The house is large and situated very prettily in a clearing in the woodland; visitors included a deer and red squirrels. There's plenty of space for up to six guests with two sparate living areas, a brand new kitchen with an induction hob, oven, dishwasher, large fridge and freezer. There are several places to eat outside, including a deck with table and parasol. One of the highlights (especially for the children) was the sophisticated hot tub, which we had exclusive use of. A small note is that there is just the one bathroom which contains the only toilet, a possible problem if there were six guests. The house is next door to that of the owners, Johannes and Ann-Charlotte, but the garden is so large, with a small orchard so that you don't feel overlooked. Ann-Charlotte and Johannnes were really helpful in ensuring that we were settled and were very knowledgable about the local attractions. There's lots to do in this part of Sweden; highlights included Vadstena, the Omberg, Lake Sommen, the Swedish airforce museum at Linkoping and the picturesque town of Soderkoping. The countryside locally is very pretty and the people are very friendly, with English widely spoken (thankfully as our Swedish is so limited) We'd certainly recommend this property and also this area of Sweden.
