Rustic and secluded. Spacious house on the cliffs of the island of Store Kalvøy.

If you are looking for a true getaway, this is it. The light and the views are awe-inspiring!
And yet, the city of Aalesund is only 10 minutes away by express boat.

The space
The two-storey living room has a panoramic view of fjords and mountains. It calls for quiet reflection or painting, music making, unwinding with a good book, or board games.

The four bedrooms (one is an alcove) sleeps 7 and in addition there is a bed-sofa for two plus two guest beds which can be put up in other rooms.

Outside is a stone terrace, complete with a fire pit, where you can bask in the midday sun or enjoy the long, bright summer nights.

A steep path leads from the terrace to the cove below. It has a pebbly beach where you can go for a swim or a dip (bathing shoes recommended), fish your own dinner or collect mussels and seashells.

Guest access
The whole house is at your disposal.

Storekalvøy, Møre og Romsdal, Norway

The island has paths where you can go for walks, or you can walk along the coast. Some areas can be hard to pass, but mostly there are sleek rocks and heath with heather and juniper. There are deer and the occasional fox, eagles and seagulls.
The best place to fo fishing is on the western point by the lighthouse. Follow the path on the middle of the island. On the eastern end, there is a sandy beach where you can go swimming or dipping. The cove below the house is also a possibility, but the beach is stony.
If you would like to, Turid and Johan, residents on the island, have a small boat for rent, from which you can fish or go exploring around the island. They live in the brown house with grass turf on the roof.
From the house there is a five minute walk to the quay, from where the express boat takes you from the island to the heart of world famous Jugend/Art Nouveau architectural city of Aalesund, with ample shopping opportunities, in only 10 minutes. From there, you can further explore the region in many ways: Mountain hiking, fjord sightseeing tours (Unesco World Heritage Geiranger can be reached on a day-trip), sea safaris or island hopping, just to mention a few. The Sunnmøre region is one of the world’s most beautiful areas.
For ideas to explore, take a look at visitalesund, or visit the Tourist Information in Ålesund.

Elsker at gå på jagt, kyst og vand, skov og bjerge. Jeg er en god skaffer - og vil gå langt for at hjælpe mine gæster med de oplysninger de har brug for. Jeg arbejder som selvstændig grafisk designer sammen med min mand.
