House in Brännö, Sweden

 We are a family of four persons, Björn(52), Jeanette (41), Klara (6) and Ingrid (2½).
We live on Brännö, a little island situated just west of Gothenburg, the second biggest city of Sweden. Our house is built in 2005.
Björn also has two sons Anton (23) who lives in Berlin and Jacob (20) who lives in the city. But we don´t expect them to join us in our holiday.
We have a cat, Simon, born 6/12 2010. In the summer he will live outdoor, but will need water and dryfood once a day.
We have a small open boat (4,6m 10hp), 200 meters from the house, free to use.
300 meters in a different direction you can go swimming in the sea.
There are no cars on the island, only one cab. We have 3-4 bikes for adults and 3 bikes for children (age 3-8) and also a bikewagon for childrens.

Gothenburg is known to have the biggest amusementpark (Liseberg), in northen Scandinavia.
In summertime the islands population is trippled (from 850 people to 2-3.000).
The island is mentioned in old stories about Vikings. You can read more about the history if you follow the Wikipedialink below.
Nowadays it´s a paradise for walking amung the cliffs, swimming, boattrips et.c..
It´s well known for music event all year. In the summertime there is a music event with dancing to typical swedish music every thursday evening (dans på Brännö Brygga).
You reach the island by a ferry which depart almost every hour and takes about 20 minutes.

Our holidaytime: 11.07.-07.08. 2011
Best wishes from Brännö, Gothenburg (=Göteborg), Sweden.

Björn Fors and Jeanette Steen
