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

Perfekt !!!

  • 5 of 5

Einfach traumhaft !!!!

Es war mein/ unser Schwedenaufenthalt und ich werde definitiv nochmal dort hinfahren.

Peter, der Vermieter, ist einfach nur klasse und sehr freundlich.

Und das Haus ist sowas von gemütlich und sauber.

Wer Ruhe und das ursprüngliche Schweden sucht, ist dort genau richtig.

Danke an Peter und Annica, dass ihr ein Teil davon wart unseren Schweden-Urlaub so perfekt zu verwirklichen.

Sehr schönes und gemütliches Landhaus

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in diesem Domizil von Anfang an willkommen und wohl gefühlt. In der liebevoll eingerichteten Ferienwohnung, gemütlich unterm Dach, war alles, einschließlich Geschirrspüler, Wasserkocher etc. vorhanden. Die Vermieter erlebten wir als ausgesprochen nette und hilfsbereite Menschen. Ein Höhepunkt für unsere Balou (Gordensetterhündin) war die Hündin der Vermieter Nessi (Aussi), die jeden voller Freude begrüßt. Die Umgebung läd zum Wandern und zu ausgedehnten Spaziergängen ein. Der Gesang der Kraniche, wilde Heidelbeeren .... ideal um zu entspannen. Danke für die schöne Zeit...

Ein herrlicher Aufenthalt in einem tollen Haus

  • 5 of 5

Unser Urlaub im Edvinshuset war einfach nur ein Traum! Obwohl wir mitten in der Nacht ankamen, war alles erleuchtet und warm. Die Vermieter waren extrem nett und hilfsbereit. Wir hatten Glück, dass ihre Enkelkinder über Ostern zu Besuch waren und mit unseren Kindern viele tolle Tage auf dem herrlichen Grundstück verbracht haben. Das Baumhaus und vor allem der liebe Hund Nessie wird unseren Kindern in Erinnerung bleiben. Unsere Jüngste hat in diesem Urlaub ihre Angst vor Hunden ganz verloren!

Das Haus selber ist sehr sauber und gemütlich eingerichtet. Die Betreuung durch die Vermieter war deutlich besser als wir jemals erlebt haben. Als unsere Tochter sich verletzt hat, haben Annika und Peter uns bei der Versorgung geholfen und sogar mit dem Krankenhaus telefoniert und für uns einen Termin ausgemacht! Vielen Dank noch mal dafür!

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!

Ein Traum!

  • 5 of 5

Die 14 Tage Aufenthalt in diesem sehr schönen, mit Liebe eingerichtetem und gemütlichem Ferienhaus waren wirklich einmalig. Insbesondere die herzlichen Vermieter Annika und Peter haben uns immer das Gefühl gegeben, zu Hause zu sein.

Die Umgebung von Ostfrölunda ist Schweden wie es im Buche steht, Wald, Wiesen, Seen und Flüsse sind Rahmen für Urlaubstage mit Schwimmen im nahen See, Kanufahrten im Fluss, Angeln und Elchsafaris auf eigene Kappe. Für Kinder ein großer Abenteuerspielplatz, für gestresste Erwachsene Entspannung Pur. Einziges Manko: wir mussten wieder weg!

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.
