In the middle of Naturdestination Skovsgaard's 250 hectares of wild grazing land, Påøgård is located in scenic surroundings. In the protected wild grazing area, wildlife is allowed to live on its own terms, so it is a natural part of living at Påøgård that cattle and wild horses can pass by and take a rest in the courtyard of the house.

The house has a distinctive red front door and charming mullioned windows. Inside, you'll find old, charming wooden floors and a wood-burning stove for cozy moments. This place is ideal for families who want to experience nature up close. Please note that both rooms with bunk beds are walk-throughs to their respective double rooms.

Outside the house there is a wonderful view of the protected meadows, a perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or watch the sun set after a long day of adventure.

The house is located a few kilometers from Naturdestination Skovsgaard's main buildings and close to Påø Beach - an ideal place for a dip on a hot summer day. The area is spectacular for long walks, picnics and bird watching.

It is very important that all pets are kept on a leash when in the wild grazing area. As Påøgård is located inside the wild grazing area, pets must be kept on a leash at all times.

Skovsgaard Gods, also known as Natur Destination Skovsgaard, is located on southern Langeland in scenic surroundings. Skovsgaard is today owned by Danmarks Naturfond, which was founded by the Danish Society for Nature Conservation. For this, we owe a big thank you to a very special woman.

Miss Ellen Fuglede was the last and only heir to Naturdestination Skovsgaard. As she had no heirs, it was very important to her that the site could be preserved as a whole. Therefore, she bequeathed the estate and its 389 hectares to the Danish Society for Nature Conservation, which was later taken over by the Danish Nature Foundation. The legacy to the foundation is a gift, but also a task. For the unmarried Miss Fuglede, the nature around Naturdestination Skovsgaard was the most precious thing she owned, and therefore it was very important to her that the property and nature remained in nature-conserving hands.

Today, you can visit Naturdestination Skovsgaard, which is filled with exciting and wild nature experiences for families with children and nature enthusiasts. Here you can also explore the estate's 400 hectares of land, 245 of which are set aside for protected meadows and wild grazing with cattle and wild horses.

We hope you enjoy your stay at Påøgård, one of three charming farmhouses on Skovsgaard's land.

The house is part of an old farm complex and has been beautifully renovated inside. It is perfectly situated between hills, forest and sea. The cattle and wild horses regularly pass by the house and it seems as if they sometimes look in through the window. Deer, stags, hares, pheasants and various other wild birds can also be seen every day. If you are looking for peace and seclusion, you will find a natural paradise here. There are enough beds for 12 people, but it might be a bit cramped, especially as there is only one small but fine bathroom and possibly not enough crockery. The house is very comfortably furnished and is a joy in any weather. Children can explore the surroundings and discover a lot, only the necessary distance to the animals should be maintained. In the evening you can sit together at the large table, play games and round off the day.
