Beautiful House, Serene Surroundings

5 of 5
We had a most enjoyable stay at Bøkhaugen. The house is well-equipped, warm and beautifully furnished in Scandinavian style. Everything worked perfectly and we loved the spacious living areas and modern kitchen. The surroundings are picturesque and the location is perfect for day trips to Osøyro, Bergen, Rosendal and many of the little villages around the fjord. We would highly recommend a visit to the Baroniet Rosendal calling in at the old wooden church at Holdhus on the way. Magne and Ragnhild were wonderful hosts – they couldn't have made us feel more welcome during our stay and we thank them both. We would recommend this lovely house to anyone wanting a peaceful holiday in beautiful surroundings.
