Our home has all facilities and great lighting with a glimpse of the sea, which is a few minutes walk from the house. There's a terrace and garden at the back, where the sun enters in the morning. At the front of the house, there's a garden + a balcony were we enjoy afternoons and the Norwegian late sunset.

Who we are

  1. I am an anthropologist/journalist and mother of two well-behaved boys aged 12 and 20. One of my great interests is getting to know new places and new people, a passion shared by my sons. For holidays, we prefer sunny and warm places. Our number one activity in winter is skiing. During our summer holidays, we like to go swimming, kayaking, climbing, rafting or visit places like motor parks etc.

    As we have allergies, we need cat and cigarette free accomodation, and offer the same in return. We would like to be within walking distance of the beach and/or have a pool.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

This is a small village in the fiord of Oslo (one hour from capital) where people come to spend their holidays. In winter, it's relatively quiet. From Easter onwards, people from nearby cities start making their weekend get-aways or summer holidays. Our hamlet consists of four year-round homes and a few cottages. It's situated a five minute walk from the beach, between the towns of Moss and Fredrikstad. There are plenty of walking/hiking opportunities, all kinds of skiing, lakes or the sea for canoeing/kayaking, as well as pictoresque biking routes through forests and along the seaside. The fiord of Oslo is famous for its great fishing opportunities and unique marine landscape.

Fredrikstad - a town of 72.000 inhabitants and more than a thousand little islands - is well-known for it's film and cultural life; this is the birth town of Hollywood director Harald Zwart. It's about 20 mins by car from my house. For information about the town, check out this link:

In the opposite direction, you'll find Moss, another seaside village in the Oslo fiord, well known for its beaches, galleries and mansions.

The capital of Norway, Oslo, is less than an hour's drive from the house. Oslo is probably the greenest capital of Europe, although it tends to pride itself mainly on being a coastal capital with a thriving boat life. You'll find a variety of museums, galleries, restaurants and parks, as well as the nature on your doorstep. This is also home of the Nobel Peace Centre.

There are three airports not far from here:
Oslo Torp Sandefjord (1h20min) - KLM, Nextjet, Ryanair, Norwegian, Widerøe, Wizzair
Oslo Gardermoen (2h) - all companies
Oslo Moss Rygge (15 mins) - Ryan air + Norwegian
