It is perfectly equipped that two families can spend easily memorable days. The quality of the house and all the equipment (kitchen, electric devices, sauna, furniture, etc.) are in a very good condition and everything worked perfectly well. From the first few minutes on we felt like being at home. The pool, just a 3 minutes’ walk from the house, was very nice, clean and perfect for our kids. We have rented a motorboat from the landlord, where we were able to reach the archipelago islands. These boat trips were unique and we never forget the beautiful nature around it. The weather was great the whole two weeks. We had plenty of warm sunshine and savoured the fantastic air. We had very active vacation days. We were able to use the tennis court and it was very good to do some very nice running and cycling tracks in the surroundings. The quiet location and the wonderful view from the house inspired us a lot. We also enjoyed our trips to Stockholm and the Svärdsklova Restaurant. The landlord always took good care of us and was much uncomplicated and very friendly and always had an open ear for our needs. We definitely would like to come back again, as we never had such good relaxing two weeks. Greetings from Munich September 2015
