Welcome to Stena house!
This very special home has been in our family for more than 150 years. Partly transformed in the 1920s into a church for the pentecostal Bethania, it has an interior spaciousness that can hardly be guessed from the outside.
The for Sweden very characteristic red-and-white house was built using materials from the medieval village church when a new grander one was built in the 1840s. This includes several doors dating back to the 1600s.
The former church hall is now the combined dining- and living room, complete with an old church organ and a large fireplace for cool evenings. Downstairs is also a kitchen, a sitting room with a sofa bed, eat-in kitchen, bathroom and a small glass veranda. Upstairs are two bedrooms - a single and a double - and an attic with two spare beds.
The village is famous for its unique viking stone, believed to describe a testament. The stone was discovered in one of the church walls during renovations in 1937 and displayed next to the church, where there is now also a summer cafe.
The property is beautifully nested between the forest and the open fields. In the forest, you are free to pick mushrooms and blueberries, of which there are plenty. Elks and deer often wander close to the house. The sun sets over crops, grazing cows and horses, right outside your door. Gothenburg is just one hour away, the beautiful Lidköping, with its cafes and lakeside beaches, less than 30 minutes.
Welcome to a very relaxing vacation at Stena house!
