The space
Welcome to Villa Fredbo!

The old historic house Villa Fredbo, (which means "peaceful living") is located at the west side of Nesodden, a peninsula in the inner Oslo fjord. Summertime with sun from morning almost to midnight.
With nice view to the fjord and pond, as well as a private koi pond, in front of the house.

Villa Fredbo is approximately 300 sqm built in 1875, the garden is 4-5000 sqm.
It can serve as a place to spend relaxing days, it´s a perfect location for holidays, parties or seminars, weddings, or as the base for outings to Oslo, Drøbak, Tusenfryd amusement park, or the Oscarsborg fortress.

Parts of the year the number of accommodates can be 16+.
There are more rooms in the house, but parts of the year some rooms are available for short term renters.

Special occasions:
There are separate rates for rental of Villa Fredbo for occasions like weddings, parties, seminars and TV commercials.
With a party tent in the garden you can have as much as 100 guests for your wedding.
I´m an interior designer and stylist, and if you like I can offer traditional or spectacular decoration of the house / tent / garden / orangery etc.
The orangery with its sacred character is suitable for the wedding ceremony or for accommodation for the bride and groom.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you want accommodation for more than 10 people or information about rental for special occasions.

--------------------

The house and the garden have been pictured in a variety of interior magazines and newspapers worldwide during the last 10 years.

The surroundings are beautiful and relaxing. Go for a walk in the forest behind the house, and enjoy a swim in the pond in the forest with so clean water.
Relaxing, beautiful garden with room for private escapes.
Pick your own strawberries and vegetables in the private organic kitchen garden.

In one part of the garden there is a trampoline and a playground slide for kids.

During winter, usually with a lot of snow, you will find groomed trails for cross-country skiing crisscrossing the entire peninsula. There is also a small family slalom slope close by (Brattbakken - Nesodden Alpinanlegg).
Or go visit Oslo's most popular toboggan run, Korketrekkeren. One non-stop ride takes 8-10 minutes. Riding in Korketrekkeren is free, but sled rental costs NOK 80-100 per day.

16 km with car to Drøbak, a popular holiday destination with beaches and a charming city center. Small soccer field.

Other things to note
I have some friendly renters in a separate part of the main house. They have their own entrance and private rooms, kitchen and bathroom.

We have two cats, 17 quails and 22 chickens.
The cats, Fred and Streken are friendly out-door-living cats, they are never inside the house! Because I´m allergic to cats.
The quails and chickens lives in a coop in the garden 20 meters from the house.
Therefore, It should´nt be any problem if you are allergic to cats or poultry. :)

Location

Fagerstrand, Akershus, Norway

It's a quite neighborhood with food stores about 2,5 km from the house.

For more information about things to do, visit the websites of Visitoslo, Visitdrobak, Visitfollo, Tusenfryd (only in Norwegian) and the Oscarsborg Fortress!
You can also visit the caves of Spro (Spro gruvene) just around the corner.
I will recommend visiting Hellviktangen art café at Nesodden, with delicious organic food in beautiful relaxing environment. And maybe enjoy a swim by the sand beach if you like! Midsummer the water might reach 23 degree selcius.
You can reach all this with bus or/and boat.
