What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Schöne Lage etwas erhöht an einem Felsen in einem ruhigen Ferienort. / Leider keine Endreinigung zubuchbar, somit muss man am letzten Ferientag selbst den Putzlappen in die Hand nehmen.....”
Steffi - Rheinland-Pfalz  (Urlaub mit größeren Kindern, July 2018)
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Die große Veranda und der schöne Garten am Rande der Felsen gelegen. Auch die Küche war sehr gut eingerichtet. Insgesamt hat uns die einfache, aber liebevolle Einrichtung und das Haus sehr gut gefallen.”
Recommendations for future guests
“Lohnenswert ist auf jeden Fall ein Ausflug in die Stadt Smögen. Die Insel Orust ist landschaftlich auch sehr reizvoll.”

About the holiday home

Welcome to this beautiful holiday home, set by the seaside in Skalhamn, 12 kilometres north of Lysekil. It is located near the charming harbour and there's an excellent child-friendly beach in the area.

The two-storey house has a kitchen, a living room, and a bathroom on the bottom floor. The living room is equipped with a cosy wood-burning stove, a sofa suite, a TV with a few basic Swedish channels, and free WiFi. In the bathroom, there's a WC, a washbasin, and a shower.

A steep set of stairs takes you up to the second floor where there are two bedrooms and a mezzanine. One bedroom is equipped with two single beds, the other has two high-standard mattresses, and there's another two mattresses on the mezzanine. The ceiling are low and sloped up here, with a ceiling hight of 175 centimetres in the middle.

The house has a spacious, partly roofed terrace with outdoor furniture and a garden grill. If you need to do laundry, there's a washing machine, and a dryer in the basement, you access this room from the outside of the house. The house is set on a hilly, natural garden plot with an outdoor shower.

Lysekil is a beautiful and very popular summer town, offering an array of restaurants and activities, such as concerts, seal safaris, and the aquarium Havets Hus. The town is known for being one of northern Europe's best places for canoeing, diving, and fishing. It is the perfect base for those who wish to enjoy the beauty of the archipelago. Take a boat trip and admire the islands, or rent a kayak! There's also a beautiful promenade by the beach, from which you can enjoy the view.

If you are interested in history, don't miss the ancient rock carvings on the cliffs of Brodalen! History lovers will also enjoy the museum Vikarvet where you can learn about stone cutting and fishing in the area, as well as see the large collection of ships. For those who love swimming there's an excellent, child-friendly beach by Govik. There's another called Pinneviksbadet, with shallow water, public bathrooms, and a kiosk. You can also swim by the dock Trampen in the harbour. Those who want to go golfing can visit the new 18-hole golf course in Holma.

Another must-see is the beautiful Stångehuvud with it's cliffs that have been naturally sculpted by the melting ice at the end of the last ice age. Stångehuvud is an eight minute drive from Lysekil.

Welcome to a lovely holiday home!

About the area

About Lysekil

West coast Bohuslän Warm cliffs, red boat houses, perfect fishing places, water sports and exciting tourist attractions are just some out of many experiences that Bohuslän on the Swedish west coast can offer you. There are a lot of activities for families with children. For instance you can visit an amusement park or a zoological park, exciting fortresses or museums where you can explore and experience.

Bohuslän has its own beautiful archipelago. Go visiting the Koster islands in the northern part of Bohuslän where you can enjoy the beautiful nature on your rented bicycle. You can also travel by boat to Bohuslän from Strømstad, a nice town, especially during the summer.

Sotenäs municipality consists of both large and small communities. Smögenbryggan is the most famous tourist attraction in the area. People from near and far come in order to see the lively boat traffic, shop in the stores and enjoy a nice meal in the cosy restaurants nearby.

Lysekil is situated in the outermost part of the boat harbour, and even if you stay in the centre of the town, the water and the boats are always quite near. A walk in Gamlestan is also worth experiencing.

The Skaftø peninsula is now known as the “salt island”, Saltøen, thanks to the Swedish television series of the same name. Picturesque places like e.g. Fiskebäckskil, Grundsund and Rågårdsvik are all well-attended in the summer.

At Törn and Orust there are nice bays and a beautiful nature. There are a lot of boats, and from Tjörn into the archipelago you can go on different boat trips. The short distance to Göteborg makes a day trip to Liseberg perfect.
