Idyllic location, extremely clean, great customer service

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. Quiet and in the middle of nowhere with stunning views. The house itself was extrememly clean, nothing seemed old or worn. It had all the amenities we could have hoped for - bathtub, sauna, shower, fireplace, and a beautiful sunroom with the dining table. It was super cozy and the owners were willing to speak with us at 10:30pm when we were arriving to help with directions in the dark, and even offered to come by and show us the way.

This was a lovely house with excellent facilities in beautiful surroundings with breath taking views. It was clean, well equipped and well maintained. The owners were friendly and helpful providing all the information needed for a most comfortable stay. If you want to relax away from it all in the wonderful Swedish countryside this is the house for you! I would have no hesitation in recommending a stay in this lovely house.

Ausstattung und Lage einfach traumhaft!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren Urlaub in unserem neuen Schwedentraumhaus sehr genossen. Es ist alles vorhanden was man braucht und noch einiges mehr. Alles in allem fehlte es uns an nichts und wir konnten die Seele baumeln lassen. Sehr schön für uns eigentlichen Nichtangler, waren auch die Freizeitmöglichkeiten auf dem Hof unserer Vermieter. Das Angeln von Forelle und Barsch, hat unseren Kindern und auch uns Eltern sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Gern möchten wir auch unseren nächsten Urlaub im Land der Elche und Seen wieder hier verbringen.
