  • Description


    We're an Indian-Danish family consisting of Satya (42) from India, Malene (39) Danish and our two children Isha (8) and Vishnu (4). We also have “Hello Kitty”, our farm house cat, who lived here when we moved in.

    We live in old farm house with a big garden including kitchen garden and a big grass field attached, where we have planted hundreds of trees and fruit bushes. We moved from Copenhagen in 2013 and haven’t even for a second regretted our shift to the country side. We have plenty of space indoors and outdoors. Ollerup, the lively little village, that we live in, has plenty of children, playgrounds and amazing nature. We’re 4 km's from the sea and 9 km’s from Svendborg, at the sourthern tip of Fyn, from where you can reach one of the many beautiful islands in the sea around us.

    We're an Indian-Danish Family, with an Indian spiritual life well-rooted in the Danish soil. You will be part of our family, while staying with us and integrated into daily Danish living based on good socialist values mixed with Indian food and music. We love to travel around our local area consisting of numerous small islands, which can be reached by boat, cosy at home with friends and family and create new projects around the house and land.

    We have a lovely small farm with about 3000 m2 garden including kitchen garden and then about 30000 m2 grass field with lots of trees, that we've planted. We love this place, and love to take care of it. But it also needs a lot of attention and love to grow sustainably, so we can always use some extra hands.

    We always have a lot of projects going on like building a shelter, repairing an old wooden greenhouse, building a small garden house for guests (including work aways), planting, harvesting, pruning and trimming. Your help will be invaluable for us, and we hope to share some great organic gardening experiences with you.

  • Accommodation


    We have a big house with a separate guest room, with enough space for one person or a couple to stay comfortably. You have your own entrance. There are shared bathrooms and you will generally be part of the family, while staying with us. The kitchen (and fridge) is of course at your disposition but we generally eat together and cook Indian as well as European/Danish food.
