The inviting geothermal tub is discretely placed in the bushes of the birch midst in the pure nature. The location is superb with a great view on the bay and the Atlantic Ocean below with ever changing shades of light, and the mountain Sulur in the other direction. A little creek makes the border of the property as it flows by in the gully. The lodge Brekka (means slope) is a beautiful new house, finished in 2013.

Thank you very much for these words, Anoop. Actually it's my wife, Auja, who makes the detail work inside all the cottages of Nordic Lodges. That's what gives our houses quite a flair, quite of a character -her character!
