Quiet location with panoramic views over the lake and yet within easy access of both Alingsas and Gothenburg. The bath house was absolutely charming but we thought the lake was too cold for swimming. Owners very friendly and helpful. We went cycling in Gothenburg, which was lovely, but our best days out were north of Gothenburg on the spectacularly rocky coastline. It is a great place to stay but, in our opinion, guests wanting to see Sweden need to be willing to get in the car and travel quite far each day. Only real downside was the weather - it was wetter even than Scotland!

The owner was very friendly and extremely helpful with suggestions of places to visit and regular weather bulletins. The children loved the house, garden, barns and table tennis. There were lots of child-friendly places to visit in the area. Thoroughly recommended."
