In Øystese and Norheimsund you will find shops, hotels and some restaurants. The distance to Bergen is about 1,5 hours by bus or car.
All our cabins have a fjord view, their own private screened patio, and the opportunity to rent boat and fishing gear.
Sjøtunet was built as a marketplace in 1850, with the small farm in addition. It has been in the family for generations. From 1945 the main industry was the greenhouse producing tomatoes, cucumbers and flowers. Today we make sheep, calves, raspberries and plums thrive on the farm. In addition to agricultural activities we have cabins for rent, a shop where we sell our own products, and a house for courses and banqueting. All these different activities give us a variety of products to offer you and a farm that is alive.
A part of the farm is situated on the island Kvamsøy, where the sheep feed in spring and in fall, and where most of the hay is harvested.
