About Lars-Egil Viken

I am a hardworking farmer in my fifties and hope to have the opportunity to both host you and add another string to my bow. I live with Torunn, who works at a bank. We have two sons: 20 and 17 years old. As happy, extroverted people, we would like to do all we can for you to have an enjoyable stay with us. We have good command of English and our youngest can speak a little German, so can help when he's at home. In the winter, we like to travel, for our part, and stay with friends. It is often tricky to find houses that can accommodate several families. We have designed this house with that need in mind.

Lars-Egil Viken purchased this house in 2015

Outstanding location and property for a getaway holiday

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and we really could not have chosen a better place, 5 stars and so much more. Views of meadows and lakes and snow covered mountains from every room. The owner Lars-Engil lived next door and was very helpful; they built the house 2 years ago and it is stunning – spacious, great décor, very well equipped kitchen – a pleasure to cook in, spotless, even a hot tub, log fire and candles on the patio with mountain views, billiards and darts in the cellar. This house would feel spacious with 8 people no problem as the first floor has its own lounge and kitchen too – great for groups – we hope to take our extended family with us next time and stay the whole holiday here – it is such a good base for day tours around beautiful fjords, lakes and mountains – for example only 8 min drive north on E13 and we were high and driving thorough a winter wonderland at Harklau and beyond, two hours to the coast on the E609. Or walk from the house around the village valley with lakes, woods, and beautiful rapids river only two minutes from the house. So worth the 30 minute beautiful drive from Sande – nearest town and restaurant. Self-catering is easy with a well-equipped locally run store in the village. We have no hesitation recommending this property.....you will not be disappointed with any aspect of your stay and you will want to return.

Owner's Response: Ray and his wife were dream guests. Very nice and easy to communicate. They left the house clean and in perfect condition. I can certainly recommend these guests to other hosts. Welcome back anytime. Lars-Egil

Amazing house area and hosts. We truly loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Lars and Torunn's home is set in a beautiful, idyllic valley in Viksdalen. The home is equipped with all modern appliances, is spacious, spotless and can certainly accommodate two families with ease. There are many day trips from the house taking you in every direction where beauty is everywhere. There are waterfalls, lakes, spectacular hiking and gorgeous mountains all within minutes from the home. We had one of the most relaxing and enjoyable stays we have ever had in our 20 years of travel. They were wonderful hosts and we hope to return again someday. Thank you both for everything.....we truly had a wonderful time.

Super clean, stylish place with tons of space in wonderfully peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

My party of 5 had more than enough room in this spacious unit. It was a great way to start out our first visit to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed the location. We took comfortable day trips in each direction finding amazing scenery all around. We also spent some down time just hanging out in the house and we used the Netflix, hot tub, and full kitchen extensively. We also took the row boat out on the lake which was very fun! We were extremely comfortable and we enjoyed having ample space and the excellent ambiance. I made many friends jealous with the pics of the views! Lars was very nice and it was a pleasure meeting him and staying at his home.

Home is very new, upscale, luxurious, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This home is very new, upscale, luxurious, clean and comfortable, just as described only better. We traveled by car and saw much of western Norway and fjords from Bergen to Aslund, in mid May. The house is located in the center of the area in a very pretty and bucolic valley with lakes surrounded by mountains, a rushing river, lush greenery, rock and waterfalls. So beautiful. We only wished that we had been able to spend more time there. Lars was super helpful, such as quickly showing us how to work any of the house equipment that we were unfamiliar with when we arrived.

Amazing views, beautiful home, hot tub

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in this home. We had 4 couples in our group and there was plenty of privacy for everyone. We traveled in May, and the views were beautiful with the snow capped mountains and green pastures. Lars was excellent to work with, he even prepped his boat for us to use even though the weather didn’t permit. Definitely recommend staying here.
