Danish cottages in Bornholm

Bornholm is the most eastern part of Denmark and is considered by many to be the most beautiful island - ideal for adventure holidays in a natural paradise. Despite the small size of this island, it is characterised by an attractive, varied landscape found nowhere else.

These are undoubtedly some of the best beaches in all of Europe! The island consists of beautiful nature, many sights, short distances and idyllic villages with herring smokehouses, which are characteristic for this island.
