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.

A great place to spend holiday

5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay and have only positive things to say about Sallegarden. We stayed in Stinas Stuga with plenty of space and a really nice terrace. Everything worked and all information we needed was provided, both on practical matters but also on possible excursions. We can only recommend it to others that enjoys nature and needs to relax in idyllic surroundings.

Amazing

5 of 5
We spent a week at this amazing cabin , It was so clean and peaceful,we were also lucky to have fantastic weather.The cabin had amazing views across the lake and George was extremely helpful from when we first booked to we came home. Beautiful location everything we needed was there including a rowing boat which we used a few times. We explored the area by car and foot and ŵe also used the train .An amazing place to stay so relaxing.
