House in Oslo, Norway

We live in a house with a nice view over the capital, Oslo. The surroundings are highly appreciated for its beautiful woods and lawns. We have a nice garden where you can relax and enjoy the summertime. The city center of Oslo is easy to reach either by bus (10 min.) or by foot (20 min.)
We have sleeping capacity for up to five people. Bikes at your disposal.
Our family lives next door, they'll be more than happy to help you with anything during your stay. If you are lucky they might even take you on a trip to the forest and our cottage (30 min. by car).

Exchange plans:
We'd love to go to Italy this summer, preferably Tuscany, Sardinia or Sicily!

About Our Family

Mari, the mother, is a teacher and an artist. Mathea (me,) is her 22-year old daughter. I do conservation studies (preservation of the cultural heritage) at the university of Oslo. Sometimes we are traveling with my sister, Inga. She's 18 and loves to play the violin.
We all enjoy to travel and exploring new places. Nature, culture, making new friends and good food are our main motives for traveling. Looking forward to hear from you!
