Forty years of Sol og Strand

A holiday home located in coastal dune heathland in Lyngså, south of Sæby, grew into Sol og Strand Feriehusudlejning A/S, which today has 21 local offices managing the bookings of approximately 6,500 holiday homes. Never in their wildest dreams did Margit or Kjeld Andersen think that renting their holiday home while they spent their honeymoon in Lapland would turn into a major business.
40 år med Sol og Strand
While on their honeymoon, Kjeld pondered over whether they could find some people from near or far who would like to spend their holidays in Danish holiday homes that were unused for most of the year. Was there a way to bring holiday visitors and holiday home owners together and could he help with this?

The couple established a small holiday home rental company in 1979 and the company developed rapidly. Today Sol og Strand Feriehusudlejning A/S is one of the largest holiday home rental agencies in Denmark.

In addition to renting holiday homes, holiday visitors from all over the world can receive news about holidays in Denmark, information about holiday areas and nearby attractions, purchase admissions to selected attractions and read what other holiday visitors have to say about their stay in the holiday homes.

Learn about Sol og Strand’s history and how two Northern Jutlanders, using enthusiasm, determination, hard work and a little help from Mikhail Gorbachev, the then president of the Soviet Union, managed to create Sol og Strand Feriehusudlejning A/S.

”Sol og Strand Fonden ved Margit og Kjeld”

In 2019, married couple Margit og Kjeld Andersen were able to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Sol og Strand Feriehusudlejning A/S, the company they like to call their “third child”. The couple passionately wanted to ensure that their life’s work would continue and would remain Danish-owned, so they decided to transfer the share majority to a foundation – “Sol og Strand Fonden ved Margit og Kjeld”. They were also motivated by an altruistic desire and ensured that the foundation would support humanitarian causes and local activities.


Learn more about Margit og Kjeld Andersen’s thinking behind the establishment of the foundation, which ensures that a Sol og Strand holiday is a holiday with a heart of gold for holiday home owners, holiday visitors and Sol og Strand employees.
