Sannes Familiecamping - Camping with a sea view - close to Gudhjem
With almost tropical vegetation, and sandy beaches nestled between steep cliff walls, it's as if all the most beautiful aspects of Bornholm have gathered together around Sannes Familiecamping near Gudhjem.
We, that is to say Susanne and Allan, purchased Kongens Mark Camping in 1989, whereupon we changed the name to Sannes Familiecamping.
From being a humble little campsite awarded just one star by the Danish Camping Board, the site has grown into the highest-ranking campsite on Bornholm – 4 stars, with a high quality level within that rank according to the Camping Board's yearly quality assessment. This means quite a lot, as only 16 of the Camping Board-approved campsites have achieved the 4-star classification at all.
The most recent development here was the purchase of the adjoining campsite Strandlunden Familiecamping on March 1st, 2009.
It was a tired, run-down site with facilities dating back to the 1960s, including some converted henhouses! The campsite, which is right next-door to ours, looked more like a jungle than anything else, after 30 years without proper land management.
When we bought the next-door campsite in 2009, we chopped down a great many trees and bushes, and removed about 150 tons of roots. We put in new electricity and water supplies throughout the site, as well as good roads. Some beautiful large groups of rocks, previously hidden under the wilderness, were made visible, and the changes have meant that there is now a sea view from the vast majority of the pitches, sometimes even as far as Christiansø Island. The “henhouse” has been replaced by a brand-new service building with all mod cons, leading out onto a large terrace with a huge BBQ.
The extension to our site means that we now have a lot more beautiful pitches in a larger area with a difference in level of 24 metres.
The sweeping renovations convinced the Camping Board to upgrade the new half of the campsite, so that they are now officially one site.
We look forward to seeing you here on Bornholm and showing you how beautifully everything has turned out.
Susanne and Allan
