About the holiday home

This sweet little holiday home is set in Galtabäck, south of Varberg, and overlooks the sea and the beautiful fields by the beach. The area is a child-friendly, residential area with mainly summer houses and there is very little traffic. The cottage is just a few hundred metres away from the harbour Galtabäcks Hamn.

The cottage features a small kitchen, and a living room with wall-to-wall carpeting. There are two bedrooms, one of which is a rebuilt hall. The bathroom features a WC, a washbasin,and a shower. Limited wifi in the house, 100 GB/month.

In the area there are mostly holiday homes. There are almost no traffic at all because the road ends here. Only a short walk if you want to take a swim in the sea. By car or by bike it is quite close to the small and cosy village Träslövsläge or the campingsite Björkäng with a chance to enjoy the sea or play mini golf.

Galtabäck is a great place for those who take an interest in boats. The harbour is very close, as is the boat museum where you can admire a number of boats typical of Halland. Every year, at the end of August, they arrange “Båtmuseets dag”. Your cottage is situated only 10 kilometres from the lovely town of Varberg, where you will find an array of shops, cafés, restaurants and more. Don't miss the old fortress, an interesting historical remnant. The lovely island Getterön is not far, this is an amazing place for bird watching. The island also offers excellent beaches, exhibitions, a boutique and a café.

From Galtabäck it's just a short 20-minute drive to the popular summer town of Falkenberg. Falkenberg offers plenty of beautiful walking paths and excellent fishing opportunities. There are also tennis- and riding possibilities. The popular beach Skrea strand is not far from the town centre, you can get there by bus or walk there. There are plenty of other lovely bathing spots within a few kilometres distance. Stroll through the Old Town and admire the picturesque view, stop for a coffee in one of Falkenberg's excellent cafés, such as Ståhlbom's and Borgmästargården. Take a walk along the River Ätran and admire the stunning view. Falkenberg offers shops, restaurants, bars, music events and many other activities.

Another nice place to visit is Tylösand, one of Sweden's most famous and popular beaches, situated close to Halmstad, about a 30 minute drive south from Falkenberg.

Welcome to a cute holiday home set on the beautiful west coast!

PLEASE NOTE: Neither of the bedrooms have doors, instead they have curtains in the doorways for privacy.

About the area

About Halland

Holidaying in Halland

A true summer paradise! Halland offers lovely beaches, beautiful nature, charming towns and good shopping. Kungsbacka has a small town feel yet still offers a wide selection of shops and restaurants. There are many great deals to be found in the Freeport shopping centre in Kungsbacka. A journey through historic grandeur awaits at Tjolöholm, a castle built in Tudor style at the end of the 19th century.

Shallow sandy beaches

The area's fantastic shallow sandy beaches are the main attraction for many visitors during the summer period. The most popular beaches in Halland are Tylösand, Mellbystrand, Skreastrand and Apelviken.

Varberg, the pearl of Sweden's west coast, is a popular tourist destination in the area. Many Swedes visit Varberg for a holiday or a long weekend break. Varberg offers lovely beaches, an exciting historical fortress and a lively market around the small town square. Apelviken, the largest of the beaches, is one of Europe's best locations for windsurfing and kitesurfing, so put your board under your arm and enjoy the action!

In 2018, Falkenberg received the "Worth a Visit" award in White Guide! In other words, great food is yet one more reason to visit fantastic Falkenberg.

Falkenberg has no less than 15 km of sandy beaches, offering everything from the popular Skreastrand beach, with its activities and After Beach entertainment, to quiet inlets where bathers can enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere.

Not just a seaside location

There are more than 500 lakes and many nice rivers in Halland. In other words, canoeing is a popular attraction in the area. So why not paddle up the Nissan rIver or go fishing for salmon in the Ätran rIver, a popular salmon fishing location. If you feel like going on an exciting sea fishing trip, you can hop on board in Falkenberg harbour.

A number of cycling and hiking trails wind their way through Halland. One tip for an active family day out is to hike a couple of sections of the Hallandsleden trail, or to hop on your bikes and ride a stretch of the Cykelspåret cycling trail.

A visit to the Gekås superstore in Ullared, Sweden's most visited shopping centre, is an absolute must! On the way there or back you can also stop at the Ätran river, a popular salmon fishing spot.

Halmstad is a popular destination during the summer, although there is also plenty to do and see in the city during the winter, with a wide selection of stores, restaurants and bars. There are a number of nice beaches in the area, the most popular of which is probably Tylösand. "Wonderland" is a popular playground attraction for families with children.

Laholm is a charming little town close to the well-known coastal resorts of Mellbystrand and Skummeslövstrand. The Lagan river is the best recreational fishing location for salmon and trout fishing. On the Hallandsås horst you can enjoy walking in the lovely beech woods. In the winter, Laholm is Sweden's southernmost ski resort.

Chalets in Halland

Our selection of holiday homes includes more than 130 chalets available for rent in wonderful Halland – from Kungsbacka in the north, all the way down to Mellbystrand in southern Halland.

To the south of Kungsbacka and Gothenburg lies beautiful Varberg with Apelviken. You will also find wonderful sandy beaches around Falkenberg, where the shallow, wide and comfortable Skreastrand beach is a particularly popular destination, or perhaps you may prefer to enjoy the attractions of Halmstad and lovely Tylösand on your holiday this year. Taking a barefoot stroll in the sand by the sea creates wonderful memories of childhood summers - memories you can now relive again and again.

The proximity to the sea provides the opportunity for wonderful days spent on lovely sandy beaches that stretch along the entire coast of Halland. During the summer period you will find at least one enjoyable After Beach spot in every town. A number of different events are held in the area, such as the Swedish Beach Volleyball Championships, music concerts and jazz festivals.

Beech woods, berries and mushrooms

Halland also has many large beech woods as well as excellent opportunities for those who enjoy picking berries and mushrooms. Welcome to Halland!

About Sverige

Skerries, city or skiing in Sweden?

Experience the unique Swedish skerries. Rent a canoe or kayak and paddle among the thousands of small islands with raw and naked rocks or the bigger, forest-clad islands that are easy to reach from the main land.

If you are looking for a bit more adventure then take a trip to Gothenburg with the amusement park Liseberg with fun for the entire family. Stockholm is the place to go, if you love a city with beautiful nature, lots of history, culture and beautiful, world class design. If you are looking for an active winter holiday in Sweden you will find both cross-country and alpine skiing in the Swedish mountains.

Holiday home in the Swedish nature

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. Sweden is a country full of oppositions and therefore also full of opportunities for a holiday suited just right for you and your family.

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.

Go on a luxury holiday in Sweden

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 is water, water and water

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 is a hit with the active family

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. If you have booked a holiday home near the cities Stockholm, Malmø and Gothenburg, you will find plenty of activities. Bring your family to the zoos, amusement parks, museums and more.

Experience Sweden's mighty forests

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.

Midsummer in Sweden

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.
