  • Description


    Hey :)
    We are an italian-danish family of 4 (kids from '18 and '20) and a cat. We recently bought a small farmhouse on the island of Bornholm, where we are slowly turning the 2 hectares of grassland into a bountiful food forest garden and a haven for insects and wildlife. We are primarily planteaters and our goal is to become as self-sufficient with food as possible.

    We have small children who goes to sleep early and eat even earlier. We would like to eat all together but we understand if 17.30 is too early for you to have dinner. We all go to bed early and get up early so we are mostly available and active during daytime.

    The island offers lots of beautiful sightseeing both of natural and cultural types. local transport is not the best but we can help sometimes with car or bikes.

    good Internet is available.

    Smoking is only allowed outside.
