  • Description


    We, Femke & Venise, originally from the Netherlands, live on a small farm with our Border Collie Tess, our cat Snoes, 27 sheep, 5 goats and 2 pigs, In Lauvstad on the westcoast of Norway.
    The farm is a combination of farming and tourism. We rent out 2 houses and a tipi.
    You can hike from our backyard to have incredible views, kayak, fish on the fjord or mountainlakes, relax and enjoy the silence and beautiful nature. Every season has it's own charm.
    We have found out that we like people with a bit more life experience...
