Our home

A modern, bright penthouse apartment in a building dating from the early 1900’s, the whitewashed walls and wooden floors of our home add to its typically Scandinavian feel. Spread over two floors, it also feels more like a townhouse than an apartment. First floor: hallway; large bathroom, with powershower, washer and dryer; a well-equipped, modern kitchen; guest-room (sleeps 2); dining room area (seats 8). Custom built stairs lead up to the second floor (loft conversion): Two bedrooms (sleep 3); spacious, open-plan living room area. Amazing rooftop views from living and dining areas over beautiful Sandviken – one the most stunning areas of Bergen. Our home is furnished for a family of four, and has all mod-cons – large flatscreen TV, Cable and digital TV, DVD-player, Xbox 360 and Wii consoles, highspeed wifi-access, home telephone, washer, dryer etc.

It may also be possible to arrange for use of our family's mountain lodge during any stay at our home.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Bergen is known as the gateway to the fjords, and to all that the westcoast of Norway has to offer – from amazing nature and wildlife experiences, to great food, culture and nightlife. Our home is located in Sandviken – one of the most attractive and picturesque areas of Bergen. A short 5 minute walk away from the city centre and historical Bryggen (the UNESCO World Heritage harbour area), you really could not be any closer to everything. Sandviken’s charms will be sure to draw you in, with its cobble-stoned, largely pedestrianised streets and small wooden houses winding their way up the hillsides. A 10 minute walk through our neighbourhood will get you to the Fløyen mountain hiking tracks, and to the famous Fløyen vernicular. Sandviken is a quiet and extremely safe neighbourhood, perfect for families travelling with children, and with a variety of charming local cafés and shops. There are also some great parks nearby, and its only a hop-skip-and-jump down to the water.
