The Grey Gold

The grey gold


Ærø is described by many as a paradise for seniors. Consequently, more and more people are choosing to settle here and enjoy their retirement. Maybe choosing a quiet secluded life in harmony with nature; or as an active senior involved in several ​​exciting activities. Or for most perhaps: a nice middle ground!

Senior activities
Ærø offers a wealth of opportunities when it comes to senior activities, both for body and mind. Gymnastics, tennis, rowing, golf, hiking, yoga, folk high school, lectures, reading circles, singing, cinema clubs, painting - and many, many more. You can also get involved in voluntary work in local organisations and really make a difference to your fellow islanders of all ages.

Indeed, many of our seniors actually have so much to look forward to - and they love it! Not least because they become part of engaging, inspiring and interesting communities.

Visits by family and friends
One concern that many have when they move to Ærø at a late age, is whether family and friends will come to visit?

Rest assured! Children and grandchildren can become almost addicted to visiting you on 'Paradise Island', because of the countless opportunities for generations to gather for fun holiday activities. And friends will love a weekend vist, with the opportunity for wonderful stays in nature, lovely restaurant visits, a brewery tour or maybe a little jazz concert?

Elderly and health
Are you wondering about options for care and nursing? Ærø offers a wide range of options within the elderly and health area.
