Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

*SUMMER 2019 EXCHANGE IS SETTLED*
*WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEBODY TO TAKE CARE OF OUR HOUSE AND CAT DURING 25.2.-2.3.2019 (NO SIMULTANEOUS EXCHANGE)*
We offer a large family house with garden in Bergen close to both, the city center and the stunning Norwegian west coast fjord landscape. The house is a 100 years old stone house, and has been partly refurbished in 2017 (kitchen, bathrooms). Its hillside situation gives a fantastic view over the city and towards the mountains. The living area in the basement is spacious, and all 3 sleeping rooms are on the first floor. There is an extra room with three mattresses on the attic which we use as extra play area for the children. From the kitchen, you can enter the garden behind the house with terrace and sandpit. There is also a little timber house and a trampoline for the children (summer). During summer, the garden is a green oasis and you don't notice that you are near the city center.
To the house belongs a big garage/carport, which houses a 7-seater car, bicycles for adults and children, strollers, tools etc.
We have a cat which must be fed (we buy the food), he is fully autonomous and does not need much attention, but he enjoys company and likes cuddling in the evening.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our neighbourhood is an urban but quiet area; here lives a mixture of families, singles and students. In our street there are both, old and newer single houses, row houses and apartment houses. The center of Bergen with the UNESCO World Heritage Bryggen, the famous fish market and its lively streets is just about a 20 minutes walk away, across a fjord. Bergen offers many activities, and is the portal to the West Norwegian fjords and mountains. A small beach is ca 10 min away by feet, and we live on the flank of a mountain (Løvstakken) with hiking trails that offer panorama views on Bergen and the open sea. The central Bergen area is urban, but you are off to nature pretty fast by car.
In winter time, there are 2 skiressorts will all facilities about 1 hour by car/public transport from Bergen, a large one (Voss) is about 2,5 hours away (car or public transport). Cross-country skiing 30-45 min from Bergen, if conditions allow.

Attractions

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

A whole new living area with modern architecture, outdoor facilities, restaurants and a marina has been risen close by our place, right beside the fjord. The lively, historic city center is close, you can walk there in 20-25 min or take a short bus ride. Just a few meters up from our house you enter a hiking area which offers spectacular views over Bergen and towards the sea. The area is very suitable for trimming as well. There are quite a lot of hiking opportunities around Bergen as it is surrounded by seven mountains, two of them with funiculars. All tourist attractions in Bergen center (fish market, guided tours, boat trips, the World Heritage Site Bryggen, etc. ) are best and quickest to be reached by public transport, some by a nice walk. Bergen has also cultural offers; museums, art galleries and music.
By car, you can go to a climbing park near Bergen, fishing tours, swimming and recreation areas, and the fantastic fjord and mountain regions around Bergen and in the county. Nature is very close. We have camping gear if you want to stay out for some nights - you are allowed to camp almost everywhere in Norway! And, as long as you stay nearer to the coast - no mosquitos!
Bergen is touristy, and there are offers throughout the year including combined boat/train trips (Norway in a nutshell) and tailored, guided tours.
