About This Listing
A clean, comfortable, and charming typical Swedish cottage located in a small village located just 10 minutes away from the town of Linköping. The vibrant 19th century, red and white cottage is placed smack dab in the middle of Östergötland farm fields. This gem offers a quiet location for travelers to rest and relax or you make it a perfect base for your trip to southern Sweden.
The cottage is divided into an entryway, living room, full kitchen and a half bath. The living room is decorated with a small bed sofa, a big LCD-TV and a charming fully functional fireplace, there is also room for additional tent beds if you are a larger group of people ( max 6) The kitchen is fully equipped and ready to be cooked in if you decide to dine in.
The half bath on the ground floor has a sink and toilet. New for the year is a brand new renovated attic, with a steep staircase to the rustic second floor. This area consists of a comfortable Hästens double bed and a full bath, wc, shower and sink.
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 cottage is a strictly non-smoking and peaceful location and we appreciate it that way, so if you are looking for parties and nightlife we recommend that you stay in Linköping.
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.
The location is also very suitable for travelers looking for easy access to the highway E4, which is just 7 minutes away or for travelers needing a place to stay before an early flight out of the Linköping Airport (10-15 min), which offers daily flights to Copenhagen (SAS) and Amsterdam Schiphol (KLM). The nearby train station in Linköping also let travelers reach Stockholm in an hour and a half and Copenhagen in three hours. There is also a 90 mins bus connection from Linköping direct to Stockholm/Skavsta several times a day. Stockholm/Skavsta is a Ryanair Hub for Sweden with tons of direct destinations all over Europe.
Sheet covers and pillow cases for the
duvets are not included in the rent, BYO or let us provide them for 25 SEK/set. No breakfast or cleaning is included in the price.

The great surroundings, nice gravel walking paths through the landscape. Since we live on the same lot we care for your visit and we got a beach access with a private dock behind our house. You are welcome to use it with respect. In the lake we provide row boats, there are also a lot of fish for angling in the lake.
We had a great time staying in Magnus and Anna's cottage. The cottage was perfect for our weekend getaway from Stockholm and had all the right amenities. Magnus was super helpful with tips for things to do around the cottage and rainy day activities. The cottage is a quick drive from E4 and Linköping but still felt remote and was super quiet. Would definitely recommend the cottage to our friends. Thank you!!
Magnus and his family are delightful, discreet and attentive.
The typical Swedish accommodation is enjoyable and welcoming (a bit small for 5 peoples) but the change of scene is guarantee!!!!
We made a very nice stay in this accommodation!
Thanks a lot!

We had a really pleasant night in this really beautiful little house. There's only one bed but we were four and with the couch and another camp bed it was Really convinient. We didn't meet Magnus but he gave us all the informations we needed before our arrival.
The ekstroms made us feel very welcome. They let us know that they would be on holidays at the time of ourt arrival. On arrival in the middle of the night, after a little searching we found the key to the cottage and we were surprised by the cosiness of the place. In the fridge we found fresh eggs for breakfast, which was a nice gesture.
Very lovely and charming house at the lake-side! Uncomplicated communication and a warm welcome from the host family. We really enjoyed - many thanks!

About the Host, Magnus
We are a family of four. Magnus, a financial planner, Anna, an environmental consultant and our two kids Måns & Alva. We live in the tranquility of the picturesque countryside, just outside Linköping in Sweden.
We are easy going and like to spend our spare time in Nice, France, and travelling the rest of the world. We have two objects for rent: a nice compact studio in Nice, nicely(!) located in the French riviera and a typical Swedish red little cosy cottage on our lot, approx. 50 meters from our house. This in a picturesque countryside setting in the middle of the farmlands and between a small beautiful lake and a forest, just 10 minutes outside the City of Linköping.
We are eager to meet other people and share our piece of paradise!
