Hotel de la Source****

from 27 Dec - 28 dec 2017 

Spa-Francorchamps - België

review:

Very good hotel, good food so you do not have to search for a Restaurant. And right next to the Circuit Spa-Francorchamps. nice staff. Keep an eye on. if you are by car and it is snowing. for the hotel. runs upwards! then it can sometimes become a challenge to get away. but the Hotel starts early to clear away the snow. there is a parking garage but that is even further down the hill. but there is no snow on your car.
We loved it And definitely recommend this accommodation





Nr 107 

M/S Color Fantasy **** 

from Oslo to Kiel by boat

From 19 sep - 20 sep 2017

review:

What a beautiful boat. because we had a rental car we could only pass the car's license plate. and decided to do that one day in advance at the cruise terminal itself. We only found out later that they had given us an upgrade to the Luxe four star room including minibar at ten high. super cool of course. so it pays to visit the terninal !

We really recommended to go to Oslo by boat. or vice versa. we loved it. Thanks Colorline for this wonderful experience.




Nr 106

Voksenåsen **** 

Oslo - Norway

From 17 sep - 19 sep 2017

review:

Nr 105 

Grande Hytteutleige

Camping ***

Geiranger - Norway

From 15 sep - 17 sep 2017

review:

Grande Hytteutleige og Camping is located down by the Geirangerfjord two kilometers from the centre of Geiranger. Most people would say it is the best location in Geiranger. Sun from 10.00 and until the evening. 

for us this was certainly true. Geiranger is fun to go, but can be very busy. if you are looking for good you will certainly find nice and quiet spots. now we go for the second time in September so it is already much quieter.

We loved it And definitely recommend this accommodation !


 



Nr 104 

Tråsåvika Camping ***

Viggja - Norway

From 14 Sep - 15 Sep 2017

From 12 sep - 13 sep 2017

review:

loved this Hotel. 

Cozy and not too big.

Nr 101 

Aurora Mountain Lodge ****

Sweden

From 11 sep - 12 sep 2017

There is a lot to do here in the winter. but in the summer it is also very nice there is even a sauna on a lake! just ask. Food is very good here. and the people are very nice and always ready for you.




Nr 100 

Skaidi Hotel ***

Norway

From 9 Sep - 11 Sep 2017

One of the better hotels. Especially if you do not want to make it too expensive. only at the hotel is not very much. there is a gas station with a small Bistro and a tank store. they are also very nice and are always ready to help you. the food is very tasty but beware, there is sometimes not much choice. But you take that for granted when you are so far from home. Nature in particular plays a major role here. love this place!




Nr 99 

Ounasvaaran Lakituvat ***

Rovaniemi finland

From 8 sep -9 sep 2017

We thought this was the best. a cottage ( Cabin ) for 6 people, lots of space. with Sauna, Fireplace, Kitchen, 2 Bedrooms and a loft, sitting area, and a large table. there is a wood loft for the fireplace (which already contains a lot of wood) love it here ! the cottages are on a mountain very close to the ski slope. Do not worry about the key of the cabin. it's in a key box next to the front door. And the key code you get by Email.

Loved it here ..... ! 


starts at 19:00 minutes

Ammatour Villas ****

Uro Finland 

From 05 Sep - 07 Sep 2017

this was also a very nice place. I did not want to leave. if you really like quiet, this is the place for you. 15 min drive from a few shops. 30 min from a somewhat larger city. Furthermore, there is a nice walk at the Cabin that you can make. this is located on the peninsula close by, it is only a 4 min walk from the cottage. and then the hike starts.

From 02 Sep - 04 Sep 2017

review: 

Wonderful to have a little more space. only our apartment was not much bigger than a hotel room.( in our case, there are larger apartments.) but it did have a kitchen. And is very close to the ship's port, from where you sail to Finland. to get to the center of Stockholm, just grab the Metro. this is 10min walk. Here and there, there are some nice restaurants. and at the bottom of the building is a supermarket. you can also easily walk to the ship port. and there is also a public swimming pool nearby. We loved here !
