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!
