Comfortable house south of Stockholm

Comfortable and cosy home with lovely garden.
Great area with sea, archipelago, lakes, forests, old castles and small towns.
Only one hour to our capital Stockholm.

We love our comfortable and cosy house. It is a very typical Swedish wooden house, built 1981.

On the groundfloor you find a master bedroom, a bedroom with a single bed, a study, kitchen and livingroom and also a bathroom with bathtub. From the kitchen you go straight out to the terrace facing southwards. There is also a covered verandah where we love to eat our meals during spring, summer and autumn. It is our best room especially during the long Swedish summer evenings.

In the basement is a bedroom with two single beds, a livingroom with fireplace and tv, a laundry with drying facilities, a storeroom and finally there is a bathroom with shower and sauna.

The garden is about 700 m2 and surrounded by a tall lilac hedge which makes it very private in summertime, even though there are neighbours around. There is a pond with waterlilies and many many flowers, but also a lawn for badminton and other games.

We also have our second home listed SE6148. It is in a lovely rural area with lakes, forest and peacefulness.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Stockholm/Skavsta 15 min, Arlanda 1h 45, Linkoping by KLM 1h -

We live three kilometres from the city centre of Nyköping in a nice suburb with friendly neighbours. What we like most of all about our area is the closeness to nature. Only a couple of minutes to a forest with tracks for jogging or just for walks among the trees. A kilometre away is the sea and 4 km by bike or car is the nearest sandy beach. Further away you find other beaches both with cliffs and sand. Here are also many lakes and a big archipelago. We enjoy going for walks along the sea any time of the year.

Nyköping is one of the oldest towns in Sweden and has a population of about 40 000 people.

Here is also an old castle, Nyköpingshus, with a museum. You find more about Nyköping on:

If you like fishing, like our oldest son, you can fish along the coast of the Baltic Sea without permission. He fishes for pike and pearch in the sea and harbour and for trout in the Nyköping river.

The archipelago is absolutely fantastic. Even without a boat you can reach islands at Stendörren (the Door of Stone) about 20 km north of Nyköping. You reach the islands by foot crossing small bridges. It is a fantastic place to visit.(see picture)

Boda borg is an adventure for both children and adults, 7 km east from us. There you work together as a team and solve different challenges. A perfect place to go on a rainy day. (see picture)

In Oxelösund you can also go to Upzon Adventurepark for adventures in the treetops with climbing and ziplines

For those interested in history the county of Södermanland is a heaven as you will find many old palaces within an hour by car from Nyköping. Some are open to the public like Gripsholms slott in Mariefred from the 16th century. Mariefred is a nice little town.

We recommend everyone to visit the pretty town of Trosa 30 km north. A very picturesque town with lovely wooden houses along a river which runs into the sea. Trosa has been loved by all our exchange families.

Another great thing about living in Nyköping is that Stockholm is easily reached by train, bus or car within an hour. Stockholm is a very attractive capital built on many islands, you are never far from water. In Stockholm you must visit the medival Old town with narrow streets and also The Royal castle, the Museum of Modern Art and Vasamuseum with a ship found after 300 years in the sea and it is very well preserved due to the brackish water in the Baltic Sea. The Vasa ship is the most popular tourist attraction in Sweden together with Skansen an open air museum and animal park..

Junibacken is a museum popular among all those who has read the books by Astrid Lindgren.

Gröna Lund is an amusement park on an island opposite the Old town. More information on:

The newest museum is ABBA the museum.

Kolmården, 50 min soutwards from Nyköping, a big animalpark with a dolphineshow and wild animals from most continents. It is spacious and set in nice surroundings.

Staying in our area will give you oppertunities to relax but also to be busy exploring the surroundings.
