Villa Rosehagen is beautifully situated in a large garden near Jørpeland center in Ryfylke. Here you can enjoy local food and beverages with nice views of the roses and the fjord.
Villa Rosehagen, the rosegarden, is a nice meeting place for the whole family. The restaurant serves mostly local food, and the dishes are made with respect and love. You can enjoy dinner, lunch, cakes and pastries in the cozy living rooms or in the large garden with sea views.
The beautiful wooden house was built as the operations manager's residence for Stavanger Steel in 1912. The historic villa is called "Grahamshuset", and is named after operations manager George Marlow Graham who worked at the steelworks from 1924 until his death in 1956. At that time the house was a nicer home in a small industrial area, with big social differences.
Today there is a collection of around 120 different types of roses in the garden. During flowering, it smells fantastic, and it is a beautiful sight together with the beautiful view towards Jørpelandsvågen and the islets in the fjord. There is also a sculpture park with steel sculptures in the garden.
Villa Rosehagen is located near Jørpeland center, a short drive from the path to Preikestolen and only a five minute walk from the beautiful Jørpelandsholmen. The islet has become a leisure area with beaches, frisbee golf and beautiful wood carvings, and you can view "The Norwegian Stonehenge", Solspeilet, on the neighboring islet Klungsholmen.
