The small motor-boat Haakon and Mette-Marit use at their new summer place, sank yesterday from taking in too much water (probably from rain). Some neighbours discovered it, and reported it to the police. Others took the boat to Risřr, so it could be emptied. Kronprinsens bĺt sank - VG Nett om Kongehuset

Thanks for the gist of the article, translated into English, but is there a fuller and more extensive translation of this article out there, Norwegianne?

Thanks, in advance

The new house looks really nice but I can't get over how small it is, with 3 growing children, I would certainly want something bigger so I could escape by myself for a while.

I agree, it does appear small. Perhaps they wanted it that way so it could only be the family that is in the house and no "staff" around. I love the grass or moss on the roof. Very unique!

It is pretty much the standard size for these things nowadays in Norway, at least for the common folks. The cabins of yesteryear (like their summer house) are much smaller. The idea is that anyone wanting solitary time goes for a walk outside, either on foot or on skis, which is chiefly why these summer/winter houses are located fairly far away from "civilization".

Our winter home and summer homes are tiny, but as we spend most of the time when we're there outdoors, it doesn't really matter. (And should the weather be ghastly, you spend the time playing board games )

The Crown Prince and Crown Princess visited the Dvergsřya island to see the property they're planning to buy (or rent) as a place for vacation near CP Mette-Marit's home town Kristiansand.

See the pictures of the house:

hola mentions in this article how the neighbours of villa vogt, that the crown princely couple rented, complained about the need for security to enter the island that will be imposed as the couple spends their summer there. there's apparently a facebook group

Haakon y Mette-Marit de Noruega ya tienen casa de verano

It is an older news, but it seems, they don't like Flatholmen so much... Maybe they don't use it anymore.

oh dear

I ask myself how the late King Olav V would of have thought of all this
He surely would of have asked for local construction permissions to be respected
And I do not think he was so much in favour of a certain 'spending money habit'

An old article about the cabin in Uvdal, with a few new pictures:

FJELLSNARET - Slik blir kronprinshytta - Nettavisen
Google Fordító

And other pictures: http://scanpix.no/spWebApp/search.ac...ANPNOREO071112

Other article with pitures:

http://www.klikk.no/bonytt/hytteliv/article445239.ece
http://translate.google.hu/translate...icle445239.ece

And an article with a map:
http://www.nettavisen.no/bolig/hytte...cle1379253.ece
http://translate.google.hu/translate...cle1379253.ece

Other map: http://www.fjellsnaret.no/?page_id=890 , the Nr.157 and 158 is the CP's cabin.

I think the cabin can be here, but it is not marked as the other cabins, areas: http://wikimapia.org/#lat=60.3281447...&z=16&l=21&m=b

And an article with a picture what was taken from the opposite side of the valley:
