Henseid Skole, vacation in a school !!! Going to school was never so much fun!
The Henseid Skole is a former elementary school built in the year 1951.
It lies in the small hamlet Henseid or Henneseid. This falls under the municipality
Drangedal in the county of Telemark. The Henseid Skole did the last service in

What Past Guests Are Saying
Sinderen, Gelderland, Netherlands
Ruime locatie met gastvrije ontvangst
Unieke locatie gelegen in een prachtige omgeving! Op 10 minuten rijden bevinden zich supermarkten en er is genoeg natuurschoon in de directe omgeving. Voor langere wandelingen eerst ongeveer 45 minuten rijden. Om leuk te winkelen moet u een uur rijden. De eigenaar kan u ook de route voor een prachtige autorit met veel Noorse bezienswaardigheden aanbevelen.
De verhuurders doen er alles aan om het de gasten naar het zin te maken. Hij treed bijvoorbeeld als gids op om je het hoogste punt van de omgeving te laten zien. Zij is gastvrij en haar kook kunsten vallen goed in de smaak.
In principe is alles mogelijk in goed overleg. Je voelt je er 'thuis'.
Toplocatie in zuid-Noorwegen, aanrader!!
Een oude basisschool omgebouwd tot 3 prachtige appartementen. Alles nog in oude schoolstijl inclusief schoolborden. Echt heel smaakvol ingericht met ruimte genoeg voor het hele gezin! Wij hebben al heel wat appartementen geboekt de afgelopen jaren maar dit was veruit de mooiste in een geweldige regio van Noorwegen.
De familie doet er alles aan om je thuis te laten voelen en geeft veel tips over de omgeving inclusief een gezamenlijke barbeque met alle gasten die er op dat moment waren, top!
