    South Funen is known for its beautiful nature, with Svanninge Hills and easy access to the archipelago of South Funen. Hesseløje is a small and cosy area with your own kids friendly beach and jetty. The cove ensures calm waters. Take a walk at the isthmus, where you will find a rich bird life. The kids can spend hours chasing crabs by the jetty. The adults can catch fish in the ocean. From this area you get a unique view over the ocean and the island Illumø, with Helnæs in the horizon. Bøjden luxury camping is within a walks distance. They show great hospitality and here you find a small grocery store. Tickets to the indoor swimming centre can be bought here.    

    Fåborg is a cosy seaport with good shopping possibilities. Take a walk along the lovely shopping street. The harbour environment is unique with the possibility to bathe in the harbour. If you move further away, Egeskov Castle Park is a major attraction that you should visit. On the way you can enjoy the beautiful nature with Brahetrolleborg church. In Odense there is a Zoo and shopping possibilities in Rosengårdscentret. The latest news is ‘Odins’ bridge, which is a swing bridge.    


    Bøjden/Funen Sea Ferry leaves from Bøjden harbour and invites for a day trip, where the kids can try sailing and visit Als where UNIVERSE entertainment park is located. Dybbøl Mill, the 1864 museum and a beautiful walk in Sønderborg are all possible options for entertainment. When you return home to your summerhouse it is lovely to enjoy a moment at the terrace with a glass of cool white vine and experience the sunset, which is always a different sight. 


    Have a nice holiday, and make sure to take a look at the surroundings. :-)
