Set in the picturesque surroundings of Copenhagen’s countryside, about 10 miles outside Fåborg, is the fairytail-like boutique Inn known as, Falsled Kro.
Established in 1744, the simple, whitewashed, thatched-roof cottage is an exclusive Relais & Château property, with 19 rooms and an award-winning restaurant which serves chic, regional cuisine.
The design retains an old world charm with modern luxuries and insanely romantic settings.
Step into the lobby, aka the “living room” and you’ll be surrounded by oil paintings on the walls, antique liquor cabinets, a large brick fireplace and unique, classic Danish furniture. Even though its style is traditional, with an old-world charm, the owners have managed to inject a coolness factor and made this space very instagram-worthy. The winter time makes this space extra cosy or “Hygee” as its referred to in Denmark.
Falsled Kro is surrounded by gardens and has a view overlooking the ocean. What separates this luxury retreat from others, really comes down to the food. The kitchen Almanac is a chef’s and dream. Everything served is based on seasonal and local produce. They even have a small vegetable and herb garden on the property… making this a modern, healthy and culturally rich experience for those fortunate enough to dine here.
Dinner here is somewhat of an event, staged by multiple spaces and surprises. First you are welcomed into the living room where you can enjoy a glass of Pinot Champagne and your bite size amuse bouche by the fireplace. Next, walk through a dinning room with soft white-washed, antique wooden floors past the kitchen with the wood-fire open oven. Finally, you are seated in the glass enclosed dinning room, overlooking the garden and ocean in the distance. Select from 4 or 6 course feast and choose to include the wine pairing too.
Enjoy everything from Jerusalem artichoke compote with apples and bacon in the Fall, to New potatoes with shrimps and chives in the summer.
Its a gastronomic experience that happens maybe once in a lifetime if you’re lucky.
The rooms also sets Falsled Kro apart from its competitors, with the options of suites and large rooms – which are more like a terrace than a typical hotel room. Welcomed by your own fireplace and living room downstairs, the bedroom is on the mezzanine, creating a feeling of space, which of course, is always a luxury.
A nice touch is the amazing space spa products in the bathroom. These details always make a big difference, with a reminder that each element to this property has thought and care behind it.
If you’re looking for something unique that’s perfect year-round,Falsled Kro has to be on the list. Indulge, and take someone special with you to spoil.
