“Dahl himself said that he found much of this inspiration during his summer stays at the hotel,” says Strand Hotel Fevik’s hotel manager, Anja Beisland. While this is perhaps not the first place that springs to mind when reading The Witches and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, it is easy to imagine feeling the urge to write after a stay. Beautifully located in the old fishing village of Fevik in southern Norway, the stunning hotel is built in a functionalist architectural style and enjoys easy access to the beach.
