About our home

Our home is a nice house in the center of Toensberg, Norway. We like it very much and often we do not want to leave it. But we know we have to in order to gain knowledge of the world.

The house has a basement/cellar, a ground floor and an upper floor. On the upper floor there are four bedrooms, in addition to a bathroom and a WC. The bedrooms are one with one single bed, two with a double bed and another one with a sofa where two people can sleep. On the upper floor there is also an extra room right now used as an office. On the ground floor there is one dining room, one living room (with one big and one small sofa where one grownup and one child can sleep), and a large kitchen where all the family can eat. There is also an extra WC on the ground floor. It's a nice house with wooden floor, fireplace in the living room, and a terrace and a garden where there is sun from morning till evening (when the weather is good, but then again, this is the sunniest part of Norway). The garden is big, with fruit trees and flowers. The very best thing is that the neighbours are very nice and will do their best to make you feel at home.

Where is it?


Toensberg is the oldest town in Norway, a Viking town and quite a summer resort, situated by the Oslofjord. There are a five minutes walk to the city center with shops, restaurants, art museumz and cultural events all the year around, and with a medieval festival and music festivals (classical music and rock) in summer. Very nice neighbours to help you (as foreigners) whenever you need. Ten minutes drive or twenty minutes on bike (one car and three bikes at your disposal, and special tracks for biking) to nice beaches for both children and grownups. One hour drive to Oslo, the capital of Norway. The nearest airport is Oslo Torp, half an hour away, where Ryanair and other airlines have flights. The big airport is Gardermoen, north of Oslo. From there it takes two hours by train to Toensberg.
