About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 12)

In the middle of a magnificent landscape, located on “The Queens Route” from Ålesund to Geiranger, you will find Urke, a perfect place for an extraordinary and peaceful holiday. This region has, for more than a century, been an inspiration for tourists and artists.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are a lucky couple who found the place of our dreams and had the opportunity to build the cottage. We spend as much of our time as possible at the cottage, but our normal day life with children, grandchildren and jobs are in Stavanger, in the south/west of Norway. Ole is a journalist and Torunn is working with visual art.

Why the Owner Chose Norangsfjorden, Norway:
Ole is originally from Aalesund. For years we have spent every summervacation in the area, visiting friends and family and travelling around to see all the wonderful nature and spots. The first time we came to Norangsfjorden, we were totally stunned by the nature, and decided that if ever a summerhouse, this is the place. Two years later we saw an advertisment about the site, and we bought it unseen. Luckily the site has a wonderful view, and our summerhouse, designed by an architect, gives you a panoramic view to the fjord and the mountains.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The nature in the area and the view to the fjord and the mountains is just fantastic. All our guests have been stunned by the beauty. The cottage is close to many of the most spectaculare tourist attractions in Norway.
