre also shows 3D movies of National Geographic films.

-Gastronomy: For gourmet dining in one of this region’s finest eateries, a meal at the Gourmet Gaarden is recommended. Those who have partaken of this restaurant’s offerings declare it as good as any similar restaurant in Paris or elsewhere in Europe. Residents of Moen holiday rentals should not forget to make a reservation the Gourmet Gaarden to enjoy splendid cooking done with fresh, organic ingredients. At David’s they can enjoy a scrumptious breakfast or lunch while soaking up the summer sunshine.

-Ancient buildings: Visitors can apprise themselves on Danish history with a trip to the Elmelunde Kirke. This lonely white edifice rising into the Moen sky is known for the spectacular frescoes painted in the late 1500s by an unknown artist on its ceiling. A walk through the nicely landscaped cemetery is as refreshing as the silence inside the building. The aforementioned frescoes can also be seen in the Fanefjord Church, a 13th century church.

-Njord: Njord is a small island adjacent to Moen which is easily reached by a narrow bridge to the northwest of Moen. This is a tranquil island hosts a village where time seems to have stood still. It is lined with quaint cottages and boasts a uniquely-shaped church.

Weather in Moen

The weather on this island is more or less the mild fare one will find in any other part of Denmark. Even in the hottest days of summer temperatures barely go past 20°C. Those looking to take advantages of the relatively high August temperatures should prepare for rain as well as this is one of the wettest months in Moen. Average rainfall at this time measures about 150mm.

Travel to Moen

Holidaymakers headed for holiday homes in Moen will want to first book a ticket to Copenhagen’s Kastrup Airport. This should be relatively easy to do as most low-cost carriers and mainstream airlines have flights to this airport. Thanks to Denmark’s efficient railway network, travelling from Copenhagen to Moen won’t be a problem though one will need to connect trains at Vordingborg and Stege before they arrive.

Great summer house

5 of 5
A beautiful house in a great location. The beach is just a few minutes walk away and the large garden is great for kids. The house was superbly renovated, spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The hosts were very friendly and helpful with some good tips on local attractions. We all really enjoyed our stay.

Peace and quiet!

4 of 5
This was my family's first visit to Denmark, and our first holiday together for a long time. Overall, we had a wonderful time and I would certainly recommend it! As far as I am aware, we were the first British family to visit Strandgaarden, so there were some things that are perhaps a bit different for the British traveller to the mainland European. The main thing to be aware of is that the beds were not 'double' by British size, so I would suggest bringing bedding for a queen size bed, or a flat double sheet, or bedding for two single beds. Secondly, the welcome pack and information about the house was all in Danish and German, so make sure you're able to do a bit of translating, or request that it be provided to you in English! I would also suggest being aware that there are no wardrobes in the bedrooms. There are hangers in the house, and large chests of drawers. There are also no mirrors in the bedrooms, but there were several in the main part of the house and the bathroom. TV was good with occasional English things. The wifi worked, but it was a bit sporadic. The house was in beautiful condition, the shower was very warm and powerful. There are two showers, but we just used the one in the main house. The wood-burner was a real treat to use. The shops (Netto, Aldi, Superbrugsen) are about a 15 minute drive, but beware of lots of pheasants and hares jumping out into the road on your way! The beach was luscious, and the woodlands wonderful. If you are British, make sure you know what kind of milk you want to buy in Danish!
