100 year old spacious family home home swap

Sorø is 45 minutes by fast train to Copenhagen and we live 5 mins from the train station on foot.

Our house is 100 years old and a very spacious, comfortable family home, completely renovated in 2002/2003 with a lovely big garden and orangerie. The house had a new roof in summer 2015, so now we have huge skylights in all the bedrooms upstairs and the upstairs living room area.

The house is well equipped with wireless internet/Apple TV/Netflix and plenty of DVDs and books. We also have bikes which you can borrow and a car.


About the location

Sorø is a cosy old town with all amenities including a cute cinema, restaurants and shops. Sorø is surrounded by lakes and forests - you can walk to the forest from our house in 2 minutes and the nearest lake is a 5-10 minute walk, where you can swim in the summer at the small lake beach near the town, and the nearest sea beach is a 30 minute drive.

There is a very old school - Sorø Akademi - in the town, which is located next to Sorø church. The school is located next to the lake and the park next to the school is beautiful.

There is a jazz festival in Sorø in July - have a look at http://www.soroejazz.dk/
and an International Classical music festival in August.

There is a lovely Art Museum in Sorø http://www.sorokunstmuseum.dk/en and also a small town museum.

There is a new park in Sorø next to the lake 'Parnas' where you can rent kayaks/paddleboards/mountain bikes etc. Parnas is wonderful in the summer, you can take a picnic and swim in the lake there - have a look at www.parnas.dk
You can cycle to Parnas in 10 minutes from our house.
