It's quiet and natural and the perfect place to relax. It feels like you're in the wilderness, and yet a short drive to shops and ferries to Stavanger, and easy drives to plenty of beaches, sites and walks. We could have happily just relaxed in this house our entire fortnight, but it's also a perfect base for seeing the mountains and forests and fjords of this part of norway. There's also plenty to do with children, as Ronnie has enough toys for a hundred kids and even a trampoline outside. You can walk to a small beach or go out on the lake itself and we didn't want to leave! We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone who wants a "natural" holiday but doesn't want to be too far away from civilisation. Only thing to be aware of is that the directions should make it clearer how difficult it is to get to! It was fine for us (even with a two year old) and there are wheelbarrows to help with suitcases, but it is an approximately 10 minute walk from the car park with some steep bits... also, if we'd have known how many toys were at the house we could have saved on suitcase space!
