A Summer Residence with a long History

Solholmen has a long history of recreational leisure in a quiet and laidback atmosphere. In the early days of last century this mansion as well as many others alike were the target of Bergen´s more afluent families holiday vacations. Withdrawn from the noise an buzz of the city, they could here enjoy the quiet and comfort of the pleasant countryside summer days.
