The price as stated is for up to 2 persons and upon request we also provide the bed sofa for 1-2 and up to three tent beds/semi comfy beds at a additional cost.

The location of the cottage offers a number of outdoor nature activities. Only 100 meters away there is a nice lake. A small sandy beach access is approximately 1 km away. The nearby forests are great for leisurely walks and can also tease your taste buds with berries to pick at the end of the summer and delicious chanterelle mushrooms in the fall. If you like horse riding there is a big equestrian center with icelandic horses with tour riding arranged in the nice surroundings. We will help you to book the tour and you dont need any experience.
Other outdoor activities and family attractions nearby include the famous Göta Kanal, which was hand dug in the 19th century and connects the west and east of Sweden, an old Viking burial ground and rune stone, and a very old church. The burial ground and church are only a short drive down the road.
The cottage is perfect for a couple and could accommodate a small family with children. There are two big tourist magnets for families nearby: Kolmården Zoo (Scandinavias biggest) approx. 45 minute car ride North and "Astrid Lindgrens Värld" approx 1 hour south of us.
The easiest way to get to the University/City is by car (10 min) or by the bus (20-30min). The bus stop is right outside the cottage but only offers 10 rides per weekday day, in both directions.
