What is Landfolk?
Learn more about Landfolk and our story of how we got to where we are today.
We do that by finding and handpicking the most wonderful and unique summer houses every day. We believe aesthetics, quality, scenic locations and personality are important parts of any vacation and getaway.
Not only are our summer houses places you would not otherwise have access to. Our ambition is also to make it the most delightful experience to find and book them on our platform.
At the same time, we create a community for our hosts, where we make it easy, fun and inspiring to be a summer house owner.
The (very short) story of Landfolk, so far …
Founded in Aarhus, Denmark
Landfolk was founded on 1 February 2021 by seven former colleagues from Airbnb. The idea was born out of a love for vacationing in summer houses, but also the personal frustration of what a tedious and uninspiring experience it more often than not was to find and book a unique summer house.
100 summer houses live
Landfolk would never be where it is today if not for our first brave hosts. We owe so much to them for their trust and willingness to join Landfolk even before there was a platform.
We move into the Landfolk HQ
Every great startup story begins in a basement or garage, right? Ours did too, so it was a game changer when we moved into a real office in the old and newly renovated Sct. Joseph’s Hospital in one of the oldest and most beautiful neighborhoods of Aarhus.
Our launch in Germany
Going live with our platform in the German language was a big milestone. We believe travel is changing across the globe and we want to help a new generation of city dwellers to reconnect with the people they love in beautiful surroundings and bring them closer to nature.
We receive a big investment
Our first investment is a great validation of Landfolk’s vision to build the world’s most preferred hospitality brand of second homes. It gave us bigger wings to fulfill our ambitious goals with a 25 people strong team!
