About Sissel Thorsen

We are a family from Norway that loves to travel but our favorite place is "Langeskjaer" which translate to the "small, long island."

Sissel Thorsen purchased this house in 2008

Why Sissel Thorsen chose Sandefjord

The island has a rich history as a smugglers lair and a WWWII resistance base. Originally bought by our great grandfather for a fishing base, it has been upgraded through the years and is now livable year round.

What makes this house unique

Being on an island with the convenience of not having to get in the boat every time you want to run to the store for some food/wine or go out for dinner is priceless! The fact that Sandefjord is so easy to get to from anywhere in the world means we have access and can use it on a regular basis. I have never heard anyone regret spending time on the island!
