About the property

Fishing, swimming, grilling, cycling and boating, camping

Between Lyåsa village and Lyen lake lies the old farm Lillegard, 275 meters from the shore. The house was built in 1847 in solid wood gezimmertem. The secluded location, close to the lake and the Lyen the courtyard belonging, beautiful environments with pastures and forests make Lillegard to a rural idyll. In our web you will find the boat. In the vicinity we made a barbecue. Together, they make a great base camp for excursions lakes. Basement and first floor are renovated in 2005-2013, restored with old wooden floors and wallpaper in an appropriate style for an old house. The beds are all modern, while the majority of the other furniture in older style. In the garden there's trampolines, slides and hills. Our 1/2 km wide bank is entirely free from other buildings and we have a lot of work to make the area between the house and the lake beautiful and accessible.

Swimming, boating, fishing and hunting. In our lake system pike, perch and pike dominate but many other fish species, for example, Eel is also there. You can use the Lyen Lake and other lakes accessible by boat and smaller rivers same fishing license. It is in the village (Lyåsa, 300m) to shop with. We have depth maps of the three largest lakes (Lyen, Hultasjön and Rymmen) can you bring on board. Anglers are also a lake with game fish (z. B. Salmon trout) only a few miles from the house. In addition to our bathing Gibt's lake system in many natural beaches where the water is shallow and the bottom is good for the feet. Nearest public beach is three kilometers away from the house. If you are looking for a house for another family in the area, there's Kungsgården house (also booked with Holiday-direct object 40639, 5 min walk along the shore).

Today's Lyåsa: In our region Lyåsa is known for its beautiful scenery and unusual for the wooded Smaland views. The horizon is the only limitation of the gaze. Lyåsa consists of ten yards, nine on the hills and our Lillegård on a slope from Lyen lake. A small (about 100m) Forest & some willows (250m) Lillegård separate from the other courts. In the meadows are many traces of the old economy and the provincial government has called Lyåsa 'national interest for nature conservation'. Because the old economic traditions, the village has a rich flora. Cows & Horses graze on some slopes, while others are cut with a scythe or with modern methods. One day a year in late July, each is interested in haymaking mitmache to try the old economic methods with scythe or rake. Behind the fields and meadows are large forests. Small forest trails wind their way to the valley. Hiking, mushroom picking, fishing or swimming, Lyåsa has for nature lovers much to offer.

The old village Lyåsa (history): As the ice retreated, it has completely changed the landscape. It has mountains crumbled into gravel and under the ice flows are elongated ridges and hills were formed. When the temperature had risen again the ice has melted and people have begun to colonize the landscape. They were used to achieve rivers around the country. Some had used the river Lagan and have gradually reached the Lyen lake. First they lived as hunters and anglers. If you had learned to cultivate the land, they were looking for places that were suitable for the economy. In the immediate vicinity of the Lyen lake to the east was such a court, formed during the ice hills (drumlin). Therefore Lyåsa was established at the highest point of the hill. Not only was here to manage well the country, it was easy to defend. Therefore Lyåsa is one of the oldest villages in the area with many traces of ancient civilization.

Wonderful, scenic location, lovely home. A must-stay location to relax and get away.

  • 5 of 5

Seeking to stay somewhere in rural, quiet Sweden we found this property. I did not realise at first that the listing is for the second floor of the house and that the Jansson family lived below. However the Janssons are the most hospitable, welcoming people I could have hoped for. If you're a fan of Magic the Gathering or Chess then beware, Mattias or his son Ragnar will certainly beat you!

The property itself consists of a dining room with a view to die for, a spacious kitchen, two double bedrooms and one single, a bathroom and a gorgeous lounge area. We were free to use a barbecue and there is a lovely firepit built by the lake - we ended up spending a lot of our time building fires and relaxing by Lake Lyen. The area is so quiet, even with another family around (you won't notice their presence much). Often the only noises I could hear were a cow moo-ing in the village, and birds chirping. Absolute bliss.

