About our home
Welcome to our home!
We live in a charming villa from 1914 of high standard. It was totaly renovated in 2009. It has four bedrooms, a large bathroom with shower and jacuzzi, large kitchen, diningroom and livingroom.
Two of the bedrooms have double beds, one have two beds for kids up to 12 years and the last bedroom have a single bed.
The garden is green and private, with two grups of seating, barbecue, a trampoline and a play house. In our neighbourhood we have an artgallery, the citypark and the beautiful recreational area alongside the North Sea.
We live in a very quiet neighbourhood in the middle of the city of Haugesund. Haugesund is on the west coast of Norway. White sandy beaches is just a 30 minute drive. It's close to the fjords, glacier and the mountains. You can really explore Norway from this destination.

“Thank you Camilla & Stian! This was our very first swap but thanks to this experience it will not be the last. Friendly and easy communication with Stian and very good support on arrival by Camillas mother. Camillas notes with tips on what to see in the area and fresh roses from the garden made us feel very welcome. It is a nice house with a beautiful garden and lots of toys for the kids - a princess dream for our two girls! Haugesund is a cosy and laid back town near the sea and with 5 minutes to the great Norwegian nature, perfect for a relaxed summer holiday. Our home was spotless when we came back from Norway and we highly recommend anybody swapping with this lovely family. ”

Bit of culture
Nordvegen History Center: This well-hidden history centre lies in the midst of a rich field of historical relics. To avoid spoiling the views of Olav’s Church and the historic landscape, most of the Centre is underground. Here you can meet Harald Fairhair who united Norway, making Avaldsnes Norway’s oldest royal seat. Harald stands ready to guide visitors through 3500 years of historical time, when Avaldsnes was the place where Norway and continental Europe met and interacted. Harald tells of his realm and introduces some of the barons who ruled over Avaldsnes and controlled shipping up and down the North Way coast. Viking Farm: he reconstructed farm actually lies on a tiny forested island below the medieval Olav’s Church at Avaldsnes. There are a number of structures – longhouse, firehouse, roundhouse and a large boat house which make up the homestead. The farm is designed to help us understand how our ancestors built their houses, what materials they employed, and how they lived. The Viking Farm is used throughout the year as a historic camp site and school, but is open to the general public in summer.
