Please Share: Open House at Ærø This Weekend

Dear Copenhagen Friend, Can you help? I would be so happy if you could help us find a new owner of this beautiful parish farm at Danish island Ærø.

They have enjoyed very much spending time at the estate, but now they have decided to let someone else have the pleasure. The parish farm includes an exquisite and well furnished house of 304 square meters, and also two stable buildings. I...

One of Alfredo's suggestions is to design cars inside out. That is, sta...
