The atmosphere in Hyllestad is relaxed and informal, and the area is quiet and remote. The local store is 1,8 kilometers away from the house. The neighbors are the lovely Bjarne and Ingvild, and the goats on the nearest farm. None of them will cause any trouble.
In summer, the place is perfect for outdoors activities like hiking, fishing, swimming in the fjord, or just relax on the green field and look at the sky. You can also explore the area around Hyllestad, by car, by bicycle or by foot.
