In Norway, there is a little town called Rosendal, surrounded by the ocean on one side, and the beautiful mountains on the other. In Rosendal (which directly translated is “Rose Valley”) you will find many beautiful things and places. Fjord Hotellet, which is the beautiful hotel my grandmother and grandfather built, right next to the beach. Different mountains, where you’ll be able to pick blueberries on your way up, and enjoy the beautiful view of the whole city and ocean, on your way down. The sunsets, the harbor, the Stein Park (Stone Park)… The list is long! But the most amazing place in Rosendal, and one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been, is Baroniet or The Barony.
The Barony is a little white manor, hid away inside the most wonderful garden. This is the closest anyone will ever come to a fairytale! The beautiful rose garden, which is always beautifully kept, and smells amazing. The Greenhouse Café, where you can enjoy amazing, organic food, while looking out over the vegetable garden, which is recreated exactly as it was back in 1665. The wine cellar, where you can see beautiful paintings, and the manor itself, where you can get a guided tour in the authentic kept, beautiful rooms.
The best thing about all of this is, that you can actually have your wedding at The Barony. And if you’re traveling far, you and all your guests can spend the night in their very own B&B, the Avls Gården or Fruehuset.
The Barony is one of those places you have to see. You can’t express its beauty, smell the roses, or experience the fairytaleish garden, through pictures.
