“We are glad to recommend this house and family in Strangnas. The house is comfortable, cosy and practical. Well situated in the center of Sweden if you want to go to Stockholm (45min away), north, south or to Norway (very expensive living -_-). You can easily find time to visit Stockholm (beautiful!)castles, churches, go swimming in one of the thousand lakes around, get lost in one of the thousand forests, pick berries, have an afternoon tea or coffee with some great pastries (ancestors to the American cakes! With Ryan Air it is easy to fly into Sweden. Aestan and Anna and their 2 children are cool (American style -_-)and very open and helpful so an exchange of houses is more than just a question of houses!”

Where is it?
Strängnäs is a cosy small town (some 15,000 inhabitans) at the shores of the big lake of Mälaren. The apartment is just 150 m from the central commercial square, with two bakeries. You walk futher on some 300 m to the historic part of the town with its cathedral from the year of 1300. You can stroll around with Google and see for yourself!
The harbour is located in the centre of the town. Adjacent to the quays there are restaurants ranging from fine to ordinary. There is also the central beach. See also www.strangnas.se.
Just 15 km away (Mariefred) there is the Gripsholm castle from the 16th century, containing the largest collection in northern Europe of portraits (paintings). Strängnäs is surrounded by prosperous farmland and large forrests to the south.
Stockholm is some 45 minutes away by direct train or car (highway). The back side of the house is very suitable for a family with small children The house is ideally located for those who want to explore the middle of Sweden or just relax in a tranquile area surrounded by forrests and shores of Lake Mälaren.
