Boat w/motor and some fishing equipment is available for guests. The cottage has excellent outdoor areas, including a veranda, a dock with diving board and nature.

The space

Other things to note
Risør is a beautiful small town on the south-eastern coast of Norway, known for its heritage and galleries. The intimate environment in Risør is perfect for the chamber music festival which draws both Norwegian and international musicians and audiences in the month of June, and the Villvin Festival in July. In August, boat lovers flock to Risør to enjoy the elegant lines and traditional workmanship of Europe's largest collection of wooden boats during the Wooden Boat Festival; www.visitnorway.com/event/ris%C3%B8r-wooden-boat-festival-2017/681

"Risørflekken" is an old landmark from the time when sailing vessels dominated the seas. On a nice day the landmark can be seen twelve nautical miles of the shore. This gave the sailors the right position to sail straight in to Risør harbour. Till this day, "Risørflekken" is used by Risør's fishermen to locate their favourite fishing spots. Not only is "Risørflekken" nice to look at, it is also nice to look from. The view from "Risørflekken" is breathtaking. (The spot is painted white with chalk).

"The white town by Skagerrak" is the melting pot of "Sørlandet". Risør has the romantic "Sørland" houses which stand shoulder to shoulder around the beautiful harbour.

The architecture in Risør bears witness to 300 years of development, and the town is known for its beautifully preserved wooden buildings. The town first flourished as a port for exporting timber to the Netherlands. A memorial to this era is the elegant Baroque style church, "The Church of the Holy Spirit", built in 1647.
