The property is very comfortable with modern furnishings and well facilitated. Clean and well maintained. Ideal location for easy travelling to Bergen City Centre and Flesland airport. Travelled to Bergen by driving and parking at Kleppesto and taking the passenger ferry to Bergen (14 min crossing). Enjoyed the Coastal Museum on Oygarden, walking on Floyen and the fjord trip.

Internally it is very comfortable, tastefully decorated and is extremely well equipped. The owners really have thought of visitors' every need here. The location is superb; it is peaceful, has a great vantage point and the town here (Aurlandsvangen, about 2km away) is very attractive, and not at all overcome by tourists. There is a great bakery there, a farm shop and a supermarket that stocks most things. Reviews in this area often say that it's better to base yourself north of the Sognefjord for more options of places to visit, but I can only say this must be a subjective opinion. In this vicinity - on this house's doorstep - you'll find great walking, kayaking, fjord scenery, good food, attractive villages such as Undredal - and much more. In addition it's easy to get to Mundal, Nigardsbreen, Urnes and even the Sognefjellet road from here. In short I'd highly recommend this property!

                                                                                      We've just returned from a weeks stay in this lovely house. We found it exactly as described and had an excellent stay there. It had plenty of room for us and our 2 teenage children (who fought over the top floor bedroom!) and was very well equipped and comfortable. Therese, the owner, could not have been more helpful before we arrived and was a delight to meet in person, pointing us in the right direction for essential supplies, and there was plenty of information regarding local attractions in the house. Location was fabulous - fairly quiet residential area but with very easy and quick walking access to the centre of things. We ate in a lot to keep costs down and the house was well set up for this but had a lovely meal at the fish market on our last evening. Would recommend a trip up Mount Floyen on the funicular railway - stay all day as there's a lot to enjoy up there - and the Edvard Grieg museum is worth a half day visit. Sognefjord In A Nutshell is expensive but probably worth it for the boat trip alone! All in all, a very lovely house in a very pleasant and bustling small city. Would thoroughly recommend for families and groups of friends, bearing in mind that there are 3 floors accessed by wooden stairs so maybe not ideal if you have mobility issues.
