TRADITIONAL SWEDISH WOODEN COUNTRY COTTAGES DALARNA AREA WITH SAUNA AN

Hagfors Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Large, spacious three bedroom house with two small cottages/4 beds in garden

Traditional red wooden house in village of Uvanå on northernmost shores of Lake Nain bordering Värmland and Dalarna. All accommodation is extremely spacious. Main house comprises three large bedrooms and sleeps 6 comfortably. Large living area includes open plan lounge and dining space with seating for 8-

10.We have had a wood burning stove recently installed which adds a welcome cosiness on cooler months. There is a TV and well-stocked DVD and VHS library. Downstairs bathroom with large shower, toilet and wash basin. Upstairs are two spacious bedrooms, one double and one twin a quiet lounge with open fireplace and stunning views of the lake and a separate fully equipped kitchen with breakfast area.

Cottage 1 is an historical, 16th century log-built 'stuga' cabin with double bed, open fireplace, lounge space, fully equipped kitchen dining area and toilet with handbasin.

Cottage 2 contains bunk beds, shower area and also houses the sauna cabin. Beautiful lake views from both.

All properties are heated and constant running hot water supplied by the geo-thermal system

Things to do in Uvana village: The village of Uvanå is deep in the forests of Värmland at the top of lake Nain and borders the Dalarna region of Sweden. Famous for its midsummer festivities and Dala horse, the area is steeped in Swedish traditions and ancient folklore. Known as 'Little Canada' by the locals also referred to as'Ten mile wood/Tiomilaskogen. 'The area has a yearly folk arts festival at the end of July, selling traditional crafts, food and music. You can visit the neighbouring villages in the woods where everyone welcomes you and opens their doors.

The lake is just a short walk away from the house approx 100 m.Here you can swim or launch one of our canoes. There is also a swimming area and beach 10 min walk from the house signposted 'badplats'.

There is a local 'fishing club' in front of our property on the lake shores. Fishing permits/fiskekort can be purchased from any of our neighbours for a small fee. This will allow you to fish from other local lakes.

Explore by boat, hike or bike.

Places of interest/things to do in summer: We have local guides in the area from whom you can also rent boats, bikes and winter equipment.

You can pick wild blueberries, cranberries, currants, raspberries and gooseberries from the garden or in the woods outside our house.

In Yttermalung hire a 'Bastu Flötten'/floating sauna on a motorised raft, take a cool dip, fish, picnic.

Try quad biking, horse riding and white water canoeing or take a hot tub.

The local wildlife of the area are moose, beaver, lynx, wolf and brown bear - but don't worry the last two stay away from people in the wild! A guide can take you on moose or beaver safari. Visit the predator centre in Råda village or Orsa bear park.There is a moose sanctuary near Ekshärad.

Karlstad is just over an hour away if you want to shop or visit lake Vänern.

Visit Sunne the home of Selma Lagerlof,the famous writer.

Visit Tourist Info in Hagfors or Eksharad for more ideas on activities and adventures.

Take a steam boat on the fryken lakes from Sunne to Torsby.

Things to do in winter: There is excellent season-long downhill skiing at Sälen(80km), Branäs(100km) or Säfsen(50km) and good local practice slopes at Ekshärad, Malung and Äpplebo. Floodlit night-skiing above the twinkling village lights of Ekshärad is a rare treat.

Try cross country ski lessons or learn to snow shoe hike or ice fish in winter with our neighbour in Tyngsjö 6km away. If the conditions are good he also lays an ice-skating track around the lake there.

Husky dogs in Sunnemo/Malung-take a husky sled through the snow or let them take you for a walk.

Hej! We are Mike and Jackie Lucas. We currently live in Cambridge , UK. Mike is originally from Manchester and I grew up in Lincoln.

We have 2 grown up children! Sam is 21 and tom is 18!

Jackie and Mike Lucas purchased this cottage in 2008

We love the outdoors and visiting new, unspoilt areas.

