Vestergaarden – an old Fanø farmhouse.
It is known, that there has been residential on the site since the year 1683.
Since 1830, the farm has been tree-lined and today appears in external features as it did then.
In 1970, all agricultural operations ceased, buildings and barn were renovated and the farm has since then only been used for accommodation.
Today, Vestergaarden is now home for Kaja and Nils. In addition to full-time work, we try to run a standard Bed and Breakfast with a focus on the hospitable, life-affirming, sustainable, ecological and cozy (hyggelig).
Vestergaarden is very centrally located in Nordby town center:
1000m from the ferry.
75m from Superbrugsen (grocery store) and Hovedgaden (the Main Street) with most shops, restaurants and bike rentals
50m to Busstop.
650m to the marina.
2500m to beach, tennis, golf til strand, tennis-, golf- and minigolf fields.

If case of emergency the best and nearest exit is to open both parts of the windows.
The smoke detectors are connected to other smoke detectors throughout the house. Therefore if you hear an alarm it does not have to be in your room – so avoid panic and hasten slowly.
The bed blankets, which are designed for different seasons, consist of two parts that buttons together, can be used as a winter duvet. If they are disassembled, the thickest is for use in autumn and spring; the thin one is used in summer. You just do as you please.
