Veldig hyggelig anneks i rolig område av Son kort vei til sentrum og sjøen. Det perfekte vertskap gjorde oppholdet til den gode ferieopplevelsen.
We had a very pleasant stay at Christina's and Dridrik's (and Ruffen). The cottage is very charming and containing all the necessities. The location is just perfect, a few min by walk from the marina and the heart of Son. Christina has been very helpful and sweet to give us information and advices. They made us feel very welcome and were unexpectingly generous. We even experienced unforgettable boat trips :-). We would recommend this place without hesitation. Thanks for such a nice stay !

Superfint lite sted hos særs hyggelig og imøtekommende vertskap. Huset har alt man trenger, er rent og hjemmekoselig, i kort gåavstand fra sentrum og badestrand. Christina og Didrik var alltid hjelpsomme og bidro med alt fra hjemmelaget hylleblomstsaft til båttur på fjorden. Tipptopp :)
We had an amazing stay at Christinas place. She was a really friendly host. It was a cosy and clean "cabin" with everything we needed. Short walking distance to the small centrum in Son
I stayed one night with two friends on Christina´s lovely place. The area is beautiful and we should really have stayed at least another day.
We arrived really late (almost 2 in the morning!) and she had no problem with it...leaving us clear indications on how to get there from the airport and how to get into her place.
Above her cosy annex, I would like to highlight her kindness....the following day not only she was in no rush for us to go....but she offered to take us around the area in her own car....and even introducing ourselves to some of her friends. We are most grateful that she shared her time with us...apart from all her knowledge about the best spots in the area.
Flott vertsskap med et lite paradis som de leide ut til oss.
Kunne nyte morgenkaffen på uteplassen overfor huset - helt usjenert og solrikt. Perfekt start på dagen :-)
Forøvrig så traff vi mange gode mennesker på Son Brygge ((website hidden)) spiste gode fiskemåltider på samme (website hidden) er stedet for de gode oppskrifter.
Både vertsskap og Son anbefales.
Dejlig hytte i Son med fantastisk natur lige til døren. Super søde og hjælpsomme værter!
About the Host, Christina
I'm hiking in nature every day with my dog - Ruffen-, and I love to take you with me. Great views are often a goal for our trips.
I spend hours in the garden, nursing the flowers, herbs, fruits and berries.
I work as gestalt-therapist, sometimes Ruffen joins in sessions as therapy-dog :)
I give lowe-treshold-yogasessions at the local volunteers as well.
In the summer we like to invite friends over to barbeque in the garden.
