Welcome to this fantastic little village "Flatebyn" which is located in the southeastern part of Munkedal municipality. Here the best of two landscapes meet, Munkedal in Bohuslän and Valbo-Ryr parish which is located in Dalsland. Flatebyn is a charming village reminiscent of "Bullerbyn" in Astrid Lindgren's saga, with falu-red houses and white knots. The farm was previously an old estate where the master of Swedish weaving art Johanna Brunsson was born in 1846, before there was a school. Today it is furnished as a party room.

To the right of the kitchen is a small room and further to the next room is the living room with TV. A wooden staircase leads up to the upper floor where there is a spacious loft with two single beds, a double bedroom and a simple bathroom with shower and toilet. WiFi access. There are two patios and a barbecue on the plot on a large lovely terrace. The homeowners live on the farm, secluded from the cottage.

There are many nice bathing spots in nearby lakes. For those of you who like to hike, the Viksjöleden is a nice hiking trail where you can also get there by bike.

Guided tours can be booked in both Dalsland and Bohuslän for those who are interested. In the yard there is a well-visited flea market "Loppisladan i Valbo-Ryr" which opens by appointment. Cycling or renting a canoe, at "Kaserna" which is located in Munkedal, begins the more than 40 km long Flottarleden which has historically been a transport route for timber to Munkedal. For those who have their own canoe or kayak, Flottarleden is about 2 km from the cottage. Munkedal has nature areas worth visiting, everything from sea and fjord environments such as Saltkällan with its sandy beach and salt baths to deep forests with lakes and rivers. The Örekil River, which is a popular river for salmon fishing, flows through Munkedal. From the cottage you make easy day trips to Havets Hus in Lysekil, Nordens Ark, Smögenbryggan, Torps Köpcentrum in Uddevalla, Kroppefjälls Naturreservat with a great opportunity to see moose, Akvedukten in Håverud and Dalslands Kanal are also well worth a visit.

Good to know! One part of the school is today furnished as a party room that you can also rent, where there is space and crockery / cutlery for about 50 people. If you prefer to be outside, there is also a patio under a roof by the brewery where there is room for as many guests. Perfect if you want a larger event for a wedding, confirmation or maybe a corporate event. In the yard there is an apartment for two people and a cottage with room for four people if you are a larger party or several families, you can book both as tips.

All of our holiday homes in Sweden are surrounded by the scenic Swedish nature. DanCenter has numerous options across Sweden from Skåne, Småland, near Stockholm and in the Swedish skerries north of Gothenburg.

Do you want to experience Sweden through the eyes of the children's author Astrid Lindgren? We can offer you the classic Swedish holiday home experience. Book an authentic, cosy, small, red wooden cabin on the edges of a pine forest along a beautiful lake in open country side. Your holiday in a traditional cabin in Sweden can help you reduce stress and forget all your troubles.
As a contrast to the idyllic cabin in Sweden you can also book a lovely, big holiday home. DanCenter offers different luxury holiday homes with room for the entire family. In Sweden we have big holiday homes fitting the entire family or groups up to 20 people. These include houses with swimming pool and whirlpool that you can enjoy both during summer or winter. Take a dip and cool off with your family on holiday in Sweden and the sun shines from a clear sky. You can also enjoy the warm water and a glass of champagne in the outdoor whirlpool on a cold winter's night. Or during the autumn break when the children splash in the pool and you enjoy the beautiful views of the colourful leaves falling from the trees.
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. The Swedish mountains provide plenty of opportunities for skiing during the winter. Sweden has lots of family-minded ski resorts.

Sweden has beautiful forests from north to south. To the south, in Skåne and Småland, where DanCenter can offer you a big selection of holiday homes and cabins, you will find the hardwood forests. This area is also known for its moose-safaris, a unique nature experience. Such an experience is a guarantee for talks when you return to the holiday home or cabin. 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. Here you can bring your family berry and mushroom picking, enjoying the beautiful flowers in the spring or the may different colours of the leaves in the autumn. 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.
