Helge and Min are very welcoming hosts, kind and very open. You feel really comfortable at their place. It is quiet, airy, with lots of light and views of the forest.
There are a couple of shops nearby so you can buy what you need. Also 5 minutes away (walking) from the place there is a bus stop, so you can reach the city in half an hour.
We recommend it!
Helge and Min were both wonderful people. We enjoyed their hospitality and they made us feel welcome. They were extremely helpful about how to get around with the various transportation the city has. We enjoyed their little toddlers entertaining ways as well :) They are good people. Glad to have chosen to stay with them.
Helge was such a great host. He picked us up and drove us back to the airport for a fee and was very helpful with bus information. I recommend his place.
We enjoyed our stay. We were able to enjoy an atmosphere of peace and quiet and were able to set out on wonderful hikes through the beautiful surroundings.
helge & min were really lovely hosts who made sure we were comfortable and shared much with us about their country; their apartment was clean, peaceful, surrounded by nature ... would love to be back!
La maison est située dans une très belle ville, en pleine nature. Une forêt avec de magnifiques lacs à 15 mn à pied.
Helge et Min sont de bons hôtes, ils donnent de bons conseils pour visiter la ville. la maison est propre.
Helge and Min were friendly and welcoming!
I stayed there because I wanted to go hiking through the trails (DNT trails!) near to their house. It was perfect for that.
Unfortunately, I suffer from migranes from time to time, and so I spent my second evening in bed with not much of an appetite. (Which is really too bad because I had to decline some really good home cooking!)
I would stay with Helge and Min again.
