  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 5. Lauge 4 Aske 9 Bjørk 12 and parents Eliane 41 and Mads 43 We like to spend time together, playing, enjoying nature, swimming in the summer, and growing our own organic vegetables. We have been traveling a lot ourselves and love to meet people from other parts of the world and learn about politics and lifestyle. We moved out of central Copenhagen a 7 years ago - and we are now living on a newly renovated 300 sqm family farm originally from 1811. The farm is now a hobby project with a few sheeps, and a large organic vegetable garden which we are currently working on. We eat mainly vegetarian but also fish, chicken and lamb from our own small heards.
    We are situated in a small village in the beautiful Danish countryside approximately 1 hour south west of Copenhagen. The beach is a pleasant 6 km bike ride away and forest and fields are just outside the door.

    Travellers staying with us will learn about basic DIY projects, organic gardening, vegetarian cooking,– as we expect that we will be cooking together – besides that we will do our best to introduce travellers to Danish culture, politics and everyday life in a family. We have chosen a life in the countryside so visitors will also learn about the ups and downs of choosing a different lifestyle than busy city life.

    Accommodation

    We have renovated the entire house during the past 6 years including 2 guest bedrooms in the one end of ground floor. So you will have a cozy bedroom with a view of the garden. It’s nice and quiet and you won’t hear the family in the morning. You’ll have access to a bathroom on the same floor. We sleep upstairs and have a second bathroom here. You’ll of course also have access to high speed internet.
    We are working as self-employed psychologist (Eliane) and Business Director in a media company (Mads) Our days normally start around 6:30 getting the kids ready for school and kinder garden around 8. Mads primarily works from home and Eliane leaves for Slagelse 3 days a week - where there is easy access to Copenhagen by train 3-4 times pr. hour.

    Eliane works in Slagelse so you'll be able to ride with her to and from the train station 20 min away in the Town Slagelse. From here it’s easy to reach both Copenhagen (50 min) and other parts of Denmark by train. Other public transportation from the village where we live to towns close by (Slagelse, Skælskør and Næstved) is available with a 3-5 km bikeride to and from the bus.
