With stunning views, our retreat from busy London is situated on Värmdö, in the Stockholm archipelago. Perfect to get away from it all.
A normal day consists of us having breakfast on the decking overlooking the glittering sea, then swim or sail until it's time for the afternoon barbecue with grilled salmon and a nice glass of chilled white. The house is also perfect for day trips further out into the archipelago or in to beautiful Stockholm with its many restaurants, museums, amusement parks, shopping etc. We are sure that whatever your interests, a week here will put the wind back in your sails. /Mats, June 2009
PS. The house has all mod cons from the kitchen's ceramic hob to the living room's projector, 50 inch plasma screen and wireless internet access. Note that this is however not a modern hotel but an old family home with portraits on the walls and spices/coffee etc in the cupboards. Re. sleeping 9, note that the main house dining table only seats 6 comfortably.
PPS. If you are looking for a smaller house, see P496658
PPPS: Avoid scammers, when you have booked, confirm with us per telephone.
About the weather.. Most people don't realise that Sweden has the most sunshine in Europe after Spain and, enjoy better summers than most European capitals.
From the house guest book: "We've had a super relaxing time. Swimming early morning before breakfast. Sun, sea, peace. Would like to come again. All the best, Turnbull family, Norfolk, UK".
We were all looking forward to our week in the Archipelago and this property certainly lived up to our expectations. The location was excellent, the children loved swimming in the sea and the lake, using the boat and the bikes. Add to this the technology, the selection of films and games and everyone was happy. The three houses worked very well for us, all were clean and well equipped. The owners were very helpful a all times and provided us with a mobile number that we could ring if we needed help.I would certainly recommend this property. We had children with us that ranged from 7 to 16 and they all loved it.
We had a fantastic holiday in Sweden. The location of the house is absolutely stunning, with lots to see and do. We swam in the sea and in the lake, took out the rowing boat in the inlet ad through the canal. The bikes were great and we took them over to Sandhamn and Runmaro which made sight seeing a lot easier. Hot tubs every night with a glass of wine, overlooking the bay....gorgeous!! Lots of useful shops and cares in the local village (15 minutes walk). I wish we'd booked for two weeks.
Three teenage boys were very happy too which is quite an achievement!! We'll definitely be back. Thank you so much Mats and Caroline for sharing your beautiful home.

Mats;we had a great time at the house,quiet,sorry very quiet,peaceful and wonderful nature. However, the price is too high for what is advertised. Bicycles had flat tyres and no pump,rowing boat needed a lot of attention before using. Not sure where the 21 towels where?A little heath robinson I'm affraid. Great location but well overpriced.
Golf: Three major courses close to house:
Plus a couple of less high brow ones.
