                                                              Truly memorable holiday, perfect setting

                                                              We would highly recommend Gammal Affar in Uvana for anyone looking for a taste of Sweden. It offers a traditionally Swedish summerhouse with everything that goes with it – open fires; guest stugor in the grounds; perfect lake at the end of the garden; boat and canoes; sauna; forest; flora and fauna … a perfect setting. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable for our three generations (7 of us), and beautifully decorated and furnished. It was clean and tidy when we arrived and Jackie was available at all times to answer any queries we had during our stay. The open fires made us cosy on the cooler evenings, the kitchen was well equipped and the dining room made every meal feel like a special occasion. The new hot tub was a lot of fun, (plenty of room for all of us) and the sun deck was great too. We have some amazing photos of the lake taken from the boat and bathing place, as a reminder of a truly memorable holiday. We wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the good weather (our first few days were cold and wet)! By the way, we would recommend a visit to the Varmland Elk Park run by a young English guy, James. He and Jamie offer an interesting tour with lots of information and facts about Swedish Elk, as well as really hands-on contact with elks there. Thanks, Jackie, we hope to be back again in the future!
