If you like idyllic village life close to the hustle and bustle of the city, this well-appointed master mason villa is perfect for you. Here you are not far from either a blue flag beach, beech forest or local gourmet places. The house is a master mason's villa built in red stone according to good Danish building practice, and is an aesthetic experience in itself, with art and homemade ceramics. After a good, long night's sleep, you can flip a coin about which exciting homemade coffee mug to try for the day. Take your morning coffee in hand and slip out into the small courtyard garden, where you can enjoy the birds whistling, the dense plants and flowers, and the scent of fresh herbs in the herb bed. You also have free access to the farm's large lawn, terrace and greenhouse with herb garden, where you can pick fresh fruit from the trees to enjoy in one of the many cosy corners. The local area of Ajstrup invites you to enjoy the beautiful nature with sea, soft hills and forest. Here you will find many hiking and running trails, mountain biking routes and opportunities for kayaking. In Norsminde marina, Nordsminde Kro serves renowned gourmet food, and at Fru Møller you can have a delicious lunch and buy local delicacies. Just 15 km away is Aarhus, a European city of culture with everything a child or adult could want. Here you will also find many good restaurants, the Aros art museum, the Old Town, as well as charming cafés and delicious shops. The trip from Ajstrup to Aarhus follows the Marguerite Route past the beautiful Moesgaard Museum, Skovmøllen and the Queen's summer palace, Marselisborg.
Meet your host
Irene & Thyge
Host since September 2022
My name is Irene, I am an anthropologist and I work at Arla, where I am involved in business ethics and sustainability. My husband, Thyge, is a renowned ceramist. We love to travel and have lived in many places and experienced a lot, especially in Asia. We live in the main house on a renovated farm. When you arrive, we have put together a little introduction to the house and the area, and a good bottle of wine on the fridge, ready to welcome you. The area around Ajstrup offers both a lovely beech forest for running and mountain biking and hiking trails, as well as Ajstrup and Rude beach, both child-friendly and great for swimming in the clean water. There are also good places to eat, such as Norsminde Kro, Skovmøllen and Fru Møller. A visit to Aarhus is also a must, and for the keen, the cycle or walk there is stunningly beautiful through the forest and along the water past the worthwhile and renowned Moesgaard Museum.
