Villa in Ingelstad (near Växjö) in Småland

Hej fellow Intervac friends

welcome to Ingelstad (20 km south of Växjö) in Småland. We live in a fairly new (2008) house next to the forest in a dead end street. A one level house with all modern necessities ... and a lovely pool to cool down if Swedish summer treats us well. We think it's a great location to discover Småland (and the southern part of Sweden if you don't mind driving around a bit).

Ingelstad is a little town and is part of Växjö municipality. There is not that much here but enough to keep things going (supermarket, 2 pizzeria's, a nice beach at the lake, ...). And if you want to wander around: Ingelstad is pretty much in the middle of things here in Småland. It depends on what your looking for. Maybe you just want to pop into the forest for a walk. In that case, just step out of our front door ;-). But if you want to go out for a stunning zipline adventure in the area ... that's possible too.

Småland has a lot of lakes and forest. In the city of Växjö there are 42 places to take a dip. So, no need to get overheated when it gets hot outside. Rent a canoe in the neighbourhood and enjoy nature from the water. Of course: don't forget to take your fika (coffee and something nice to eat).

Feel free to reach out if you have specific questions. And yes, the days are pretty short during winter but the scenery can be really magical with some snow. It's perfectly possible to do some cross country skiing on Sydostleden (the bike track very close to our house). Some things to give you an idea of where we are located:

  • - 20 minutes to the centre of Växjö (

  • - 20 minutes to national park Åsnen (

  • - 1 hour drive to the sea (Kalmar - Karlshamn - Karlskrona)

  • - 1 hour drive to the home of IKEA (Älmhult)

  • - 1,5 hour to Astrid Lindgrens world

  • - 2,5 drive to Göteborg/ West coast

  • - 3 hours by train to Stockholm (from Växjö)

We moved from Belgium to Sweden in 2018 and we have done many great home-exchanges in the past. Living in this new location, we are ready for some more. For 2020, we are mainly aiming for a winter exchange in Sweden (maybe somewhere with a guarantee of snow).
