Half way between Bergen and Stavanger, and 45 minutes from Rosendal Baronet. "Smedsvik" offers guests the ground floor of a modern home, with your own access. The spacious guest area includes "Winter Garden" room, sitting room, two double bedrooms, private bathroom, and sauna, lsundry access.
Less than 100 metres from the fjord/sea, overlooking Ålfjorden, a real Norwegian fjord. Nestled in a large, beautiful garden with many nooks and crannies to stop, sit and reflect, overlooking the fjord. Birds, wildlife and great natural areas surround visitors.
"Smedsvik" is easily accessible, less than an hour's drive from Haugesund/Karmøy airport and 15 minutes off the E134 highway from Ølensvåg.
We can collect guests from a bus at either Ølen or Isvik, along the E134, by prior arrangement.
Beautiful cooked or continental breakfast provided with many homemade extras. Lunch and dinner can easily be provided with notice and additional cost. Tea and coffee making facilities always available.
We use quality bed linen/pillows on beautifully comfy matresses. There is also a single bed available.
The rooms are not serviced daily, as I believe people generally like to be left to their own devices when on holiday, so you can completely relax and treat the area as your own, without being bothered by cleaners coming or going. If your stay is longer then the rooms will be serviced on a weekly basis at a pre-arranged time to suit everyone.
The closest shop is 6 kms away at Innbjoa and Vikebygd, 12 kms away however other amenities, shops etc are a little further away in Ølensvåg, Ølen or Isvik.
Great walking tracks, either strenuous or as relaxed as you like, in the hills, the beaches or historical sights.
Great photo opportunities abound.
Ideally situated for wonderful day trips to Rosendal, Folgefonna glacier and Odda or Hardangerfjorden, Ullensvang and Agatunet, not to mention Haugesund, the home of the Vikings and quaint Skudeneshavn.
Stay a day or a week, travel at your own pace.
TV, Wi-Fi, heater and some training equipment also included.
It's memories you take away, therefore we are only too happy to assist in any way to make your visit memorable, relaxed or as strenuous as you wish.
Wonderful scenery and nature abound in the Bjoa area. In the hills behind us, along the fjord and surrounding areas. Day tours offer a real Norwegian experience depending upon your interests, and I am happy to help plan your days, if interested.
There is a kafe in Isvik, Frøken Fryd (frkfryd.com) suitable for meals, but you need to check times. Otherwise I am happy to cook a meal if you would rather.
Jenny is a tour guide so is knowledgeable when it comes to seeing the highlights of the area.
