Villa Lofoten


Villa Lofoten is a small group of newly renovated, historic buildings that once belonged to local fishermen in the small community Kvalnes, Vestvågøy. They now offer beautiful holiday accommodation for visitors looking for an authentic Lofoten experience.

We offer stays in three historical buildings in the abandoned conservation area of the fishing village of Kleivan and a farmhouse at Soleng, a stone’s throw from the harbour. The buildings have been restored using reclaimed materials and adapted for modern use. The furnishings are essentially recycled and convey Nordic craft and art traditions.

The cultural and historical buildings, the harbour, the beach, the farmland, the sea, the mountains, wind, weather, northern lights and the midnight sun provide a unique and special atmosphere. Villa Lofoten sparks the memory of what has been and invites its guests to create new stories and memories.
