Make a holiday rental home or cottage in Smaland, Sweden your home away from home

Smaland is a historical province of five counties, located in the south of Sweden. Home to three national parks, the area offers a great range of outdoor pursuits – making it an ideal holiday destination for those seeking an active break. Accommodation can be found in the form of log cabins, charming cottages and other authentic homes in Smaland.

Things to do in Smaland, Sweden

The main draw of Smaland is the great outdoors. Smaland has a series of lakes that can be explored by canoe, or you can hike or cycle around the area to get your bearings, if you prefer. The lakes also offer some relaxing fishing opportunities, especially in the Hultsfred area. Smaland has three national parks, with Stora Mosse the most well-known for its hiking and bird-watching opportunities.

The east coast of Smaland, which stretches nearly 200km from Vastervik to Torsas, is home to over 10,000 islands, and some of Scandinavia’s most beautiful scenery. You can take a scenic drive down the coastal stretch, and discover sandy beaches, great swimming opportunities, and a mix of quiet scenic spots and busier tourist towns. Vastervik, Monsteras and Kalmar are three of the bigger towns that you will encounter, and offer some great shopping and dining. Kalmar Castle and Kalmar Art Museum are also recommended stop-offs.

A family holiday can be enjoyed in Smaland, as there are a great amount of activities that will appeal to both children and adults. Astrid Lingren’s World – located in Vimmerby, and named after the famous Swedish author of Pippi Longstocking books, is a 120,000 square meter theme park where children can meet characters from the books. Skiing, horse riding, dog sledding and golf are just some of the other fun activities that can be found in Smaland.

Virkelig pæn og velholdt, ren og med alle fornødenheder. Dejlige omgivelser og skønt at kunne købe friskpresset æblemost, friske æg, hjemmelavet saft og syltetøj fra gården hver dag. 3km vandresti i 'baghaven'. Lidt langt til indkøbsmuligheder (20min kørsel hver vej) - men det gjorde ikke noget - man skal bare planlægge indkøbene. For alle, der elsker natur og svensk imødekommenhed. Mulighed for sauna og badesø lige ved. Ville elske at prøve at holde sommerferie her også.

We felt like the owners were kind enough to lend us their house, as it is marvelously equipped. To me, this cottage combines the best of Swedish style and Dutch gezelligheid. I would call it perfect if it was not for the road which is a tad too close. Apart from that, we had a lovely stay and are already planning to return in winter to see how this beautiful region changes its trees' colors. Many thanks to Edith and her swift and efficient communication, and congratulations on this little jewel of a home.
