About Owner

This is the house where my grandparents and kids lived, after they bought the farm in the early 1930`s.

Later my father took over , and from 1991 I took over this small farm.

This has been my home more or less my whole life, and I am pleased with that..:-)

In 2010 I was lucky and met my wife Ingrid, and we are now living happily here...

Best regards Joar

Owner purchased this house in 1991

A lovely stay in beautiful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had a lovely stay at Joar's home. The house is situated in perfect surroundings for anybody who is looking for a quiet retreat and beautiful, in fact, stunning nature.

Joar and his wife were extremely helpful. They were right there for any question we had. Joar helped us a lot in planning our hikes. There is nothing like local knowledge.

The home is simply furnished but has everything you need. And the fjord fills the view from the windows from every corner of the house.

Beautiful authentic house, with great view

  • 4 of 5

The house is an old fashion house, but very well equipped! The view outside is beautiful and the walks in the area are wonderful. The weather was good and we could sit outside. The owner was very friendly and helpfull. If you like an authentic house with a quit area and beautiful view, this is a perfect house! We loved our stay there very much.

Quiet and authentic stay in a beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

Authentic, quiet house at a beautiful spot in a little village on the Sognefjord. The house is well equipped (dishwasher, oven, tv, dvd player etc). Some of it is a bit dated, but there is everything you need and the furniture and wallpapers from different time periods are also charming. You are staying on the farm of Joar and Ingrid who are very friendly and willing to help when you need anything.

The area is quite remote, so you really need to bring your walking boots and trekking-poles to explore the mountains around the village. There's a gorgeous waterfall and some stunning viewpoints over the fjord and the village. Daytrips outside the village include Bergen (2,5 hrs by car), the lovely town of Vik with its beautiful Stave church (1,5 hrs by ferry), the Glaciers of Fjaerdal (30 mins by ferry and then another 2 hrs by car). But hiking in the mountains really is the main attraction here.

Good value for money.

Nice place and house

  • 5 of 5

The place was deep in a fyjord, surrounded by hills and sea. It was very quite and beautiful. There were several hiking courses which I learned from the owner. Though we had two small kids, we could easily select several hiking courses so that all of us enjoyed. Lakes hidden in the mountains are must-see-places. They are beautiful and quiet and almost mysterious. We visited Vik one day by ferry, which was a good tour of fyjord. The weather was mostly fine but it became quite cold in the morning. We enjoyed using a fire place in the house in the occasion. The stay was very relaxing.

Car: recommended

Old house in a farm, in quiet village near the Sognefjord. You can use it as a base for travelling by the fjords, or simply rest in calm surroundings.

Lots of possibilities to hike in the beautiful nature- there are many paths in the forests and mountains in the area.

If you like fishing or to take a refreshing bath, you can do so in the fjord just a couple of hundred metres away from the house.
