Ambera is a new all-year-living concept based on affordable homes, extensive shared facilities, community spirit, and an active lifestyle.
The story of Ambera begins in 1995, when a young Jan Olav Frestad visited Sun City Lincoln Hills for the very first time. In America, retirement communities based on affordable homes, extensive shared facilities and social activity had been around for decades, but to a Norwegian like Jan Olav the concept was completely new.
Back home, he had watched as friends and relatives became isolated and bored when they retired. As he witnessed the direct opposite happening to the people in Sun City, a seed was planted in the back of his mind. What if me and my friends could spend our retirement like this? What if there was a community like this back in Europe? The dream of Ambera was born.
