Dear friends, we really want to see Florence, Bologna and Venice. We can have a nonsimultaneous exchange.

House in Bergen, Norway

A lovely spacious home and garden in Bergen, Norway. Bergen is an old charming town containing the Unesco world heritage site "the warf of Bergen", and is called the Gateway to the Fjords (visitbergen.com). Our house has a nice fjordview, is large (5 bedrooms, 300 m2), lies in a large and lovely garden (1700 m2) in a quiet dead end street within a quiet area. Grocery stores and shopping centres are nearby, and you are only 10 minutes away from the centre of Bergen by car. The fjords and mountains are close in all directions.

National Geographic describes the Norwegian fjord landscape as "amazing and aesthetically one of the most beautiful in the world. The icons of Norway are so unique that it is difficult to imagine anything else. In addition to scenery, the fjords also offer opportunities like fjord cruise with classic boats, visting farms with fruit and local produce, family parks, hiking, walking on glaciers, visiting salmon farms and hydropower stations, kayaking...

Bergen is an old and lively city. Founded in 1070 and situated by the sea, Bergen has one of Europes biggest and busiest ports, mainly because of all the cruise ships. The tourists come to see the city of Bergen, with the surrounding mountains and fjords.Nice things to do in Bergen with or without children are: Take the cable train to the top of the mountains Fløyen or Ulriken, see "the warf of Bergen", visit the fish market, walk in narrow cobbled streets and visit the many different bakeries, see Bergen aquarium with seal and penguin shows, sharks, reptiles...go swimming at Badeland with numerous slides.

Our house is large, (300 m2), practical and comfortable and has all the equipment you would expect to find in a modern house. Upstairs is a large and bright living room with fireplace, stove, a big sofa, piano and dining room. There is a TV-room with a big sofa.The kitchen is fully equipped kitchen with a large kitchen table. There are three bedrooms, a bathroom with shower and bath tub, and a laundry with washing machine and tumble dryer, and a small bathroom with a toilet. Downstairs are two really large bedrooms, and a small bathroom with a toilet. We have both piano and guitars enjoyed by Intervac friends. Groceries and a big shopping centre is three minutes away by car. From our home you may walk in quiet streets with little traffic and reach woods, playgrounds, football courts, big trampolines, all free to use.

We are a quiet and responsible family who really enjoy our intervac exchanges.

Lifestyle

I am a teacher and my husband is a senior scientist. We have four children: two grown-up girls (32 and 26 years old) and two boys (22 and 18 years old), and two grandchildren so far. Usually only three or four of us go on holidays together now. We love to ski in the mountains during winter, walk in the mountains in the summer and see the world with Intervac!
