Enjoy a break with the family at a holiday home in Ærø
Pronounced "air-rue", Ærø is a much loved island that is part of the South Funen Archipelago in Denmark. Almost every corner of the island affords seaviews across to the islands of Birkholm and Drejoe. All of Ærø's 16 villages were built to be concealed from potential invaders and even the church spires were designed to be invisible from the sea. Today, Ærø has one of the world's largest solar power plants, modern wind farms and traditional U-shaped farms as well as a selection of holiday houses, holiday homes and holiday rental options.
The magic of the sea
Ærøskøbing, Søby and Marstal all have sandy beaches and shallow waters which are great for families with kids who can even rent a bike and explore the local villages. The Archipelago Way is a pleasant walking experience, as is the scenic golf course by the lighthouse which is surrounded by water. Kite surfing and other watersports are popular activities at Det Lille Hav beach. Ærø is renowned for its sea trout and a fishing licence can be obtained from the tourist office who will be happy to suggest the best fishing spots. Other attractions include Voderup Klint, a solitary area marked by unusual stepped cliffs of Cyprina clay and the wild bird breeding ground of Næbbet. For accommodation choices, consider the hamlets of Ommelshoved and Kleven og Strandbyen where you can book a variety of holiday houses, holiday apartments and holiday rentals.
With its market town atmosphere, 18th century architecture and cobbled streets, the historic centre of the island, Ærøskøbing, is right out of a Hans Christian Andersen tale. Holiday homes, holiday apartments and holiday rentals abound here and the summers are a great time to visit when accordion music, classical concerts and even opera takes place. Often called "Skipper Village" because of the many sailors who have made it their home, Marstal finds mention in Carsten Jensen's novel We, The Drowned, a touching story describing the town's maritime history. The Marstal Søfartsmuseum pays tribute to the town's tenacious seafaring history.
