Our home sits at the top of a Norwegian mountain in the middle of fields with 360 views of glorious countryside. If you love the outdoors this is the place for you.
Turn right out of the house and you're in the middle of a Norwegian forest with amazing views and walks, left and you're 5 mins drive to Evje an outdoor sports hub.
THINGS TO DO - SUMMER
There are your choice of freshwater beaches within approx 10 mins drive and we also swim at the fjord 5 mins drive away.
In town there's a wonderful river with white water river rafting and 2 climbing parks plus go carting, a bike park and BMX track, as well as loads of biking trails (you can hire bikes and canoes) to ride or hike.
There's a massive choice of places to fish in the river that runs through Evje as well as your choice of what seems like a million fjords. You can also learn stand up paddling and/ or kayaking, play lazer tag and paintball.
Summers can be glorious with long, warm, sunny days and no clouds.
Our home is set amidst fields with decked seating and fire pit, bbq etc and we often see Roe deer and Elk at the back of the house plus cows come and go. There’s an array of birds, white foxes, hares to name a few off the top of my head. It's escapism at its best and a real tonic from the constant juggling that is modern life.
Kristiansand is 1 hour away and is a hub for sailing with a harbour and sea fishing.
If you go in winter then cross country skiing is firstly free which is excellent but also more glorious scenery. It’s about 5 minutes drive with a selection of other places within about 20 mins. Downhill skiing is about an hour and a half. You should also try snow walking up the mountain too - it's more fun than it sounds, we have 1 male and 1 female snow shoes.
In winter there is lots of beautiful snow - don't underestimate the fun that can be had sledging down the amazing fields upon which the house proudly sits.
THE TOWN - EVJE
Evje is about 5km away (5 mins drive)
It has everything you need whilst being a beautiful place to walk around with supermarkets, shops, bowling and a selection of cafes, bars, restaurants and food outlets.
The house is wood build with 2 wood burning stoves and underfloor heating.
It's 1 double bedroom, 1 twin or queen and 2 single rooms. 2 full bathrooms and 2 separate toilets. We also have 2 of the best quality sofa beds each in their own space (1 in the office the other in the reading room).
We have a reading room for quiet times and a smart TV room with bose surround sound and no neighbours!
We don't have Wi-Fi but Norway is classed as Europe so your call plans and hot spotting work as part of your plan.
We have underfloor heating and 2 wood burners, a fire pit outside and a Weber Bbq.
We adore this place and want people to share the peace we enjoy here. It's pure escapism whilst offering a wonderful place for kids to be fully entertained.
We don't charge a cleaning fee but do ask you leave the place as you'd expect to find it and send a video as you leave as your check out procedure.
