Ingegerd and Anders are perfect hosts, with a lovely cottage in the best location in Bjare Peninsula, close to Bastad. They are highly attentive and friendly, and helped us with everything we needed. The cottage is a classic Swedish cottage, and has been fully renovated and equipped to meet modern tastes. The cottage is very comfortable, has wonderful gardens, and is exactly as pictured on the listing. It has amazing views of the Bjare peninsula and North Sea, with lovely sunsets. We stayed two weeks and loved every minute. The cottage was the perfect place to return to after days of sightseeing, hiking, and other activities. We would love to return and highly recommend the cottage.
The Bjare Peninsula and Bastad are great, with endless opportunities for the sea, hiking, biking, sight-seeing, museums, and other attractions. There are high-quality supermarkets within 10-15 minutes of the cottage, and numerous specialty food stores within 5-10 minutes. There are excellent restaurants in all directions. The only thing travelers should know is that the "season" is over at the end of August, and many places close or have limited days/hours after the end of August. We were not there during the tennis tournament, and understand that things are much busier during that period. If you go, make sure and take the time to go to the lighthouse, cliffs, and national park at Kullen Peninsula, a 45 minute drive.