The location of the house is in a small village, about 40 minutes drive away from Värnamo, where you will find the nearest supermarket and systembolaget. Storemosse national park is also only an hour away, and contains some of the most beautiful scenery and walking trails we have seen. We spent two whole days exploring the national park and still didn't see everything. Lyåsa is an accessible 2.5 hour drive from Gothenburg-Landvetter airport.

Bear in mind if you are planning to stay, there is a rental fee for ben linen and towels which is not listed on the description (150kr per person). This was a negligible fee to not have to bring our own, and the beds were so comfy.

My only regret is that our trip wasn't longer. Even a week is not enough time to soak up the beauty of the area. We're already planning when to return! Thank you Annika and Mattias!

Urlaub zum Abschalten

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben drei Wochen Urlaub in Schweden bei Familie Jansson zu Hause verbracht. Unsere Jungs konnten sich beim spielen mit den vier Kindern der Vermieter in der englischen Sprache üben. Auf dem Weg zum See kann man Blaubeeren und Pilze finden.

Erholung auf schwedisch

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus Lyasa Lillegard der Familie Jansson spricht zuallererst einmal das Auge an. Es steht, umgeben von einem gepflegten Garten, auf einer Wiese, in der Nähe der Wald. Man ist erfreut, das Haus strahlt eine einladende Ruhe aus.

Man betritt die Ferienwohnung und ist angenehm überrascht von den grosszügigen Zimmern, insbesondere dem neuen Wohnzimmer, das zentraler Aufenthaltsort ist. Die Wohnung ist absolut zweckmässig eingerichtet, es fehlt an nichts, weder in Küche noch sonstwo. Liebevoll eingerichtet auch die Zimmer – man merkt, dass den Vermietern das Wohl der Feriengäste am Herzen liegt. Ein Zeichen dafür sind garteneigene Blumen in kleinen Vasen, die einen von den Fenstersimsen begrüssen.

Die Kinder fühlen sich sofort wohl. Sei es auf dem Trampolin, beim Fussballspielen auf dem Rasen oder bei einem der zahlreichen Brettspiele aus der grossen Truhe. Langeweile kennen sie in Lyasa Lillegard nicht.

Das Haus ist erkundet. Man macht einen ersten Spaziergang, vielleicht in den nahen Wald. Der weiche, mit Moos überwachsene, Waldboden fühlt sich an wie ein Teppich. Und schaut man etwas genauer hin, entdeckt man zahlreiche essbare Pilze und Heidelbeeren. Frisch geschnitten, gepflückt und zu einem Essen verarbeitet, erfreut die Ernte am Abend die ganze Familie. Wer sich im Wald sachte und leise bewegt, begegnet sogar den gutmütig drein blickenden Elchen – ein Erlebnis!

Am nächsten Tag locken der See und das Boot an der hauseigenen Anlegestelle. Nach einer fachmännischen Instruktion von Mattias Jansson geht es in gemächlichem Tempo los. Der See mit den vielen Inseln, die Privatbesitz der anliegenden Hausbesitzer sind, dürfen genutzt werden, sofern man sie im gleichen Zustand zurück lässt. Bald einmal ist die Lieblingsinsel gefunden. Es wird ein Feuer gemacht, gebratene Köstlichkeiten gegessen und zwischendurch gebadet. Die Kinder entdecken Elchspuren und schliessen daraus, dass diese Riesen schwimmen können. Den Blick nach oben gerichtet, entdeckt man Seeadler, Reiher, Kormorane. Alles in allem ein Paradies für Naturliebhaber!

Wer genug vom See und dem Wald hat, macht einen Ausflug nach Växjö ins Abenteuerbad oder in einen Elchpark . Beides willkommene Abwechslungen in angenehmer Distanz.

Die Janssons sind perfekte Gastgeber. Sie stehen freundlichst mit Rat und Tat zur Seite, ansonsten halten sie sich zurück. Wir haben uns bestens erholt, die Ruhe genossen und würden die nächsten Ferien am liebsten wieder in Lillegard verbringen. Danke!!
