It will not be our last stay ...

  • 5 of 5

June 22 – July 2 2008

When we arrived we suddenly felt in love with this beautiful house. Our first expression was to be in one of these “Astrid Lindgren Houses” – story of Michel in Kathult. The old house is full of lovely details so we and the children had a lot of things to discover in the house and the nature. We liked to row the red boat on the lake and to swim in the clear waters. We tried to explore the nearby beaches and the holiday park in Kristiansand. The only thing we missed was 5 degrees more on the thermometer. The house itself was best equipped – we missed nothing here. It was our first stay in Norway, but it will not be the last stay here because there are so many places to visit.

A charming and peaceful retreat for any season

  • 5 of 5

The Froland farmhouse is the best of charmingly traditional Norwegian building. Nestled in a private little valley with its own lake, amongst a hand full of other valley residents, it immediately gives the feeling of having “escaped” from the rest of the world.

There was a fireplace in the living room and a wood heated stove in the kitchen with a good supply of wood in a barn beside the house. Since we were there in December, the fireplace was put to good use warming the bottom floor nicely. With bedrooms upstairs and below the main floor, there was plenty of room. The kitchen was modern and well equipped.

In addition to feeling that we received great value for money, the general atmosphere of both the farmhouse and surrounding area was an extra quality that should not be undervalued. With walking trails all around you get the feeling of being further into the countryside than you actually are. Froland, a modern thriving little community has good grocery shopping and Arendal (10 minute drive) has a good selection of restaurants, movies and nightlife.

The owners were friendly, interesting and intelligent in their interactions with us. They respected our privacy while being cheerfully available to answer our questions.

Our experience in Froland left us with a distinctly positive feeling and a desire to return.

Sommer im Frolandhouse

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit im Frolandhouse. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt und die Kinder hatten sehr viel Spaß. Die Ausstattung ist wirklich perfekt. Für eine Sommerurlaub ist es in Froland sehr schön, das atemberaubende Norwegen haben wir aber erst weiter im Norden erlebt.

A perfect get away - highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This house was prefect for us. Really comfortable, spacious and such a homely feel to it. We were given great advise by the owner about places to see and things to do in the area. We thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful nature, but there were also plenty of choice for visiting nearby towns, markets and a brilliant animal park not too far away. We highly recommend this place and would definitely come back another time.

Weihnachten im Frolandhaus

  • 5 of 5

Im Dezember 2015 haben wir als Familie (mit 7 Menschen) die Weihnachtsferien hier verbracht und Weihnachten gefeiert. Wir haben uns sofort zu Hause gefühlt und die Zeit sehr genossen (leider nur ein Tag Schnee)

Das Haus ist großartig, mit allem was man braucht (sogar einem Weihnachtsbaumständer!) Den dazu passenden Baum durften wir uns in Svein und Ellens Wald holen.

Obwohl das Haus nicht groß ist, bietet es bei schlechtem Wetter viele Möglichkeiten, sich an verschiedenen Plätzen aufzuhalten und unterschiedliche Dinge zu tun.

Man kann direkt vom Haus aus loslaufen und eine Reihe schöner Wanderungen machen. Liebelingswanderung: Auf den Blåfjell! Blick bis zum Meer

Als es Schnee gab, sind wir mit Langlaufskiern ebenfalls direkt von der Haustür aus gestartet.

Vielen Dank für die tolle Zeit!

Wunderbare Sommerwochen im Frolandhaus

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen wunderbaren Familiensommerurlaub im Frolandhaus genossen. Es ist ein tolles Haus, es hat an nichts gefehlt. Wir haben drei Wochen mit drei Generationen, davon zeitweise 4 Kinder, verbracht und es war für jeden etwas dabei. Die Kinder haben das tolle Grundstück mit Schuppen, Bach, Wald und viel Wiese besonders genossen. Jeden Tag konnten wir im See baden und im Ruderboot fahren. Ein kinderfreundlicher Sandstrand am Meer ist nur 20 km entfernt. Die Vermieter, Ellen und Svein, sind sehr sympathisch. kinderlieb, hilfsbereit und züruckhaltend.
