A small paradise: removed from the world, it’s a place to simply be happy
The little valley where our house is located on the Askøy island outside Bergen, gives a feeling of stepping back in time. There are tiny farms with sheep and horses walking outside, and the nice trails in the woods with playgrounds. The locals love to come there to go for a stroll, to exercise or walk their dog. Only 1 km/10 min walk from our property there is an historic and idyllic harbor with a museum and cultural house. In the centre of the little village by the harbor there are a restaurant and shops to cover your daily needs and more. From our house there is only a 15 minute drive to the centre of Bergen, while the bus uses 35 min. It is also possible to take a boat from the city centre to the island. Bergen is Norway's second largest city, and the most charming one. Bergen are well known for many tourist attractions, like Bryggen - Bergen's historic harbor that are on the world heritage list. Bergen also have Norway's most vibrant art, club and music scene. The region around Bergen is full of attractions and spectacular nature with fjords, islands, mountains and even glaciers.
