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.

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.

Svensk ødegårdshygge

  • 5 of 5

I forbindelse med vinterferien var vi 3 vennepar, som besøgte Sällegården. Små 10 km uden for Vetlanda ligger denne lille idylliske perle - en lille landsby bestående at nogle små røde træhuse. Vi havde æren af at nyde 4 dage i smukke omgivelser i Eriks hus. Et fint, rent og funktionelt hus med alt det man har behov for på en ødegårdsferie.

Vi blev mødt af nogle utrolig søde og hjælpsomme værter. Ved siden af Eriks hus lå et lille lade hvor vi hver morgen kunne hente friske æg og friskpresset juice (egen avl). Til de morgenfriske var der mulighed for at tage øksen på nakken og gå ned til søen - hamre hul på isen og tage en kold morgendukkert. Vi brugte også tid i det lille hyggelige saunahus, som lå lige ned til søen. Vores intention var, at komme på langrend, men da forholdene (vejret) desværre ikke var til det, nød vi de smukke nationalparker, som man kan køre til i bil. Alt i alt en skøn skøn ferie som får vores varmeste anbefalinger - både for børn og voksne (og et besøg værd på alle årstider). Det skal nævnes, at der ingen offentlig transport er til stedet. så bil er nødvendig. Vetlanda er nærmeste by og der er et bredt udvalg af indkøbsmuligheder.

De aller bedste hilsner

A wonderful and calm place to come back to..

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 4 days over christmas. We were 2 families so we needed a lot of space, so we are very pleased that we could stay in "Eriks house". We were very welcomed by the family that runs the place, and we felt like home. We loved the nature around us, lovely for kids with the horse- and sledge, sauna by the water where we also had a barbecue, walks in the forest, visit the animals in the barn... We had a lovely christmas! We are thinking about a visit again in the summer. Thank you for the hospitality and beautiful living at Sällegården, Småland. We highly recommend this place for tourists from other countries if you want to see beautiful Swedish nature.

Authentic Småland

  • 3 of 5

Nice place in the midle of the forest. You can relax and enjoy there is very quiet. There a lot of Things to see, if you would drive some km. We were at Vastervik, Vimmerby and Vetlanda.

We were out on a ride in the Familys carriage and it was a guided tour, where you felt that you where back in time and a part of Astrid Lindgrens books.

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.
