Large comfortable house near lake and forest in Sorø, Denmark. An hour by car or direct train to Copenhagen.

Hello and welcome to the lovely old town of Sorø.

Sorø was founded in 1142 between the three lakes - Sorø lake, Pedersborg lake and Tuel lake.
The town has an old historic center with the old monastery church and "Sorø academy" placed next to Sorø lake as a beautiful tourist attraction. Also Sorø square is worth a visit, here you can sit and watch the life of the town, maybe with a sausage from the local "sausage man", or an icecream from "Emils chocolate", voted the best icecream shop in the region of Zealand.
