The Suites in Buvika
Four unique suites in a historic house from 1750
Welcome to "The Vatican"
The yellow house in Buvika, locally called "The Vatican", is a baroque house from 1750 with many original and rare details both inside and out. The house is one of the oldest in Risør and has been awarded heritage status by the Department of Cultural Heritage. The restoration of the house as also been awarded the national heritage prize.

The location is about 800m from the town square by the sea in a quiet area called Buvika, it is a pleasant and easy walk and our guests here can use good town bikes.

Preservation through use

The house's protected status and careful restoration have not hindered that the house now has four very comfortable suites with all modern conveniences and tasteful furnishings that are sympathetic to the history of the building.

In the ground floor are The Captains Suite and The Officer's Suite, both with a fine sea view, and upstairs are two smaller but very cosy suites in the loft, The Boatswain's Suite and The Sailor's Suite. Outside is a pleasant garden with plenty of outdoor furniture for all guests.
