When you see the large hills rise above the deep valleys with the adventures forests and when you pass the beautiful and old half timbered-houses and little idyllic villages with ponds and quacking ducks then you know that you have arrived to Funen. Funen and Langeland is a must-see and the best way to discover the region is from one of the dansommer holiday cottages.
Funen – The green heart of Denmark – is also called the 'The Fairytale Island' and is right in the center of Denmark. Thanks to the bridges, Storebælt and Lillebælt, our holiday cottages on Funen are connected to both Jutland and Zealand. This makes it easy to go on a daytrip from your holiday cottage, for example to Copenhagen on Zealand, or Legoland in Jutland. With that in mind, you may not have the time to go neither East nor West, because of the endless options Funen has to offer. Beautiful nature, history, the atmosphere, the cultural events and many exciting activities is what you can expect when booking our holiday cottages on Funen.
H. C. Andersen, the world-famous storyteller, called Funen for "The Garden of Denmark" and with the luxuriant and gentle nature, this is indeed the truth. Driving around in the region from our holiday cottages you cannot miss the well-groomed gardens and parks that are characteristic for the landscape, nor the idyllic ports with paved alleys, the old half-timbered cottages with hollyhock flowers growing on the leaning walls that create an atmosphere unlike any other.
Spread across the island is the large amount of ecological farm shops and roadside stalls selling all the home made jam, arts and ceramics you could wish for. You will also find several art workshops, candle factories, galleries and some of the best restaurants in Denmark, where the top chefs master the arts of fine cooking.
Funen Island is definitely a popular choice, when it comes to holiday homes in Denmark.
