About This Listing
On farm Breigutu gård you’ll experience a holiday like holidays in Norway are meant to be. With unlimited fishing, hiking, campfires and the enjoyment of the unspoiled Norwegian nature. On the grounds, you can rent the four persons cabin Benteros or the spacious apartment for six. On the nearby summer farm the traditional cabin Silkeros (four persons) is for rent. The cabins and the apartment all echo the traditional Norwegian style, with the use of natural materials, Scandinavian colours and modern comfort. The Dutch residents of Breigutu gård are more then happy to show you the surroundings or to teach you how to (fly)fish, look for chanterelles or how to cook a traditional Norwegian dish.
On the grounds of Breigutu farm you find the cabin named Benteros. This traditional Norwegian hytte was built in the 19th century and has many original features. The floor, for example, is made of the thick, wide boards of just one tree! The cabin houses four people and offers:
•A 20 m2 living room with a comfortable seating area, wood burner (free wood is supplied) and dining table.
•Two bedrooms with a double bed.
•A kitchen with all basic appliances.
•A private terrace.
•Plenty of power sockets for 220V.
•A bathroom with toilet, wash basin and shower.
Breigutu gård is located in the Gudbrandsdal, 25 kilometres West of Dombås in the province of Oppland. Numerous daytrips can be undertaken from the farm. There is the Dovrefjell at only a 45-minute drive: a stunning plateau with extraordinary flora and fauna. There are herds of reindeer and even musk oxen to be seen. And a 90-minutes in the other direction takes you to Åndalsnes: a small port on the Romdalsfjord. Here you can go fjord fishing on a boat (independently or fully catered) or salmon fishing in the river Rauma. Åndalsnes also houses the spectacular road Trolstigen and the famous Trolveggen (the highest vertical cliff in Europe). For walking and hiking, you can go to Rondane – a beautiful plateau at only 50 minutes by car – or the nearby Valdres Flya. The latter has wild rapids and stunning mountain views (with the highest mountains of Norway: Galdhøpiggen and Glittertind). On the river Sjoa, flowing across the plateau, you can go rafting or kayaking. During winter, you can take the 30-minute drive to Bjorli: a lovely ski resort (snow guaranteed) with stunning slopes and a recently renovated city centre with shops and restaurants.
Other Things to Note
We expect our guests to go about their own way as much as they want, but if they wish give us the opportunity to entertain them during their stay at Breigutu gård.
We stayed at the cabin Benteros for 5 days. The cabin was really nicely decorated and well equipped with a cosy fireplace. It was also stocked with tea and coffee which was really nice! Our hosts Piet and Sita were incredibly helpful and generous. They gave us a lot of good recommendations on where to go around the national parks. Piet even lent us his fishing equipment so we could try fishing! Overall a really enjoyable stay. We felt really at home staying at the cabin.
Due to the onset of cold Autumn weather Piet and Sita (very friendly people!) kindly moved us to the apartment which was easier to keep warm. The apartment is beautiful, clean, great view, well taken care of. Our two boys loved the nearby forest with homemade playing equipment!
What a lovely place! Welcoming hosts. Much of the lovely furniture and decoration is made by the hosts. Well done! Very quiet.
Be sure you get specific directions to the farm. The turn is actually 22.1 km from the roundabout in Dombas (given our odometer is correct). Then, down the gravel road, second left, right by the sheep pasture and in you go!
WOW! JUST WOW!even though it was just for a night, staying in Piet and Sita's cabin was absolutly amazing! Piet and Sita are super nice and so kind. Piet came to pick us from the highway when we were lost aftrer a long day!
With all the surroinding green, the sheeps and the inside fire place, this came to be a wonderful 'country side' experience which we would definitly do again. Oh and the cabin is decorated so delightly!! So trenquile, so peacefull and with such great hosts, you have got to let yourself enjoy a laidback stay with Piet and Sita.

About the Host, Piet En Sita
Wij zijn een nederlands echtpaar met een duidelijke visie op het ontvangen van gasten. We zijn het verhuren van accomodaties begonnen om mensen een ándere vakantie te bezorgen, we willen mensen onthaasten, ontstressen, door ze terug te brengen tot het wezenlijke van het bestaan. Natuurbeleving, uiting van creativiteit, rust, schoonheid laten beleven.
