“We highly recommend sharing with the family, we enjoyed our stay. You will stay in a beautiful house in a quiet neighborhood. The house is well appointed and tastefully decorated. There is a pretty garden and a superb view over the bay of Arendal. The terrace is exposed to relax in the sun. The area is lovely with these beautiful houses and small islets. There are very nice small beaches too.”

“We have just come back from our last exchange with Lena and her family. We really want to recommend to exchange with them. They are very sweet, and the house is lovely and cozy. Their house is fully equipped, and very tidy. We loved it from the first moment when we opened the door for the first time. Our kids had the best time playing with all the toys and enjoying the nice garden. We also used their bikes, since the area is very bike friendly. Everything was very easy in this exchange. We were in touch by mail and SMS during the exchange, and that was very helpful. We liked the area, lots of things to do, and to see. Besides riding the bikes, we also hiked as much as we could, and took a ferry to the cutest island near Arendal, called Merdø. If you want to get to know the southern part of Norway, this is the family you ought to exchange with, it will work out perfectly! Thanks Lena & family for exchanging with us, it has been a pleasure!”
