The Story of Villa Alpina.

Villa Alpina was built by my parents in 1972. My 2 sisters and I would come to the house together with my parents for every holiday. We never went anywhere else then to our country house in Jondal. 


It was a paradise to grow up in these beautiful surroundings. Swimming in the ocean, picking berries, walking in 

the woods and onto the mountains, skiing and fishing and playing with lots of other kids.


As my parents died, my sisters were occupied with other projects so I bought the house. For years it was my owns vacation place. But with teenage kids wanting to do everything else but going to Jondal I did not spend as much time as I wanted. However, things change and time passes and one day I decided to move to Jondal on a permanent basis. My son moved to Australia and my daughter to France, so I sold the house in Bergen and moved to Jondal.


I live the dream in my beautiful house in the beautiful Hardanger. It is such a fulfilling thing to take care of 

the house and continuously improving it! I work parttime in Jondal and in Bergen. And I enjoy the calm and beauty of my house in Jondal and the serenity of the nature!


I welcome you as a guest in my home and I will do my best to make your stay a pleasant one!
