The SpaceOyndarfjørður is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the atmosphere of a small Faroese village. And you surely cannot live better than in a summer house down on the beach - so close that you hear the waves, both when you fall asleep and when you wake up again in the morning. Enjoy the panorama view over the bay. The neighbouring island Kallsoynna and all the mountains around are breathtaking. The summer house, called Bakkahúsini, was built in 1876 by our great grandfather. The material used to build the house comes from a schooner called Primus which - filled with wood - grounded and wrecked in Árnafyrði on the island of Borðoy in October 1875. Although some remodeling has tanken place through the ages, among other a modern bathroom with underfloor heating in 2010, we try to restore the house in a sound way to preserve and cherish the old original properties and soul of the house. The nature around is magnificent and offers good opportunities for hobbies and experiences. Up in the valley over the village, there is a small lake, where you can fish trouts. And where the small river from the lake flows into the sea - 100 meters from the summer house - you can fish trouts and salmons. It is also possible for you to go up in the mountains around the village. And if you are an advanced mountain hiker, you can also take the amazing trip to the neighbouring village Elduvík. If you want to go jogging around Oyndarfirði, you can run a trip to the neighbouring village Hellurnar - about 4 km - on the other side of the bay. There is only 25 km to the nearest big town Runavík and only 60 km to the capital Torshavn. The highest mountain - Slættaratindur (882m) - is less than a 30 km drive away. One of the most wondrous natural phenomena in Oyndarfirði is Rinkusteinarnir - the rocking stones - two gigantic stones, which are rocking back and forth out in the deep sea - some few meters offshore. Rumour has it that the stones were two pirate ships set out to plunder the village, but an old woman called "Billa" transformed them into stones. Guest AccessYou have access to the whole house which include tree floors: The basement with entry, kitchen, two livingrooms and bathroom First floor (ceiling) with three bedrooms The celler Interaction with GuestsIf you need any more information or support, you are welcome to contact me. There are also people in the willage that can help if you have any questions, requirements or problems. The NeighborhoodThe place is fantastic. We really like the beach, the sea, the nature, hiking, outdoor living, fishing, running/jogging. Every time we are in Oyndarfjørð, we go down on the old pier to fish, and if the weather allow it we sail out with the boat/dinghy to fish around in the bay. Relaxation...
