Go 'back-to-basic' for a while! Here you can enjoy nature, dark nights, silence. Go for a walk and perhaps you will meet an elk. And the city of Gothenburg is not far away!
“Spent a couple of days in the cottage as a lone retreat and got everything I needed. A cozy place to sleep in and cook, socializing in the evenings. The areas are beautiful, suitable for walking and hiking. A couple of nice lakes nearby. Endless forests. The cottage has everything I needed. Best to fall asleep in the hammock after lunch in the midday sun!”
Our lovely guesthouse is rurally located in the very scenic area of Öijared, only 30 km from Gothenburg. The area provides lots of possibilities for recreation with beautiful foot- and cycle paths, Nääs Castle, café, crafts and only 1,5 km from one of Northern Europes largest golfcourses. See also our advertisment on Airbnb on our unique and wonderful loftroom in our barn for two persons. We welcome all unprejudiced and lovely people.
“Wow! What a great experience in the small rural town of Öijared.. Helena is a magnificent host who pulls out all of the stops for her guests. I'd highly recommend a quaint little getaway to the Swedish countryside at Helena's cottage. The location of her place is the perfect blend of rural and accessible, as it removes you from the hustle and bustle of town/city life yet still keeps you close enough so that you're not inconvenienced in the least. The cottage itself is absolutely spotlessly situated on Helena and her husband's property and is even more quirky than the pictures show. The finishings in the cottage are mostly done by Helena and it adds such a flavor of authenticity to the stay. We enjoyed spending time in the cottage so much that it almost made it hard for us to get out and see the sites in the area. The local attractions were a surprising treat! Hääs Castle is right down the road and is a worthwhile endeavor to learn a bit about Swedish living in the late 1800s. The natural scenery in the area offers a plethora of outdoor options ranging from hiking to golfing. Helena gives some local insight as part of the stay, and the hidden gem for us was the trek out to Mjörn Lake (which was absolutely stunning). We highly recommend this trip for anyone looking for incredible hospitality in a beautiful setting with a wonderful host. We plan on going back again soon!”
“We had a last minute idea to go away for the weekend due to nice weather forecast and could have not chosen a better place! The cottage is only 20min away from Göteborg, right by a beautiful lake offering stunning view! It is facing south which is just perfect to watch the sunset over the lake and enjoy the afternoon sun (if you are in Sweden it’s a big deal!). The surrounding is perfect for walks, cycling or going for a romantic boat ride - the owner has her own boat and kindly offered us to use it. The cottage is new, stylish, cosy, beautifully designed and give enough space for a couple. There is even a sauna! The private jetty is perfect to sunbathe or just generally be right on the water. The area is super quiet but also only a short car journey to the supermarket. The communication went Swedish-English and very prompt but when we got there both owners spoke perfect English and they were super nice and accommodating. We will definitely be back! I can’t believe we found this hidden gem!”
