  • Description


    I am a 62 year old retired female teacher living on a farm on the west coast of Norway. I rent out my land for horses. I have two cats and a little chicken coop. In the old days there were copper mines in the forrest. The ruins are still visible. I have an old wooden roing boat and there are good possibilities for fishing trout.

    My special interest is simple, slow, contemplative, eco-friendly living.

    The farm lies quite isolated, at the edge of a beautiful lake, in an old pine forrest. There are about 500 people in my community. We have two shops; a food store and a popular second hand shop. It takes 7 minutes to drive from my place to the centre of the town called Hatlestrand. A two hour bus ride will bring you to Bergen. The tickets are very affordable.

    I would like a couple to stay here with me. You will have a comfortable guest room with a small fire place and a tiny kitchen.The house has two bathrooms.

    In your working hours you will help clean the house, make dinner, maintain the road and fences, cut the grass, chopping down small trees and start making a fruit and vegetable garden. I will provide for your food. We will share dinner together. I can teach English if you wish so.

    This is the place if you like peace and quiet surrounded by forrest and water.
