Our prize-winning village is beside the fjord & has frequent 34 min. bus or ferryboat connections to Oslo. The 50 sq.m. apartment is in the 1st floor of our home in Vollen. The well-equipped, warm flat has a door to the garden. It's suitable for couples, families with children & visitors working in the Oslo area. We furnish very comfortably according to your wishes. There is free safe parking by the house. Close by are: grocery store, restaurants, shops, boat museum & beautiful shore paths.

The space
We live in a peaceful neighbourhood beside the Oslo fjord. We have no pets but occasionally have visits to the garden from neighbouring cats. Especially in the winter and early spring, we can see deer which are beautiful and harmless but come right up to the house to eat rosebuds and early tulips!

There is free safe parking on our property. Many guests like to leave their car here and take the bus or boat to Oslo.

Guest access
You enter the apartment through the garden door, and immediately come into the combined kitchen, laundry and shower room. From this you walk into the corridor where you will find relevant brochures and information materials displayed. The spacious bed-sitting room is to the left. The separate toilet is located beside the playroom. There is a cupboard in the playroom where guests can borrow extra blankets or rugs. The home-services room which houses the water meter, central heating boiler and carpentry workshop is locked and not accessible for guests. There is also a private storeroom. Guests should not open the small private freezer in the playroom. You are welcome to use the Miele washing machine and tumble drier.

We hope you will enjoy the sunny, south-facing garden outside the four apartment windows. There is a wonderful view of the fjord and the ships of all sizes passing. You will find cushions for the outdoor furniture and a couple of outdoor games in the storage box beneath the kitchen window.

Other things to note
Guests arriving by car should park beside the house to the left of the garage.

There is very good wifi connection in the apartment. You can log on to our wifi (4Mbit) using the guest address SheepsInn. The password is given in the "Information for Guests" folder in the apartment.

Vollen is a very charming, peaceful village about 25 km south of Oslo. The origins of Vollen go far back to Viking times but in the last 20 years the village has grown considerably as many families have moved here to enjoy coastal village life, within half an hour's bus or ferryboat from the capital city.

We now have many fascinating boutiques and workshops; a large grocery store; the Oslo fjord boat museum, which is at present looking forward to the return of Amundsen's Polar Ship "Maud"; and good and varied cafés and restaurants. Our personal favourites are Vito's restaurant beside the harbour and Olea Greek shop/café/take away in the village. But we can also enthusiastically recommend Café Oscar for wonderful bakes and cakes and the Sushi take-away right beside the supermarket.

I moved to Norway from Ireland, almost fifty years ago and apart from some years working as a journalist and assistant editor on an oil industry periodical, I have been a teacher in secondary schools for many many years. The last twenty years till I retired, I taught the International Baccalaureate course to 17 - 19 year olds. My subject was English Literature, which I loved to teach. I am lucky enough to have three children and six grandchildren who all live quite close and whom I love dearly! My hobbies are gardening, photography, traveling, playing with my grandchildren, golf and sailing. I love reading of course and enjoy opera and music from Beatles to classical. I am a part time consultant for ASC, which is a company helping Norwegians to relocate to other countries for work or schooling. I'll be very happy to help you choose places to visit in the Oslo area and to discuss Norwegian culture.

During your stay
We live in the house above the apartment and on arrival we expect to welcome guests, give them the keys and show them round. Although check in time is 15:00 hrs, this is very flexible. We are always glad to be informed about the expected time of arrival.
In general we expect guests to leave before noon on departure day but again this is negotiable to suit both us and our guests.

When we are at home we are very happy to offer advice and information to our guests. We have also made a web-site which describes the apartment in detail; how to get here; Vollen village; suggestions for 1 - 2 hours trips, half day or full day trips from Vollen; local sport and recreation facilities; a calendar which tells about Norwegian and local events; and Norwegian food specialities available at our local supermarket. You can ask for the web address when you have registered your booking.
