Our extended stay here was everything we were hoping for.
'Askhøj' is an absolutely beautiful, historic property and it was a pleasure to live here for several weeks in this impressive apartment. The space features carefully chosen vintage Danish furniture, a top quality kitchen fit out with the best brand equipment and utensils. The presentation was immaculate and perfectly clean. We couldn't fault it. Nis and Pia's attention to detail is impeccable.
The laundry, with washer/dryer, is located next door.
The gardens and outdoor areas are beautifully maintained. We enjoyed spending as much time there as we could. It's a great place to bbq. It was a joy to watch the resident pheasants daily and the other occasional visitors [deer, hare, fox]. Pack your binoculars.
Pia and Nis could not have been more friendly, kind, helpful or thoughtful. From the beginning they were welcoming and helped us feel at home immediately but were always respectful of our privacy. Their generosity began with offering to collect us from the station [due to long flight and baggage] and stocking the kitchen with bread, butter, eggs, milk, skyr, fruit, juice, jam and homemade lamb salami.
Nis would always offer us a ride to the supermarket when he was going. It was always a pleasure to chat with him and be in his company. He was also a great source of information for us as new residents. He never seemed to mind our questions and would often follow up with something for us on the topic.
As for transport to Odense, there is a bus stop 150 m away with an hourly service. The journey takes approx 25 mins. By car it is only 15 mins. It is only a few kilometres to the nearest village of Bellinge which has 2 supermarkets.
Pia and Nis have really created something very special. It has been a wonderful way to begin our new life in Denmark.

Very nice and quiet place. A lot of design furniture and a very well equipped kitchen. Nice location in the country side, but quite close to Odense. Furthermore, friendly and very helpful hosts.
A great escape embedded in a peaceful landscape.
The interior design of the apartment is simply fabulous. We felt at home immediately.

We’d love to come back!
We've spent 2 nights in the superb apartement. It is renovated with so much attention to detail and just a fab place to be. The location is great, quiet and in beautiful landscape. We had a super warm welcome by the friendly hosts.
We hebben genoten van de gastvrijheid bij Pia en Nis. Comfortabel en stijlvol ingericht appartement met veel privacy. Volledig ingerichte keuken, goede stoelen, bedden en verlichting (ook om bij te lezen) en uitstekende wifi. Makkelijk te vinden en ideaal als uitvalsbasis voor het ontdekken van Funen. Een aanrader!
Accomodation exceeded expectations: quiet, spacious, clean, confortable and above all tastefull and beautiful Danish design. Surrounded by apple orchard, part of historic farm / manour - but in separate building with its own garden and terrace + barbecue. All privacy you may want. So well equipped that we choose to prep our own meals. Host is very friendly and hospitable - we felt very welcome. Really really good value for money and even better for heart and soul.
