About our home

Our newly renovated country house is situated in Västmanland, a central, yet wild part of Sweden where you enjoy the many lakes, the clean air and the wild woods filled with berries, mushrooms and wildlife.

The traditional red painted house was build 100 years ago to host workers in the near world heritage ironworks that have been preserved over the centuries, you can almost hear the sound of the workers hammers, and see them struggle with the ore.

Here, you have genuine wilderness at your doorstep and with the Swedish Right of Public Access you are welcome to explore the entire countryside. Why not put up your tent next to a lake and enjoy the sunset.

And as the dusk falls, you might see the moose, with his majestic crown of antlers almost silently tread out of the tree line to feast on the luscious grass in the fields.

At the hart of the house you'll find the large gourmet kitchen, this is where families and friends gather to plan the day, to eat a pancake breakfasts or to cook up a dinner with ingredients from the garden and the woods surrounding it.

You can also relax with some music in the library, watch a film from the big, cosy sofa in the TV room. Out in the garden you can spend a day with a book in the hammock or why not put you feet up in the greenhouse to watch as the tomatoes grow.

When the sun is up you can take the short walk down to the lake and enjoy the local small beach where you'd easily spend a day swimming, fishing and having pic-knicks.

When it is time to go to bed you have three bedrooms to choose from and in the library you'll find a fold out sofa for your guests. As you open the window in the master bedroom and let the fresh air in you'll fall asleep feeling like you're a part of the wilderness outside.
