About James

My brother and I are members of a Danish-British family living and working in London. We and our families spend several weeks each at our wonderful Danish summerhouse every summer - but there are plenty of other weeks which remain available.

James purchased this villa in 1991

Why James chose Smidstrup Strand

Our family has owned this amazing home since 1991 and restored it extensively, most recently in 2012. We can enjoy all the delights of the beach scene, the local fishing villages and resort towns, bicycling around the neighbouring coastal villages, and cooking with amazing local produce, as well as spending time in and around down town Copenhagen - often all in the same day.

What makes this villa unique

Our summerhouse enjoys beautiful sea views and to the best of our knowledge more wild natural land than any other summer house in the region. It is private and has plenty of space for children and guests to live comfortably. It is an outstandingly beautiful place, yet easily accessible from Scandinavia's largest city.

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight was enchanted by the house and the beach. The house was charming and comfortable. We felt privacy without being isolated. There was plenty of room for everyone to lounge after an active day exploring the area. We took advatage of the well equipped kitchen for many of our meals. Listening to the waves come in whole failing asleep was special. We would highly recommend this house for a family or group.
