“This is a perfect place for nature lovers. Only 20 minutes away from the airport. This very bright modern house has big windows and a great large terrace with views to the sea and a small harbor. A lovely place to relax, read a book and watch sunsets. From here you can make several nice walks or go for some bicycle riding in the nice neighborhood. You can even take the bike to get your groceries in the shopping mall in Moss 10 km away as I did. That is, if you do not mind a few hills. Also the car is great to take you to several historical places nearby like Frederikstad, Halden, Oslo or even Stromstad in Sweden. Most of all what I liked is the beauty of the nature of Norway. Not just the coastline but wherever you go in the country side there are always meadows and lakes and forest and never seen a crowd. I had a lovely and very sunny week in this beautiful cozy house and can highly recommend it to anyone who loves to get away from all the noise in this world. I will miss Buster (the cat) as we became very good friends. Ed - Portugal”
Annette's reviewsAs a host (3)
“Merci à Annette et Karl pour ce fabuleux echange.”
“This was our first exchange and we became convinced that this must be one of the best ways to spend a vacation! The house and locations were described well by this family who have made several home exchanges in the past. The house is nice and spacious with a small, yet charming garden. The terrace and barbeque were especially appriciated by our family, and our son loved the trampoline. We spent many hours here... There are several houses nearby, but still privacy to be found in and outside the house. The area is great for hiking, biking and swimming. There are also some charming smaller cities closeby and Oslo is about an hour away. The family provided us with many good tips! After 2 weeks we returned to our home, just to find it cleaner than ever :-) Thanks for a great stay!”
Where is it?
Larkollen is widely known for its nice beaches and walking/cykling tracks both near the coast or in the country-side. Don`t be surprised if you meet wild deer or pheasants on your way, they are everywhere. Within one mile is a big golf corse and all the shops you might need. We are 45 minutes away from Oslo by train, from Fredrikstad with its old town and from the Swedish border. The nearest town Moss is some 20 minutes away by car. In Larkollen itself you have a grocery store, a brand new greathotel and some small cafes. Larkollen boasts the most sunny days in Norway!!!! No wonder people come from far away to go swimming and bathing on our nice beaches.
Rygge Airport with many cheap Ryanair-routes is only 15minutes away by car. If you wish we gladly exchange cars with you.
