The artist, Børge Thurup lived in Thurup Hus until 2005. Thurup Hus is an old, country house, built in the 1800’s near the harbour town of Assens in Denmark. The house is now used as an artists’ retreat.
The buildings have been beautifully restored in the original 19th century style. It is surrounded by a huge, old-fashioned kitchen garden true to the period and situated in an exquisite rural setting.
The house is equipped with facilities fit for the 1800’s – a firewood stove, open fireplace, old-fashioned baking oven and petrol lamp lighting. There is, however, also an annex with modern facilities such as a toilet, shower and a washing machine.
