About the property

You can expect a light-filled, blue white house on the sunniest island of Sweden, meeresnah to both sides of the island (East, West), habitable all year round (12 electric heaters, 2 stoves), with a separate kitchen, sunny living room, spacious bathroom in the basement (bath, 2 showers), separate toilet / WC's on each floor; Bedrooms on both floors and a balcony, among others for sunbathing (south side). The house is comfortably furnished and ideal for 2 - 5 people (max. 7 adults + 2 children). High chair, washing machine and dryer helpful for families with small children. The house offers comfort also for 'older' semester.

A mild maritime climate and wind and storm protected location of the house invite you to cozy breakfast in the shade of old fruit trees or for barbecues between lilac hedges or to linger on the playground in the garden (garden furniture, sun chairs available).

For location close to beach walks and bathing we recommend the warm, shallow sandy beach with intimate sandy hollows on the Baltic side in Kårehamn (for young children and non-swimmers particularly suitable) or the pebble beach in Aleklinta on the steeper west coast (for surfers and swimmers particularly suitable, challenging

for building stone turrets or -türmen and the experience of spectacular, unforgettable sunsets possibly at the BBQ or cycling).

Bicycles for trips to the beaches and the island for cycling are in the house.

The central island location of the house favors golf (7 courses), water sports, horse riding and fishing. Revealing areas of activity lend themselves to:

 - Ornithologists (bird watching locally based courses);

 - Geologists (collecting fossils in limestone quarries, Silurmeer before 450 million Years),

 - Botanist at 'Linnaeus' footsteps' (orchid meadow in Södra Greda);

 - Archaeologists and historians (Borgholm castle ruins, a refuge before soldering and proximity Iron Age fields);

 - Artists (studio visits with local artists, concerts with the Martin's choir in the church of solder).

Popular festivals such as the Midsummer Festival in June or the Harvest Festival in late September hosted by the home club. The hair salon in town and the local, small, sleepy fishing port in Solder / Kårehamn boasting vast range of fish turn into a soldering öländisch - homely holiday residence.

New: In spring and autumn season we offer for up to four people a bed and breakfast establishments, shared kitchen and separate bathroom on (Rent by appointment).

Multigenerational is the possibility of an additional renting a separate cottage in the garden, with bed and toilet / shower facilities (vic & mic Tel. 004 648 573 035).

  • 5 of 5

"This is a charming Swedish country house with a lot of character, it is perfect if you want to get an authentic cultural experience of Swedish country life.

The house is sunny, cosy and well heated during the colder months. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped.

The village is very quiet and green, and there are historical and natural sights in the vicinity.

Our family spent the Easter holidays there with our two small children. The spring weather was pleasant and the yard was covered with blossoming crocuses and snowdrops. The house and the yard are safe for children and a great place to play.

Our stay has been a pleasant one altogether."
