Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We have an exchange already for the summer of 2016 and are not looking for other exchanges in 2016.

Our house is located less than 1k south of the little pitoresk town of Asgardstrand, located on the western shores of the Oslo-fjord. Panoramic view of the Oslofjord and easy access to many beaches, big and small, within 500m - 7k are our main features and "selling points" along with the possibility of relaxing at home or on the beach in the calm sea-breeze and in the evenings even hearing the wave break gently on the shore whilst enjoying the long and sunny scandianvian summer nights on the terrace. There are also the option of travelling on foot or bicycles on the nearby Costal- Culture Footpaths routes, with one just in street past our house.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

In Åsgårdstrand you will find small shops, cafes and a well assorted grocery store. The house is in a quiet residential area that for the most part is comprised of villas but also dotted with summer houses. The house is just a short distance from the sea and nearby family-friendly small beaches.The closest a mere 0.4k away, see pictures, and the another one less than 1k away in Åsgårdstrand town, ("strand" by the way means beach in norwegian). The past summer temperature in the water reached a balmy 23-24 degrees.
There are good possibilities for public transport with the bus stop being only 0.1k from the house. Buses go to both the cities of Horten and Tønsberg, from the latter you can catch both regional express busses or the train to most parts of Norway. Sandefjord Airport Torp 25k or Oslo 100k or Oslo Airport Gardermonen 140k being the main travel hubs.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Of nearby attractions we mention the house of Edward Munch in Åsgårdstrand 1k, now a museum dedicated to the renowned Norwegian painter who perhaps is most known for his painting "The scream". Also worth mentioning is Borrehaugene with the Midgard center, 5k. This area is a field with a number of viking burial mounds and a viking- heritage center and a bi-annual viking festival. The street outside our house is part of a "Costal footpath" that comes from Tønsberg and passes by us and goes on through Åsgårdstrand to Borrehaugene and futher north. It is an easy terrain to walk or cycle in and passes though leafy forrests and farmland.

In Tønsberg there is the castle ruins on "Castle mountain" to be seen or you can visit the County museum and experience the true size of the mighty blue whale. Golf: There are two 18-hole courses within a distance of 15k.
Kiting/ surfing: If the wind pick up, the beach only 0.3k from the house gets crowded with the experienced kiters and windsurfers.
