New house (2015) for all year use next to the sea on the Hadsel island. Right by secluded beach facing spectacular mountains, jetty and rowing boat, perfect for hiking, fishing or just slow living under the midnight sun or northern lights.
We have built the house of our dreams by the sea and next to the smallholding farm where Teresa grew up.
Perfect for all-year use; skiing in winter, hiking, swimming, bird-watching or boating in summer. The house has heated floors and a fire place, as well as a large terrace.
The birdlife along the seashore is particularly rich. The ocean is full of fish, and sometimes you may even spot small whales (porpoise), seals or otter. The moose can often be seen wandering peacefully in the outskirts of the woods, only meters away from the house.
Across the road is a jetty, where you'll find a rowing boat at your disposal. (Life vests are available and obligatory to use.)
Following a path of about 70 meters you'll reach a secluded beach with coral sand and views to the mountains of Lofoten and Vesterålen.
During low tides, a bank of sand reaches the surface with different kinds of shells - free to pick and eat for supper.

Teresa's parents live in one of the neighbouring houses, and Sissa will meet you upon arrival and be available should you have any queries. Sissa speaks English and is fluent in German. They have lived in the area for 40 years, love the nature and Sissa has lots of tips and ideas for how to best enjoy your time in Vesterålen and Lofoten.
I love to write (that's my profession) and to read.
I grew up on a small island in Vesterålen, north of the Arctic circle.
I live in Bergen with my husband and our two daughters aged five and ten. We have have travelled quite a bit in South America and southern Africa and lived in South Africa. We have a lot of good friends and good memories from our time there, and a dream of returning for shorter and longer stays.
I am curious of people from other parts of the world, and as a host I love to hear about my guests' home countries.
