For a whole new way of enjoying opera, gourmet food and events, visit the Boutique Festival of Opera in the Åmot Country Villa and Opera Farm on the West-Coast of Norway in August.
Bergen National Opera and Åmot Country Villa and Opera Farm invite you to this year’s Opera Festival 21 – 23 August, “Mimi goes glamping”. You may actually hear snatches of La Bohème, in addition to the enjoyment of gourmet food, speakers, late-night singer-songwriters, pop-ups, masterclasses, yoga and forest walks.
In the Åmot Country Villa, you will have the opportunity to experience an authentic Norwegian atmosphere. The interior of the Villa tells the story of strong female characters, whose spirits can still be felt in the house. Being the family home of co-owner Steinar, every piece has a story to tell, every picture on the wall captures a moment that passed in this family, on this farm.
While recently renovated, the villa still has the feel of a country home. The modern elements of comfort, such as the tiled bathrooms and sleek kitchen appliances, manage to fit together perfectly with antique wooden furniture. Most of the furnishings are authentic, family pieces with a history of their own.
The living room areas of the villa harken back to the days of sitting rooms, with a table instead of a television as the centerpiece, the perfect place for conversation over after-dinner drinks. An atmosphere of pomp and ceremony from the 1890s still pervades, but is inviting, not stiff. Attention has been given to every beautiful detail from floor to ceiling. The Villa is home to two suites, the Kiri Suite and the Sina Suite.
Hidden amongst The Fjords and Valleys of Norway the Villa together with the estate may be rented. The historic villa is restored by the Åmot family into a modern villa without losing the history. Amongst the most well-appointed properties in the fjords, the country villa is like paradise where privacy, seclusion and proximity to the nature have not come at the expense of comfort and service.
How to get there:
From abroad, you can fly to Oslo or Bergen, the two largest cities in Norway. Both cities have good connections to the region, and both cities have daily flights with the airline Widerøe to the closest airport in Førde. From Bergen, the flight takes about 30min, from Oslo about one hour, and you will be picked up at the airport.
From Bergen you can also take a regional bus to Sande, where the management will pick you up. The bus ride takes about 3 hours.
