House in Ålesund - Norways most beautiful town

Welcome to our house - situated right in the heart of the famous Norwegian fjords and mountains.
We are living just outside the beautiful Jugend style city senter of Ålesund, several times proclaimed to be the most beautiful town in Norway :)
From our home it takes only 15 minutes to walk to the mountains, with a lot of possible paths.
And only 10 minutes to walk down to the sea, a beautiful green area with a small beach and view to the mountains.
The town (a 20 minutes drive away) has a lot of cafes and restaurants, a beautiful outdoor museum with old houses from the district, a Jugend Style Museum and a North Atlantic aquarium. 10 minutes away there you´ll find "inner part of the city", with a big shopping center, cafes and restaurant and cinemas.
Our house is also a very good starting point for a lot of attractions, to different fjords and mountains and small villages.
In our neighbour town Molde, 80 minutes by car and ferry, there is a  very good international jazz festival one week from the middle of July.
Further up, from Molde to Kristiansund, lies the famous Atlantic see road, which is also a beautiful sight.
There are (at least) to very nice routes if you dont want to take a plane to Aalesund airport. Driving from Oslo to Aalesund, og go to Bergen on the West side and drive up to Ålesund along the coast, with some ferry trips and stunning views.
