Large house in quiet neighborhood in Svendborg, Denmark

We have a nice spacious house in the south of Denmark in an area with many beautifull spots and sorrounded by lots of small islands. We have had several exchanges duing the years all very successfull.

The family:
We are a family of 6 - that is at this point of time, there are only 2 children, Oliver(20) and Tobias(10), still living at home. Our 2 daughters Emma(25) and Clara(23) have left home long ago but still enjoy to travel with us occasionally. Besides us our household also consists of 2 dogs and 6 hens.
The house:
Our house was built in 1950, as a house of two storeys. We have lived here since 1994 and have been renovating the house step by step - now it seems like we are starting all over again.
In 2000 we extended the house with an extra floor by making use of the attic. A few years ago we had the garden and parking area in front of the house renewed, which we enjoy every day and in 2011 we renovated the kitchen for the second time, because our family had outgrown the first kitchen!

in the basement we have a teenage department with two bedrooms and an extra toilet.  When giving the garden and the parkingarea in front of the house a makeover, at the same time we altered the garage, which used to be a part of the basement, to a large entranceroom. Its also in the basement Dan brews his beer and we do our laundry.
The kitchen is on the ground floor and so is the dinning room, the living room and two more bedrooms. The bathroom is also on the ground floor.
The top floor is one large room with books, tv, play station, Nintendo Wii and computers and there
s also an extra bed. In the main we use the top floor to relaxation.
The garden:
We have a garden surrounding the house. In front of the house we have a parking area large enough for two cars and theres also a sheed for the bikes. When giving the area in front of the house the grand tour, we had the change to work with the garden as well, so this area is Lenes place to be creative:).
The back of the garden is sourrunded by a fence, so it`s secure for children as well as dogs. Facing south we have a wonderful wooden terrace we access from the sitting room.
Our house is situated uphill in a quiet neighborhood in walking distance of both the forest, the beach and the centre of the city.
The car
We are open for car Exchange and own a reneault clio sports tourer.
Places to visit in short: Copenhagen, capital of Denmark
There is approximately 180 km - 2 hours drive - to Copenhagen from Svendborg, and 40 km - ½ hours drive - to Odense. The public transportation is excellent.

We love our home and take good care of it. We will take equally good care of your home.
