Owner description: This old part of the town got its name from the extensive trade with Holland fram the 1600th until the 1800th centrury. There are few traces left behind from those times. The Dutch came to Flekkefjord to buy timber and rocks. Rumour has it that rocks from Flekkefjord is found under Schippol airport in Amsterdam! This cosy town area, with whitewashed wodden houses, picket fences and lush gardens is a result of the rich herring fishing that took place in the early years of the 19th century. Take a stroll through the narrow lanes and soak up the old history.

“Very Beautiful - incredible”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

No people in the streets, nut sun illuminated all the white houses, the flowers decorated chambers, a picture I would like ever forget.
Some sounds were mysterious, some people play the piano in the second floor, others installed a modern divise, it was surreal, theatrical.
