Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Steigen - old spacious house

2 living rooms, 6 bedrooms

We have restorated this wonderful old house With much love and care. The oldest part is from 1840 and it has been enlarged two times. Originally it was a farming house, but there has been

a post Office, a grocer, skip expedition and coal trade. Upp to

Three generations have lived here in the same time.

We have reset the house into its ancient style and equiped it

With lots of antic furniture. 188 m 2 makes the house spacious

and confortable. The place is very tranquil and undisturbed.

The scenery on the island is very varied from jagged peaks to sandy beaches. Amazing to see the landscape changing in different light. The mountains are easy to hike and during the

ascent and on the peaks the view is stunning -

new pinnacles and ridges show up and the wide view

across the sea with countless islets and islands and

other mountains.

We also have another home in the vicinity of this, you are also welcome to look at the pictures here

both from the countryside and from the house because of this we

House set to be quite similar with old furniture and

Antiques that match the house.

In summer you can enjoy the midnight sun up here in the winter and from the dance of the Northern Lights are breathtaking.

Please feel welcome to visit our home page for to see more

pictures both of this house and our other holiday house here

on the island and of course the island itselv!

A journey to the local culture

  • 5 of 5

The house was "our style": old, a little bit romantic and based on the local architecture and history. We are living in an old house, that´s why it was interesting to live in an old Norwegian house. Everything told to us, that the landlord and the landlady had done their best that we could enjoy our living.

As our house for a week, this old house gave good opportunities to learn the local culture. Near to the house we could see the local agriculture which was also near to our hearts.

Very important it´s is also notice, that the nature is something original. Our landlady also gave us a guided tour up to the mountain. The view up there was beautiful!

So thank you very much.

Wonderful Christmas stay at Engeloya

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in this old renovated house for one week at Christmas. The house is very well situated between the sea and the mountains and the landscape is simply awesome. The interior of the house is renovated with good taste and with respect for the authenticity of the place. When we arrive, many rooms were decorated for Christmas and there was even a Christmas three set up in the living room of the house. We had booked our holidays in this place also to see the aurora borealis and we were not disappointed. Kerstin is also a great host and she helped us out on some delicious fish and meat for cooking. It was a fantastic experience up north and I'm sure we will return some day, maybe in summer next time.

Sehr gemütliches Haus & wunderschöne Entspannung

  • 5 of 5

Unser Aufenthalt war wirklich sehr schön und entspannend. Im gemütlichen Haus haben wir tolle Gespräche geführt, die gemeinsame Zeit genossen und in der urigen Küche zusammen gekocht. Die idyllische Umgebung lädt zu schönen Spaziergängen ein. Die Natur ist hier einfach wunderschön und bot uns alles, um einfach einmal vom Alltag abschalten zu können und die wirklich wichtigen Dinge im Leben zu genießen - die gemeinsame Zeit.

Kerstin, wir bedanken uns noch einmal ganz herzlich für deine Gastfreundschaft und wertvolle Unterstützung bei allem, was uns auf dem Herzen lag. Wir können diese Unterkunft wirklich nur weiterempfehlen - ein Besuch lohnt sich!

Die Studis, die dem Alltag einmal ganz entfliehen wollten - und es hier wirklich geschafft haben.

Gîte chaleureux dans une Norvège authentique

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans ce gîte. Il s'y dégage un sentiment de quiétude. La maison est spacieuse, décorée avec goût, très propre. Avoir un bateau à disposition est un plus très appréciable...

On the island there is a fort dating from the 2nd World War II, from there

you have a fantastic view of the Lofoten.

The Vikings had one of their centers here on Engeløya, including

evidenced by numerous grave mounds, tombs and other traces of their

Dwellings. In 'Doktorgården', a museum courtyard can

see how the people in the 19th Century lived,

rich collection of artefacts and

Summer cafe with operating with tradtionellen Norwegian pastries.
