  • Description


    We have a very small minifarm at the edge of town. It's just half hour walk to the store or 5min by car. We have a separat building with comandations for you. We don't have any animals, but our nabours have cows and horses and dogs, so there is ways to work with animals too.

    We are a normal family, two adults 35 and 40years old with two kids (0-5) and my dad at 92 years old. We cherish self-sustainability and we love to restore old things.

    We are Nerds, love Star Wars and Dr Who. Kjetil is a musician and work with making furniture. Adriana is a therapist student and work in health care.

    We are only 1 hour 15 minutes from Oslo by car or train. Lots of nature around and big farms. Great for people interested in bicycling or skis or just exploring Norway.
