Other things to note

Risør is known for its galleries. The intimate environment in Risør is perfect for the chamber music festival which draws both Norwegian and international musicians and audiences in the month of June, and the Villvin Festival in July. In August, boat lovers flock to Risør to enjoy the elegant lines and traditional workmanship of Europe's largest collection of wooden boats during the Wooden Boat Festival; (URL HIDDEN)

"Risørflekken" is an old landmark from the time when sailing vessels dominated the seas. On a nice day the landmark can be seen twelve nautical miles of the shore. This gave the sailors the right position to sail straight in to Risør harbour. Till this day, "Risørflekken" is used by Risør's fishermen to locate their favourite fishing spots. Not only is "Risørflekken" nice to look at, it is also nice to look from. The view from "Risørflekken" is breathtaking. The spot is painted white.

The house and surroundings offer everything for a perfect holiday: peace & quiet, spectacular view, water at our doorstep, cosy living room and bedrooms, terrace, boat, swimming facilities, ... Our boys loved fishing, jumping into the sea, and steering the boat! We enjoyed simple life in pure nature! Everything was very well organised by Ron although we didn't meet him in person.

It was a wonderful experience. Ron was the perfect host with perfect instructions for landlubbers like us. The kids were thrilled by the arrival by motorboat. The adults were thrilled by the view and the extraordinary interior design of the cabin. For Norwegian beginners like us it was just amazing and unforgettable.

This was a perfect start in our holidays. The location of the house can`t be better if you like the nature and your privacy with access to whatever you need within 30 minutes. The view over the see even from the bedroom is spectacular and you can start to swim and to take sun in the moment you get out of the pyjama. The house is well equiped and clean and we missed nothing. To get there by boat is easy and makes fun. Relax for granted. You should be aware of only cold walter and the typical separat toilet in this region, what doesn`t matter if you a glad to have nice weather as we did. Our kids loved the place like us and we would like to come back. Ron is a very kind and attentive host.

Sehr schönes Sommerhaus direkt am Fjord mit traumhaften Blick. Wir haben vor allem die ruhige, abgelegen Lage und die Abendstimmungen sehr genossen. Das Sommerhaus ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und es ist alles vorhanden, was man so braucht. Die besondere Lage hat allerdings zur Folge, dass es nur ein Plumsklo und eine Ausendusche (kein warmes Wasser) gibt.

Response from Ron:
Glad you guys enjoyed the summer house. I'm sorry about the cold water and toilet. However, the hot water tank is already at the cabin ready to be installed. As is the new toilet. We are constantly making improvements, and we'd love to have you back to enjoy the cabin even more with added conveniences. Thanks for your visit

Das Sommerhaus auf Barmen war ein Traum! Wir haben uns dort wahnsinnig wohl gefühlt. Die Hütte ist liebevoll und gemütlich eingerichtet. Der Blick ist toll ! Wir sind Boot gefahren, haben grosse Seelachse und Makrelen geangelt, haben schwimmende Rehe und ( zu unserer Überraschung ) Robben gesehen, haben gebadet und das Alles sehr genossen!!!! Vielen Dank für diesen wunderschönen Ort!