Sweden is very unspoilt! Beautiful fresh air and wonderful scenery and wildlife. We love to be in and on water! which is why we choose our property. It is at the head of Lake Nain with many quiet and wonderful beaches to explore.If you like foraging in the woods, Sweden is great for picking wild blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cloudberries and mushrooms. As well as catching fish in the lake!

Its a wonderful area to explore. we are surrounded by many beautiful lakes. The house offers very spacious accommodation and the views from the upstairs lounge and the garden of the lake are what we love most. We have many garden chairs,tables and cushions so that relaxing in the garden is a joy! we also have a gazebo so that we can enjoy dining out in the glorious light,summer evenings!

We had a fantastic family holiday at Uvanå.

The property description was accurate although as we were a group of four we spent most of our time in the upstairs bit. The property was very well equipped and we had a very comfortable stay. The peace and tranquility was amazing although, on the flip side, everywhere is at least half an hours drive away.

We had great fun canoeing out to the beach on the lake, fishing, playing badminton, croquet, watching films, darts, trying a sauna and the big boys book of general knowledge quiz! We did some lovely walks in the woods and also trips out to Eksharad, Hagfors (the velo rail visit to the museum was very enjoyable) and went on an Elk Safari.

I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a relaxing holiday in peaceful surroundings.

The only downside was the midges, but as long as you took precautions this wasn't a particular problem.
Owner's Response: We are so glad that you had a fantastic family holiday and made use of all the facilities on offer at our property.
It is definately a place to escape and relax and get back to nature!
There are a lot of opportunities to explore by canoe, bike or on foot or just play games or read books in the garden!
We find being away from the main towns one of the highlights of being at our property and why we try and have everything you might need to enjoy yourselves.

It always nice to explore the area by car and the villages and towns north of Uvanå in Dalarna are always worth a visit. Vansbro and Malung and Mora and Rättvik on the Siljan lake. There is a bear park at Orsa and a water park at Salen.

We have introduced a large mosquito netted gazebo for the garden this year which is perfect for sitting out in the garden to enjoy your evening meal!

Best family holiday ever

We spent two weeks in this Swedish Holiday House last July with three teenagers and even though the weather was not always sunny, we had a brilliant time. The house was really cozy upstairs and the lack of internet and TV channels made this a fabulous family holiday. We played games, went canoeing on the lake, went on Elk Safari, explored the surroundings of Uvåna, used the Sauna every Night, enjoyed the garden playing badminton and Boules. Best Family holiday we ever had. The area is remote and beautiful. So much forest. We did an Elk Safari with PJ Erlebnistours in Ekshärad and learned a lot about Värmlands Wildlife. We also went on the Dressin Trolleys which was great fun as well. Loved everything about this holiday!
Owner's Response: We are so happy that you had a wonderful family holiday in Uvanå. We have to agree that it is the most idyllic, get away from it all haven! Certainly if you enjoy nature, wildlife and outdoor adventures in summer or winter you'll enjoy this beautiful part of Sweden.
We do agree it is cosy upstairs with the lounge with open fire and great views of the forest and lake.We have also had a wonderful wood burning stove installed in to the main lounge downstairs which adds a welcoming cosiness to the house in spring, autumn and winter.
More additions are planned for the coming few years!
There are many wildlife adventures, canoe tours and skiing destinations around the area and the Swedish Rally passes the house in February.

Perfect Swedish holiday

We stayed in the old stuga and our other freinds stayed in the main house. The old stuga is really beautiful (built of massive logs) and was very romantic inside. It is set to the side of a great garden where we had BBQs every night. The house is huge, full of traditional character and nice and clean and well maintained. The dining room is massive. All around were barns, the sauna house and it is all sourrounded by trees, more beautiful houses and masses of open land leading down to the PERFECT lake!!! Best of all the locals wre really freindly which made it all the more special. I would definately go back.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you had such a great holiday and enjoyed your stay in Uvana! It is a very special place, very tranquil and relaxing. so close to the water,ideal for trips out in the canoes and beautiful walks in the surrounding woods.. You are very welcome to return any time! Regards Jackie and Mike.
