Sønderho is being referred to as a cultural pearl with the many well preserved buildings. The buildings in Sønderho are characteristic and the style of building have stubbornly been adhered to. So-called modern houses have been built in the village, but the traditional Fanø cottages still are the more charming ones. Unfortunately, more and more are being used as summer residences which makes it difficult to maintain the number of inhabitants in a way that the village will stay a living community. The opposite also takes place, fortunately, when people move to Sønderho to enjoy the peace and tranquillity. Due to modern technology it is possible to settle in Sønderho and still have a working life that reaches beyond Fanø. The latest initiative in order to preserve a living community is the daycare center, Bakskuld. It provides excellent childcare facilities and makes it more attractive for families with small children to settle down.
