House in Viken, Sweden

Our home is situated in a small town some 10 miles from the city of Helsingborg (pop 120,000); from Helsingborg, you reach Copenhagen in Denmark within an hour, either via ferry and car or train, or by car or train across the Swedish-Danish bridge. Our town is an old "gentrified" fishing village, with a golf course, an excellent beach, small boat harbor, and several upgrade restaurants during summer; it is also close to the Kullaberg nature preserve, with cliff climbing, diving, a further golf course, etc. The area is known for its many artists and for local pottery. One of Sweden's (very) few vineyards is nearby – the restaurant is open during summer.

In the winter time we have a skiing resort with 9 pistes and 5 ski lifts (http://www.sydhalland.se/utflykt-alpint.shtm) app. 30 minutes with car from the house. Artificial snowcanons guarantee snow  from Christmas - March.
Our house consists of 4 bedrooms, one office room, two large living rooms, one bathroom, two smaller W.C:s and a big laundry room with an additonal shower. We have a wireless computer network for your convenience, as well as a huge collection of books and dvd movies, mostly in English. We have a ten minutes walk to the beach.
