The listing description and photos are very accurate but the beautiful, peaceful outlook can only really be appreciated once you are there. The house is right on the lake, with its own little bay, and the use of rowing boat and canoe meant we could explore the little islands on the huge lake. It is surrounded by the forest and we saw wild elk in the field behind. The area is great for walking - lots of nature trails and the right to roam, of course. Take walking boots.
The property is clean and well maintained, with good equipment in the kitchen and a very spacious lounge/dining area, where you have lovely views over the lake.
There are good supermarkets in Almhult, close by, by car, which are open every day. There are some restaurants in Almhult, but nothing special, but with views like this, we mostly self-catered.
Attractions in the area include the Ikea Museum, which was fascinating, and the glass-making area.
Cecilia was very helpful and responsive, as was her neighbour Elisabet.
Just be aware that you need to clean the house yourself when you leave - there is no cleaning service.
Wonderful, well-maintained, comfortable property in a beautiful setting. There are walks directly from the property and nearby, quiet sandy beaches and well placed to visit the various attractions of Southern Sweden. Supermarkets and other amenities ten minutes away. Georg the owner is lovely and very helpful. Hope to visit again soon!
