The 1st floor comprises of 3 bedrooms, 1 living room, 1 kitchen & a bathroom with shower. The house has a new kitchen with all facilities such as German satellite TV. The rental price also includes the wireless internet access.

In front of the house there is a big garden that invites your kids to play & romp around. The garden, from which you can enjoy the beautiful evening sun, is equipped with garden furniture & a BBQ. At the same time you can enjoy the stunning views of meadows, mountains & woods.

Gravsjön (lake): 2 km to get to the lake Gravsjön with its beach & the small idyllic Ile with BBQ-area. Here you also can catch pikes & rosefish. Herefore you need to buy a fishing card of 5 € from the owners.

At the river Ätran which is 700 m away from the house you can go fishing, canoeing & even have a BBQ at its riverbank BBQ-area. During a certain period we even can offer you a wonderful experience on our raft having a BBQ on it while gently drifting down the river.

Café Keramikstube Ulfshed / Klevs Gästgifveri: 6.3 km to get to the cosy Café Ulfshed where one can buy wonderful ceramics, take a coffee break or just play some crazy golf on its very unique golf course. 13 km to the guest house Klevs Gästgifveri.

Edvinhuset, our new swedish little paradise

  • 5 of 5

We can't but confirm the comments below. Our two weeks stay in Edvinhuset was absolutely marvelous! The house is well equipped, clean, decorated with much taste (as you can see on the pictures), and has a very friendly, positive vibe, it just has this swedish aura… The environment is very calm, peaceful. Despite the autumn and cooler temperatures, the surroundings were gorgeous, particularly the lake 2km further, in our opinion one of the nicest lakes in the area. We made some bicycles trips around there and enjoyed the beautiful, once again typically swedish sceneries, with its red houses scattered over the hills. A last word to the owners Peter and Annica, who were amazingly friendly, careful for their guests and largely contributed to this feeling of well-being. Congratulations for keeping this place so authentic, inspiring and revitalizing. And as an austrian ex-body builder once said: we'll be back! Mick and Kath

Hej Annica and Peter,

Just wanted to say thank you so much for making us so welcome, doing so much to make our stay special and for the wonderful atmosphere of Edvinshuset. We really had a great time, especially swimming and canoeing on the lake and our late night bonfire and barbeque there. Personally loved cycling along the quiet lanes and back roads. All in all a haven of peace and tranquility for us. Would certainly recommend to friends. Mange takk. Stephen, Sarah, jamie, nese and rachel

Sehr gemütlich in wunderschöner Naturt gelegen.

  • 5 of 5

Das schöne alte Haus liegt auf einem schön großen Grundstück. Kinder können hier prima spielen.

In der näheren Umgebung kann man angeln, baden, wandern, Fahrrad fahren und die Natur entdecken.

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Ein wunderbarere Ort zum erholen und entspannen.

Abgerundet wird das ganze durch die herzliche Gastfreundschaft der Vermieter.

Wunderbare Ferien

  • 5 of 5

In dem malerischen Edvinhuset haben wir herrliche Ferientage erlebt. Die Vermieter Annica und Peter sind unglaublich freundlich und haben uns von Anfang an herzlich begrüßt. Danke dafür!!! Die Beiden haben uns das Ankommen in der Erholungsphase mit ihrer herzlichen Art, dem blumigen Empfang und der quirligen Hündin Nessie leicht gemacht. Die Ferienwohnung ist schön geräumig und läßt jedem ausreichend Platz zum Entspannen und Erholen. Wir haben alles sehr sauber und ordentlich vorgefunden. Es gibt ein großes Schlafzimmer, in dem sich 2 größere Betten und 1 normales Bett befinden. In den 2 weiteren Schlafzimmern befinden sich jeweils 2 Doppelstockbetten. Das Bad ist vergleichsweise klein, aber ausreichend. Die Küche ist gemütlich und gut ausgestattet. Hier haben wir tolle Abende verbracht. Wir sind sehr glücklich, dass sich auch unser 1jähriger Rüde Eddy super mit Nessie vertragen hat, obwohl Eddy sich manchmal mit anderen Hunden schwer tut. Aber Nessie ist sehr sozial und schaffte es locker Eddy zu zeigen, wo es lang geht. Wir werden gern wiederkommen und freuen uns schon jetzt darauf!

The accommodation is located in Östra Frölunda.

The beautiful region invites you to go hiking or exploring the area on our tandem. By bicycle or even on foot you can easily reach an inn (Gästgifveri) or the café Ulfshed where one can admire & buy typical scandinavian handicrafts, textile sewing & knitting and a variety of ceramic works.

Even a hiking path crosses our farm & property, you can find many idyllic lakes & river courses in the near environment which is tempting for fishing (also fine fish) & go for a paddle in a canoe.

In the winters you can as well spend a very relaxing time in Edvinhaus while reading a good book, listening to music, preparing some delicious meals or just enjoying the calm out here. If the sun’s rays start to make the snow sparkly like diamonds then that is for sure a unique experience.

Please book a weekend.

Golf: 13 km to the 18-hole golf course of Mårdaklevs.
