  • Description


    A cosy wooden house in a big garden with a hot tub, sea view in front an the pine forest right on the other side. This is my new home. I am Hanne, turned 50 last summer. But I am not very skilled in doing house and garden work, and will be happy for some helping hands. I love traveling and international guest. Lately I have engaged myself as volunteers for the refugees here in Norway. In these times is important to build international friendships. Other stuff I love : all things culture and art, sci-fi and fantasy, boardgames, larping, theatre, outdoorlife, cycling, ice-bathing and alternative subcultures.

    In summertime the beach is only 15 min down a steep hill. You reach Oslo with bus (50 meters from house) and boat: 45-50 minutes. The forest behind the house is very nice, with walking paths and blueberrys and wild animals! Nesodden, where our house is, is well known for its vibrant cultural life. Lots of artists, festivals, events and galleries.
