Introducing ourselves

We, Janneke van der Meer and Arie Bakker, left Holland in mid-2012 for Norway to start a “new life” in the village of Rauland located the county of Telemark in the mountains of south central Norway. Janneke became a teacher at the local school and Arie began a new career as a chef.

After eighteen months of adjusting to our new environs, we bought Heddesli in the town of Kviteseid. In 2016 we decided to open the second floor of our house to guests as a “Bed and Breakfast” and  Apartement Heddesli was born.

You can listen to our podcast episodes (in Dutch).

Dutch TV made a documentary based on our emigration to Norway in 2014.
