Langhoff & Juul: a boutique hotel on the sea shore

The old port town of Ebeltoft is a summer favourite. But is it great only in summer? Our little blogger collective travelled to Denmark to find out. Turns out the little town with the cobbled streets and medieval houses is sweet also in December. During [...]
