Amazing time at Hjelleskate Manor!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the historic manor! The house is even nicer then described in the ad, the owners very nice and caring. The rooms are big and with a lot of historic charm! Everything is very well kept. Our 3 boys loved the place and on the last day we just saw 4 elks and some deer in front of the house - an amazing experience. We definitely can recommend this place to any traveller!

Einzigartiges Herrenhaus am Vänernsee

  • 5 of 5

Beeindruckendes historisches Gebäude mit wunderschönem Blick über den Vänernsee, den man über einen eigenen Zugang mit hauseigenem Ruderboot befahren und auch darin schwimmen kann. Ideal für 2 Familien oder größere Gruppe. Ein Auto ist allerdings fast unerlässlich, da der nächste Ort und damit Supermarkt, Restaurant, u.ä. fast 30 Minuten (per Auto) entfernt liegt.

Das Hauptgebäude ist weitläufig gestaltet, mit vielen stilvollen Räumen, in denen es sich auch bei schlechterem Wetter gut aushalten lässt. Um das Haus herum Natur pur! Wir, 4 Erwachsene, 5 Kinder, haben die Zeit sehr genossen. Sehr nette und entspannte Vermieterin, die das Haus selbst als Sommerhaus nutzt, wodurch z.B. die Küche auch sehr gut ausgestattet ist. Der einzige Nachbar, der auch das Haus und Garten betreut, ist ebenfalls sehr nett und hilfsbereit.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house with lots of history which is almost sensible, offering great sunset views over the Vaettern lake. This is a great place to relax and live in harmony with nature. We saw a moose crossing the lake swimming.

The house is an excellent location to take friends with you as it is large, although it feels cosy. The area is nice and calm. Don't expect a lot of things happening in the neighbourhood.

Al in all a great place that we enjoyed a lot.

Ein traumhaftes Haus

  • 5 of 5

Ein wunderschön gelegenes Haus direkt am Vänern. Sehr persönlich und individuell eingerichtet. Perfekt für Leute, die Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit verbunden mit einem herschaftlichen und fast musealen Charackter wollen.

Austattung komplett

Geiegnet für 2 Familien, die einen erholsamen Urlaub verbringen wollen.
