Welcome to our home! We are now ready to make plans for summer vacation 2019. Shorter city breaks can be interesting all year round. We look forward to see what you have in mind.

Our house is situated in a well established idyllic suburb Enskededalen close to Stockholm. Enskededalen is Sweden's oldest garden city and consists of small detached houses with beautiful gardens most part built in the 20-30's. Our house is however a spacious family villa built in 50's comfortable functionalistic style and recently refurbished. The location is idealic for a large active family that wishing to combine an easy home stay and explore beautiful medieval, yet always "trendy" Stockholm and the unique archipelago.
