Bed and breakfast Svendborg offers easy access to

  • Svendborg’s best sandy beaches
  • a beautiful nature reserve, and
  • the lively market town of Svendborg.

Bordered by forest and close to the sea, we are located on the pictureque island of Thurø. To get a feel for our surroundings, explore Flickr’s images of Thurø.

The immediate surroundings
A 5 minute walk northwards through Peace Forest brings you to tranquil Thurø Bay. Perhaps you can catch a sea trout or two for grilling on your patio. You’ll probably see our 3 Icelandic horses grazing on our 1.5 hectare (3.7 acre) grazing field.

A 5 minute walk southwards through the forest will bring you to the open sea, with a superb view across Lunke Bay towards the islands of Langeland and Tåsinge.

Head eastwards along the coast and you will discover Thurø Rev, a unique nature reserve with rich birdlife, marshland and quiet sandy beaches. Horses and cattle graze here during the summer.
Also eastwards lies Smørmosen, a wide, child-friendly beach with a crazy-golf course, swings, slides and a snack bar.

Head westwards to the sleepy village of Grasten, with excellent seaviews towards Valdemar Castle. Danish author Tom Kristensen spent his final years here. From mid-May to mid-September, you can take a 40 minute vintage boat trip to Svendborg from Grasten on the M/S Helge.
