Why Kids Love it

This is a wonderful vacation area for kids with beautiful sandy beaches nearby. You can play knights and princesses at Frederiksborg Castle, a real fairytale castle. There is a great garden and lots of outdoor space. Fishing, climbing in a high-rope parks, farm trips to take a ride in a tractor, on a pony or help feed the pigs are just a few local activities. Tivoli Astrid Lindgren’s World is approximately 5 hours from Munkerup and Legoland is around 4 hours away. The house has a bedroom ideal for kids with a bunkbed.

Accommodation Details

A beautiful, completely renovated summerhouse, 500 meter from the waterfront. The house has 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large open kitchen with a woodburning stove in the center, and a large open plan dining room and living room. Bedrooms include 1 with bunkbed, 1 with kingsize bed, 2 with queensize beds and 1 with a full/double bed. Bathrooms are shower only (as typical in Denmark). There is a great garden for playing, including 2 large wooden decks with comfortable outdoor seating areas and a Weber grill.

Style Notes

Simple living. This cozy and relaxing beach house is full of style and atmosphere with Nordic colors and design. It is furnished with a characterful mix of new, more modern furniture, and vintage items found in flea markets. There are open, friendly spaces with beautiful floors throughout the entire house. The large windows on all sides of the house give views of the gardens and the forests. The bathrooms are white with tiles. We love the muted, calming colors, the potted flowers on the deck and the proximity to Denmark’s best beaches.

Jael`s house in Gilleleje is beautifully and thoughtfully (but unfussily ;)) equipped and laid out really well for many people as the communal spaces - kitchen, living room and deck are so generous. Jael herself is also just such a gracious, accommodating and lovely host. What amazed us the most however was the fabulous location and the unbelievable number of things to do within a 30-40 minutes drive - even if you get unlucky with the weather (which we unfortunately did) you cannot run out of exciting and fun adventures to go on with the kids (and grandparents too!). The entire surrounding area with its little towns and the beaches (one of the beaches is especially wonderful for the little ones - no big waves, and lots of shallow tide pools which make for perfect crab catching!) are just stunning. We will surely return to North Zealand for what this time was an incredibly relaxing, sane and fun trip, despite the constant rain!

The Danish Riviera

Head up the Danish coast an hour or more north of Copenhagen and you’ll find Denmark’s summer playground, with white sand beaches, clear water, fairytale castles and pretty fishing villages. Visit the Louisiana art gallery, which has great kids programming and gardens to run in; take boat trips around the coast and over to Sweden, or borrow bikes and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere.
