Make a holiday home in Svaneke your home away from home

There are many reasons holidaymakers throng the Danish island Bornholm every summer. It is a small, laid back island which receives the most hours of sunshine in the country. Bornholm boasts plenty of natural beauty including lush landscapes and beautiful beaches. To the far east of this island is the seaside town of Svaneke which boasts a lovely harbour and quaint, colourful half-timbered houses. This is town with a rich history, having been established in the 13th century as a fishing village. Now holiday homes in Svaneke are sought after by tourists looking to explore Bornholm. HomeAway offers holidaymakers the chance to make their lodgings in luxurious apartments and spacious bungalows that are close to the sea. Some Svaneke holiday homes come with Internet access to keep guests in touch with the world.

Things to do

-Sightseeing: Svaneke presents holidaymakers with a unique side of Denmark consisting of lovely, brightly-coloured half-stone, half-timbered houses lining narrow streets. During their tour of this town visitors will encounter a number of interesting landmarks including the towering lighthouse that guides ships into the harbour. The 1919 structure boasts a peculiar box shape, a departure from the usual conical structure. They will also come across Denmark’s oldest windmill which was constructed in 1929.

-Gastronomy: This island was once a fishing village where fishermen brought in their herring catches. The tradition still continues today, evidence of which is in the smokehouses which dot the island. At the Svaneke smokehouse holidaymakers can enjoy different kinds of fish. For authentic Danish cuisine, residents of Svaneke holiday homes can try the Rogeriet i Svaneke where they can enjoy sublime herring.

-Ancient ruins: Since they’ll be in the Bornholm North area, those staying in Svaneke holiday homes will be able to easily pay a visit to the ruins of the Hammershus Castle which sit on the northernmost tip of the island. To think that most of the castle still stands after more than 800 years is simply incredible. Hammershus has seen many a war during the Middle Ages and was deserted in 1745.

-Museums: Those with an interest in art can visit the Bornholms Art Museum which has a unique saltshaker shape and is located right by the sea. Here they can feast their eyes on art pieces dating back to the 1800s. Another spot worth visiting for history buffs is the Medieval Centre of Bornholm. It is a model village based on how daily life was like for Danes in the Middle Ages.

-Outdoor activities: Bornholm is home to Denmark’s third-largest forest, Almindingen. It provides ideal grounds for hiking, bike riding or horseback adventures. The woods are also ideal for a spot of camping. The waters off Bornholm’s beaches are ideal for swimming, surfing and a number of other water sports.

Cable/satellite TV with good access to services. Only hiccup was that we found no linen for beds or towels on arrival. Owners quickly sorted this when we called them (despite it being late evening). You probably need a car - although we did rent cycles (very close by) and didn't use our car at all for 3 of the 7 days. 'Mobile' bakery comes to the adjacent hamlet each morning from 7.30 - 9.30. Also in the hamlet is a 'pub' with food served too. The weather was kind despite it being late September, and the cycling is easy and very pleasant. The towns/villages are small but interesting, and very easy going. The beaches are tremendous. All in all we had a really great time.
