Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Våg - old spacious house

2 living rooms, 6 bedrooms

We have restorated this wonderful old house With much love and care. The oldest part is from 1840 and it has been enlarged two times. Originally it was a farming house, but there has been

a post Office, a grocer, skip expedition and coal trade. Upp to

Three generations have lived here in the same time.

We have reset the house into its ancient style and equiped it

With lots of antic furniture. 188 m 2 makes the house spacious

and confortable. The place is very tranquil and undisturbed.

The scenery on the island is very varied from jagged peaks to sandy beaches. Amazing to see the landscape changing in different light. The mountains are easy to hike and during the

ascent and on the peaks the view is stunning -

new pinnacles and ridges show up and the wide view

across the sea with countless islets and islands and

other mountains.

We also have another home in the vicinity of this, you are also welcome to look at the pictures here

both from the countryside and from the house because of this we

House set to be quite similar with old furniture and

Antiques that match the house.

In summer you can enjoy the midnight sun up here in the winter and from the dance of the Northern Lights are breathtaking.

Please feel welcome to visit our home page for to see more

pictures both of this house and our other holiday house here

on the island and of course the island itselv!


You can rent a 17 feet boat with a 40 hp motor for 2000,-NOK per week or 400,- per day.

The rental prices are for up to 4 persons. Each further person costs 100,- per night. This is just for to cover electricity and other costs.

Prachtig gelegen huis op schitterende locatie

  • 5 of 5

Na een paar dagen vakantie op de Lofoten was dit een heerlijke plek om onze vakantie verder te zetten. Het huis is heel rustig gelegen en heeft een fantastisch uitzicht op de baai. Schitterend gerenoveerd en met alles wat nodig is om een vakantie geslaagd te maken.

In de omgeving veel mogelijkheden om mooie wandelingen te maken en een prachtig strand om te genieten bij heerlijk zomerweer.

Heel vriendelijke en behulpzame eigenaars.

Voor ons een top vakantie!

A journey to the local culture

  • 5 of 5

The house was "our style": old, a little bit romantic and based on the local architecture and history. We are living in an old house, that´s why it was interesting to live in an old Norwegian house. Everything told to us, that the landlord and the landlady had done their best that we could enjoy our living.

As our house for a week, this old house gave good opportunities to learn the local culture. Near to the house we could see the local agriculture which was also near to our hearts.

Very important it´s is also notice, that the nature is something original. Our landlady also gave us a guided tour up to the mountain. The view up there was beautiful!

So thank you very much.

Norwegen at its best

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zu zweit eine wunderschöne Woche in dem tollen Ferienhaus auf Engeloya verbracht, das viel Platz bietet. Das stilvoll bis ins Detail hergerichtete alte Haus mit Charakter ist liebevoll eingerichtet und perfekt und sehr praktisch ausgestattet - angepasst an die große Bettenzahl. Es hat an nichts gefehlt und alles hat super funktioniert. Die Fotos versprechen nicht zu viel. Von der großen Terrasse hat man einen fantastischen Blick. Auch im Garten gab es viel zu entdecken. Die Vermieterin ist ungeheuer hilfsbereit und war telefonisch immer erreichbar.

Auf Engeloya gibt es trotz der überschaubaren Größe viel zu unternehmen für Natur- und Kulturliebhaber. Seeadler waren auf unseren Ausflügen in der näheren Umgebung an der Küste und in den Bergen täglich zu sehen. Das Licht ist bezaubernd. Der Aufenthalt war sehr entspannend und wir haben ihn rundherum genossen.

nichts hätte besser laufen können

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus und die Vermieterin haben sehr zu einem tollen Urlaub in Norwegen beigetragen. Wir waren sehr begeistert von der schönen Einrichtung und auch wichtige Dinge sind vorhanden: Waschmaschine, Wäscheständer, Spülmaschine, DVD-Player. Selbst in der Küche sind Gewürze und andere nützliche Dinge bereitgestellt.

Die Vermieterin war immer für alle möglichen Fragen erreichbar, hat auch selbst von möglichen Unternehmungen erzählt und sie bei Bedarf selbst organisiert. Wenn die Polarlichter zu sehen waren, hat sie uns direkt eine SMS geschickt :)

Ich wüsste nichts, was besser hätte laufen können!

Wonderful Christmas stay at Engeloya

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in this old renovated house for one week at Christmas. The house is very well situated between the sea and the mountains and the landscape is simply awesome. The interior of the house is renovated with good taste and with respect for the authenticity of the place. When we arrive, many rooms were decorated for Christmas and there was even a Christmas three set up in the living room of the house. We had booked our holidays in this place also to see the aurora borealis and we were not disappointed. Kerstin is also a great host and she helped us out on some delicious fish and meat for cooking. It was a fantastic experience up north and I'm sure we will return some day, maybe in summer next time.

On the island there is a fort dating from the 2nd World War II, from there

you have a fantastic view of the Lofoten.

The Vikings had one of their centers here on Engeløya, including

evidenced by numerous grave mounds, tombs and other traces of their

Dwellings. In 'Doktorgården', a museum courtyard can

see how the people in the 19th Century lived,

rich collection of artefacts and

Summer cafe with operating with tradtionellen Norwegian pastries.
