About the property

Great secluded location, 4 people, 2 bedrooms, fireplace, TV, wheels, lots of rest

Directly on the edge of the forest, on a forest road that is easily passable on a clearing, lies the small, original house from the 19th century. Century: 'Prästlycke'. Here you can hear nothing but the sounds of nature! An ideal place to recover from the hardships of everyday life and just let your mind wander. The beautiful swimming spots on the coast are only about 10 to 15 kilometers away. A fishing lake, there are roughly 20 km away. Directly from the house, on small, hardly traveled paths, you can take quiet walks or bike rides. Many excursions are offered: In the famous 'Kingdom of Crystal' to see the glassblowers over the shoulders, or in the interesting city of Kalmar, on the great 'sun island' Öland, ... There is electricity in the house, drinking water comes from wells. Bathroom with shower and modern dry toilet. The water is heated by a boiler.

In the small living room with old wood floor and a small stove, you can end the day comfortably. Here we have also a TV with international channels and a DVD player for you. There is a small kitchen with fridge, cooker (2 plates) and a sleeping room for 2 persons (double bed). Top a steep staircase, where there is a romantic sleeping loft for 2 persons (twin beds).

We have tried in the renovation of this cottage, to preserve the originality and simplicity. It is ideal for people who seek peace and quiet and require little comfort.

average rating of 4.5 based on 10 reviews

Ein traumhaftes Fleckchen, an Gemütlichkeit kaum zu übertreffen!

  • 5 of 5

Wenn man Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit sucht, ist man hier genau richtig. Zwei Wochen reichten kaum aus, um die umliegenden Wälder zu erkunden. Unsere Empfehlung: Mückenspray und Pilzführer lohnen sich mitgenommen zu werden ;-) Mit dem Rad kann man viele urige Orte und schöne Badestellen erreichen. Die Stadt Kalmar mit ihrem wunderbaren Schloss, Öland mit der beeindruckenden "Borg Eketorp" und diverse Elchparks lassen sich mit dem Auto super erreichen.

Im Häuschen selbst haben wir uns unheimlich wohl gefühlt. Der Kamin, das niedliche Schlafzimmer unterm Dach... Alles war so gemütlich und liebevoll eingerichtet. Wir kommen immer wieder gern dorthin zurück.

Wir waren für 4 Nächte hier. Es ist wirklich sehr ruhig und man wird durch nichts gestört!

Zwei Betten befinden sich im Dachboden welcher nicht ganz so optimal zu erreichen ist. Sonst hat aber alles gepasst.

Car: recommended

Welcome to Southern Sweden east coast! Only about 10 kilometers from the coast 'Prästlycke' is - a small cluster of houses on the edge. Here you can in the silence of nature recharge your batteries and let your soul! Walks or bike rides on quiet, small paths, explore the forest, which starts right behind the house, or in the Baltic Sea just a few kilometers away bathe .... Many beautiful excursions also come to mind: In about 25 km away, the city of Kalmar is interesting with its historic castle.

For anglers: The nearest fishing lake is only about 20 km away!

The 'sun island' Oland is easy to reach via a causeway from Kalmar. Öland has a very interesting nature (the calcareous sandstone steppe Alvar, beautiful sandy beaches, 'Troll forest'). Here one finds also Lighthouse, castle ruins, a zoo, and the summer residence "Solliden" of the royal family, whose park is accessible.

A visit to the famous glass factories in the 'Kingdom of Crystal' is also highly recommended. Here you can see the glass being blown by hand and shopping glass crafts. In 'Kingdom of Crystal' is a watchable Elk Park, where you can see moose up close.

The amusement park 'Astrid Lindgren's World' in Vimmerby, about 160 km away, is a day-trip destination more easily accessible and a must for families!

Welcome to our typical Swedish little red wooden house!
