Three story terraced house in Bergen suburb

Our home is a three-story terraced wooden house in an estate without traffic. The house has one bedroom with a double bed and two bedrooms with single beds. In addition, we have a sofa bed. There are two small bathrooms with showers. The kitchen was renovated a few years ago and opens up on a comfortable dining area, seating 8-10 people. From the dining room you have a view of some of the mountains surrounding Bergen. The house is a typical Norwegian house, which means that the common rooms (dining room and living room) are quite large, while the bedrooms may seem small for people from other cultures. There is also an office with computer and a yoga/reading room.

The neighborhood is called Nordås, and is 15 minutes from Bergen city centre by car. There is a well-stocked supermarket, a pharmacy, and a few other shops within 5-minute walking distance. Bergen's largest shopping centre is a twenty minute walk away. From there, you can take the tram to Bergen city centre. There are also buses from near the house.
The estate has playgrounds for children, a football pitch, and volleyball/badminton court. It is usual to just let even very small children run freely around, since no cars are allowed on the estate. It is easy for children to make friends here, and some of the inhabitants are native English or French speakers. Nordås Lake is a few minutes away, and many swim there on warm days.

Bergen is surrounded by mountains, fjords, and islands. You can hike, fish, go camping, hire boats and canoes, or play golf in the area. Hardanger is about an hour and a half away, and many other beautiful fjords are within easy driving distance. Good terrain for hiking, all levels.
