A completely newly renovated and charming cottage in the so-called Listerland. It is a peninsula that juts out between Blekinge and Skåne and is a really beautiful place! The cottage has been chosen to be kept in the family because it is a parental home and has in recent years undergone a major renovation. On the ground floor there is a brand new kitchen as well as a living room and toilet with shower. Upstairs are two bedrooms. One with a double bed and one with two single beds. The garden has a sheltered back where you have a large lawn with outdoor furniture and barbecue.
Hörvik is characterized by a modern fishing industry, even though the older buildings have been preserved to some extent. Here are cozy harbor taverns. Hörvik is almost merged with Krokås, a small fishing village with its own harbor. West of Hörvik is Hörviks Hallar, one of the area's most spectacular rock baths. If you have good condition, this is the place to go if you appreciate soft-coiled stone slabs and impressive rock formations. From here, the view towards Hanö is magnificent and made for a good picnic basket. Nearby is also the mythical cave Hallahåle, which has long been popularly known both as a hiding place for a Viking treasure, and as a descent to an underground passage to Hanö. According to legend, the cave will close its passages to unauthorized persons, hence the difficulties in finding its opening. East of Hörvik - Krokås is the Spraglehall nature reserve with its incomparable views and its beautiful beach meadows. During the summer you also have a popular picnic concert in the old quarry.
There are several cozy coastal villages besides Hörvik, for example Hällevik. Hällevik is the oldest and most famous of Lister's fishing villages. The village is located by a deep bay, beautifully embraced by the two headlands Björkenabben and Kråkenabben - the latter a well-known orchid and bird place. The old village center has traditional wooden houses and faces the harbor with its well-preserved old stone huts. Here you will find a guest harbor, food and various shops, smokehouses, a fish shop and a harbor restaurant. During the summer, the small art gallery is also open, as well as the handicraft shop and an ice cream café. There is also a charming fishing museum, which provides insight into the village's history. In Hällevik it is close to everything. The nice beach is just a stone's throw away, as is Stiby Backe, for those who crave cooling beech forest and beautiful views. There is also an outdoor pool with pools and a water slide.
The Blekinge archipelago is rich in good fishing areas and you are also close to Mörrum with salmon fishing. If you want to go out in the archipelago, there are archipelago tours and fishing trips that go out from several places nearby. From Nogersund there are boat trips out to Hanö which is a real archipelago gem! Warm welcome!
The area is also called “Sveriges Have”, the garden of Sweden, because of its beautiful nature, sea and archipelago.

Angling in the river of Mörrum is very popular, but also many of the small lakes in the area attract a lot of angling enthusiasts.

The long stretch of coast and the many lakes have a lot to offer both for fishing enthusiasts as well as for those who just want to relax in the beautiful nature.

Sweden has been admitted to UNESCO's list of world heritage for its unique coastline. Middle and north of Sweden have countless rivers, lakes and streams criss-crossing the country. Sometimes you get the feeling that the country is swimming with only forests and fields acting as links between rivers and lakes. This is particular noticeable for the middle part of Sweden where the ice age left plain tracks. Thousands of lakes fill the gorges created when the ice retracted to the North.
At the exact place where the river Mälaren with fresh water meets the salt water from the Baltic you will find Stockholm spread across 14 islands and islets. But there is more: The Stockholm skerries just a few minutes sailing from the capital is comprised by a total of 24.000 islands and islets.
The Siljan lake is located in the middle part of Sweden called Dalarna. The lake and the surrounding towns are regarded as the historical centre of the country. From here, Sweden gradually becomes more raw and deserted. In Norrland, the only sound you hear in the enormous forests is from the roaring rivers.
For centuries, the rivers have been used for transporting logs to the coast. And where the rivers flow into the ocean is where the first settlements were founded several thousands of years ago. Höga Kusten in the north-eastern Sweden is permitted on UNESCO's list of world heritage for its unique coastline.
Sweden has countless activities for children, young people and old people. It all starts when you book a holiday home or a cottage in Sweden, so the entire family has a god basis. Afterwards you have lots of room for social intercourse, fun and games as well as instructive activities for the entire family.

Småland is also perfect for bike rides, horseback riding, canoeing and fishing.
If you have booked a holiday home in the middle or northern part of Sweden, you will find the landscape dominated by deep valleys, plateaus and vast fir and pine forests.

Take a refreshing dip in the forest lake and catch a fish for dinner. While the children play in these beautiful settings, mum and dad can prepare the freshly-caught fish in the open-concept kitchen and the grandparents can relax with a glass of wine on the sofa. If you have plans of going to Sweden, book a holiday home with DanCenter Holiday Rentals.
The midsummer party in Sweden is truly unique. To many it is a symbol of the lightness, the light and the life force symbolic of the Nordic summer. Midsummer in Sweden is the biggest celebration of solstice in Scandinavia.
When the most Swedish of Swedish parties approach, the whole country is exited. Midsummer is traditionally a feast celebrated with family and friends, but if you are a tourist you are welcome to join the festivities. It is celebrated all over the country - by the coast, in the skerries, by idyllic lakes, in the mountains or one of the islands. All is good, as long as there is plenty of pristine and diverse nature around.
