Idyllic house

5 of 5
My self, my husband, and our 3 children spent 10 days at this house. The property was immaculately clean and had every home comfort you could wish for. The situation of the house gave us amazing views from the balcony, and it was so relaxing and peaceful to sit and marvel at the views. The Hot tub was a much welcomed treat at the end of our days out and was the icing on the cake to this property. Jostein and his wife were always on hand, but never obtrusive. We spent wonderful days out in : Bergen, Flam, Lygra, canoeing at Bruvoll, and took a wonderful boat trip from Bergen up Oysterfjord, as well as doing some of the local walks from the house's information pack. All in all, everything you could wish for in a holiday home.

Idealic, quiet, spacious and comfortable accommodation

4 of 5
A lovely rural setting with fantastic views. 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.
