The Space

If you're visiting Funen ("Fyn" in Danish), and you want to experience the countryside where H.C. Andersen and Carl Nielsen grew up, here's the place to sleep.

We're a very well travelled family who speak danish, english and spanish fluently as well as some german, french, italian, portuguese, russian, polish, chinese, tagalog, australian (yes, that's a seperate language, mate!) and swahili that we picked up on the way.

We live in a large house about 7km from the center of Odense, sharing the premises with a horseriding club. There's also a cat occupying a part of our house, and we have hired a couple of hens and geese to lay eggs in our back yard.

We can offer you a small private room with two comfortable beds, and a posibility to throw in extra mattresses for kids.

Notice, the offer is not including any meals, since we can't always be around to make it. You can cook your own food in our kitchen, or if we have time, you can join our meals for a small extra tip. (We do mostly semi-vegetarian indian inspired food, and we're pretty good at taking any allergies or special needs into account.)

There are busses nearby, but we can probably help you out with picking you up and taking you back to the train station if you have suitcases.

The main west-east highway is only 3 minutes away by car, so it's also great for a stop-over on your way to Copenhagen.

Other Things to Note

Notice that the room is on the first floor, and there are some rather steep stairs.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Frank and Elia were gracious hosts to us and our children. Their house is very convenient to the freeway/autobahn. This is a good location for visiting places like Odense, Egeskov castle, Vikingemuseet Ladby, and we used this is as a hopping point for Jelling/Billund the next day.

    They are some beautiful horses next door, and they have their own chickens which were fun for our son.

    The room was tight for us four, but we slept great!

  • Frank was a very accommodating host - I have a disability and going up stairs is difficult so Frank and his wife set up an air mattress downstairs, which was very comfy. We also had a lovely breakfast and conversation with Frank in the morning. I would definitely recommend staying here!

  • Family home stay with horses and home grown eggs! Super close to the highway and not far to the city either. But what made our time most pleasant was taking time to get to know Frank and his lovely family. Everybody here also proved very flexible to our changing plans and we were given valuable tips on what to do in Funen, Odense or how to travel on :-)

  • Awesome place to stay! Frank and his family is very kind, open and great people at all. Further more the area is on the countryside of Denmark and there you can enjoy a very nice environment with fields, horses and the silent as well. Franks house is a beautiful farmers house and the horses stables next to it enlarge it even more. The room itself is very nice, clean and a good place to find a good night and a rest also. Every time again :-)
