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 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.
As my guest you can use the main house, the room in the annex building and of cause all the various spaces outside the house.
NB: In addition it is possible to rent the house next door. The owners of the neightboring house are my friends and we can arrange for you to use the two houses together for the whole time - or just some of it (if some friends drop by while you are vacationing in Nørlev).

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.
