The name Lundarhegni originates from The Old Oak Grove on the farm Eikeland. From the very beginning, thousands of years ago, this is considered to be the ceremonial place of Hatlestrand. Formation in the landscape, old place names, burial mounds, ancient monuments, together with general knowledge of history, tell us about a much unknown history.
The housing project of Lundarhegni will present a good alternative to persons and families who want to establish their lives close to nature and old traditions. The goal is to create a setting that will encourage art and craftsmanship, creativity and exploration. This we will achieve using fairytales, legends, mythology, drama, music and dance, values that are worth taking care of. We are proud of the backdrop. Our horizon is a dramatical mountain scenery. Our outdoor area is simply unique!
Our project intends to supply both Hatlestrand and Kvinnherad, with something fresh and new. Lundarhegni wants to administer a colorful cooperative of young and old people with one consistent ethical core value, and that is the respect for Mother Earth. Activities host to be governed accordingly.
