The house is high-quality design and easy to use. But most important: staying in the house makes me feel into contact with the landscape, birds, sun, sea and wind. When leaving the house I am happy, rested and ready for new challenges. Every time!

The space

The holiday home in Nørlev is built in an amazing listed nature area with a view to the sea, dunes and salt marches and the picturesque Hirtshals light tower in the horizon. Nørlev is located in the beautiful beach area of northern Denmark, with a lot of wild life (birds and orchids) and amazing sunsets every night. Several terrasses (one covered) are surrounding the house, bathtub, wifi and all modern kitchen facilities and only 400 meters to the beach.
The holiday home is suitable for 7 persons over 3 years as well as 1 children up to 3 years (special bed available). The holiday home is 115 m² and is build in 2005. You can bring pets. The holiday home has washing machine. Tumble dryer. Further more there is 1 wood-burning stove.
The holiday home is situated on an unique 3000 m² dune site appr. 400 m from the sea. On three of the four sides of the plot you’ll find listed nature area with an amazing flora and fauna and a wonderful topography made by small hill dunes covered with marram grass.
The house – designed by an architect and a landscape architect (my late husband and myself) – fits into the landscape looking at it from the outside and when entering it opens up celebrating the excellent view toward the north with a huge bay window. On the southern side you will find the terrasses leading from the house to the appr. 50 m² great ‘sand box’, an excellent place for children and grown-ups to play. There is room for three cars parking right next to the holiday home.

The neighbourhood is very peaceful and beautiful. The summerhouse is located in a perfect spot. The house itself was very light and clean, comfortable and functional furniture were nice to (EMAIL HIDDEN)munication with the host was easy. This hideaway is an inspiring and unique location to relax and experience the Danish coast and nature. Thanks Ellen!

Very nice house in nice area. Pretty close to the beach. Ellen was quick to answer any of our enquiries although she was traveling. We had our 2 children with and they enjoyed the house and the area.

Our party of three enjoyed a once in a lifetime experience at Ellens spectacular summer house in Northern Denmark. The house is amazing: It is immaculately decorated and is located right behind the dunes, very secluded and calm - a true refuge. It is even more beautiful in reality than in the pictures. We found everything we needed (but remember to bring your own bed sheets). Unfortunately we didn't meet Ellen in person, but she was always available before and during our stay. I would definitely recommend her anytime.

Ellen was a very lovely host who was always available to answer any questions which occured before or during our stay. Her house is an absolutely incredible place, in the middle of the dunes with just a short distance to the beach. It is very well equipped with several (!) beautiful terraces on top, so that you have nothing to worry about. The place 100% fits its description. I can totally recommend to stay there!

Hi, my name is Ellen and I’m professor in landscape architecture and urbanism at the University of Copenhagen. I live in Aarhus with my two teenage sons age 16 and 18 doing my best to bring them up properly.
Besides family, friends and work, I enjoy outdoor life a lot: visiting gardens and cities, jogging along the beach or the nearby forest with the dog and taking early morning swims throughout the whole year (in the winter time naturally followed by a stay in the sauna). And then I have this old fashioned passion for books. I enjoy reading, writing and publishing books.
My house is my refugium and the place where I enjoy the various seasons of the year the most (I also use it for working retreats). I am happy to share my hideaway with you and hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
