“It was our first exchange and we are 100% fully satisfied. The house is nice, fully equipped and kids enjoyed the garden and the trampoline a lot. Marianne is very nice and she was an invaluable help for having everything fine for the exchange and our holidays in Norway. We think that Olen is a very nice place to stay for visiting Norway. We did a lot of different things, from hiking on a glacier to the nice sandy beach in Karmoy, or the marvelous Bergen and Stavanger. Close to Olen, there is also nice places to see, and gentle walks through the mountain and the fjords, very suitable for our young kids. Well, we strongly recommend to try the exchange with Marianne and his family!”
