This house is a cozy timber house built in 1942. It is my childhood summer paradise and it used to be my fathers house and before that my grandparents house. It is approximately 5 km from Leknes. It is a quiet neighborhood with short distance to both mountains and the sea.
The house is sheltered from the wind and it has a big terrace for barbeque or just your outdoor breakfast.
Please note that Widerøe now have a direct route from Oslo to Leknes. Might be worth checking it out.
This place is situated halfway to 'Mortsund' from 'Fygle'.
