Certainly you would like to be greeted soon in your well deserved vacation with the words "Välkommen i Sjökullen". Then you are exactly right here.
"Sjökullen" means no place name, but vividly describes the location of the Sweden villa. "Sjö" means "lake" and "Kulle" stands for hill or smaller mountain - a house on a small mountain on the lake. The house is located in the region Västergötland, near the town Svenljunga.
You can enjoy your well-earned free days in our house on the terrace and the 6000 sqm large forest property and look at heavenly peace on the lake. This can be reached after 80 m walk. If you continue for about 400 m, you will reach the larger lake, where a nice bathing place is waiting to be conquered by you. From the neighbors you will hardly notice, because the next houses are located about 400 meters away.
The house can accommodate up to 8 people, two families can spend your holidays here. Two large master bedroom provide the necessary space, in the upper there is also a cot. In each of the two smaller bedrooms one bed is offered. For two more guests mattresses are ready, which can be placed individually and as desired in the appropriate bedroom.
In the kitchen you will find modern electrical appliances. To use an oven, an electric cooker, a fridge with a small freezer, a dishwasher, a microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender and kettle are available.
You can also spend cozy evenings by the fireplace watching German television programs. A TV is also in the lower bedroom. Here you can only watch DVDs or bluerays. Of course, radios are also available.
It is possible to use a rowboat at the big lake. Four life-jackets are in the house. You are welcome to bring your own engine from home or rent an engine by appointment.
The boat is located on its own jetty at Stora Kvarnsjön. Also on Lilla Kvarnsjön, just a few steps from the entrance, you will find our private dock.
Long walks are offered in the idyllic area. But it is also not far to Gothenburg (about 1 hour's drive) or Jönköpping (also about 1 hour). The nearby coast of the Baltic Sea and the archipelago beginning under Gothenburg are also reached quickly. Many wonderful lakes are waiting to be discovered by you. You may even have discovered one of them when you arrived near the village of Holsjunga. But do not miss the detour to Ullared, where a shopping experience of a special kind awaits you. It pays to plan a holiday for this purpose. In winter you can ski in Isaberg and Ulricehamn.
Further excursion tips can be found on the linked homepage.
After exciting day trips, you can relax in the evening with a barbecue. And maybe you are lucky too and see the moose family sometimes showing up in the area. Many previous guests have succeeded so far, even on the property. Anyway, the evening would be the right time for it. By the way, deer like to walk over the property.
In Svenljunga 9 km away you will find a large supermarket, some specialty shops, a post office, banks and (hopefully not necessary) medical facilities.
