About the property

Newly renovated house 3 bedrooms with room for 6 people, outside Vetlanda in Små

Erik's House

Erik's House has year round standard and is very charming renovated in 2010 and 2013. The building is old and new mixed. The beds and all linens are new, while the wooden sofa in the kitchen belonged to the farm for over 100 years. The kitchen is of high standard with dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, stove with four burners and oven. Of course, there is fridge, freezer, washing machine and dryer. The living room has a comfortable sofa, armchair, flat screen TV and children's games to enjoy in the evening or on rainy days. A large storage room is built together with Erik's house. The storage used for winter storage. You live for yourself throughout Eric's house is on 140m2. You have a private garden of 700 m2 with fruit trees, berry bushes, garden furniture and barbecue. Just outside Erik's House are all rabbits and chickens in their cages summer. Erik's house is child friendly with gates on the stairs, highchair and toys.

All electricity and heating included in the rent of Erik's House

You can choose to, in addition, pay for end of tenancy cleaning and to rent bed linens and towels if you wish.


Today we have three houses here on Sällegården. Stinas Cabin (Property 1401235), Erik's House (Property: 1225168) and Tyra's Cabin (Property: 1232926) are available to book on a daily or weekly basis throughout the year. Many friends book the houses the same week to share a holiday together.

Sällegården is in a typical Smalandian village similar to Bullerbyn or Katthult in Astrid Lindgren's children’s' books. The houses are painted red with white frames. On the farm you can fish, row a boat, ride a horse and carriage, wander in the forest, pick mushrooms and berries, and cuddle with the rabbits or cat. Many guests come to us just to experience the calm and quiet which is slightly unique. The lake Vrången is especially calming, it is 6 km away from Sällegården, and there you have free access to a boat and fishing permit. On Sällegården there's livestock and grazing animals during the summer.

In the summer 2013, we opened up our little farm store. There you can buy eggs, carrots, rye bread, jam, squash, and crafts work which comes from Sällegården The farm store also functions as a little tourist agency with tourist information and WiFi.

One of the major attractions here on the farm is the cozy timbered wood sauna by the farm pond.

When you live with us in Sällegården you can buy breakfast all year round. You then get to enjoy a real Smalandian farmer breakfast with yoghurt, muesli, eggs, coffee/tea, home baked bread and juice. The breakfast is delivered in a breakfast basket to the house or we put it in the fridge the night before. If you'd like breakfast you can order that when you make your booking.

The landlord speaks Swedish and English. Sällegården is as charming and beautiful during all of the seasons and worth a visit to genuinely experience Smaland.

Welcome to Sällegården! / The Sälleteg family.

Autentisk, venligt og proffesionelt

  • 5 of 5

Det var vores andet besøg på Sällegården. Huset, Eriks Hus, levede op til vores forventninger. Rent, hyggeligt, godt med plads. Vi manglede ikke noget. Sandra og Matthias har styr på det. Vi kan kun anbefale dette sted, som udgangspunkt for et besøg i Småland.

Fantastisk idyllisk sted

  • 5 of 5

Et dejligt sted i småland, med en skøn og rolig atmosfære midt i skoven samt skønne søer omkring sig. Eriks hus er indbrydende hvor man hurtigt føler sig "hjemme" og med et hjemmeligt miljø holdt i den svenske indretning. Omgivelserne byder på nærhed såvel kulturelle oplevelser med Astrid Lindgrens verden, lanthandlare, caféer, Natur områder, bade søer og de nærliggende byer som fx Vetlanda og Ekjsö. Derudover kan man leje cykler, ro i egen sø, sige Hej til dyrene, gå en tur i skoven hvor der er vel informeret med de sødeste skilte og i informationen findes oplysninger om nærmiljøets oplevelser og kort.

Har man lyst til hjemmelavet æblemost, marmelade og æg fra frigående høns er dette også muligt, alt ialt et nærværende sted hvor man lever i nuet.

Lovely and genuine Sweden experience

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in "Eric's Hus" for six nights winter time. We were two families with taken together three kids under three years of age. There was plenty of room for all of indoors, the kitchen is fully equipped including transistor radio and additionally to the electric stove there is a wooden stove. The view is lovely, even from the kitchen and they surroundings are splendid for a family vacation. You can ride the sleighs that belong to the farm downhill, make walks and go ice skating or use the sauna down the hill five minutes walk away, where you can make a hole in the ice of the pond and dip in Sweden style. The contact to Sandra an Matias was very warm and friendly and the price in clearly worth the money!

Cheers, Jan

Very nice staying

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our father's 65th birthday with a trip to Sällegården . It proved to be a very nice cabin. Just outside there were rabbits , chickens and swings which the kids thought was great fun. We were given a guided tour by horse and carriage through the countryside. It was very nice. The entire stay was appreciated by everyone from the smallest child to the 65 -year-old himself. The hosts were very nice.

Sällegården is elevated and surrounded by meadows. The landscape is surging with wood, lakes, fields and meadow lands. Within 15km there are 6 very nice sandy beaches. The closest sandy beach is called Aspö and is situated only 6 km away from Sällegården.

Childrens' favourite Astrid Lindgren's World is only 55 km away from Sällegården. At Astrid Lindgren's World all of Astrid's stories are turned into reality in a very professional way.

5km away from Sällegården is Vetlanda municipality's biggest tourist attraction; Kleva Gruva. Kleva is really cool as you get to wander down into the cave and even climb up steps 30m into the cave.

If you want to try on gold mining then Ädelfors Guldvaskning is very good. There you'll have a professional guide who will teach you to mine for gold.

If you're interested in petting the king of the forest; the moose, then there are several moose parks within a 50-70 km radius to choose from.

During the winter alpine skiing in Kättilsås, 11 km away is popular.
