Right in the heart of Svaneke, my apartment is very charming & cosy. It's not luxurious, but a place you can feel home. With a sea-view from the windows & sounds of the sea on windy days.
Check out my photos & guidebook, to see why I fell in love!

My apartment is a cosy place most people find they can immediately relax in. It's on the loft of a house from the 1700's, I am an artist living in my atelier, so there is artwork everywhere and few surfaces that are not painted in bright colours.

I have a lovely view of the sea, and the lighthouse down through the streets of Svaneke. The sea is only a 5 minute walk away in both directions and I can hear the waves crashing on the cliffs on windy days. My home is filled with artwork, secondhand, mismatched furniture, colourful pillows, windows filled with plants and flowers, rows of art books and so on. We haven't designer furniture, or lots of clean white lines, this is an old house.

My parents live on the other side of the house and can always be contacted if you are in need of anything.

You can stay with me as a single guest or as a couple in the winter, only if you are willing to share the place with me.
I generally do not rent out my apartment during the winters, I sometimes make exceptions for easy going people. So if you are an easy-going traveller coming to Bornholm, write me a mail, we can probably figure something out.

I grew up in Canada, so my parents and I speak perfect English as well as quite good French and Danish.

Svaneke, Island of Bornholm, Дания

I live in Svaneke, which is one of the prettiest towns on the island of Bornholm and has won prizes as such. I live just up from the town square, where you will find a general store, two small bar, a brewery/restaurant and a grocery store all are open year round. (There are many other specialty shops open which open only for the the summer season, jewellery shops and other hand-crafted goods, an ice cream parlour, and down a bit further, there is even a gourmet pizzeria (called Bondelas) and my shop, called Art Box Bornholm. Take a look at the guide book, I have listed all these places there and included photos of some of them too.

There is a market day on the square every Saturday from 9-13 and on Wednesday in the summer. It is the best known and most visited market-day on the island. Everything the vendors sell, has to have been grown or made by them, the sellers. There are quality products with charm and pride put into them. There is music and horse carriage rides, and coffee and snacks to be bought too. I recommend our Svaneke Markets days to every visitor to the island! (I have included a photo of our market day in the album.)

Svaneke is called the sunshine town.
Because of it's placing in the Baltic, the wind currents some how keep the rain away from us here. We do have rainy periods of course, but Svaneke literally gets a few hundred hours more sunshine than anywhere else in Northern Europe. We even have fig trees here with most wonderful fruit all through September! Walking around in Svaneke, sometimes feels like you are walking through a museum, or a time bubble. Most of the town is preserved to it's nearly original state. It is charming and colourful and is lived in all year round. It is very hard to get building permits for the smallest things. Our house has to be yellow, with white windowpanes, we have no choice, that is how it was when it was built, and that is how it will be kept.

Svaneke is known for being the town with all the artists. Potters, painters, glass artists and blowers, it has been the place known for it's mix of people, it's acceptance in others. Creativity has room to grow, to expand in such a place. Regardless of age, race, nationality, profession or whatever, there is room for us all, and we have parties where all dance and enjoy themselves whether they've arrived wearing rubber-boots or high-heels.

Every corner of the island is different.
The story goes that when God created the world, he had a bunch of left overs. He (or maybe She..?) wondered what to should do with these tin-bits, and with no better ideas, crunched them all up into a little ball and threw them into the Baltic Sea, and that is Bornholm. That is why we have so many different things here on Bornholm. The 3rd biggest forest in Denmark, the largest waterfall in Denmark, and mulberries and figs which do not normally grow in the Norther parts of Europe.

Bornholm is famous for it's granite. There are 11 different kinds of granite here and it is among the strongest and best in the world. It is also among the world's oldest and parts of it date back 2 billion years ago. 30-40 km high mountains were formed by volcanic activity and movements of the tectonic plates and is now bedrock it is mined from. The granite has created deep sea caves, so far down in the crust that the high atmospheric pressure and heat has tangled magma and many minerals together. This means that the granite is extremely weather resistant and great for outdoor purposes like walls, buildings, tombstones, and so on. Granite and smoked fish were Bornholms two biggest exports and if you find yourself walking the pedestrian streets in Copenhagen, Stockholm or even in Berlin, chances are the streets are made from Bornholmer granite.

There is a great indoor swimming pool in Gudhjem, with a view of the sea through it's massive wall of windows. There is a little sauna in both the men's and the women's. I go swimming here every Sunday. I have never been in another swimming place as wonderful as this one and because they use a mixture of sea salt and little chlorine, to keep the water clean, it's much more gentle on your hair and eyes.

The Northern part is rocky and almost a bit mountainous (HIGH up by Danish standards, but not by Canadian!!) The Northern part is where the Hammershus castle ruins are and where the children's circus resides. (Cirkus Stjerneskud is has performances two weeks in June and is amazing, really worth seeing!!!!!)

The Southern part is where you will find the softest sand in the world (literally, it is used in egg timers because it is so fine, and it squeaks when you walk on it) The Eastern coasts get a lot of sun and are both sandy and rocky., and great for swimming. here are granite cliffs everywhere on Bornholm, but on the Southern Eastern parts they are round and soft and beautiful. They are the symbol of the island and quarries can be found all around Bornholm.

CONCLUSION... (If you weren't already sold!!)
I am bias, but i think Svaneke is the prettiest and most welcoming and also the most easy going town on Bornholm. But if I were to move to another part of Bornholm, I would move to Allinge. Allinge is on the North part and it is a beautiful town. It is not quite as lively as Svaneke, but there is a beautiful harbour and lots of small shops. There is a smoke house open all year round and two big grocery stores. These keep the town alive and like Svaneke it is lived in all year. I find some of the boutiques to be too touristy, where Svaneke is different because we are so many creative people living and there is artisans and crafts people everywhere here. Many of the towns on the island are filled with tourists in the summer and then they are dead in the winter.

I have posted quite a few photos from around the island and suggest you look at them to inspire yourself with where to go and what to see.

I am a Canadian born, full-time artist, photographer and illustrator. My parents are Danish and when i came to the island of Bornholm in 2005, to visit them, I stayed. There is something magical about this island and it kept me here.

По време на престоя ви

HAVE THE PLACE ALONE / DISCOUNT to share the place with me..

We are a warm artist family who offer a unique place to stay. We will gladly take you out for some sight seeing, or leave you alone if that is what you prefer. I have a shop in town and you can always come and hang out and drink some coffee.
When I share the apartment with people it is such as I live on the loft and the guests take my bedroom for sleeping arrangements. We then share the the rest of the homes amenities. It is very cosy to see my guests over coffee in the mornings, tell them about good places to go and so on. But otherwise I am often busy with being overworked at the shop and stay out on the loft so that you will have the place to yourselves.
