  • Description


    Welcome to our unique home in the heart of Vestfold. This is an old school from 1892, converted to a beautiful home with a large garden. Located 1 hour south of Oslo and 30 minutes from all cities in Vestfold; Holmestrand, Horten, Tønsberg, Sandefjord and Larvik.
    Our family members are Chris (43), Anna (39), Nella (almost 3), and we have a large dog, two cats and some chickens.
    There's a lot going on in our home; cooking, baking, digital projects, technical projects and traditional tasks. Always something interesting to do. The house is mostly restored, has good standards and a lot of space. Some of our planned projects in the future; build a greenhouse, build a new bathroom, restoration, rebuild the old basement, plant trees, paint, restore old doors and windows, you get the picture... We do not oblige our guests to work. You should feel free to join us in our tasks to learn more about our culture, way of life and traditions.
    We speak fluent English.
