  • Description


    I have a small farm at the island Hitra on the coast of Trøndelag, just west of Trondheim in Norway. Short about me, 64, have a degree in civil engineering, have worked as a researcher for a few years. I have had a fish restaurant for many years. I have also worked for a French oil company and have traveled a lot around the world. I have been and still am a also a bnb host. I am social and like to meet new people.

    The farm is located by the sea with beautiful nature around. I live here alone with my cat and five hens. In the summer I have sheep and goats on the farm. In the weekends my cohabitant comes to the farm.

    If you want to experience beautiful nature and sea, you can do it at Hitra. There are many hiking trails nearby. If you have a bicycle or car, you can go on slightly longer trips. If you like fishing then you can do it about 40 m from the house. My place on Hitra is about 20 km from the center of Hitra, called Fillan. There you have several shops, library and museum. You can come by bus to Fillan from Trondheim everyday. I can pick you up there.

    I moved to Hitra 2 years ago and thrive very well here. Here it is a quiet life in harmony with nature and no stress. I have good and nice neighbors
