Our place is a place of peace. In the heart of Vestfold in eastern Norway, old viking territory, is our small horse farm. Close to Tønsberg, Norways oldest city, in a small town called Revetal, surrounded by fields and forests, facing the sun, is a beautiful place to spend some time. Here you can be a part of a tribe and join our community.
This is a down to earth place. We grow our own vegetables. Our horses live in a paddock paradise with no iron. They are barefoot and we ride them bitless.
About us: The household consists of mum Line and father Jan-Erik in their 50’s, 3 sisters Anca 15, Sara 17 and Synne 20 years old, their older brother Mats 23, is a police student living in another city.
Our 2 great danes Emma&Lacie lives in the house with us and our 3 cats. We’re an easy going bunch and Villa Solsiden is a peaceful place, in our opinion, a little slice of heaven on earth.
July is for family, so we are not able to host anyone during this month.

We live in a area rich of old history.
You will learn a lot of different things, there is always many types of work that we need to get done.
You’ll be expected to work 20 - 25 hours a week in exchange for room, meals and cultural input such as a visit to the viking museum, a trip to «Worlds end» on the island of Tjøme amongst others. Every evening we gather in the large kitchen for dinner, and the food here is excellent. We enjoy meat, gluten, dairy, the occational chocolate etc. So folks with fussy dietary requirements may as well stop reading here.
