The Villa was built in 1885, and the couple lived there the last 22 summers of Edvard Grieg’s life. Edvard referred to the Villa as his “best opus so far”. The ground floor of the house is open to the public and consists of a Memory Room filled with objects from key events in Grieg’s life, the original spacious dining room, a veranda and a sitting room where you can explore Grieg’s very own Steinway piano from 1892. The instrument is still playable and is often used for concerts, like in this year's October lunchtime concert series.

Pianist this Sunday: Martha Berit Belt
