Description

The space

The attic apartment is on the second floor of a typical historical Bergen wooden house. Its build year is estimated to the turn of the 17th to 18th century. Inside it has been modernized over the last ten years, but the facade is preserved. We, a family of four, live in the rest of the house.

Though central, it is very quiet since there is little traffic on the peninsula. The street itself is traffic-free with no cars. Some fjord view from one of the windows.

The apartment is 1 1/2 rooms, with a separable double bed in the main room, as well as an alcovy connected to the kitchen. Comfortable for two, sleeps up to three. Kids under 12 stay for free, baby bed available. Please note that the stairs are somewhat steeper than normal, which might be a challenge for travelers with reduced mobility.

We aim to provide the guests with accessories that they need when they are away from home for some time. Thus, the apartment has

• a fully equipped kitchen
• a small bathroom with heated floor
• a washing machine and drying rack
• ironer and ironing board
• high speed wireless internet
• 42" cable-TV with international channels
• DVD-player and 200+ dvd's
• Hi fi system


Usually, and unless otherwise agreed upon, the guests will be welcomed by us when they arrive at the flat. We hand over the keys, and give some simple instructions and tips if they take an interest in it. Beyond that, we live in the house and are happy to provide assistance when desired.

"The white houses" on the Nordnes peninsula is a defining characteristic of the city of Bergen. Families, students, tourists, and all other kinds of residents thrive in this area of 300-year-old timber houses. The relaxed atmosphere, the very central location, the closeness to the sea, the park at the tip of the peninsula, and the community spirit of the Nordnes residents attract locals and foreigners alike to this area.

You will be in 8 minutes´ walking distance from the main city square Torgalmenningen.

Airport bus and other buses, light rail, and boats are all approximately 10 minutes away, while the train station is a bit less than 20 minutes away by foot. If you have light luggage, you can therefore easily take the airport bus and walk to the apartment. If you have heavy luggage, you may want to consider taking a taxi.

Thur apartment is lovely! In a beautiful old part of town this attic apartment is cosy and homely. We spent more time inside than planned due to the bad weather during our stay. The apartment was perfect for some relaxing afternoons with a comfortable couch and a great selection of movies. The hosts were welcoming and we had good communications with Sveinung leading up to our stay. Would recommend!!
