We are a family of three, a mother, one teenager and one young adult, living in Etne on the west coast along a beautiful fjord situated between Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) and Trolltunga, about 70 km west of Haugesund. We all work a lot during the summer and have less time to work in our big garden. Mother, Edna, has a pottery studio as well and love to spend time there, and therefore there is less time in the garden and things are growing over our head.
Winter: If you want to stay in our old house and do some maintenance and cutting trees ++. You can stay over a longer periode.

The tree of us love to travel, to meet new people and to get to know different cultures. We will have a good time together, good talks and laughs. You will experience a everyday living in a Norwegian family. We speak Norwegian, English, German, Swiss-german and some Italian. You can go fishing either from land or boat, hike in wonderful mountain area, cycle along the beautiful fjord or just relax and enjoy the view from our property. After work we make food - maybe together - all home made, and have a good meal together. In the evening you are free to do your own thing, just relax by yourself or together with us. We love to play board games.
There are a lot of things that needs to be done in our big garden. Mostly fighting the weeds, mow lawn, cut trees, wash and paint a wooden fence, paint house (one side) etc. You should be able to use tools. If you are handy and have experience in building we have things to be build as well.
You can stay in a privat guest room (if you are good friends there are place for two) and share bathroom, living room and kitchen with the family. Or in a separate house (if it is available, we rent out to guests) and you eat together with us.
There are not much public transport, but it is possible to come without a car, but it can be more convenient to have a car.
