Last summer I spent about a month with my family in Denmark on the small island of Thurø, off the larger island of Funen. Funen (pronounced fyun, sort of) is often referred to at the “garden island” as it’s mostly agricultural and well-populated by castles and landscapes ranging from formal gardens to wilderness. The largest town on Funen is the birthplace of Hans Christian Anderson, by the way.
Our home was the vicarage of a hundreds of years old church, and explorations of local areas included the adjacent tiny island of Ærø with the most enchanting residences, all zero lot line and with perhaps the greatest concentration of diversity of entry designs any place on earth.
Below are twelve of the nearly fifty I photographed in one afternoon (and I missed far more than a photographed). Click on any of them for more detail and a slideshow.
