  • Description

    Description

    Enjoy nature, embrace life and silence are the best ways to describe this mini-project out in the Norwegian forest overlooking the inland "fjord" - Krøderfjorden.

    I am living here with my dog, cats and hens. My idea is to build up a place for small scale retreating.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is a copy of a traditional Norwegian old "husmannsplass". The buildings are old, but top modern inside. Feedback from visitors are "wow", "this is a beautiful place", a "little Eden", "listen to the sound of silence....." and that people get happy feet here!
    Still situated in the forrest, we have a magnificent view. We can look over to Valdres, Hallingdal og Nore and Uvdal. It you turn around you can see to Hønefoss and Sundvolden. And, the old building, this "tun" is a snapshot of "inland old norway".

    Tourist places as Blaafargeverket, Hadeland glassverk, the Bearpark in Flå and galleries places can be visited.
    I cook traditional Norwegian plates as well as "usual" international dinners, and my named is Kristin.

    This place is somewhat remote and still central, near to cities. 1,5 hours driving to Oslo and 1 hour drive to Drammen.
