A beautiful house from 1867 with many original features such as traditional Swedish tiled stoves, but including many modern facilities. Located centrally in a village, it has a secluded and calm atmosphere, yet with the comfort of the nearby shops and cafés.
The house is the oldest residential building in the village, built in 1867 with many original features such as hand made windows, open fireplaces and traditional Swedish tiled stoves.
There is a kitchen with all modern facilities, oven, stove, refrigerator, freezer, microwave and a dishwasher. The bathroom offers a shower, toilet, washing machine and dryer. Except for a large dining room, the first floor also have two bedrooms, one with two single beds that can also function as a tv/living room and a smaller one with a single bed.
On the second floor there is one smaller bedroom with two single beds and a larger one with a single bed and an open fireplace.
There is a big garden with a secluded patio on the back of the house with a seating area and a barbecue. At the end of the garden flows a small stream.
They are free to use the entire house and garden, although we do have some untidy storage areas that we prefer to keep closed.
I will be there to welcome you, sometimes with my mother, at least until the afternoon/evening of the day of your arrival, depending on whether I need to take the train in Växjö. If you arrive later, I will leave the key in a small key safe next to the main entrance, where you can also leave it upon your departure if I haven't been able to get back before you leave. Of course I try to meet the guests either during their arrival or departure, but I think it's more important that they feel free to arrive and leave when it suits them the best.
Since it is an old house and we try to keep as many of the original features as possible, there are some high thresholds and the stairs are quite steep. It may be worth noting for people with disabilities and for those traveling with small children.
My name is Elin, I am 25 years old and I study Ethnology and Art History in my hometown Uppsala and Stockholm. I like to travel and enjoy books, movies and music.
I am spending this summer taking care of and renting out the family summer house since we are not able to spend much time here this year. We felt that it would be a shame for it to go to waste since it is such a lovely place to spend the summer in. We have had the house for about ten years and have spent a lot of time and effort on restoring it.
My family on my mother’s side is from this region and I’ve spent every summer here since I was born so I am happy to show you around and help you with anything that you might need. I speak Swedish, English and French and I’m trying to learn some German as well.
