Make a holiday rental home or accommodation in Denmark your home away from home

Denmark is a country with a huge amount of history, located in the southern reaches of Scandinavia. Most of the country is surrounded by water, connected to the European mainland only at the German boarder. With over 500 islands, and a massive coastline, it is little wonder that the Danish ancestors, the Vikings, were such fearsome sailors.

                                                      We're deeply in love with this lovely villa in Hornbaek and keep on returning year after year during our summer vacation. The perfect beach, the beautiful lakes and the lovely old fishing village that also holds some excellent little restaurants, makes the area fantastic for recreational activities. This house has a perfect location, it is calm and quiet, with both shopping and the beach within a short walking distance. It is very well equipped and there are many rooms, so it is very convinient for two or even three families to stay there together. Especially the gathering of the big family around the barbecue in the garden during the late summer evenings have been wounderful for us. And the morning coffee does never ever taste any better than it does together with fresh bread from the splendid bakery on the main street, taken on the sunny back-side of the house after a quick morning swim ! / Fredrik and family

                                                      Superbly presented waterfront home

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      The property really is as good as, if not better than, its on-line description and photos. It was beautifully presented and well-maintained, but still a family home that felt welcoming. The owner provided excellent customer service. Good location for exploring the 'Danish Riviera' and the nearby village was a delight with its restaurants, harbour fish cafes and shops. Highly recommended.
