About the property

Holiday paradise for all Renovated house and annexe good place. Nature. Lake. Rare neighbors


Take all the big family Member or take several families together up to this spacious vacation paradise. It is peacefully situated on a lake, surrounded by nice neighbors. The place is newly renovated. The beautiful location and ample space provide the best framework for interaction, experiences and fun for the large family or two families.


The original dwelling was in 1975 when the family bought the place, only around 60 sqm on the ground floor with kitchen, living room and a chamber on the ground floor. There was a small bedroom on the first floor. The heating came from the wood stove in the kitchen and a small stove in the bedroom on the first floor. There was no water or run-off in the housing, and the toilet was down to an outdoor toilet stall.

Now the house is more than twice as large, and it is thoroughly modernized with all modern amenities: a large living room overlooking the lake, a large, fully equipped kitchen with all appliances, a guest toilet and a large shower room and 3 good sized bedrooms .

In addition, there are two annexes A and B, with a total of 4 bedrooms. In total there are 14 beds in Smålunda and 2 baby beds and 1 cot.

Annex A was formerly a barn, while Annex B was car garage and washhouse. Now contains two annexes combined 3 bedrooms, etc.

Until 1970, a local sawmill started on the lake, from which logs from felling in the forests around the lake was pulled ashore and up to the great circular saws. The sawmill is now Smålundas workshop and studio.

The sauna by the lake was formerly a shed, which provided shelter for the night for the sawmill workers, around the clock to look after the dunes where you made charcoal from wood waste from the sawmill.

The sawmill used a large, remodeled truck as forklift to transport stacks of pre-cut wood around the grounds. The truck was parked in the high garage at the entrance to the grounds.

Then there are the Smålunda a small playhouse, which can accommodate two adult beds as additional sleeping capacity, and a material building, which accommodates boards, lumber and Smålundas machinery and firewood for the wood stove and tiled stove.


The house has three bedrooms and large terrace above the lake.

Carver Karl-Emil Karlsson lived on the site until his death in 1972. In 1940-41 he dismantled his log cabin, which was very lonely on the other side of the lake, pulled the beams horse sled over the ice, and rebuilt the house at the top of the hill behind the sawmill. He needed the company of the other residents in the small village Flaten, says the story.

In our time the house has been considerably extended and thoroughly modernized, but with the piety of the style and the materials that characterize the traditional, beautiful Småland wooden houses.

The house is a gathering place for all meals and conversations. The ground floor of 106 sqm includes a large living room, which features a dining room for 20 and coziness area overlooking the lake, a small living room with a beautiful, old brick stove, and a large, brand new kitchen with all appliances and pantry. In addition, two hallways, a guest toilet and staircase to the first floor.

1st floor of 61 sqm includes a large landing and corridor with fitted wardrobes, the house 3 large bedrooms, all with good double beds and views, the two rooms down to the lake, and a large shower room.

In front of the house is a south facing large, open terrace which bathes in the sun from early morning and late afternoon.


Annex A (stable) is originally Karl-Emil's stable, where he kept a few horses and a few sheep that grazed around the grounds.

Annex A of 60 sqm comprises 3 large bedrooms. All have excellent double beds and room for children's beds, wardrobes, tables and chairs. Moreover hall and a large shower room with washing machine.

Annex B (pit house) was formerly Karl-Emil car garage, which he built and linked to his wash house where he washed her clothes in a wood-fired gruekedel.

Annex B is 30 square meters and now houses a hall with dresser, a toilet with a sink and a bedroom with a good double bed, table and chairs.


A trip to the sauna is very relaxing.

Enjoy an hour in the scorching sauna. Take a cool dip in the lake. Relax afterwards with a cold beer on a bench outside, eat a good dinner and slept like a baby at night, refined soul and body. There is a chamber next door, it can be used as extra double bed in a pinch.

The sauna is freely available to Smålundas guests.

Einfach traumhaft

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine ganz wundervolles Familietreffen auf Smålunda. Das Haus, das Grundstück, der See und der Kontakt waren einfach toll. Die Zeit stand still an diesem tollen Ort. Die Häuser haben Herz, man fühlt sich sofort willkommen. Alles was man braucht ist vorhanden. Alles auf den Bildern entspricht der Wirklichkeit. Eigentlich ist es sogar noch schöner. Herzlichen Dank für den unvergesslichen Urlaub. Wir wollen gerne wiederkommen.

Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Urlaub auf Smalunda.

Das Grundstück ist riesengroß und liegt direkt am See. Es gibt viele Plätze , wo man den Blick auf den See genießen kann. Das Haus ist gemütlich eingerichtet. Besonders hervorheben möchte ich die geräumige Küche, in der es Spaß macht mit mehreren zu kochen. Smalunda hat zwar Nachbarn, allerdings habe ich immer das Gefühl gehabt, völlig ungestört zu sein. Die nächsten Nachbarn sind sehr nett und sprechen deutsch: mich hat es beruhigt, dass ich in einem evtl. Notfall "Übersetzer" in der Nähe gehabt hätte. Wir haben unsere Zeit überwiegend am und auf dem See verbracht, weil wir besonders schönes Wetter hatten. allerdings haben wir auch einen Vormittag in Virserum eine Tour mit einer Fahrrad Draisine gemacht (2 std. - 100kr/pP) und einen HalbtagesAusflug nach Vimmerby und Lönneberga unternommen. Auch gibt es eine schöne Wanderroute in Virserum, die einige unserer Familie getestet haben. Alles war schön und hat uns viel Spaß gemacht.

Der Kontakt zu der Vermieterin war sehr nett. Sie spricht/schreibt sehr gut deutsch.

Wir würden sofort wieder dorthin fahren!!!

Dejligt stort sommerhus, i fantastiske omgivelser.

  • 5 of 5

Vi have sidste jul, givet vores børn, svigerbørn og børnebørn, en julegave, som ikke kunne byttes, og det var der heller ingen der ville.

Det var en uges ophold i Smålunda, men adgang til AVL.

1000 tak for leje af jeres dejlige sommerhus, som ligger i de fantastiske omgivelser.

Vi havde, en dejlig ferie, med besøg i AVL, på Kathult, Elgpark, Vimmerby, cykeltur på Smallsporet,og ikke mindst med "bare" hygge hjemme i sommerhuset, her blev der tilbragt mange timer ved søen,

vi var nede ved søen, morgen, middag og aften, det var så pragtfuld og afslappende.

Vi var også utroligt heldigt med vejret, sol og 20-25 grader, og næsten ingen vind.

Det passede os fint, så vi ikke blev "bagt" i AVL.

Ein Natur- Traum direkt am See!

  • 5 of 5

Das Anwesen, sowie das Haus sind wunderschön, natürlich und charismatisch! Ein Idyll direkt am See, mit eigenen Booten, Sauna und allem, was der Entspannung dient! Die Ausstattung und das Interieur sind super, uns stand alles zur Verfügung- eine multifunktionale Küche, Garten- und Angelutensilien, Internet und, und, und...Hier kann man sich nur wohl fühlen! Auch die Gastgeber, sowie die Nachbarn sind wahnsinnig freundlich, hilfsbereit und für jede Frage offen gewesen. Ein Rund- um- sorglos- Pakat! Alle wichtigen Atrraktionen, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Banken und sonstige Geschäfte sind mit dem Auto in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen.

Wir haben hier einen wunderschönen, erholsamen und naturnahen Urlaub verlebt! Für jeden, der das wahre Schweden von seiner urtümlichen Seite kennenlernen und der Natur nahe sein möchte, der perfekte Ort!

Et paradis i Sverige for familieophold

  • 5 of 5

Det er et eventyr at bo på Smålunda. Det er et sted med historie, charme, natur og æstetik.

Der er virkelig god plads og mulighed for aktiviteter, fx sejltur på søen, og udflugter rundt i regionen.

Til de 2 nærmeste mindre byer er kun 15 min i bil. Der finder du de supermarkeder og anden service som du har brug for.

Smålunda er en fin blanding af nyt og gammelt. Køkkenet er helt nyt. Værelserne gir minder om svensk folklore.

Jeg vil uden forbehold anbefale Smålunda til børnefamilier, voksne uden børn og naturelskere på studietur.
