With 8 people in total we had really enough space and enjoyed the comfortable and excellent equipped house which is embedded in some huge rocks very close to the coast or harbour side of Lappetorp. Our kids jumped on these rocks and screamed: cooool. In this accomodation you feel a bit like unique with nature. Riding with the boat which can be rent with the house an exploration of the sea side and the beatiful islands all around is possible, too. In the house we were using the very well equipped kitchen for cooking and joined the nice living room open space and all around e.g. after some tours to nature or cultural places. All around it was a very pleasant stay which we would do definetely again. Thanks a lot!

Quiet, peaceful setting with fantastic views just 10 minutes away from the city centre. Our hosts were extremely helpful with suggestions on how to make the most of our week's stay in the wonderful city of Stockholm. Thank you for a very memorable week!

                                                                                          5 of 5

We had a very good week in this beautiful and well equipped house. Everything was clean and in good conditions and the landlord was very friendly and helpful. After a little crash-course on the use of the motorboat we went straight to the common pool which is also in an excellent condition. Same for the tennis court which we also frequently used. In a few words: The house offers a high standard and luxury and is very spacy and light due to the big windows and of course the bright walls. No bad smell, no noise pollution and pleasantly quiet and friendly neighbours (which are year-round inhabitants mostly) For the daily purchase I consider to drive to Nyköping which is only 12km away from Lappetorp. There are lots of shops for the daily needs as well as well as a pedestrian zone with lots of smaller stores in the center of the city. For your visit you should at least plan a little trip to Stendörren National Park as well as the little village Trosa which are both not more then a half hour away from Lappetorp. We loved our one week two family stay in Lappetorp and especially we enjoyed the multiple boat trips to the islands around. Whit a great Thank You to the friendly landlord and lots of greetings from Luxembourg
