Knutsvik Fjordferie

Holiday home


Knutsvik Farm is located on Jøsneset, sitting picturesque on the Ombo fjord in Hjelmeland county. The farm dates back to the 1700, when it was the seat of sorenskrivar/ kanselråd in Ryfylke - Georg Daniel Barth.

Kanselråd Barth was also a pioneer in horticulture and this is still important for the local economy which includes apple trees, pear trees and plum trees that are all over the farm. If you visit us during the spring, you will experience the natural beauty of the fruit trees in full bloom.
